It's easy to forget how important that is, since most of us go to the range only during the day. Firing any gun makes a flash, but some are worse. I fired a .44 mag revolver in pitch black once. The flash from the gasses coming out of the cylinder-barrel gap goes out like a sunburst. I couldn't see shit for about 5 seconds. Really drove home the importance of flash management. The ports on this one do look like they're out the sides, so that would help. The old upward-facing Magnaport ports would have been awful at night.

MOST defensive ammo is made to reduce flash for this very reason but barrel length does make a difference too. Flash comes from 2 things, unburnt powder (which is what you see in revolvers cylinders) and slow burning powder that are mostly use in Magnum calibers or heavy bullets to get more velocity. So revolvers you get the worst of the 2. Of course when you pair this with a short barrel you get flash.

Shoot a 44 Special out of your 44 Magnum in the same circumstances and see if you get the same effect.

Another way to get around flash blindness is to add a a flash light.

Anyone from VA?

I'm trying to make sense of this :

https://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/leg...192+ful+HB4021

It says any handgun with a magazine over 10 would be illegal. But further down it says this
"A. For purposes of this section, "large-capacity firearm magazine" means any firearm magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has the capacity of, or can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition, including any such device with a removable floor plate or end plate if the device can be readily extended to accept more than 10 rounds of ammunition. "Large-capacity firearm magazine" does not include (i) a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has been permanently altered so that it cannot accept more than 10 rounds of ammunition or (ii) an attached tubular device designed to accept and only capable of operating with .22 caliber rimfire ammunition.".

Does this mean that a g26 is illegal because it can accept any 9mm Glock mag ? I know aftermarket mag extensions are available for virtually every serious pistol. My 10 round hks have available +2 or whatever so those would technically be illegal as well right?

Virtually every autoloading pistol would be illegal overnight in VA.

The only pistols I can think of that might fly are certain kahrs, small Sig's, Smith Wesson shield and Walther pps.

With VA totally blue including the county where I reside this will likely pass.

For those of you outside of VA I'm sure there will be a fire sale of used firearms on GunBroker. They're already cheap as is relatively speaking.

Can a hk45c or usp45c take the bigger magazines of the normal usp?

Does anyone have a Smith Wesson mp45 subcompact 2.0? Are the full size magazines compatible with the smaller 45s that hold 8?

I've seen 1911 mags over 10 rounds for .45 but not 9mm.

Does anyone make a 9mm 1911 magazine over 10?


I'm trying to plan for the worst.

Thanks.

Enjoy your rights while you can. I imagine this virus of "gun control" will eventually sweep the USA.

The gun owners in VA couldn't even come out and vote. They sat on their asses taking their rights for granted. Many I spoke to didn't even know there was an election and think a democrat VA could never F with their gun rights. Hopefully they'll learn their lesson and actually vote from now on. But then we have the issue of the Democrats trying to redraw districts in their favor.

I'm trying to leave the state but it isn't easy with kids.

This reminds me, I need to ship my guns to Texas. Question for those that live in Texas though, how many firearms can you transfer in one day?

Its not illegl til you put a mag in it of more than 10 rounds.

Honestly, in the country as a whole, gun laws have become less and less restrictive. Only a few states are not "shall issue"

Its funny you say that, I live in PA. My work phone must have previously been a VA number as I got those spam political texts telling me to vote for X candidate in the VA election, I responded you dummy I live two states away.

If you own them, you can just bring them in. Just be aware if driving them in, check any state you pass through that have strict gun laws and avoid.

It seems even Texas has some anti gun politicians in office. Laws seem to always be tightening rather than loosening.

Oh I know I can bring them. Moving there in February but if this new law in Va kicks in January, I want to ship them out before that. It would also make the drive easier.

You can ship it there but to yourself sp you don't have to pay a transfer fee.

If shipping to a friend's house, be sure to let them know not to open the box.

Depends on what you want the next one for..

1911 is a classic.. everyone should have one eventually.

I'm eyeing the Sig five seven 9mm.. shot one at a event and it was really solid. The tungsten polymer mix really made the frame rock solid.

Conceal firearms i like my M&P9C the most, but Shield is decent but starting to carry the Sig P365 on place of the Shield due to the bullet capacity.

Got a Hudson H9.. kind of cool but because they went out of business it could be risky of getting a lemon. Mine shoots fine but haven't shot enough to determine the reliability.

HK make some solid guns too but can get pricey. I like the VP9 but rarely take it out.

CZ SP-01 are pretty nice too.

Man this list can go on...

I have a Beretta 687 Silver Pigeon III cal. Limited edition. Used approx twice a month on clays and several times a year on driven shoots. Used also on local farmland (with permission to shoot vermin such as pigeon/crows etc).

Gun licence much rarer in the UK.

But it'll be a sickness. Them you'll want a 9mm lw commander, a 9mm government, yada yada. Cheapest id buy is a Colt. Spend more and buy a Dan Wesson.

I'll second HK. .45 and .40 hks are a steal right now on gun broker.

Cz75. Beretta 92. List goes on.

G19 of course.
