Don't see an exemption for rimfire. However, you are exempted with your CCDW.

This is the link to the final ďengrossedĒ version of SB1 which was a substitute for SB6 and was signed into law.

.22 tubular magazines are exempt.  Detachable magazine are limited to 17 rounds irregardless of caliber.

Just as an FYI, it's exceedingly difficult to find any online retailers that will ship an over 17 round magazine to Delaware at the moment.

And those retailers should be notified of the exemptions to the Delaware law and if they continue to refuse to ship to Delaware they should be publicly identified, boycotted and ostracized by the firearms community.

I wonder if the NRA would have the testicular courage to assist with this?

I can 100% confirm that Gun Mag Warehouse is one such retailer that will under no circumstances ship a magazine with an over 17 round capacity to Delaware unless you provide law enforcement or active duty military credentials.

Just checked with MEC-GAR they would not sell me a 15 rnd mag for my MCP35. They tell me they cannot ship to DE. I thought the law was 17 ?

It is.  Send them a copy of the law and if they do not change their policy, notify them that you will take your business elsewhere and post this on any gun related website you can. 

Letís boycott these wussie businesses that suck up to unconstitutional laws.  Iím not saying anyone should break the law but if they are too timid or lazy to conform to the law, they do not deserve to do business with anyone in the firearms community.

You can get MECGAR 15 round mags from Midway.  I did for my MCP45 Ops.

There is a lot of misinformation out there.  Three of the worst sources of information are:

1.  Gun Dealers
2.  Firearms instructors
3.  Police.

This is from a gun and ammunition sales site;

.   AMMUNITION PURCHASE

Purchasing ammunition in Delaware is very strict. In order to buy ammo in Delaware, a CTPP, gun sales permit, or long gun/handgun eligibility certificate is required. There isnít a background check but buyers must be at least 21 years of age and provide proof of valid ID. The same goes for all online purchase ammo shipped to Delaware. 


The problem:   A CTPP is a Connecticut Pistol Purchase certificate.

Another example.  A trainer for the Maryland Wear and Carry tells his classes that the Delaware concealed carry licensee exemption for over 17 round magazines was taken out of the bill

The trainer that I had years ago in Delaware  said that once you have a CCDW license it is a felony to open carry.  When I asked him to site such a law, he got angry and said it has always been the law.
