Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, keep pushing for stricter gun laws as they continue to own weapons for recreational purposes, including the same type of gun used in the January 2011 shooting rampage that left Giffords wounded.
However, the couple’s 9 mm Glock holds fewer bullets than the one used the Tucson shooting spree. Limiting the size of ammunition magazines is one of the goals of a new political action committee formed by Giffords and Kelly.

Kelly was shown shooting pots and water bottles off large rocks in a desert area with Giffords watching from a porch.
For target practice, Kelly said he uses a 9 mm Glock with a magazine that can hold 17 rounds.
