Couldn't he modify his CA compliant magazines to allow the extra rounds now that he is back on US soil?
M&P restricted-capacity mags don't use crimped full-length steel bodies like some older 10rd mags. Instead, the actual magazine body is only long enough to accommodate 10 rounds, and the bottom 1/4-1/3 of the mag is solid molded plastic- essentially an extra-thick floor plate.

It would be easier to build new 17rd mags from scratch than to modify an M&P 10rd mag.
Can you get 40S&W mags for the same gun?
Based on attending a big gun show this past weekend and perusing various online sources, it's hard to get ANY >10rd mag for ANY commonplace new-production pistol right now.
