I have about (10) 30 round mags for my M4. Thanks
You can't buy, sell or transfer large cap mags in MD, Possession is totally legal.

I have the ones I buy shipped to a friend in VA. MSP should know better. I'll try to find the statute for you

Here is the statute

Quote:
29.03.01.30. 30 Possession of Magazines-Exemptions.. The manufacture, sale, offer for sale, purchase, receipt, or transfer of a detachable magazine with a capacity of more than 20 rounds of ammunition is prohibited, with the following exceptions:A. The magazine is for a .22 caliber rifle with a tubular magazine;. B. The magazine is for an individual identified in Regulation .02C(2)a) (c) and (d) of this chapter;. C. The magazine has been rendered permanently inoperative;.
No mention of possession being illegal. Therefore legal
