I am placing an order with Midway USA and just found out that they won't ship mags to Ohio. I called to find out about this, and was told that they won't ship them to Ohio, period. I have always received excellent service from Midway, but this is pretty disappointing, as they had the best prices on MecGar Browning and Beretta mags.

That is really weird. I have ordered many from them and just received 6 20-rnd M1A mags from them a couple weeks ago, after the ban expired (new 20 rnd mags).

?????

I would try again....

I thought it was illegal to use them, not possess them?

And isn't it 31 rounds?

Just when I was starting to like Ohio.... I need to move back to Idaho..

30 rounds in the mag +1 in the chamber is what the law eludes to...

So are they illegal to own, or illegal to use?

The are illegal to insert into the firearm, therefore use. Owning them seems to be fine. ALot of mags that hold more than 30 rounds are owned in ohio. I've got a few 90 rounders that I've never even loaded. They get to rest in their boxes alot.

I also noted that cabelas has a warning for Ohio to check local laws before ordering ammo,that was never there before,I wonder what has changed.

Well, if they're only illegal to use, then Midway USA is going on my anti-gun manufacturer/dealer list.

Something doesn't sound right. I second the suggestion to call them back.

My understanding is that you can't legally use a weapon that hold over 31 rounds. That means 30 round mags plus the one in the chamber is perfectly legal.

"A little extreme don't you think?"

No. They won't sell items to me that are perfectly legal to own. The only reason not to would be because you don't want people to have them.

They = no better than Brady, to me.

The point is that they ARE legal and they would NOT ship them. I agree with this fellow and would be pissed too. Good thing there's plenty of other places out there to buy decent mags.

THe explanation that they gave me when I called was this:

Their computer system is not currently set up to distinguish between parts of Ohio that have mag capacity limits ( like Cincy) and the rest of the state. To remedy this, they have put a halt on sales of mags to Ohio.

I explained that there were no laws prohibiing me from owning these mags in my ares,but was told that for now,they could not ship them. Too bad, I had a really good discount that expired on Monday. Still, I did manage to spend several hundred dollars there.

Discount and all I DON'T think I would have spent a dime with them

I have to agree. That's total bullshit. I'll be sure to write them a letter complaining about their policy. Without a state level prohibition on hicap mags, it is up to the consumer to ensure they adhere to local law, not the vendors. Hell, even though my mailing address is typically Cincinnati, OH I don't live within the city limits and therefore the municipal ban does not apply to me either.

I'll be writing them a letter regarding this policy.
