I guess thats the difference. My first gun was a glock 15rds of .40 then a g17 17rds of 9mmLeopardcurdog said:Not at all. I carry a 5 shot revolver most of the time, so 8 seems like a lot. I've got a 70 series Gov mdl 1911 that I carry some, and I don't think a thing about it "only" having 8 rounds. But I grew up with revolvers, and that was long before these high cap semi's.
