Say that Congress decides to split the difference on the AWB, and is going to either renew the ban as to assault weapons OR high caps, but not both. I know that you would rather have both ride off into the sunset, but which is more important to you?

Why?

That's alot like asking "which do you prefer to have ripped off, your right nut or the left one?" [whacko] Mike

[nuts] Both bans need to be gone so I can't answer the question. Although high cap mags are useless without weapons to put them in.

a post ban AR still does the same thing that a pre ban does but I would be really pissed if I only had 10rds.

Most of the features on the "banned" firearms were cosmetic any way so it doesn't really matter all that much. On the other hand, it'd be nice to get a hi-cap(standard cap really)mag for a Glock without have to mortage the house to do it. Mags are what make guns run. They are the heart of the system, if you can't get a good mag you may as well just give up. I can live without a flash hider or a bayonet lug but it'd be nice to have reasonable priced mags again.

I'd like them to put barrel threads on the "legal" list for post-bans.. besides that.. everything else to me is cosmetic except, perhaps, flash hider. Hi-caps .. are you a fed? [>:/]

High caps are illegal? -HS

Who has "assault weapons"? Not me. I have semi auto-matic rifle(s) with hi-caps.

The recreational firearms users will want the hicaps more than an other feature. The professional users will want the flash supressor more than any other feature. My night vision is more important than having more than 10 rounds between reloads.

Yeah, but then again, "professional" users will always retain access to the good stuff. Look at all the stuff that's stamped "LE/Gov Only". Me, I want the full caps. I like the Flash suppressors, and collapsable stocks, but I actually use my mags every time I go shooting. Ghost

Full-capacity magazine, definitely. The cosmetic features ban only affects semi-auto, mag-fed rifles, but the 10-rnd limit affects every magazine-fed weapon made. Plus, I'd much rather have 15-rounders for my 9mm pistol and 30-rounders for the Beretta 9mm carbine I want, and a just-for-the-hell-of-it 75-round drum for my SAR-1.
