    Could somone list the States that are NOT allowed to have High Capacity Magazines.

    I was on NRA site and FBI and couldnt find anywhere of all the states listed.

    I know of CA, IL, NY, NJ, CO, HI, MA, Washington DC.

    If there is a more complete list that would be great.

    Also some citites inside States should just be included as a whole State.

    This would be an updated High Cap Outlaw as of this date.

    Thanks Alot!:cool:

    I don't know about the rest of your list, but IL allows high capacity magazines. Only Cook County does not.

    What I would do is go to a online retailer like MidwayUSA or Natchez and see who they restrict sales to. I would think they would be up on the laws.

    In CA you can have them just as long s you owned them in state prior to our ban. There is a gray area that has not been tested in court, known as rebuild kits, essentially mags brought in after the ban but disassembled.

    In Maryland you can not buy or transfer magazines with more then 20 rounds. Not illegal to possess though.

    New Jersey's limit is 15 rounds, which is both good and bad news. We do have a politician trying to take us down to 5 rounds, if you can believe it.

    There's a gray area on mags in Ohio. If a weapon can fire "more than 31 rounds without reloading, it's a machine gun" under state law. Even though you can buy things like 33 round Glock mags, AK drums, and Beta Mags in Ohio, you cannot load more than 30 rounds in them. Companies like AIM Surplus will not sell > 30 round mags to Ohio residents.

    To expound on this:
    Maryland states that you cannot -
    Buy
    Offer to buy

    Sell
    Offer to sell

    Give
    Offer to give

    Trade
    Offer to trade

    Manufacture
    Offer to manufacture

    HOWEVER!!!!!!
    You can:
    Go into any other state, where "Standard Capacity" (aka/ hi-capacity) magazines are sold or offered for sale, and purchase as many as you can afford and physically carry back into the state, legally!!!!!

    For example - I can drive a tractor-trailer truck into Virginia, and purchase and fill that trailer, and bring it back into Maryland and LEGALLY own those magazines.




    Maryland. "The Free State".:rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    When you say high capacity mags, you sound like a liberal anti. The correct term is 'standard capacity magazines' ;).

    That's usually a good show, but with all this madness going on, I'm going to skip this one.

    I just know its going to be crazy.

    LOL,, so true.

    Thanks guys for your help.

    I came across some Pmags and snatched them up.

    Thinking of it as buying Peony Stocks and seeing what shakes out here with the AWB.

    Guy recently said they were going for $100 at a guy show,, and I also have seen 33 rd Glock mags for for $112 on Ebay
