So who else short loads their sidearm mags to reflect real capacities?
I "real" load my pistol mags. On my Sig & Glock 15 is enough and on the 1911 it just works better with less in the mag so it's 7. I have a lot of spare mags though for the pistols also so I don't feel the urge to cram them full.
