I received the following tidbit of information in an unrelated discussion on a mailing list I'm on:
Might want to check your local laws concerning the Hi-Cap mags and CCW (License revocation type restrictions) I know here in TX, we are limited to 10 rnds unless you are Military or LE user unless the handgun & magazine was originally produced with more rnds before the Brady act....

I'm not in TX, so this wouldn't apply to me regardless, but is it actually true?

He seems to think that both the handgun model and it's mags need to have existed prior to the 9/94 ban. He's trying to give me a lecture on the ins and outs of CCW, though since I've been carrying for about as long as he has been alive (24 years) I'm pretty comfortable with my understanding of CCW in PA and how to carry. He was really uncomfortable with my discussion of possibly switching to a Para-Ordnance P.14.45 for every day carry. After all, he couldn't use one properly since they were too big for him to grip correctly, so obviously it would be a problem for me. Nothing like a little projection. I doubt I'll contimue the conversation; he's obviously a cluebie.

Complete BS. When I last took the class, it was made clear that it was legal for us to carry any magazine that was legal to own, regardless of the manufacture date of the pistol. We had guys with new glocks and old hi-cap mags for the shooting part of the test and it was one of the questions asked by the students. Since Texas has no laws concerning magazine capacity, that means anything legal by the 1994 AW ban is legal to use. Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

I just took my CHL class 3 months ago, no mention of not having hi-caps. Hope this guy doesn't have his TX CHL cause he doesn't seem to know shit about the law.
