Okay here is a question - now I am wondering if I should just get some 10 rd magazines for my 9 mm or purchase a 45 ACP with 10 round magazines.

What would I be giving up with 9 mm vs 45 ACP?

For your last question, I don't see the point of a 10 round 9mm. One of the benefits of a 9mm is capacity. If you don't have that, why not go for the bigger bullet.

I personally own the Magnum Research Baby Eagle in .45 ACP. It is a great gun. Light recoil for a .45, natural pointer, reliable as a Glock, SIG, or Ruger, and holds 10 rounds. Decent gun and costs maybe slightly less than a Glock so it won't break the bank.

If budget isn't an issue and you can find one, I really like the HK 45 but didn't want to spend the money.

If you want a more common brand, I was pretty close to buying the S&W M&P in .45 ACP as well. I didn't want a striker fired pistol though, thus the Baby Eagle. I can't personally attest to how good it is, but my research was generally positive.

I like the M&P 45 and would look at the XD too. The Glock will not fit my hand.
Huh? The 9mm is a high pressure round and you had no problem with that. There is nothing wrong with the .40 S&W. If you really want a .45 go ahead.

AND, why in God's name would you willingly move to Kali? Waco? Really?

In a magazine capacity restricted state, it would seem the size of the firearm would basically be determined by caliber. For example, a full-sized Glock 17 would not make as much sense as a smaller 9mm pistol would; extra mag area is just empty space. It would seem to me that the ideal pistol would be the smallest comfortable-to-hold pistol that would hold ten rounds of your preferred caliber. In 9mm, i would be looking at the subcompact pistols, like the Kahr CW9 or something along those lines. Kali would seem like the ideal 1911 heaven.

During the original AWB the trend I saw right away was an introduction of smaller concealable handguns or a greater interest in higher caliber weapons.

Restricting magazine capacity is pointless. People will just look for other ways to maximize their advantage. Just human nature.

This is just my opinion: If I was restricted to 10 rounds I would get a revolver chambered in a magnum cartridge. I have a Charter 357. It is awesome! The muzzle blast will deter most armed attackers. Yet, I can put the charter in a pocket holster and carry it in any pants that have a belt.

Well, I have a 9 mm and the woman I love is in CA and has small children and will not move for 8 yrs - then we will probably settle in AZ. I will keep my normal magazines and just disassemble them IAW CA law. She is probably gonna get me a 45 anyway once I move there I have a feeling.

As to 40 S&W had one in a SD40 and the recoil was manageable but felt it was not a good trade off - IE the recoil disadvantage over the 9mm did not overcome the increased wounding potential of the 40 over the 9 mm in my opinion and ammo for either the 9mm or 45 acp are easy to reload or obtain
