More than a million high-capacity ammunition magazines flooded into California during a one-week window created when a federal judge temporarily threw out the state's ban, gun owners' groups estimated on Thursday.

Reform groups said the projections are self-serving as gun rights organizations try to make the case that magazines holding more than 10 bullets are so common now that a ban is impractical.

The magazines aren't tracked. But there are plenty of anecdotal evidence that the floodgates briefly opened when US District Judge Roger Benitez overturned the state's nearly 20-year-old ban late last month.

The judge halted sales a week later, but ruled that those who bought the magazines can legally own them while the state appeals his ruling.


'Everything was all sold out. I basically took whatever I could get,' said Chris Puehse, who owns Foothill Ammo in Shingle Springs, east of Sacramento

Reformers expect the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals to keep the ban on sales while reinstating a 2016 law and ballot measure banning possession even by those who own them legally.

Opponents are counting on the U.S. Supreme Court to ultimately side with Benitez's ruling that the bans infringe on the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

'Because of that one slip-up, in one week you literally had millions of magazines come into the state that were bought legally,' said Puehse, the gun shop owner. 'These magazines are here to stay.'
