The range officer told me that unless I switched to a 10rd magazine, I would have to leave. His understanding of the issue was that while high cap magazines from the 1990s were legal to own, you are not allowed to use them in your rifle - unless the specific rifle was registered as an assualt weapon.
He seemed genuinely concerned that the local sheriff/officer/ranger would really cause some trouble over this issue.
In short, is it illegal to use a lawfully possesed high capacity magazine?
just curious but how do you have your Mini set up? Folding stock with pistol grip or original wood stock?
