Default Gun law question. Alabama.

Greetings,

I have been looking around but I cannot find what the laws are in Alabama regarding magazine capacity. Any help would be very appreciated.

Ummm- could you be a bit more specific? Magazine capacity for WHAT?

ANd- you will find that most off the free states do not have limits on mag capacity other than some hunting weapons.

We believe in playing fair with the ducks, but not with the guy climbing in the window of your house.

Handgunlaw.us could find no restrictions in Alabama Law concerning Chemical Sprays, Stun Guns
Or Higher Capacity Magazine Bans.

Found at http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/alabama.pdf

Sorry- typo. Did not mean to type OFF the free states. Should have been OF the free states. Yes, meant as a verbal slam to some of the Northern Nanny States outlook on life, however, when you can't freaking spell OR type, it loses much of its panache! And spellcheck does not catch properly spelled wrong words.

However, to get back to your original question, for a handgun, no, I know of no restrictions on magazine capacity, etc in Alabama. To all the folks from CA and NY- Are you guys so shifty that your states don't trust you with a large magazine?

AL is not a restrictive state. I carry a 1911 45acp there and it is legal. Mine uses 9 round mags and they are legal even in CA.
