    LEO mag cap?

    After reading another port the thought came to mind. Do LEOs off duty have to abide the local mag caps? To include visiting out of state LEOs. For example there is no such limit in NH but if an off duty LEO visits NY do they have to have 10 or fewer rounds?

    Yes.

    A LEO's exemption from local statutes only apply within his jurisdiction. A LEO outside his jurisdiction is just like everyone else.

    Now commence with the hair splitting of special situations and obscure rules.

    Spot on...in Texas active and retired officers carry the same privileges (we can carry anywhere)...leave the state, we only have the status of a CHL for 49 other states.

    I had to go into a courthouse in Davis County (Layton) Utah in September 2011 as my son and his wife getting married before he went to Korea (formal wedding when he returned). Showed my LEO identification and the deputies asked that I leave it in the car. It was already in the car. Their courthouse, their rules.

    Yeah, the federal firearms portion of the license merely gives retired officers a 49 state CHL...nothing more.
