Ready to go
« on: March 08, 2011, 07:27:10 PM »
Well, I'll be leaving on a road trip to the west coast, and i'll be wearing the CZ82.  Also one of the first stops out there is the desert in So. Cal where my sone and his gun nut fire department buddies are staging the "First Annual Watermelon Demolition Derby" in my honor.  While mostly it will be long guns (my VZ58 equipped with a Kydex fin non-grip and Saiga 7.62x39 also equipped with one - as well as their various Black Rifles with bullet buttons or fin grips), the CZ82 will get wrung out also.  I picked up 4 extra mags from Apex, a set of assorted extra power springs, and just got 1,000 rounds of Brown Bear for $170 from AIM Surplus.  No watermelon zombie, derelict washing machine, or water jug will be safe.

You do realize the CZ82 is an illegal gun in California if you get caught with it?  I'm just saying. It holds more than 10 rounds.

Yes be on the safe side.  Have fun and pack the guns deep in the trunk (under the spare) and don't volunteer any information about them.  I guess it would be nice if some company made 10 round mags for when we have to go to one of the many cereal* states in our great country.

Known cereal states. California, New Jersey, New York, & Illinois.

* the lands of Fruits, Flakes, & Nuts.

Someone must make California Legal magazines, because J&G Sales sells a "California" magazine

A CZ 83 mag will fit in the 82 and if you load it with 9x18 instead of .380 it will hold 9 rounds.  This is what I was told but I have not tried it personally.

I have two things going for me:  Retired California law enforcement (with ID and 12020 PC CCW), and I lived in California since before the ban and possessed high cap mags legally both before and after the ban.  When I moved out in 2007, I took the mags with me.  Under statute, since I lived there before the ban and after, and possessed high caps legally, I can bring back high caps into the state legally.  The burden of proof (by case law) is on them to prove I didn't possess them before the ban.  If I had never lived there, they could do that presumptively.  However, since I was California LE, and a FFL and dealer dealing in firearms and magazines before and after the ban, the presumption is on my side.  I did in truth have boxes and boxes of different high capacity magazines, pistol and rifle, for guns I did not own at the time, but may have wanted to buy.  I could possess any high caps, I just couldn't sell them after the 2000 ban.  

Considering I retired medically after 20 years with a body so busted up (back, shoulders, wrist, neck, ankle -9 surgeries total) from on duty injuries, I have a 69% total disability rating, I earned the right.

Have a great time and introduce those folks to the CZ 82 - just be sure to tell them where they can get 9 round mags!   ;D

You certainly did earn the right!  Have at it!  You should have some fun with that 82 in Californistan.
