Invest in high-cap mags???

I have plenty and don't need more but I'm toying with squirreling them away while they are super cheap, plentiful, and unregulated.

Justified investment or unjustified paranoia? I'd like input...

No crying later because, as I said, I have plenty and don't need more.

This inquiry is strictly about investing with an eye toward future profit.

AMEN!!!


I outfit all my handguns with a minimum of 6 mags, the norm is 12 mags, anything that can be considered as a SHTF gun (like my 92G Brig Tac) get 2 dozen (12 20rd M9-A1mags, 12 15rd PVD sand resist coated).


My last firearm purchase was an AR-10, within 2 weeks after the purchase, I had 12 20rd and 12 25rd mags onhand (and a few 10rd "prone" mags, just in case).

No, I gotcha. If I had more storage space, I'd by literally 5,000 of the $9 AR 30 rounders from MagPul, considering how much such things sold for during the first AWB.

Yeah, the Gen3 Magpul MSR mags are the ones to get right now.


Be aware some of the earlier M'puls are still in the supply system.

I bought a 100 rd mag for the AR last year, just for the principle of the thing. I have yet to load or use it. Every one should own one, just because.....

I've avoided the rotary mags. They seem to be less reliable (then standard mags) from what I have read/seen online. This relegates them to nothing more then expensive range mags.

That's the way to go, it seems the new rotary stuff is not anything to bet your life on.
