THIS.

I have more ammo/mags than i'd need now, but i'll really stock up sometime this year assuming i can.

I need to ensure i can shoot for fun for the forseeable future.

Out of curiousity, let's say you have 10 PMags and you feel that's sufficient for your shooting needs. Prices cool down and you can buy another 10 for $125 or so.

What would you do with an extra 10 PMags?

I am contemplating the same thing with some of my "high capacity" pistol magazines. I've already got plenty for when I go to the range and wouldn't likely use more. But I have a semi-irrational desire to buy more "just in case."

To what? Stockpile them and let them collect dust? Unless I can turn around and sell them at a high enough profit to justify my time spent, I'm thinking that money would be better blown on a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle or fuel at the track.

You can FIND a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle?! You could probably trade that for a few post-apocalypse AR15s.

Resell them at a profit during the next panic. I've got 13 PMags now. I'm thinking I'll keep 5 and sell 8. Even if I down-load them to 28 rounds, that's still 140 rounds ready to go at any time. And selling the other 8 at $40-50 apiece on eBay will be a nice return on my investment.

No kidding. I completely missed the last allotment, apparently.

Okay, I know I'm going to sound like a retard, but what is a pmag? Polymer, as in plastic instead of metal?

Wish I'd bought a couple of magazines and some ammo a while back. Buddy had lots of pics of coyotes on his trail cams, and wants to go do some varmit hunting.

Magpul PMag = polymer AR magazine. Very durable and reliable (normally) at a reasonable price. Pretty much the industry standard at this point.

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
Ordered them as soon as you posted this. Just got a message saying they are out of stock. Well crap.

I ordered a little over 2 hours ago, got a confirmation, no "out of stock" email yet. They must not have had enough time to get to my order yet to send me the email.

Aw damn, i'll edit the post in that case.

As for what would I do with more pmags? load them up and store them in my gun safe, of course. Honestly, there's no "need" for them - but hey there's also no "need" for a 250+whp miata, so god bless america.

Anyone have a decent AR lower, looking to build one here soon and Corpus prices are ridiculous.

Watched it live at work today.

Bottom line: NRA says "put good guys with guns in schools, and bad guys with guns will stay away."

Stopped by Cabela's today after discovering what idiots are paying for those things, was going to buy as many as they had.. Too bad all 900 from their inventory was sold on Sunday, along with that PTR91 I've been thinking about buying for the last 5 months. Sad.

Damn. PMags up to $160 for 2.

Do I sell all 8 right now? Wait a few days to see if it goes higher? Sell 2 now, wait a day or two, sell 2 more, etc.?

I put mine up as a lot of 10, to make things simpler.

Can anyone recommend a complete ar15 lower for under $200? Preferably one that could be mated to a upper that will shoot 5.56 and either 7.62x39 or 7.62x51 NATO. I'm lookin' to get one to be grandfathered in before Obammer gets em all permabanned. Also I want to shoot me some hogs and cayots, hence the 5.56 and heavier caliber capabilities.

Complete lower for under $200? You're talking about a polymer New Frontier, before the panic.

Now? No chance.

Listed 2 mags together. Going to see how that goes and watch the prices over the next couple of days. Think it might go even higher over Christmas as people are off work and bored...if the prices start to drop, I'll just dump the rest in one auction.
