Does anybody know if the 40 cal BHP mags will fit in a 9mm and function like they will in the HS2000 or Glocks? Not sure if the mag dimensions are the same.

The dimensions are the same, but the feed lips aren't. I haven't tried... and it's probably not worth it with all of those 17 round mags on the market.

I don't LIKE the 17 round mags.

Nope, they won't work. As mentioned, feed lips are different. Mag body should be different as well, IIRC.

OK, I am now just confused... I jst read that some of the early 40 mags were just 9mm mags with the feed lips opened slightly. So why couldn't the lips be pinched a little?

You recall wrong. A .40 HP can be "converted" to 9mm with an entirely new top end and 9mm magazine. If the magazine bodies were different, this wouldn't be possible.
