    Among others, the semi-auto version of the Thompson uses a 30 round magazaine. The Volunteer Arms lookalike for the Thomspons used the same mags (I think)

    Vector Arms makes an .45 semi auto UZI carbine that has a 30 rounder.

    Promag makes 30 round magazines for all kinds of pistols. A 45 acp 30 shot mag is going to feel like you have a brick tied on the handle of your gun.

    It feeds from Glock mags, do they make a 30 round mag' or is it a 28 rounder?

    I had a Sig 220x6 that I converted a 25 round drum for a 1911 to work with it. It held 30 rounds after.

    Interesting, but 30 round magazines are for folks who spray and pray. 9 well placed .45 acp rounds is generally enough for all practical purposes. If more than nine are needed, you probably need a different type of weapon.

    What if there are more than 9 assailants who just dont know when to quit. I love my 1911, but its not the best zombie killer due to its low round capacity, then again how often do you run into a hoard of zombies?

    90 rounds of 5.56 weighs less than 30 rounds of .45. If you need that kind of capacity a rifle is a better friend than a handgun or handgun round.

    Well yes but, most .45 pistols weigh less than a rifle. No mechanic has one tool that fixes every job.

    What about that helmet on The Fairly Odd Parents that used some sort of telekinesis to fix things. I'm pretty sure that was the one tool for every job.

    In a simple shoot and reload situation it would not be dificult to empty and reload 4, 8 round mags in say 40 seconds. That would be 32 rounds.

    Yeahhhh... If a single stack just doesnt float your boat and a drum mag is too bulky to lug around, try getting a xdm or glock with the 13 round mags double stack, changes are quick and mags stack like any other, just heavy if your really carrying that many of, well almost any caliber....

    But since the OP mentioned a Thommy gun I figured he might be open to a rifle, carbine, or a AR pistol chambered in a rifle round.

    A Glock or HK in .45 with 3 mags would be easier for packing concealed I suppose.
