The last time we had nationwide gun control it spurned the creation of subcompact pistols. Today we're seeing that same notion taken a bit further with pistols like the XD-S having less than 10 rounds.
But when the Orcs or Goblins come will 10 rounds or less be enough? Would you walk into a gunfight with only 10 rounds? I wouldn't. But many people do and if you carry a compact weapon (or live in a state that has a 10 round limit---you should move by the way---then God bless ya) and it holds that many rounds (or less) then that's exactly what you're planning on.
That's why I'm of the opinion that revolvers are no longer ideal defense weapons. Same applies to those subcompacts that are limited to 10 rounds or less. The only reason why I even consider carrying a G26 is because I have the adapter to allow it to "neatly" carry the G19's fifteen round magazines.
Just my opinion. What's yours?
