    Transport of hi-cap mags interstate

    Quick question:

    If I were to fly into a California airport transporting a handgun and "hi capacity" mags (13, 15 rounds, etc...), would it be legal to TRANSPORT ONLY (not carry or engage) the magazines along the highway to Nevada? In a locked container?

    What is the overlap (if any) of Cali laws against importing hi-cap mags vs. Federal peaceable journey laws?

    Thanks, and can you please cite your answers if possible?
    My location says I am from Sierra Vista, AZ which is where I live now but I actually lived in MO for 26 years! So please stop telling me I don't know what I'm talking about when I post in the Missouri forum!

    Only if YOU processed them inside CA prior to the high cap ban.

    The importing provision leaves no wiggle room. Fly in with high caps that did not originate here....is importing, period.

    Be safe and smart.
    It only takes 2 seconds to slide the mag floor plate off and pull the spring and follower out. It then magically becomes a rebuild kit therefore 100% legal.

    Federal Exemption:

    Note that the NRA states that the federal exemption can be used after you are arrested.

    I don't know how the law relates to high-cap mags.
