Did the magazine ban get lifted for enough folks to grab a few magazines?
Not yet...still working way through appeals process.
We had freedom week and over 1M "large capacity" magazines flowed into the state. The case has yet to be voted on to be heard en-banc. Currently, LCM's are considered to be a "protected arm" and are subject to strict scrutiny. Unfortunately because the State requested a rehearing, this case isn't considered "final" so no "final" orders can be entered. If "we" win, it won't be appealed to SCOTUS as "we" would have won the case. If the State is smart about it, they won't appeal this either. If "we" lose, it would be appealed to SCOTUS and there's a good chance "we" would win at that level. California just doesn't have a non-arbitrary answer to how many rounds is considered adequate for self-defense, but did concede that a 1 round magazine is insufficient and an unconstitutional burden upon the 2A.

Final votes to take this case en-banc are due in a few more days. Until such time as the Court determines the answer, we won't know if it's going en-banc or not.

My answer was the Cliff Notes version...but this is a more complete answer.

True, but I'm still not a huge fan of AR or even AK platforms. No matter what you do, there will still be some play in the stock, especially on adjustable stocks. There's just something about wood and steel with the Garand rotary bolt that just feels right.

Seriously considering putting my M1 carbine into my survival kit. It will do everything I need it to do and carrying 300 rounds of ammo is still pretty light.
Well it's official. The M1 carbine is now part of my survival kit/BOB. 300 rounds of ammo and even threw in the bayonet for good measure.

Besides, it goes well with my 1911 EDC. ;)

Yep...my 10mm 1911 is definitely a boomer. :p

Depending on your reply I was going to make a snarky remark about invading normandy but I don't think they had 10mm back then so you have thwarted my plans.

Looking for folks who have experience with DDm4 V7/11 &or PRO version :). any and all opinions are welcome. Aside from DD being top tier and reliable, any other inputs to either of those? Potentially have a good deal lined up (shocking in this day and age :) )
*prefer v7, cuz everybody knows M-Lok>Keymod*
Thanks folks :cool:

No experience with either of those models specifically, but I do have a DDM4 PDW, and I can tell you the thing is top notch in every way. It is easily the nicest rifle AR-format pistol that I own :cool:. And I'm not even a big AR guy.

I think you'll be hard pressed to find anyone say anything about Daniel Defense that isn't positive, so unless you are paying way more than MSRP or the thing is pre-owned and has been badly abused, it's hard to go wrong with them.

I'd say if you've come across what you feel is a good deal on one, it's a no-brainer. Go for it👍.

much obliged sir. I was thinking along the same lines. Seems high quality to me, it'll prolly make me debate a socom block II build
Or one that’s in stock.

GunBroker has dozens of DD and BCM rifles for sale. Looks like most are going for above MSRP, but they are available at least. 👍

I should clarify. I’m waiting for upper receivers.
