Yes, I realize (now) that a 10-round magazine makes the Ruger CA and MA-compliant. D’oh! And I have an even better answer to my own question: the SR9c (with the 10-rounder) is ideal for concealed carry and combat-distance accuracy. You can then surmount the ammo problem by carrying two spare large (17 round) mags for SHTF-i-tude. Yes BUT— is there anyone out there with a compact gun who hasn’t seriously pinched the bottom of their carry hand when jamming in a new mag? (The rabbi has an actual scar.) Anyway, great gat (review to follow). What’s your take on this conundrum?
