What's up with some idiots that sell handguns online? Some of them have disclaimer urging Kalifornians to refrain from bidding just because the handgun comes with 15rd magazine. WTF, don't ship the mag, handguns (at least the CA DOJ approved ones) are still allowed here you know.

I believe many of those sellers will actually work with you if you write and explain it to them. Especially if you tell them to just keep the hi-cap mags.
What gets me is the dealers making a point not sell to CA period. There's even one SoCal dealer on Gunbroker proudly proclaiming that he doesn't sell any of his guns in the state of California.

I see it this way - the seller, if he is trying to get rid of a gun he doesn't use or want anymore, may want to get rid of everything related to that gun all at once. Why bother having odds and ends left over long after you've gotten rid of the item that uses them? He may prefer to just sell the item to a place that can accept all of the accessories without any restrictions. It would then follow that he would have to also state that he wasn't going to sell to MA or other states that have mag capacity restrictions.

On the other hand, you as a bidder are bidding the same price as anyone else would pay who would be expecting to receive the hi cap mags, so in a sense, you are overpaying for the item (because you'd get it without the hi-caps) and the seller gets to go back online and resell the hicaps, presumably also at some sort of profit or at least break-even.

So, I see it two ways, I guess it just boils down to the individual.
