    I found this: http://www.cga.ct.gov/2013/rpt/2013-R-0039.htm

    but just wanted to make sure. I guess the state still has the 10-round limit? Can I buy a gun that comes with a mag that holds more than 10 while I'm living out of state, then move to CA and bring it in with me? Or does that just apply to standalone mags? Sorry if it's a dumb question, just want to confirm with anyone who knows for sure.

    Caspian, at the rate the California legislature is going, I think you better learn to use a sling, and it better not fire two rocks at a time!!!

    Seriously, I work for an FFL that was sympathetic to CA gun owners and has been shipping to them (legally) while doing all of the required paperwork. However, the law has just become so convoluted that we are considering stopping because of liability. You should call a local gun store IN CA to find out what the magazine rules are for this week. Also, California Department of Justice has a website with all current firearms restrictions as they currently stand.

    I truly wish you luck from a former Californian who got out.

    Thanks for the feedback Greg and the unique perspective that your position has given you. It's cool that you guys are keeping the people in CA in mind. Good idea to call a shop there. I'll try that and the CA DOJ site.

    I agree--liberalism is like tree rot and CA is one of its biggest victims. I may have to move back there due to family issues. But at least the weather is good.

    Cheers

    Pretty sure you can't bring mags in with higher than 10 round capacity either. You could buy several 10 round replacement mags then sell your standard capacity mags if you had to move. It sucks, for sure.

    Not sure what their policy is on moving there and bringing in a gun that is not on their approved list.

    (2) feeding devices permanently altered so that it cannot hold more than 10 rounds, or

    There you go, right in your own post. Rivet a piece of metal to the inside of the mag near the base that is large enough that no more than 10 rounds will fit in it.

    Hey guys, thanks for the responses. Hmm... maybe i can just pre-load all my magazines so there's space for only 10 rounds :p Man, what a stupid state California is. No offense. I'm from there so I guess I can say that.

    Any chance the cap is going to get overturned at some point in the future? I haven't been following the news there so I wouldn't know. We can only hope.

    Hope all is well you all. Cheers

    Not too likely. The voting majority seem doomed to continue stupidity, perpetually. Look at their senators, and Nancy Pelosi, and how long they have represented CA. Maybe if everyone of the stupid people dies from their mass stupidity I could consider moving back, but now that I've seen a lot of the rest of the country, I have no compelling desire to return. I feel sorry for the conservative minority who are stuck living with the consequences of the masses.

    The trend in gun laws for decades have trended more toward more regulation, without much sign of every going less restrictive. Once the national AWB was allowed to sunset, CA stood right up and said, "We'll keep the restrictions".

    If family lives near Nevada, Arizona, or Oregon, I'd look at settling there and visiting.
