When you pay to go to the range, you want to spend as much time as possible shooting, not reloading, which an extended magazine can assist with. Or suppose you’re in a situation where you are forced to defend yourself. You can’t afford to waste precious few seconds reloading.
Not to mention reloading becomes 1,000 times more difficult in a high-pressure, self-defense situation for the average shooter, which can lead to a fumbled reload.
That’s why many people own semi-automatic pistols. Semi-autos offer the ability to carry more ammo in a magazine body than a revolver’s cylinder. However, some guns, such as the Taurus G2C, only come with 10 or 12-round factory magazines, while other semi-autos enable the user to pack 15+ rounds with a double-stacked, offset, or staggered configuration.
Hence, the need for an extended Taurus G2C magazine. With the larger magazine, you reap several benefits, primarily the ability to carry more ammunition, but aftermarket mags are often made with better materials and designed to avoid reliability issues that can plague lower-quality standard magazines.
With that said there are several factors to consider before purchasing extra magazines. How large of a capacity do you need? Can you accurately handle the additional weight? Will your Taurus G2C still fit in your holster with an extended mag? How often can you train to become proficient in operating your Taurus with a larger capacity?
Let’s dive in.
