I was doing some work in Fairview, so I decided to drop in to the Bergen Sportshop in Ridgefield. I asked the gentleman behind the counter with the snubby on his hip and the nasty shiner on his eye if he had any AR mags. He pointed to a case with 20 and 30rd mags blocked to hold 15rds. The 20rd mags where $20 and the 30rd $30. I asked to purchase a 30rd mag and he said he needed my FID and drivers license. I asked why, and he said the State police want to keep track of ALL hi capacity mags. He had a list with a bunch of names on it! No thanks![down]

Interesting story. About a year ago my brother was in Sarco over in Stirling. Two NJSP officers came in and asked to see his blocked magazines and then tried to tell him that they were "NO LONGER LEGAL" to sell in NJ.

The owner told the 2 troopers that they were wrong, and that the law was clear. In fact, there had been a court case to establish the law.

The troopers answer was chilling: "The Attorney General's interpretation of the court ruling says they're illegal." (In other words, come to court and prove you're right....AGAIN!!!)

HUH???????? [wallmad][wallmad]

It is so true.. When I worked at a sport shop the trooper that did the inspection for the FFL was inspecting the muzzle loader bullets and said we had to log in all Muzzy projectiles that were sabot or hollow points. That wouild require all customers to log in a book FID or drivers license # with name and address like they were buying handgun ammo..

Just curious, why would the difference in price if they could only hold 15 anyway? Who would pay extra for the 30?
If there wasnt a high cap restriction you would have to pay more for a 30 round than 20. Why would someone in NJ pay more? Probably for the way it looks. I wouldnt, my bush 10 rounders were modified to hold 15 I dont have to worry about permanent blocks and all this other stuff which is nice. You never know when your going to run into an LEO who doesnt know the law (no offense to any LEO on here but it happens frequently)

i have heard some strange things about certain taxes there,but their gun laws are great.
At the end of the day you still pay more to live like a subject in NJ than you do to live like a citizen of Va.
