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.

I may be old but I'm not entirely a fool. 👴
