I know that NY has a mag ban but does that mean I can't get any from out of state through mail order. I see some at gun shows so I guess they are grandfathered.

New York State's AW/mag ban is the same as the federal AW/mag ban. If you can own the magazines you're referring to at the federal level, you can own them in New York State (not necessarily NYC though). So, if the mags were manufactured prior to Septmeber 1994, you can buy as many as you want and possess them in NYS.

Does that mean I can buy them through the mail? I see in some adds that they don't ship hi cap mags to NJ(over 15 rounds) Maryland over 20(if I am correct and Mane( I think 10 rounds) or cali. But I never see NY. Is there a loophole for NY?

I believe they cannot ship to NYC, that is the five boro's(Queens,Brooklyn,Staten Island and Manhattan). Long Island and upstate you can ship.

I have been researching this for awhile. Talked to NYSP Pistol Permits and Records Division, and Sen McGee's office. Let me put some NYS fears to rest. Yes - the NYS AW and mag ban is an exact mirror image of the Federal laws. You can own any preban guns or mags. Why did they bother spending the taxpayer's money on enacting a law that was already in place? The answer is simple. The NYS AW ban was a compromise. McGee wanted an entire ban. The rest of NY did not. McGee settled for a mirror image law so that, if the feds ever repeal THEIR AW ban, NY would still have their's in place. If those mags aren't labelled "LEO", stock up. If McGee's office eventually gets it's way, you won't be able to buy a Daisy Repeater without an act of Congress. Hope that helps.
