So, what will the FFL do when they receive a gun with mags greater than 10 rounds? Will they notify me that they can only give me the gun...just trying to figure out the options or protocol.

This is something you discuss with the FFL before you setup a transfer, every FFL handles this a different way.

Makes sense, thanks for the clarity. I’ll call my
Local ones and see what the protocol is. Problem is, some sites won’t even allow me to ship to MD because of the mag law.

Your best bet is to find a good shop fairly local to you and build a relationship. (that does not mean just using them for transfers because you got a better deal from someone else ) Once you become a regular customer, you might find that they work with you on prices to be competitive with buying online (and paying shipping and transfer fees), especially if you pay cash. Plus, that supports a local business.

They will have access to distributors that do ship to MD. You'll know their mag policy in advance. Maybe they'll pin for you, or maybe knock a few bucks off the price since they will be keeping the mags.

As with most things, local is better

This.

My shop will order me the same firearm at about the same final price.

Remember, you have to pay for the handgun. Pay for shipping. And pay the transfer fee.

But, I have built that relationship over several years.

I joke with them that I must be a good customer, as the first handgun I purchased, they wanted a 10% deposit to run the 77. A while later, I asked about ordering a certain pistol. They ordered it, got it in, processed the 77, and the first penny I paid was when I picked it up.

I think you can scratch Virginia off that list...

Hi BeoBill, can you elaborate on scratching VA off the list? Does that mean as a MD resident I cannot buy the magazines in VA?

Since the state legislature joined the executive in going deep into Bloomberg-financed gum-grabbing Dem/Blue mode, mag capacity limits there are just a matter of time.

Short time
