California for sure. I think New Jersey, too.

I think www.packing.org could help you. I am not sure, but I think MD is also on the list.

CA nothing over 10 (unless used in a registered "assault weapon" I guess)
NJ nothing over 20
MA has something -- dunno what for sure though.

I'm no expert though -- I don't even live there.

Correction: NJ max is 15.

Exceptions exist for blocked magazines, proceed carefully there.

Wow dude, you're alive. I was beginning to think they captured you at the NJ border and held you back.

Wrong, magazines are regulated independantly of AWs. Even registered MACHINE GUN owners cannot import standard-capacity magazines after 1/1/2000 in CA.

NOBODY but police officers can.

I am obviously -WAY- under informed in this area -- so I probably shouldn't have opened my mouth. However, I'm just as interested in the original poster I guess.

I thought with CA (gleaned this somewhere from Jim March's posts) that you could have over 10 rounds in some way, shape, or form. Grandfathered in if you had a registered "assault weapon" or some-such nonsense. Am I correct here?

The parent was asking about shipping though -- so I guess you're answering his question exactly: nobody can import anything over 10 rounds to CA anymore.

Well, the main reason I asked is that I have some glock hi-caps for sale on the boards here and someone from CA e-mailed and said it was ok to ship them to him and it didn't quite sound right to me. I just wanted to double check...

in CA b/4 the ban,you are still allowed to own them but you may not sell them or import them into the state.
Making it profitable for sellers outside of CA to sell to the untold thousands of gun owners,whose memory is kinda fuzzy and who remember buying them in CA before the ban ...because NO ONE would disobey a law and go on over to AZ/NV/OR and buy an unmarked Standard Capacity Mag!! Because there is no way to prove you did not have that mag b/4 the ban;) :p :cool:

Maryland - nothing over 20 rounds can be sold in the state. Although it's quasi-legal to travel outside of MD, buy 30rd. AR mags, and bring them home.

The law is not particularly well-enforced.

I don't mean to answer for Jamz, but I assume he intended that as a poke at our Leftist leaders in this state. I laughed!

Anyway you can buy Hi-Cap magazines in Massachusetts, if they were produced before the ban (I think). But how can you prove they are pre-ban without papers? You can't, so you just have to take the dealers word.

if they were produced after the ban, they wouldn't be legal in any state, right?

Those are not states any longer. They are independent neo-marxist humanist sheeple republics

I believe that to be true. But how can you tell if the Hi-Cap you are buying is Pre-Ban? You take the dealers word for it.

What I meant to say is that you can get pre-ban standard capacity mags here in MA, but you have to have a "class A" License to carry (this applies to rifles too, go figure). If you have an ordinary Class B License to Carry (which does not permit you to carry a firearm loaded, again, go figure) you are not allowed anything over 10 rouunds, and if you have an FID card (Firearms Identification card, applicable if you want to posess a rifle, shotgun, ammunition, or even MACE) you are also only allowed 10 rounds.

This state's gun laws are just retarded. "Ze paperss" in this case, is a Class A LTC.
