California Magazine Ban – Stay Order on Federal Court Reversal

Here is an update to my blog aricle posted on Wednesday, April 3rd: The window of opportunity for Californians will be shorter than I thought! Comrade Becarra weaseled a “Stay” order. This means that Californians only have just until 5 PM Friday April 5th 2019 to place orders, to make payments, or to do face-to-face deals on 11+ round magazines.

By coincidence, I arrived in Northern California yesterday afternoon (April 4) with more than 200 assorted “standard capacity” magazines. I will be in Northern California until about April 18th.

Here is the court order. Note that the key parts on implementation are in are the last two paragraphs.

I brought the following mostly original factory and military contract magazines. 95% of them are brand new:

  • AR-15 — More than 100 magazines, including various 30 and 40 round PMAGs, mil-spec black Teflon coated alloy 30 rounders, four PMAG D60 drums, and just one Beta CMAG.
  • HK91/G3 (alloy and steel) –Including some scarce sealed arsenal 10-pack boxes.
  • AR-10 — just a few 20 rounders, and just one of the newly-released MagPul D50 .308 50-round drums.
  • Steyr AUG (30 & 42 rd.–a mix of green and black floorplates)
  • Mini-14 30rd. (brand new, Ruger factory-made in clear clam shell packages)
  • Glock 17/19: 15 rd., 17 rd., and lots of factory 33-round, plus some clear ATS brand 31-round.
  • Glock 21 (13 round, .45 ACP)
  • Saiga-12 magazines made by AGP. (Gen. 2 — the really good ones!)
  • Beretta M92 (15-round Beretta factory and a few Airtronic and Checkmate USGI contract magazines, slightly used.)
  • SIG P228 9mm 13-round. Just three available.
  • M14/M1A: I brought six of the scarce X-Products .308 drum magazines.

Everything will be “first come, first served.” 🙂

I will be staying in the inland East Bay area.

Special Note to blog readers living in Northern California: If you think that you can get together with me before April 18th to take delivery, then please BEFORE 5M Pacific Time of April 5th, PayPal me just $1 (One Dollar) with NO MEMO and no gun-related words, to:  (That is NOT a .com address!)  That way, legally (with the PayPal paper trail), we can document that you became the owner of a portion of those magazines BEFORE 5M Pacific Time of April 5th. We can settle up on the difference (the “handling fees”) when we actually meet face to face sometime between now and the 18th, for you to take delivery of the magazines that you will have purchased BEFORE 5M Pacific Time of April 5th.

Remember: Both the courts and California law enforcement are bound by the Black Letter Law wording of today’s Stay order. They wrote themselves into a box (allowing Californians to make magazine purchase transactions BEFORE 5M Pacific Time of April 5th, 2019) so we ought to take full advantage of it!

I saddens me that Californians had to suffer for 19 years under this horrible law, and then were given just SIX DAYS to stock up. DON’T MISS OUT on this opportunity.

Please e-mail me to make arrangements to get together. Again, I can only do so for individual California residents who PayPal me $1 BEFORE 5M Pacific Time of April 5th. (Again, my PayPal address : Again, use NO MEMO and no gun-related words in the transaction.
