    CA-approved Glocks vs "regular" Glocks...

    Is there any difference between a Glock 19 sold in, say Mississippi, and one sold in CA? Other than the CA gun coming with 10 round mags I mean? Basically, if I have 15 round mags already, could I buy a CA-approved Glock 19 and use my 15 round mags with it? Presuming it is legal for me to have those 15 round mags to begin with, which it is here in MS.

    Just curious...

    There is no difference other than the ten-round magazines that are included with those sold in California (and a fw other states).

    Would that prevent me from using larger magazines?

    No large magazines, unless something has changed since I last read CA law. There is a perma ban on all magazines over 10 rounds.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    Go to California Dept. of Justice website...

    If you go to the CA Dept. of Justice website and look under firearm frequently asked questions:

    CA DOJ website FAQ

    you will see this information regarding high capacity magazines in CA:

    If I have a large-capacity magazine, do I need to get rid of it?
    No. Continued possession of large-capacity magazines (able to accept more than 10 rounds) that you owned in California before January 1, 2000, is not prohibited. However as of January 1, 2000, it is illegal to buy, manufacture, import, keep for sale, expose for sale, give or lend any large-capacity magazine in California except by law enforcement agencies, California peace officers, or licensed dealers.

    (PC Section 12020 (b)(19-29))
    Note especially that "possession" of said magazines is not listed in the phrase "illegal to buy, manufacture, import, keep for sale, expose for sale, give or lend".

    I wouldn't buy it unless it was a good deal because you get stuck with 2 10 round mags. The magazine safety won't stop you from using high cap mags (if it has one, I don't think so), but it is another piece that could potentially break on you.

    Okay they say you can possess a high cap if you had it before Jan 1 2000,only problem is #1 proving that,and #2 there was a ban n civilians buying high caps that weren't already in circulation from 1994 to 2004 if i remember right.So if you live in California and you get caught with a high cap you gotta prove you possessed it before Jan 1 2000

    If you are accused of a crime, it is the responsibility of the prosecutor to prove that you are guilty. The defendant does not have to prove anything, and can remain silent. Once again, possession of the magazine is not illegal in CA. What is illegal is importation, manufacture, buying, selling or loaning it.

    Sorry, but this was another good reason for not staying in CA even though I was offered a job a few years ago, besides cost of living, I kind of like the idea of CCW and carrying a G19 with a 15 round magazine.

    That may sound nice, but the reality if you are found to have a Hi-cap magazine will be: You get arrested. You get finger printed and photographed. You get to post bond. You get to have an attorney and your day in court. Then you get to have your case heard by a jury of fellow Californians who probably already think that anyone with a Hi-capacity handgun magazine is a gun nut looking for people to kill.

    Good luck with proving your innocent.

    At least in CA you can buy a NEW Glock. We cannot. Must be pre 10/98, which is mostly Gen2.
    But, we can buy pre-ban mags. (yes we have a permanent ban), and yes, we can still buy evil black rifles, but only with a clean muzzle or brake.
