I just got a 33 round magazine for my Glock 19 today. I did not buy it for any real practical purpose, I just think they are cool and think it will be fun at the range. In one of your writings (forgive me, I don't remember which) I saw that you had a Barretta 92 with a 20 round magazine in it as a bedside home defense option. The 33 rounder seems slightly too big to be practical, but I keep all my Glock 19 mags loaded, and the 33 rounder will be no exception. If I ever did use it for home defense, would it be used against me? They are legal where I live (Oregon), but so are 3.5lb connectors and I have heard you (and many others) advise against that.
Thankyou for your contributions to the firearms community,

I would expect opposing counsel to invoke images of Jared Lee Laughner. Your side would counter with the fact that a home defense weapon might likely be accessed in an emergency when one wasn't "dressed for the occasion" and spare ammo pouches were not likely to be on one's person.
