#1
Ok all you older Veterans ( anyone can join in)

Lets go back to the middle 60's Vietnam.
1911/ .45 with 7 round mags.
Order came down - Only load 6 rounds in 7 round mags.
Never fully load a .45 mag.

Anyone remember the order?
I know the number of rounds have
changed but do you sill load one less round ?

We were told the same thing at Camp LeJeune in 1978 for our 1911s.

Funny, as I can't load 10 rds in my Glock 30 mags, which are supposedly designed to do so.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

I'm not quite that old, but I'm just glad my 1911 holds 16 + 1. Tongue

I forget what the Navy put in their .45's when I served, but then again, I forget a lot of things from those days... Rolleyes

You have a 9mm 1911. What make? Say Wilson, I'll be so jealous!

If they take our guns, who will protect our children?

Probably a Para Ordnance, P-14 .45 with plus 2's (or an Armscor, Para clone)

Bingo! Para "Pre-Ban" (not sure why they called them that) 15 rnd. mags, which easily hold 16 and very close to 17, but I don't want it too tight.

5 inch Limited LDA .45 weighs a metric shit ton with loaded mag.
