Large Capacity Magazine Exemptions

This program does not offer special pricing at gunmagwarehouse.com. Many states with large capacity magazine restrictions legislated conditions under which certain groups may still purchase and possess large-capacity magazines. GunMag Warehouse may grant the ability to order large-capacity magazines on our website when sent documentation to support an exception. All such approved exemptions expire annually, or sooner if your documentation expires in less than 1 year. We do this to ensure compliance with ongoing large-capacity magazine restrictions.

Law Enforcement

For purchases as an individual, active law enforcement officers (local, state, or federal) are eligible to purchase otherwise restricted magazines in many states that impose magazine restrictions based on capacity. Active LEOs should provide photos of the front and back of their LEO ID when applying for an exemption.

  • Exemptions are only available within these locations: CA, CO, CT, DE, HI, IL (Cook County), MA, MD, NJ , NY, RI, & VT.

Note: NJ imposes a 17-round restriction on LEOs, unless purchasing magazines for an issued weapon. As we’re unable to verify what weapons a department issued, we cannot allow the sale of over 17-round magazines with this exemption.

  • The District of Columbia and WA state do not provide an exception for individual LEOs.

Active-Duty Service Members

Some states have provided exceptions for purchases as an individual by active-duty service members. These individuals should provide photos of the front and back of their military ID when applying for an exemption.

  • Exemptions are available within these locations: CA, DE, MD, RI.
  • Exemptions are available within the state of NY for service members of the following branches only: US Air Force, US Army, US Coast Guard, US Marines (and reserves), & US Navy.
  • As defined by state legislation, we may not grant this exemption to service members in the states of CA or MA unless they are also a member of law enforcement.

Retired Law Enforcement

Some states have provided exceptions for purchases as an individual by retired law enforcement officers. These individuals should provide photos of the front and back of their Retired LEO ID when applying for an exemption. We cannot accept a LEOSA ID as acceptable documentation to show your previous role in law enforcement. We need a department/state issued ID which confirms your former role.

  • Retired LEO exemptions are only available within these states: CA, DE, MD, RI, & VT.

Reserve Law Enforcement

Two states have provided exceptions for purchases as an individual by reserve LEOs. These individuals should provide photos of the front and back of their valid LEO ID when applying for an exemption.

  • When applying for this exemption, please provide photos of your current FFL paperwork.
