Probably comes from the legal dept. I wonder if whoever set the policy are former FBI?When I worked as the receiving manager at Sportsmans we destroyed stuff all the time. Thrown in the garbage after. It was policy as bums and similar fished the cans and would try to turn the stuff at another store.
Magazines, I don’t think they would get destroyed. An employee could certainly make them disappear!
Some questions are better left unasked probably because you might scare someone up the line into withholding mags or creating some new "cover our a$$ policy".Once the measure is in effect, say the magazine part goes into effect before the 30 days are up, are the customers even allowed to transfer them back to the store?
Well it is not a simple question so you can not expect simple answer. Your question needs more detail to be answered correctly.
I think what others have mentioned in one of the other threads is that if it's either a higher cap mag that's been permanently modified to accept only 10 rounds, or is a true 10 rounder and not capable of being "changed" or "converted" to accept more than that, then that's an acceptable 10 round mag. Full disclaimer: you're better off interpreting for yourself.
what store , bet they just throw them in the dumpster?I know someone waiting in the queue to get a gun that they bought at our local Bi-Mart. They just got a call telling them to come get their mags as Bi-Mart instructed staff to destroy all mags over 10 rounds! That's just one store though. Anyone else hear the same or know of another store doing the same? These are crazy times.
Yes you are allowed to own them and use them at licensed gun range as well as for hunting (where legal). I fully intend to keep packing my 22 w/>10 round magazine with me into the woods for grouse/squirrel. You just can't buy anymore >10 round magazines if you don't already own them.
Except there's still a difference of opinion on this forum, on when the "transfer" or "possession" occurs. Some people say it's when you "purchase", even if you don't possess them until after the ban. Others say it's when you physically have them in your possession. Personally I fall into the latter category, but good luck to everyone.If you bought the gun and mags, and are waiting for the BGC to clear, there shouldn't be any problem since the mags were your property before the ban went into effect. This is what I was talking about weeks ago when people were going crazy with taking pictures of mags, receipts, newspapers and bigfoot to show they had them before the effective date. They're creating their own hoops to jump through when it's completely unnecessary.
But if it is at home and I am at work, it is not in my possession or control...I was incorrect. From Section 7 of the measure:
(a) The large-capacity magazine was owned by the person before the effective date of this 2022 Act and maintained in the person's control or possession; or...
They really do hate us and consider us scum. This is just example of rubbing it in our faces.
