    Question about New MD Mag Laws

    Good morning y'all!

    I am flying from Texas to Maryland tomorrow. My nephew just bought a Bushy M4 and, like all M4's, it came with a sub standard mag. I want to take with me 2-3 30 round PMag's with me and give them to him as a present. They're still sealed in plastic and I was going to check my bag.

    I know the ban goes into effect on October 1 so I want to get these to him so it's grandfathered. Is there any other reg or law I need to worry about? Would it be smarter to mail them to him via FedEx or similar?

    Should be no problem in checked bags.

    If I remember the wording of the law correctly you should bring them in with you in your checked baggage.

    Sending them would actually be illegal, I think. Parts of Maryland's laws can get very confusing, I'm sure you can't mail order mags over the limit (old or new 10/1 laws), but you can buy them and carry them in. That's why gun shop owners in the surrounding States LOVE Maryland.

    The law as it stand right now is that you cannot "buy, sell, transfer, or receive" magazines that hold more than 20. As of October, the limit is 10 with the same phrasing. Note that it does not ban possession, just transfer. To be legal about it, you and your nephew should visit a neighboring, non-New Jersey state for lunch or something, and you can give him the mags there.
