    Default how many rounds in a Pistol

    When I lived in NY there was a round limit in auto loading pistols for hunting, IF the barrel was over 5 inches (5 rnds), under 5 and you could have 15 rnds in the mag (not any more with the safe act).
    Anyway, I was wondering if there was a similar Hunting law up here if I were to put a 6" or 9" barrel in my Glock 20.

    Your a Free man here.
    Knowing your Rights and exercising them is an awesomely spiritual thing.....each pull of the trigger.

    Not only can you own a Grendel P-30 30 shot Pistol , you can hunt with it and, you can put it in your pocket and carry it most anywhere in AK'cept Bars, courthouse and schools , all over the state, without a 'permit' to exercize them Rights...... and theres no Nanny State to ask permission of, we trust you as free citizen and watch over yourself, and defend yourself.

    Feel free to conceal a gun today...prehaps an AK-47 pistol with a 75 round drum, tucked in your pants.....just because you can.
    If you can't Kill it with a 30-06, you should Hide.

    As has been stated previously: You ain't in Noo Yawk anymore. Kind of refreshing, isn't it?

    Check the regs... what's there is important. What's not there is important too.

    You'll find a refreshing lack of such pointless nonsense as how many rounds you can put in a weapon.

    No truer words have ever been spoken...!!!

    I can't believe how many guys I know, as well as guys on this forum, that try and read something into the regs that just isn't there.......
