Default Loaning Hi caps legality

I could have sworn that I read at some point that someone in legal possession of a hi capacity magazine may loan them to anyone legal to own/posses firearms in CA. Looking back into it I only see something that says they may be loaned for the purpose of filming movies. Reason I ask is I am wondering if I can barrow a friends M&P9 mags at the range(hes LE), or if that would cause me a serious headache?

I believe it would be acceptable if he were at the range with you. If you are out of his presence then it would be a violation.

My wife acquired - smartly, but hell, I did know what I was doing in marrying her - a bunch of 30 rounders for her AR prior to 2000. I only use them when we both go to the range.

Later today I'm going to the range to sight in my AR's new setup by myself. I'm only taking 10-rounders with me. No point in getting in any trouble.

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
