    I know it's illegal to buy or sell or transfer a handgun magazine over 10 rounds in California. Does this mean I can possess one?

    I would like to drive from Colorado to California for a visit, with my Glock 19 and its 15 round magazine, but I can't figure out whether that's legal.

    thanks

    only legal if you owned it in the state prior to the ban

    ya, depending on the range, they may not check/care... but IF you are caught with it, you are FUCKED.

    Don't do it.

    While it's true that its not illegal to buy reg capacity mags, only illegal to sell them or to bring them into the state, I wouldn't be surprised if a DA decided to charge someone as a principle for aiding and abetting in the sale of them through buying them.

    On the other hand, there are some....interesting....exceptions for who is allowed to buy them. I remember CGN was figuring out how to get them into the state legally awhile ago, but I don't know what the status of that is.
