Ohio Laws? Magazine round limits?
 
Thinking about getting a Kel Tec Sub 2000 9mm Glock version.

I need to know if those 33 round Magazines are legal in Ohio.
If I get the gun I want a couple extra Mags for it or maybe just one of those 33 rd mags. I'm not up on my gun laws at all.

Sence I'm at it, Anyone have one for sale??
Thanks

Speaking state wide I don't think there are any laws about mag caps. But some cities have put some laws into effect. It seems Cincinnati was one that had a law about hi-cap mags. But it's been years since I lived up there so I don't know for sure. Your best bet would be to call your local LEO and ask them. This site might be able to answer your questions but you would be better off to talk to someone that knows the law first hand.

Thanks DrumJunkie, I'm a GuitarJunkie myself.
I'm gonna read over that site & try to catch up on some of the laws. I'm really in southeastern OH, not Cbus so it's probably find here in the hills. 33 rds is a big mag though & figured with my luck it would be maybe a 32 rd limit or something.

Ah another musician/noise maker...You'll find that a lot of things will fly out in the less inhabited areas. Man I"m glad I left the cityhttp://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/i...es/biggrin.gif The hills of south central Ky is where I call home these days. I find the flat part of the state pretty boring but it does make longer shots easier.

That sites info is usually real good. But I might still want to get some first hand info if I could if it was me.

I'm not sure I'm a musician but I sure do love making noise. :cool: ,oh and go easy dude or I'll turn it to 11 :)

Well I found this:
“Automatic firearm” means any firearm designed or specially adapted to fire a succession of cartridges with a single function of the trigger. “Automatic firearm” also means any semi-automatic firearm designed or specially adapted to fire more than thirty-one cartridges without reloading, other than a firearm chambering only .22 caliber short, long, or long-rifle cartridges.
Note: So any magazine that can hold more than 30 rounds other than a 22 caliber rim fire is considered an Automatic Weapon/Machine Gun,


So I'm assuming they are defining a "Automatic Weapon/Machine Gun" because it's illegal? I haven't really found where it says they are.

Oh well I think they have some in 15 or 16 rd so I'll probably end up just getting a couple of those. A 33rd mag may be a little awkward anyway.

Another stupid law that doesnt make any sence, makes about as much sence as saying a car with racing style tires is a race car. Mag capacity has nothin to do with full auto capabilities of any firearm

FWIW, I have a Sub2000 (9mm, G17 magwell). Great gun. I have a few of the 30rd+ mags and they're fun for taking to the woods. But the standard flush-fit 17rd mags are what I prefer. And mine stays loaded with 17+1 JHPs, as a compact and practical low-medium powered HD rifle.

Buy that $300 rifle...add rubber finger grip sleeve, a sling, and some G17 mags (avoid the Korean aftermarkets)...and you're good to go for a great little utility rifle. I've found the 115gr +p type rounds perform best. Most seem to have slightly slower burning powders, allowing them to make use of that 16in barrel.

Just came back and re-reading.Thanks for the info. I still don't have one of these yet but pretty much made up my mind that I will soon. I gotta wait till after Christmas atlest.
sweeper22, I've done some research and yea I think a sub2000 is a good buy for the cost and my needs.I work at night so my kids and wife are home alone. A short rifle like this in 9mm just makes more sence.I'll make sure they all get to learn how to shoot it.My wife has no experience with guns except I made her shoot a 20ga twice lol. It scared her to death and she hates guns but yet she has told me that yes she needs one.
