The dealer I use says the same thing, and when I go to their range, I have to show up with all mags UNLOADED.
My computer is a bit kaput right now, otherwise I could point the earlier poster to the Maryland law/regulation that says that a magazine in transit must be unloaded. I have it bookmarked, but I'm on my wife's computer right now.
