Nobody cares unless it's an AR.

I picked up a Browning 1911-22 for the wife a few weeks ago.

Agreed, ARs are just fun to build... but I'm fairly sure they are more diverse... I know I am.

fun fun.

Looking for some more brass though now, also picked up 5 more pmags for my ar. Looking at 11 total now, so i guess that's enough.

Right now, if you can find steel for .25cents a round, it's a good deal. For brass, .35cents a round is a good deal.

I just checked about 15 major online retailers... there are zero PMAG's in stock anywhere. Buds has sold out of every AR15 on the entire site. The Midway website hasn't been working very well all morning and some of their banners are blank... I'll assume bandwidth.

On the other hand, most of the forums I'm reading just say to give it a few weeks when all the bandwagon types have shut up and it's just Feinstein who is still chanting.

I picked up a new Glaco soft leather IWB for my G19 today... puts the gun way higher on my waist than the previous nylon rig I was using, which is awesome when I draw... big hands. I don't like the plastic belt clip as much, but a few weeks will tell.

I ordered 2 mags from midway yesterday, finally got an email today thanking me for creating my account. Still no order confirmation but there is a pending charge on my credit card.

My wife's uncle owns a pawn shop and yesterday a background check call that normally takes 5mins took over an hr.

On a more mundane note; I have tried a couple of online places(Cheaper than Dirt and Sportsmansguide) just to pick up some cheap target 9mm and they are suddenly out of stock.

CTD is on my no buy list because of their recent gouging. They were selling pmags at $60 each on Monday and $800/1000 salt lake .223.

I have a slight feeling this is going to be a dud of a fear, and people paid too much for ****.

Got my 10 PMags for $100 yesterday. So pretty.

Good grief...PMags are going for $60-70 apiece on eBay. I've got 13 now...how many should I sell?

Yip, i got 5 pmags and was going to buy more.. NOPE. LOL @ this.

100-Pack Magpul PMag Gen M2 MOE Black MAG571-BLK : Rifle Magazines & Rifle Clips at GunBroker.com

And because i love you guys i'll share this. These are still available, jut bought 6. I researched them and they are reported as equal in quality and durability to a PMAG. They are actually the mags used by the IDF currently.

MAG - Command Arms Accessories

Edit: Looks like the command arms mags are sold out. Sorry boys.
