Tyranny? I don't know. There is no amount of 30 round magazines that is going to help you defend against a drone strike...

Home defense I can rationalize it and hunting as well, even for sport shooting, there is a benefit to a 30 round magazine.

Loading mags is a PITA, I'd much rather spend my time at the range actually shooting...

Kuz for 40 round mags are just a tad to heavy........and 10 rounds is definately not enough.

I personally like the 20 round magazines,although I have plenty of 30s and a few 50 round mags,I still reach for the 20s.
