    With so much talk about prebands mags, We all know it is legal to have, but what about to use at the shooting range?

    I have used them at an outdoor shooting range with no problem, but got a lot of looks.:cool:

    Now I'm just wondering is it something to worry about or just keep-on shooting and have fun?

    Thanks All

    Can you tell us exactly what is a "preband" magazine?

    I must admit that I may not be up to speed on per-bans, but I have 2 questions.

    If they are legal why do you worry?

    How in the world would anybody know unless you were making a big deal out of them.

    I'm reffering to hi cap mags. IE: 15+ in Calif. Now if you had them before 2000 sure it is legal as I said, but what about to use. I'm stuck on that one.

    Do you mean like the 33rd mags? Because the 15-17 round glock mags look exactly like the 10 rounders.

    Poohgyrr trout fear me!

    The CA version says you can keep (ie. use) any mags holding more than ten rounds, if you owned them before the ban began.

    As I understand, the Hawaii version says you can't keep (or use) your old mags, you have to turn them in or destroy them or whatever.

    Since the official Democratic platform plans to bring back the national bans on both magazines and AR's, and make them permanent, we'll have to see what their new law actually says.

    Currently if one lives in a Free state and you have Standard Capacity magazines no one cares one way or another what magazines or how many rounds are used in a gun.

    Standard capacity is the capacity the gun was designed around to use,not something of some capacity a politician decides sounds better or makes them feel better about.

    So much talk?

    Dunno what you're talking about... nobody around here talks about it. We can use full cap mags.

    Don't see THAT many threads on GT about it either.
    And... if you're allowed to OWN it, don't see why you couldn't USE it.
