Magazine Scenario


Post by Karate_Zarate » Mon Feb 01, 2016 6:48 pm

Hi everyone, hope you all are having a great day. Really looking forward to a simple answer for this question.

You have a CHL license, but a buddy of yours doesn't. You have enough magazines to sustain yourself, but what the heck you can never have enough fire power. Your buddy also has a handgun of the same caliber and the same make, but he does not have a CHL. He suggests to carry his own magazines for the same exact gun you have, since there is no room to carry the extra load on yourself.

Would your buddy get in trouble if he were questioned by an officer for carrying magazines without a CHL license, away from your or his property (vehicle, home, etc.)?

Remember, he does not have a weapon on his person, only a few magazines.

Magazines are not firearms, so not having a CHL alone would not cause any problems, IMO.

Tell your buddy to get off of his duff and get his license.

For the record, you could carry a BUG and hand it to him in an emergency and sec 9 would cover you, even if he does not have a CHL. The only caveat to that is if the guy is not a prohibited person, but even that could potentially be covered by PC sec 9, but I would not want to go to court for providing a firearm to a known prohibited person unless it was an active shooter situation.

From my understanding, he can carry all of the mags he wants. He should also carry a miniature clamp of some sort, a hammer, and a nail for emergencies. :biggrinjester:

. . . or as AJSully said, just tell him to get his CHL already.

As long as he is not prohibited, he is GTG.

Seriously though, the idea you are going to get into a protracted gun fight and need him to re-supply you is something even Hollywood can not imagine.
