1994 not a lot of anything sold on the internet.
Gun shows and gun shops were the main source. They were fairly plentiful in Houston at shows but were $100 or more a piece. The entire 1994 ban just sucked if you wanted anything over 10 rounds. All of your new handguns would come with 10 round mags. Felt wrong buying a Beretta 92 with a 10 round mags for example.
Of course that helped lead me to the 1911 platform so it did have it's upside
I do disagree with you they will be Grandfathered this time as well. I have not seen anything saying otherwise in any proposed legislation.
