I've had this 15 Rd. for about a decade now...can we still use them. So far I've been using it for home protection, but this weekend I might take it outdoor. I don't want to get in any trouble with park rangers.

Yes, you can use large-capacity magazines in your handguns.

See the Wiki FAQ on Magazines (http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/FAQ#Magazine_Questions)

Yes. It is totally legal to own/use "Standard" (10rd+) magazine.

Anyone have issues where rangemasters bugging you about hi caps? I have 2 hi caps for my XD that were legally purchased when I was in LE. I think I'll just play it safe and leave them at home for HD

It is not illegal to possess hi-cap mags and it is nobody's business how you acquired them. Use them all you want, wherever you want.

So when does the Law come into play. I always wondered why no just get someone to ship you hi cap mags from a state where they are legal?

thx Ted

Because importation is illegal.

I only use my 10 rounders for practice or range. But have fun either way.

I agree, but once it's here whose to say or how to vaidate origin? I am not being a wise guy, I am just very new to the hobby.

Because as a law abiding citizen with firearms, you should be following the law.

Because as a law abiding citizen with firearms, you should be following the law.

Which brings up the meta-discussion about CalGuns.

We're visible here - DOJ and other LE read the forums regularly. Anti-gun activists read the forums. General public reads. All in all, we have to be, like Caesar's wife, 'above suspicion'.

While there is broad agreement that the gun laws in CA are poorly crafted and we try to work to change them, until they ARE changed we must not advocate illegal acts.

This is especially important in the light of one thread of argument (not necessarily at CalGuns, but in the wider arena) where pro-gunners have been arguing that no new laws are needed but enforcement of existing laws will do everything such proposed new laws might do. That argument usually doesn't overtly include "and more than half the existing laws could go away with no loss of effectiveness", but it should!
