Default Engraving freedom week dates on your SCM?

Do you think is a good idea? I have been considering the idea because there are time that I forget dates.

Man the paranoia here is funny. If you're scared about having them, get rid of them and use your 10 rounders.

Oh I forgot, mags are dated for all the nannies out there. My okay mags have 2019 printed on them!

Thanks for your replies. I admit that I was over thinking the whole thing. Thanks again for giving me a good smack on the head.

If you bought Pmags, manufacturing date is on the side of the mag

Don't feel bad OP. You are not alone. I used an oil based Sharpie to put freedom week purchase dates on my new mags. I number them anyway in the same manner so why not do this as well?

While I was at it I made sure I had appropriate dated copies of my dated purchase receipts on file as well. Why? Because we live in the State of California and to do otherwise:

It would seem to me that it does not matter what the manufactuer's date on the side of some mags might be. They could be 2019, or old stock from any previous year but that doesn't make them "freedom" mags. It would further seem that if you are relying on a date then it should be in the specific date range of 03/29/2019 to 04/05/2019 for it to be meaningful.

However, it you don't care or are of the "I don't need no stinkin' dates" position then don't sweat it 'cause what will be, will be

Besides the obvious paranoia, what exactly does stamping a date on a magazine solve? One could go to Nevada tomorrow, purchase a SCM, bring it home and stamp any date that they want on it. It proves nothing.

No paranoia just preparedness.

Let me take a different tack...how many comments did we see posted during the AW registration period about OPs who could not find their receipts or DROS documents for information that was newly being required?...while the odds currently are currently small for this, why not be prepared.

Additionally, we got into this mess because the State legislated after the fact to do away with all mags including grandfathered mags. Currently, we have months or years to wait before the current suit is resolved. Is it that far fetched that the State would try to double down and write other stupid laws or to harass law abiding citizens who can not validly prove that their mags are indeed legal.

Personally, I think I would be paranoid if I bought the new mags but was afraid to go ahead and use them.

Literally happened to me during the reg period for a few items and I ballparked the date and CFARS accepted the gun and it's currently on the RAW letter.

Nah, bro. No dates needed...because they're already on the way. They know.

Yeah but you could acquire some mags right now and engrave whatever date you want on them. That is meaningless and useless. It is not proof. I think you should lay on your back next to a newspaper and stack the mags around you and on top of you and have someone take a photo to prove you owned then during freedom week.

Why go to the effort to prove your innocence? The burden of proof is on the state. The AG and all his subordinates- and all local prosecutors would have to prove the magazine was an illegal acquisition.

A mag with a discernible manufacturing date after April 5th, 2019 would offer the only evidence against you.

Holding receipts?.... They only prove that someone bought *some* magazines- but not necessarily specific magazines. They don't even prove who bought them unless your name is on them. I wouldn't bother ... (unless you believed that they stay on the judgement applies to everyone who bought or sold magazines and not on just those magazines purchased between March 29 and April 5th 2019.)

I think it's both sad and funny that people are trying to rationalize their paranoia by comparing firearms which have serial numbers and can be traced and have numerous requirements that must be met to purchase and magazines that are mostly untraceable and that anyone can pretty much purchase anonymously.

But let the paranoia continue, some of us can use the laughs.

Freedom is heady stuff but it can be scary.
Go ahead and put dates on your mags
Remind yourself of the day you stuck your thumb in the eyes of Newsome, Becera and every other libtard who wants to diminish your rights.

If you are having trouble remembering dates, and want to avoid trouble, I'd go with things like anniversaries and birthdays. Forgetting those has a higher probability of causing trouble.

Yup. It proves nothing, and anyway it’s up to the state to prove that you did something illegal. But, if it makes them feel better, whatever, I guess.

There are guys that had legally acquired rebuild kits from back in the day, that manufactured a bunch of mags during the window. Some of those have manufactured dates of 2014 or something stamped by the factory. The state would have to prove they weren’t put together (manufactured) by the owner during the window. Can’t be done.


The only way a date could not work out for you is if it’s a date stamped by the factory, that is a post freedom week date. That would be bad.

LOL...it's nice to know there are so many licensed psychiatrists on the Forum!

Really guys, I think this is an issue where there is no one correct answer and the "different strokes for different folks" rule applies.

I'm sure there are some of you that just store your firearm in the corner or in a drawer... while others have a safe... while others have a safe and trigger locks... etc.

Which method is right? The one that works for that person.

In the vain of what I learned early in life:

three little pigs.jpg

I guess I'm just a house of bricks kinda guy, 'cause it works for me.

Lastly, just to tweak the psychiatrists in the crowd...


“Think what a better world it would be if we all-the whole world-had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankies for a nap. Or if all governments had as a basic policy to always put things back where they found them and to clean up their own mess.
And it is still true, no matter how old you are-when you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.”
― Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten


Enjoyin' the journey with you all... but not takin' it too seriously!

I put a date and inventory # on all of mine. It's not about proving innocence it's about taking care of what's mine.

No, not a good idea.
Your question is based on the premise that the DOJ is inspecting your mags. I wouldn't want to make it easy for them and point out the ones acquired during the Freedom Week. They have the burden of proof.

However, if you have evidence of legal acquisition, I would safeguard it just in case.

I agree with the post above that manufacture date after 4/5 is what will get you. Besides that, it's tough for them to prove that you got them illegally.

I believe under judge Benitez's ruling, he struck down PC 32310, then ordered the stay on 4/5 at 5 pm. PC 32310 bans SCM without any specific date of acquisition. When it's struck down, then all SCM acquired prior to 4/5 5 pm are legal. Then if you acquired them prior to that date & time, why would you worry too much? Or when you try to stamp the mags, did you get them after 4/5 5 pm?
