    I can't think of any sites that list each state. My Google-Fu isn't that strong today. I'd guess that you'd have to search each state individually or maybe look at Cheaper-than-Dirt or Sportsman Warehouse.They might have a list of all the evil stuff banned in each state.

    Check California real close.

    It is illegal to import magazines of over 10 round capacity into California.

    If you go to Aimsurplus.com and click on magazines it lists what can't be bought in certian states.

    Definitely - possession of standard capacity mags is NOT a crime in California. And the rest of the law is next to unenforceable.

    It has teeth if you bring a gun into California on a visit. It won't be hard to "prove" you brought those standard-cap mags with you, being that it's impossible to buy them in-state, and all. :quirky

    Nothing definitive to offer, but for the standard capacity mags, some websites let you check to see if they can be shipped to your state like http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/MAG240-36.html for example.

    And yes, for the Glock 17 that is a standard capacity mag. The 10-rounders some people are forced to buy are reduced capacity.

    That's exactly right. They banned normal capacity mags in 2000, but if you owned them before 2000, you could keep them. Re-build kits are big in CA. It's legal to buy, import, and sell re-build kits for any size mag and the kits contain everything you need to build a complete mag.

    As you probavly already know, it's not just the number of rounds in your firearm, but the capacity as well. In some states, such as California, it is illegal to have a magazine that will hold more than 10 rounds. A 12 round magazine loaded with only 10 rounds is still illegal.

    I know not of these high-capacity magazines you speak of.

    I know many states allow regular or full capacity magazines, and many are restricted to low-cap mags, but I know of no hi-caps.
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    What I was asking was about states that have restrictions on even stock mags. most of mine are 15 to 18 rounds so I don't want to go in a state carrying and get in trouble

    Funny thing happened. After my boat sank with all of my guns, my bug out trailer opened up while I was driving. When I got to my camp, I discovered all of my magazines had fallen out of the open door and were lost.
