Chicago and all of Cook County it is a 10 round limit. Rest of the State of Illinois no limits. For deer hunting a 3 round limit (shotgun only), Pistol 357 or bigger for Muzzle loader single shot 45 caliber or larger.

As of 10/1/13, the mag limit in MD is 10. That is on what you can purchase after that date as a stand alone mag or with a new gun. It is legal to buy whatever you want in neighboring states or elsewhere and own and use them in MD.

So, contrary to popular belief, and as liberal as this state is, I can legally shoot my AK47 with my 75 rnd drum if I want to. Because both were purchased before that date. And I bought my AR10 after that date, so it came with 10 rnd mags. But I have since purchased 20 rnd mags in PA and can legally use them.

Goes to show how ineffective the new laws really are..........

California- 10 rounds maximum capacity

Hawaii- 10 rounds maximum capacity for pistol magazines only

Maryland- 20 rounds maximum capacity

Massachusetts- 10 rounds maximum capacity (unless customer supplies a copy of a license to possess high capacity magazines)

New Jersey- 15 rounds maximum capacity

New York- 10 rounds maximum capacity

City of Washington,D.C.- 10 rounds maximum capacity

City of Chicago, Illinois- 12 rounds maximum capacity

City of Aurora, Illinois- 15 rounds maximum capacity

City and County of Denver, Colorado- 21 rounds maximum capacity


Like guns, love people!!
Thanks for the research ... tagging this for reference.

We are lucky in Commiefornia that we can have 10 rounders.

I have ten 10 rounders for 100 total rounds which I keep in a cloth bandoleer for M-1 Garand clips -- which have never gone out of style and are still manufactured to this day. I guess the M-1 Garand bandoleers are used in M-1 Garand shooting competitions.

Plus the mag in the Ruger Mini makes 110. Not a bad combat load.

I could carry another bandoleer easily if I wanted to, for 210 total.

But I think 110 should be enough for most SHTF-Apocalypse scenarios here.

School and theatre shootings with AK's and AR's do not seem to be a noticeable trend in Florida, unlike the Yankee states.

Florida is lucky in that respect.

Even with 10 round mags, you are always limited only by the carrying weight.

100 rounds is still easy -- that has always been the measure of a cloth 5.56x45 bandoleer of stripper clips.

200 rounds is pushing it.

300 rounds is probably like dragging an anchor with you though.

So mag size has no impact on carrying load.
