You all know I am a gun owner by now.
I assume that the entire US will have adopted California gun laws by the end of 2013 and I don’t mind. It’s annoying, but I don’t care. I am really more of a Mousegun/Bolt/Single-shot gun sort of guy, anyway.
I really would be happy to just own my .22LR CZ 452 “Special Military Training rifle.” — the long rifle in the photo and not anything more than the 22-calibre rifle you might have shot as a child. It has 5-round detachable magazine, is a “tack driver,” the ammo is cheap, and I also have a couple 10-round magazines as well. It’s a perfect thing.
In the spirit of the California law, if my choices are limited to a 10-round capacity, I will only buy firearms with a 10-round or fewer capacity. I never understood why people would even buy a Glock 17 — a 17-round capacity magazine — and put a California-approved 10-round magazine in there. I have a Glock 26, the Baby Glock (not for babies) and it has a native 10-round capacity. That’s what I would own.
I will surely miss my new favorite pistol, my CZ 75B, though, with its native 16-round-capacity. And yes, I like it enough that I would buy California-compliant 10-round magazines in order to keep it — but that’s an exception. The CZ’s really a nice piece.
