Thread: Magazine sizes when traveling?

  1. Magazine sizes when traveling?

    Do you guys downsize your magazine size when traveling through states that limit the size of a magazine?

    If I have larger magazines in my car that are empty, am I still non-compliant?

    I never travel with magazines larger that 10 rounds. If you have in your possession magazines of larger capacity in some states your are in violation of their state law. Know the laws of the states you travel in. Ignorance is no excuse. It is your responsibility.

    I also never travel or even use mag's with a capacity greater than 10. But that's because 45ACP is honking big to begin with.

    And the mere possession of an illegal mag or gun in Calif (for example) will get you arrested and tried.

    Possession is the crime, in their state, not loading.

    Damn I actually agree with this. As always the correct answer is "It depends", the answer will vary by state. I had a chance to have this discussion with Massad Ayoob once and his advice was you're better off to remain CLEARLY in compliance with the law than trust a grey area. If I have cause to travel in Colorado I leave my 17 round magazines at home and carry Colorado compliant 15 rounders

    Well, I guess if I ever decided to go to California or anywhere else that has a large capacity mag restriction, I won't ever take my full size Storm with me as a backup since it's stock mags are 14-rounders.

    I never got to meet Massad Ayoob in person but I feel like I know him because he was in several of the videos used in the several CFP classes I have taken.

    I find his view of public carry fascinating -- that it is a privilege not a right.

    He goes on to say that as a privilege it has requirements along with it, among which is to be trained and able to shoot straight and avoid collateral damage.

    His views have influenced my own.

    I follow state law. I typically try to avoid going to states with low-capacity magazine restrictions, but that is not always possible.

    Empty magazines make zero sense.

  9. I guess I'll ship my 15 round magazines to my destination since I have to pass through a 10 round state on the way...

    To hell with the 2nd Amendment, right?
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.
