Firearms Supplier Sells More Than Three Years Worth Of Magazines In Just Three Days. "Mad Bob" reacts.

"Don't worry if you didn't get enough mags before the panic. You can get all you want out of dead men's ammo pouches after the civil war begins." -- COL Robert "Mad Bob" REDACTED, Commander of the Dogtown Rangers Constitutional Militia, Blount County, Alabama.
"To shed some more light on the magazine situation at present, it really has been unprecedented in the last 5 days. During a roughly 72 hour period...we sold the 'average demand' equivalent of about 3.5 years worth of PMAGS, and an even greater amount of our Brownells magazines."

It's not just 30-rounders. Jeff Cahill says that TangoDown, which produces what is arguably the best magazine for firearms that accept AR-15/M16 magazines, has completely run out of both 20- and 30-round magazines.

I'm not sure if it's a good or a bad thing that the statist loving moonbat left is so oblivious to the law of unintended consequences.

Nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced.

As an addition to my last post, a couple of years ago I bought the entire inventory of a small to medium sized gun show exhibitor who tried to expand too fast and ended up in deep financial poo poo. While it only included about 8 guns -- 2 AR clones among them -- he had an gigantic inventory of mags and ammo. Under friendly pressure from friends and fellow gun enthusiasts I sold around 250 20 and 30 round mags (cheap), but kept another 250 for "a rainy day."

The latest "forecast" confirms my stockpiling of those AR mags, and around 200 assorted pistol mags and 25K rounds of 5.56 Lake City ammo -- my tribe is sitting pretty well prepared considering what is promising to be a deluge hitting us in the near future...

Long live financial incompetence!

Col.Mad Bob's advice is good. It includes, rifles, pistols, ammo, boots, cigs, medicine and gold teeth.

Which, as far as we voluntaryists are concerned, is the best thing that could happen. Government is at base violence, and completely illegitimate. It's high time to become an apostate of the government religion.

"Mad Bob" is right. This country is and will be awash in magazines, and they can be manufactured pretty easily too. A fine stock is available for the coming black market. This will make alcohol prohibition look like child's play.
