Yeah you can carry a "hi-cap" (really standard cap) magazine loaded to 10 rounds in the gun provided you did register that mag with DESPP and it's in a gun purchased prior to the new laws... Any extra mags you carry not in the pistol have to be low cap.

Makes me think it wasn't registered prior to 2014, was loaded over 10 rounds or was in a pistol bought after the April 4th 2013 passage of the new law.

SB1160 Text on LCM's:

Restrictions on Declared LCMs

The bill limits where a person can possess an LCM that was declared. The person may possess it only:

1. at his or her residence;

2. at his or her place of business, or other property he or she owns, provided the LCM contains no more than 10 bullets;

3. on the premises of a target range of a public or private club or organization organized to practice target shooting;

4. while at a target range that holds a regulatory or business license for practicing target shooting;

5. while on the premises of a licensed shooting club;

6. while transporting the LCM between any of the above-mentioned places or to a gun dealer, provided the LCM contains no more than 10 bullets and is transported in compliance with the bill; or

7. under a valid gun permit, provided the LCM (a) is in a handgun lawfully possessed by the person before the bill's passage (April 4, 2013), (b) does not extend beyond the bottom of the pistol grip, and (c) contains no more than 10 bullets.

A violation of the provisions is a class C misdemeanor.

If it is only one it is just an infraction.

The guy should have lawyered up as soon as they asked him to bring the gun to the station.  Never answer an invite to a police station without a lawyer.

These fracking laws are written by morons who purposely confuse and twist wording.

I have a question. When I go to High Rock I have my XD9sc loaded with 10 in the 13 round mag that I registered and 1 in the chamber... all perfectly legal. BUT I also take my 16 round mag that is registered, it is empty and in the trunk inside my range bag. Is that 16 round mag in compliance with this stupid state or am I breaking the law cuz it is a "HCM" not in the mag well?

I was under the impression I was not breaking the law.
I love CT. I've lived here my entire life, it's all the socialists and libtards that I hate.

I don't think you are if it is transported in the same way you'd transport an "assault weapon" and it was only loaded and used at the range.

But WTFDIK.

 You can drive that dangerous magazine to and back from the range, mister and no stopping for other unrelated purposes. It cannot extend more than one inch from the bottom of the grip when in the gun. The first go at the law said, no extension, but they gave an inch, awhile later. I bought 10 rounders @ $30 because mine extend 1 1/8 inch, without sanding
