    I highly recommend reading CA PC 12020:
    12020. (a) Any person in this state who does any of the following
    is punishable by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year
    or in the state prison:

    (2) Commencing January 1, 2000, manufactures or causes to be
    manufactured, imports into the state, keeps for sale, or offers or
    exposes for sale, or who gives, or lends, any large-capacity
    (c) (25) As used in this section, "large-capacity magazine" means any
    ammunition feeding device with the capacity to accept more than 10
    rounds, but shall not be construed to include any of the following:
    (A) A feeding device that has been permanently altered so that it
    cannot accommodate more than 10 rounds.
    (B) A .22 caliber tube ammunition feeding device.
    (C) A tubular magazine that is contained in a lever-action
    Also, yes you may open carry the firearm, so long as it is unloaded (and other factors apply). Read the information at pertaining to such.

    I am sad to say, you moved from AZ to a place with less recognition of your natural rights... Some of us are planning to get out.
    Gun control isn't about guns -- it is about control.

    Bringing magazines with a capacity of over 10 rounds into California is illegal unless those magazines existed in California prior to Jan. 1, 2000. If you already have them in California, do not say you do. You can either send them back to Arizona to a good friend, or you can lock them in a safe somewhere for three years (is it three years?) for the statute of limitations to pass by.

    Since I'm sure you had your magazines in California prior to 2000, you can absolutely open carry with your normal capacity magazines. Fill those boys up to the limit and carry them proudly.

    Also, welcome to the forum and Cali.

    Why Why Why!?!


    You DID NOT BRING A 17 ROUND MAG INTO CA. Unless you possessed it in CA BEFORE Jan 1 2000.

    If you did not have it in CA before then you may keep it disassembled until you leave. Get some ten rounders until move back to freedom.

    Look here first.

    Firearms Information for New California Residents


    Any person who moves into California and who brings any pistol, revolver, or other firearm capable of being concealed upon the person is considered to be a "Personal Handgun Importer" and is required to do one of the following within 60 days:

    Complete and submit a NEW RESIDENT HANDGUN OWNERSHIP REPORT form along with $19.00 to the Department of Justice. A separate report form and $19.00 fee is required for each handgun reported. NEW RESIDENT HANDGUN OWNERSHIP REPORT forms can be obtained from California Department of Motor Vehicles' offices, licensed firearms dealers, local police and sheriff's departments, the California Department of Justice Bureau of Firearms at (916) 263-4887, and from the Online Forms Page at this site.
    Sell or transfer the handgun(s) to a California licensed firearms dealer or to another individual using a California licensed firearms dealer to conduct the transaction.

    Sell or transfer the handgun(s) to a California police or sheriff's department. Persons choosing this option should contact the law enforcement agency for instructions prior to transporting the handgun(s) to the agency.
    Any person transporting handguns in California is required under California law to transport those handguns unloaded and in a locked container other than the glove compartment or utility compartment of a vehicle.


    California law does not require persons moving into California report rifles or shotguns. One important thing to be aware of though is that certain rifles and shotguns may be defined as assault weapons in California and are prohibited from entering this state under most normal circumstances. Additionally, machine guns and ammunition feeding devices with the capacity to accept greater that 10 rounds may not be transported into California.

    Please be aware that failure to comply with these mandated handgun requirements could result in criminal prosecution (Penal Code Section 12072(g)).

    Hope springs eternal

    Kevin: I believe there is hope for us here in California.
    Keep reading the various forums, become part of our
    community and, by all means, patronize StarBucks.
    Things are happening like never before. The pace of
    change is increasing.
    Keep in step and hang in there friend.

    It's not against the law to import magazine parts or so-called "rebuild kits" of high-capacity magazines as long as one does not do so with the intention of re-assembling those magazine parts within the state, thus "manufacturing" a high-capacity magazine. Many people do so in order to repair lawfully owned magazines, or to modify them in order to create magazines permanently blocked to 10 rounds, or for lawful use outside of the state of California.
