Default CA 10 round magazine is a joke

I don't understand why CA is so strict about any magazine with more than 10 rounds. Anyone can drive to Nevada, Oregon or Arizona and just buy some large capacity magazines and bring them back into CA. I know it's illegal to do that but do you think the bad guys care about what's legal or not?

I went to Oregon and visited Cabelas and held a large capacity mag that I seriously thought about buying but at the end, I didn't want to get busted for a stupid magazine. CA needs to amend this law but I know that's never going to happen. Just venting because I really wanted that magazine. Call me chicken but the risk was definitely not worth the reward.

Since the importing could be charged as a felony, I agree

Not funny and not legal.

The PC was rewritten and RECEIVING is now a listed violation.

Finding seems to be different than receiving, no? Wouldn't receiving imply that it was given, sold, or stolen?

Can a diver be charged for recovering "trash" from a boating accident?

Some places, out of state will not sell to you if they suspect you're from California.

If you missed out on the rebuild kit phase, you are not going to be able to buy,inherit,find, GET high cap magazines unless you are exempt -- LEO being first to come to mind.

Better that you contribute to NRA, CGF. Just my opinion.

For some reason magazine threads bring out the poorly considered responses.

We Do Not Do That at Calguns.
