I'm new to handgun ownership (just got my carry permit from NYS a couple weeks ago), and in the process a few questions have arisen:
First, many weapons come with either 10 round magazines (required here in NY, as I'm sure many of you know) or the "normal" higher capacity mags. Can I generally just get the smaller magazines and put them in, or do manufacturers actually make different models for the different magazine capacities? I'm looking at having a gun shipped in (via gunbroker.com, perhaps), and it would be a lot easier if I could just tell the seller to leave the larger mags out, rather than having to make sure I get the "10 round model."
Second, I've been looking at getting a Ruger MkII or MkIII, but I've seen (on this forum and others) people complaining about the magazine disconnect safety on the MkIII. Any thoughts/opinions/ideas?
