    I am getting conlicting information on hi-cap (or whatever the correct term is for over 10 round) centerfire ammo mags.

    Are they or are they not now legal for us to buy in CA?

    I believe you can only purchase hi cap mags manufactured before the ban took effect in your state, only from people inside the state. You can't buy any newly manufactured mags, or buy them from out of state. I don't live in Kommiefornia though, so I may or may not be mistaken.

    NO:( If you have one from before they were banned you can keep it.

    But they don't sell new ones and they don't let you bring them with you when you move here. I don't believe you can even transfer them to family. But I could be wrong. I believe that if you buy a preban firearm and it has hi-cap mags that's okay. But basically if you don't have any you won't be able to get any.:banghead:

    That is, somehow, even worse than I thought.

    The correct term is standard capacity because for example the Glock 19 mags were originally 15 rounds. The 10 rounders were reduced capacity so during the AWB the standard ones were called high capacity and the name stuck after it expired because for 10 years "standard" meant 10 rounders.
    I did a speech on the limit in college and congress admitted the 10 round limit was totally arbitrary and had no bearing on anything. Your .gov at work.
