Just got my new Bushmaster Shorty 16" Post-Ban and I can't wait to shoot thing! Dumb Question--Will I draw stares at the NRA HQ range tomorrow when I shoot 30 round mags in my Post-Ban weapon? That's not illegal, is it? Somehow I get the impression that only a 10 round mag is legal.

There is no federal law against 30rnd mags, but some states (New Jersey, Kalifornia) have laws about the posession and/or transfer of "high-capacity ammunition feeding devices". NRA HQ? Virginia? You're OK.

There is no law against possessing or using them in California. You can't import, manufacture, or transfer (sell, give away, lend, etc.) anything that holds over 10 rounds.

Mr. Pete, I believe you are good to go. If you get glares at the range, it's probably jealousy. Also, if you want to avoid laughter, make sure you don't sport that T-shirt you wear every time you go to the beach; you know, the one that says "I'D KILL FLIPPER FOR A TUNA-FISH SANDWICH!".
