It is a class D felony to manufacture, transport, dispose of, or possess a large capacity ammunition feeding device, which N.Y. Penal Law ยง 265.00(23) defines as "a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device" manufactured after September 13, 1994, "that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than ten rounds of ammunition." Section 265.02.

My friend has some "pre-ban" clips for his glock that hold more than 10. Too bad my pistol is waay too new to have any such thing.

You can use the pre-ban magazines in any gun. The magazines can not be brought into the state but the ones that are already here are perfectly legal in every way.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
