    Bill,
    Your mags are illegal, no way around it no matter how YOU interpret.

    That was my take on that case as well - that guy was clearly set up. That guy could have been the biggest scumbag on earth and the way they did that to him is a travesty of justice.

    And do me a favor. If this is wrong (it may be, I don't work for glock) then post WHY it is or how you know it please. To just send me NEG rep and state "wrong info" to me doesn't help anyone including myself. The link I posted is the thread on AR15.com where they talk about this exact issue. The guy who posted this photo talks about how if the stamp 9mm is lower then it's pre ban, because Glock had to MOVE the 9mm UP to fit the LE/GOV on the mag. Again, if this is wrong then please state why instead of useless NEG rep.

    I don't play the Neg Rep game, but can tell you that it is not that simple. If this thread was posted where it belonged, in the MA Gun Law sub-forum, perhaps someone might have found the very lengthy sticky there on this exact subject.

    I don't have time to go into all the details, but you should read Patrick Sweeney's book on Glocks for details (I posted the PDF of the page not long ago). And no less than Fred, Glock-USA's lead customer support technician and Carlos G., Glock-USA's Chief Counsel will disagree with this simplistic approach that the experts on ARfcom (and everywhere else) espouse. I personally talked with both on this subject a few years ago.

    I'm not disagreeing that this isn't he conventional wisdom or the official EOPSS interpretation, but I don't agree that it's a correct interpretation of the law since it assumes language not in the law. The statutory text says nothing about the guns being received by a retiree--only that a retiree be ELIGIBLE to receive said guns and hi caps.

    Do we know if the Federal ban had a similar provision and, if so, how that provision was interpreted by BATFE?

    +1 for actually posting the correct information. funny, primus, i believe i negged you (aww aww aww) and said that glock does not even play this game you're playing and will not ID mags now that the 1994 ban has expired. it's bullshit, so stop posting it. i told you i'll continue to neg you every time you post this crap or any of the other wildly inaccurate shit that comes out of your mouth--and i fully intend to continue doing so not because i enjoy trolling you, but because you could get someone in legal trouble, or you could simply confuse a new member looking for actual info and i want people do know the trash you post is just that.

    Obie, I agree with you. I was just reporting what the pundits are claiming to be the case. They want to jam up cops as well as mere mortals . . . it's their "equal opportunity" (for prosecution) agenda at work! [sad]

    A police officer is being charged? Really.... I'm all for closing the police loophole - hell the magazine ban itself is freaking stupid and should go away. But to charge someone when there is no connection to a larger crime or issue is just dumb. Especially so when that person is in law enforcement....

    I thought law enforcement was exempt? (police loophole)... Is the person retired or something?

    It's wrong because everything I've seen about properly dating glock mags is based off of hearsay.

    That is the problem with this entire issue, most of the data is absolute horseshit, unless its an explicit DATE STAMP or a LEO marketing, it's not incontrovertible. Ambi cuts generally are reliable, but what if someone made their own cuts? (doubful, but not impossible. )

    This whole topic sucks.

    NSFW:



    We also have a dumpster pile in MA gun laws for this crap, too... why this is being posted here and not there?
