    I ordered a 50 round drum mag for Glocks from Buds for $99. I know it is not practical, but it will be fun. Plus, I plan to keep it loaded for emergency use.

    I will let you know how it works.

    BTW, Cheaper than dirt wants $179 for the same mag. Made in Korea

    You know you'll need a compensator to compensate the weight of that mag--
    I figure one about 6 ft long shud do :p

    What kind of holster will accommodate that set-up?

    My only objection to extended handgun magazines is that they completely change the balance and 'feel' of the weapon.

    And that is not a good thing.


    They could be fun for plinking, though.

    Practical? No. Fun as he11, yes. Good luck and I suggest a compensator setup.

    I have one for my G17. No comp needed. And yes, fun! Plus it works with my Sub 2000 which is sweet!

    I would not use if for emergency unless I was 99.9% sure it would work when needed.

    I agree. I would not use something for defense unless it was an item I trained with regularly and had confidence in its function, aside from an absolute emergency of course.
    However, 50 rd. mags for my Glocks sounds like a great idea if for no other reason than THEY don't want me to have them.
