I was talking single mags; those AK drum mags aren't light or pocket-friendly, nor are the extended pistol mags.

I use standard capacity mags (about ten 16 & 17 rounders for the CZ75b & about ten or twelve 13 rounders for the XD45 & a few each for the others with a short stack for the SKS and some strippers ready to go in some Chinese ammo vest thing).

Florida is lucky in that respect.
Imagine how freaking hot and heavy a black rifle would be in that heat. I wonder if the AK is available in all stainless or chrome for those people.

i can easily carry 9-30 round mags for my AR with another one loaded into it which gives me a loadout of 300 rounds of ammo.

That's not true. You're not taking into account the weight of the magazines.

If your goal is a 100 round load, it will be lighter to carry 3-4 30 rounders vice 10 10 rounders.

Therefore if lighter weight is your goal, standard capacity magazines (IE 30 rounds on an AR) still win out vs handicapped magazines.

Alaska has no magazine capacity laws up here. People move up here to get away from the crap you guys do down there.

The good thing about 5.56x45 is that you can carry more individual rounds, in terms of weight, since they way less, obviously.

Another good thing about it is the very light recoil.

The bad thing is that it has only nominal stopping power. It is not a crushing round. So by the time you put 2 to 3 rounds into a moving target, you are back to the 308 issue with ammo weight.

I have found the 10 round Ruger mags to be somewhat ideal actually. They are very similar to the M-1 Garand clips. They fit perfectly in the M-1 Garand bandoleers. And 10 of them loaded -- the bandoleer capacity -- is a perfect weight. Two of the bandoleers is not impossible either, just a bit heavier.

I can see why the magazine vests have become popular with the military now. When you move the ammo weight to your chest away from your hips, it is easier to carry.

Back in the day, we did not have ammo vests. We used mag pouches on our cartridge belts, albeit with deuce gear suspenders, but still cumbersome when worn on your belt.

There is virtually no difference.

Three 10 round Ruger mag's weigh virtually the same as one 30 rounder.

The difference in weight is less than that of two coins in your pocket.

One more smart reason to get a Ruger mini versus an AR or AK.

I'm an active duty Marine. Some of your terminology is decidedly not-Marine to me. I also work with many Soldiers and am good friends with several. They also do not use your terms. Which service were you in again?

Case in point, "magazine vest" is not a Marine term. I believe you are looking for "flak jacket," or "magazine carrier," or more accurately "SAPI carrier," or even "plate carrier."

"Cartridge belt" is usually a "pistol belt" or even a "duty belt."

"Deuce gear suspenders" is close I suppose. But I've never heard "suspenders" associated with deuce gear. "782 gear" is also acceptable.

Oregon has a 5rd limit for semi auto rifles when Hunting any game animal this does not apply when hunting varmints. And of course when hunting birds the 3rd total applies from Federal law.

Other then that no mention of magazine size in Oregon law. That I know of as a hunter here for 45 years and a shooter here for 51.
