Gun Ban List — Prohibited Guns, Ammo, and Parts in Every State

Cheaper Than Dirt Shooters's Log Ban List

Cheaper Than Dirt (CTD), a Texas-based gun product retailer, has compiled a great resource that can benefit gun owners. CTD has created a “BANNED LIST” which catalogs firearms, ammo, and gun-related products (such as magazines) that are banned in particular states. This Overview of Restricted Guns, Ammo and Parts in Each State is searchable by state, so you can quickly identify the guns, ammo, and gun-related products banned in your location.

Wilburn Roberts, CTD Blog editor, explains: “You must be aware of local laws. I have authored more than 6,000 firearm-related articles, written 14 books on the topic of firearms and served as a peace officer and security professional for decades. I’m still learning new things related to laws every day.

Why read up on this topic? For starters, some things you would never have guessed are illegal. As an example, did you know that some states ban ‘wallet holsters?’ These are holsters that allow you to carry a handgun like a Beretta .25 ACP (or sometimes a small revolver) in the back pocket.

Be careful, as many things you are able to purchase easily online could be illegal in your home state. Some are patently illegal, others are illegal only if you carry them.

That being said, this is a report on certain items that are banned in one state or another. Feel free to use it as a reference for your own research. It contains pertinent gun laws nationwide and is separated on a state-by-state basis. It is ultimately your responsibility to study your own state laws and those of the states you travel in. Lawws might be … more complex than they first appear. Double-check the laws for your state. Also, remember that these laws are subject to change. At the end of the day, you should never order anything that is illegal in your state.”

DISCLAIMER: This is not intended to be a comprehensive or complete list of gun laws. The information provided is not intended as legal advice or a restatement of law. For any particular situation, it is highly recommended that a licensed local attorney be consulted for an accurate interpretation.

Lenzi Rear Bag — Great Product from Italy, Offered by PMA Tool

PMA Tool Lenzi Rear Bag SEB front rest top Pat Reagin Weaver 46x48 XR T-Series
PMA Tool Lenzi Rear Bag SEB front rest top Pat Reagin Weaver 46x48 XR T-Series

Look carefully at the photo above. That stylish black rear bag doesn’t look anything like an Edgewood or Protektor — it’s a Lenzi bag from Italy. The front Bag-holder on the SEB Neo Rest is also a Lenzi product.

Lenzi Rear Sand Bag
Pat Reagin of PMA Tool offers a really superb rear bag that comes from Italy. Pat tells us: “We are now carrying rear bags made by Italian benchrester Alberto Lenzi. Made in Italy, these Lenzi bags are AWESOME! They are available for short range and one that is slighty taller for long range.” The Lenzi rear bags feature a big, 8″ x 6″ footprint with a thick, slightly concave base that sits very flat on the bench top. Lenzi bags are very stable with a reassuring “dead” feel on the bench. Guys who have tried this bag really like it. Pat says: “I can’t explain it, but the bag seems to absorb energy/recoil better than other bags — the gun tracks a little better and I get back on target really well.” CLICK HERE for more information: Lenzi Long Range Rear Bag | Lenzi Standard Rear Bag.

– Black leather with Cordura at stock contact points with blue stitching.
– 1/2″ flat between medium ears.
– Heavy 8″x6″ base with built-in “donut”.
– Weight about 15.5 lbs filled with heavy sand in bottom & white sand in ears.

Lenzi Replacement Top for SEB NEO Front Rest
A common complaint about the SEB NEO rest is the rest top, specifically the three-piece bag. This rest top made by Alberto Lenzi addresses the issue by replacing the entire rest top. The rest top features a more conventional design and includes a traditional style front bag that conforms to IBS and NBRSA rules.

The Lenzi Replacement SEB Top with Super-Slick Bag is $275.95, while the bag alone is $75.95. Choose either a Super-Slick (3M Silver) Front Bag or Lenzi Cordura-style Front Bag. NOTE: Lenzi also makes a replacement Front Bag-holder for Farley Rests

Lenzi bags are sold in the USA by PMA Tool and Bruno Shooters Supply.
