Shooting tactical irons. Can you max out your pistol mag as long as the mag length is legal. XDM 19+1 to start then 19rds per mag after or are you limilted to just 10+1 like in USPSA production.

Under most 3-gun rules there is no capacity limit in Tactical and Open divisions - only the usual magazine length limits. Heavy Metal usually has a capacity limit and caliber restriction.

In the case of your XDM, feel free to load it to 19+1 capacity. Bear in mind tough that if you are shooting under USPSA rules you will be scored Minor PF on pistol targets. No such problem with outlaw matches, of course.

Would you be able to use the 22rd glock mags in a .40?

as long as the magazine is 140mm or less... you can have as many rounds as you can get in it.

I believe the Glock 22 round .40 mags are made with USPSA in mind and are legal at 140mm but you should measure one to be sure.

Capacity won`t put you into a different class, as long as the magazine is 140mm long. Anything over 140mm long on a double stack magazine puts you into open.

The 22 round Glock mags are NOT legal for Tactical. They are only about 1/4" shy of being 170mm, so they are fine for Open division.

I use pistol gear extensions for 28+1 in my XDm 5.25 but I also shoot in open.
