    Yup it sucks for sure.

    As for going through LAX, the dozen times I have flown down through there I have had no problems going in or out. Declare it at departure, pick it up at arrival. Done deal.

    Have a safe trip buddy. On the plus side, they drive 100 mph everywhere, so you will be out of dodge in no time.

    Disassemble the normal capacity magazine and carry only the parts in your checked baggage. Once across the California border, reassemble the parts into a complete magazine.

    I thought about that actually. Do you really think that's a legit option?

    Absolutely 100%.

    Large-capacity magazines in California - Calguns.net <See posts up to and including #5. Magazine parts are not controlled, only assembled magazines.

    Just deal with it... why risk a felony? I'm guessing the odds of needing more than 8 rounds in 4 hour visit are pretty low. I'm guess the odds of needing more than 2 clips during your entire trip are about zero.
    The crappy airport food is probably a bigger threat to your life.

    Carrying a gun isn't about odds. It's about what's at stake.

    I think you missed the point here. I will be on a 3 day/ 2 night road trip. Not just a 4 hour drive through CA.

    No I got you... I just think the food at the airport is a bigger threat to your life than traveling with mags that "only" have 8-10 rounds. Unless the car is full of drugs it's not like you're going to evading wild hordes. If it makes you feel more comfortable, buy a high capacity mag when you cross the boarder in AZ. The risk to your life of only having 10 round mags isn't nearly as high as risking a felony and not being able to have a gun in the future.

    If you can reassemble... sounds like a pain, but problem solved.

    Ehh... unless you don't leave the house without full body armour, a rifle and a pistol, I'm guessing you do weigh the odds like the rest of us.
