Or you could be smart and do it outside with your firing pin removed on guns that have a high potential for slam fires...like that one. Or just test fire it next time you go out.

If you have a gun go full auto indoors with a 30 round mag good luck man. A guy sat down a JA9 on a shooting bench a few years ago and it went full auto, shooting him and IIRC his wife or buddy at a range.

That design is unsafe to hand cycle, much like Hi Points. I had a J22 slam fire on me from the action closing before and double tap my bed. Luckily I was following proper safety procedures.
That would be exciting. Did not know that about the Jimenez or Hi Points. HiPoints are prone to slam fire?

People get excited around here when you start racking the slide outside. Urban yuppies.

How deep did the .22" LR slugs penetrate into the bed?

The Hi Point isn't really prone to it because of the counterweight system but the firing pin does hit the primer at the end of the slide stroke which could fire the gun.

The Jennings pistols will slamfire with weak springs or worn sears though.

Is anyone here from Miami and know where I can get extended clip for J.A. 9 mm
Not from Miami but if you post a pic of the standard magazine, especially the top and the notch for the mag catch, we can prolly set you on the right path.

I bet they use "what I call" a standard European doubl stack, like a Beretta, CZ, Browning Hi Power, Tanfoglio, etc. Pretty close to an S&W too, but I have not verified that one myself.

If you have Googled the jimmy-knees 30 round magazine and got no hits, I suspect it is a custom. I suspect that anyway...

Just watched the video, dood says he made it. Custom. Looked like he taped 2 together, or the tape was just a wrap for the lower half.
If this is a euro-spec magazine, you can just cut your own Notch for the mag catch in a Beretta 30 (or 32) round magazine. I have a couple of those for my Browning HP and I think they are 32 rounds.
Good luck, it's hard to measure accurately since you have to measure from the slanted top of the magazine, down to the catch notch.
