Looking for clarification on the scope of the MA compliant handgun roster. First and foremost: I understand that possession of magazines with a capacity of greater than 10 rounds is not legal in MA.
Regarding the roster - it is my understanding that the applicability of limitations applies to sellers. Meaning that if I were to purchase a gun as a non-LEO in MA through a commercial sale (non-private) my purchase options would be limited to approved roster handguns. I have gone back and read the regulations numerous times but would like to definitively verify because I am frequently hearing different interpretations of these regs.
I have heard both statements below:
A) Roster is Limited to purchase / commercial seller - a MA licensed individual can carry non-roster handguns they own but only with fixed capacity magazines that do not exceed 10 rounds.
B) Applies to carry - if the handgun is not on the roster it cannot be carried - even with fixed 10 round magazines.
For example - I have an unrestricted MA non-resident LTC - I own a Sig Sauer P365 (purchased in NH). It is sold with 12 round magazines which are not legal in MA. Can the P365 be carried in MA with fixed 10 round capacity magazines?
