    I have some Glocks with high capacity magazines. Also some gen4 glocks. Is it illegal for me to travel to California with any of them? Can I move there and keep my guns?

    1. Why would you move there?:eek:

    2. You will need to get 10rd mags.

    I agree. As pretty as CA is its going to be hard for me to ever think about moving there. 10 round mags if you want to move there. My advice. If you do move buy lots of mags and keep a spare 1 or 5 on your person. :)

    That is if you can actually get a CCW.

    Very interesting. Suppose I moved to California and left my magazines here. Then my 102 year old uncle brought them down and gave them to me right before he died. I possess the magazines legally and don't have to say or prove how I got them. My uncle could have been prosecuted for importing, but he's safe from that now:
    1. California restricts certain things about magazines greater than 10 rounds; it has created a silly legal name for them - "large-capacity magazines" - and says we 'regular people' cannot import, sell or manufacture them. ("Dealer" FFLs may get licenses from DOJ for these activities; curio and relic licensees cannot.) The restriction applies to both centerfire and rimfire weapons.
    2. It is perfectly legal - no restrictions at all in the Penal Code - to own and possess and use those "large-capacity magazines" in any gun*(see footnote), at any time, under any circumstances where it is legal to use a gun. Ownership, possession and use of "large-capacity magazines" are not crimes in PC; there is no section under which you could be charged.
    3. Those who own "large-capacity magazines" are not required to keep records or receipts, and not required to explain how they got them.
