Depends.

Do you live in California and when did you acquire them?

Welcome to the Calguns forum.

Large Capacity magazines (those holding more than 10 rounds) are totally legal to own and use in California.

The law states it is illegal to: import, manufacture, sell, offer for sale, or lend Large Capacity magazines. Possession and use is legal.

You do not need any paperwork, receipts, or proof of when you purchased them.

You had to live in CA and own them before 2000.

FUD! There is no law stating that one had to LIVE in Ca. before 2000! The magazines had to be in ca at some point before 2000 though.

High capacity magazines are legal to use in a featureless build. NEVER use them in a bullet-button'd semi-auto firearm in CA. That creates an assault weapon.

From the Calguns Wiki Page:

Q. Can I bring large-capacity magazines into the state with me if I did not possess them here prior to January 1, 2000?

A. No.

Q. Can I sell, trade or give large-capacity magazines to anyone in California?

A. It is illegal to transfer large-capacity magazines inside California, except to law enforcement.


Doesn't this basically say, in so many words, that you had to live in CA prior to 2000 WITH the mags? Since you can't import them into the state after 2000, and unless your LE no one can give them to you, the only way to legally posses would be if you've been living here since 2000 with them, or had once lived in CA prior to 2000, hid the mags somewhere, and retook possession upon returning to the state. Granted it doesn't say in the law that a requirement is that you had to LIVE in CA, but wouldn't there be no other way? Am I wrong?

No, you could've lived in Scotland all your life, but driven through CA with them in 1912.

Make sure you arent using those in a "Fixed Magazine" rifle, such as an AR with a bullet button...

I wonder if air-space would count? If someone had flown over Ca with a mag in their suitcase back in '99 or before, they would have a damn good arguement to legally bring it back to Ca.
