Say high cap mags are banned in your state soon. How many mags should you have to last a lifetime? Posted on May 21, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor Say high cap mags are banned in your state soon. How many mags should you have to last a lifetime?
Idk bro they cost $8 just buy 10 every time you buy ammo lmao
Been doing this for years. I've no idea how many mags I even have.
based mathematician's take
whoops, all .45-70
littly gubby pew pew shootin in the forest, aiming for all the field mice and blowin off their heads
Start rebranding them at 10 round .50 beowulf mags.
Even better, 10 rounds = half pound of lead. You can buy engraved Beowulf floor plates on GB.
I'll give you an Eurofag's take because the issue is relevant here. The issue was never the mags, it's the powers that be eventually resorting to banning ammo. Hoard ammo, not mags.
This. Magazines are hard to get right but there's nothing in them that can be easily restricted. Sure it might take a while to figure out a source of springs that work well but other than that you can literally 3D print them or just make them out from sheet metal.
Ammunition is way more tricky, especially smokeless that doesn't require too many weird ass purchases.
Okay, so they ban ammo. What then? What do the guns do? Sit in a safe until your great grandchildren turn them into the state for a gift card? Implying any of you fags will even have children.
Smuggle ammo. A lot easier to corral guns than thousands of loose rounds
Oregon is going beyond just capacity, they are going after the capability to be converted, which essentially means anything with a removable floor plate.
This is already an issue in the US with states like California requiring back ground checks on ammo.
You mean standard capacity mags. Stop acquiescing to their newspeak.
Dear fedboy, if all of my 4 kids have 4 kids on their own, I have enough stacked all of them will be able to set up a rig.
just learn a bit of machining and make them bro
>make something that costs $10
why even bother
spoken like a soon to be poorfag
the trick is to perpetually be poor because you spend all your money on guns and guns accessories
Based starcraft strategist. Minerals are marines that aren't shooting up meth and shooting down mutalisks. Vespene gas is several siege tanks not not kiting a bio ball.
For me high tier: HK steel, FN steel, Okay ind. Surefeed, Magpul Gen3, Magpul emag
Medium tier:Lancer, gen2 Magpul,
Low tier: Troy, eLander, Puf guns
I can’t imagine the high tier mags going bad for many years. 30 count would be enough for my needs.
Shoutout to duramag steels. Never had the paint chip away like on cheapass metal mags
I’ve heard good things about Duramag, I just tier listed the ones i own personally.

It's absolutely true that mags will never wear out if all you do is dump a mag into a trash pile once a year.
Reddit is down the hall and to the left.
Every politician that cucked to COVID will just as easily cu k to ban firearms, mags, and/or ammo if it meant they could profit from it.
>COVID is a hoax
Should be a permaban for posting that shit.
Still mad you fell for it, eh kiddo?
Let them do it 🙂
I don't care because I'm not an amerimutt and don't have to worry about that
I have hundreds of them already
mags don't wear out, 4-5
>mags don't wear out
the noguns shows himself
I’ll help you out they’re called rebuild/repair kits and Beowulf mags
They're selling entire magazines as parts? I'm laughing my ass off why didn't I think of that.
I honestly lost track of how many intermediate caliber mags I have
I have over 100 magazines. Once you reach a certain number of magazines the issue becomes ammo. I doubt I'll live long enough to even have to reload my AR more than one or two times in the event of a total moron event in my city.
yea ammo is the issue once you have so many mags you just try to find the best price on ammo you can to keep stocked, it's a pain in the ass keeping track of everything I usually keep a notepad of ammo stock and supplies and update it.
Have a friend that keeps about 500 30 round magazines fully loaded in his basement in a huge sealed storage box. That's 15k of just ammo that he's not shooting.
Isn't this whole issue moot, at least logistically speaking, because most 10 round mags already are physically 30 round mags and can be very easily felonied back into being 30 round mags the minute anyone is so criminally inclined?
This also doesn’t account for all the 30-round mags being sold by armory personnel from the various military bases; take CA: Camp Pendleton (as part of the Marines as a whole) replaced all the steel mags for the new polymer ones. Most of those mags weren’t dermo’ed, and from the people I talked to most dudes sold them for $3 in amounts of 100+. This doesn’t even get in to the logistical fuck-ups that happen with ordering mags in general: one of our line companies submitted 3 separate requests for 250 mags because they couldn’t remember if they did it or not. The icing on the cake there is the retard who took their orders and put them in never noticed the other 3 requests they already had.
As long as the armory exists, and Marines/soldiers want some extra cash, 30 round mags won’t be hard to get.
t. Marine in the armory, seen multiple dudes get out with 500+ pmags and sell them on the side.
Not going to even begin talking about repair parts
You talk way too much bud
Enough to take a trip to the statehouse.
If you have more mags than miles you can run it wont matter you are useless and you will die in a happening
>high cap mags
Tank of gas go brrrr and negates state bans.
6+1 is a standard loadout, so i'd say 14 mags at minimum. id also recommend getting one high quality steel mag that you can abuse (reload drills and drops). that way you dont risk damaging your main magazines. PMAGS are durable too but unfortunately the polymers dont hold up quite as well once you get into decades of time. so i recommend all metal mags for hoarding.
Hundreds because they are disposable items. Thousands if you can afford them
50 or so. You can hammer railroad spikes with them and they will still function
problem with this logic is zoomzooms buy too many mags and cant afford ammo. ammo is the main contraint, if ammo gets banned (or restricted to FLL-only sales) then you're fucked. id rather have 50,000 rounds of ammo and 6 mags than the other way around
I live in a major metro area so ammo from dealers is easy to get.
>how many mags
all of them, also
>high cap mags
no such thing
The simple answer is that you really can't have enough. You never know what will happen legally and realistically AR mags are so cheap that anyone who's into guns enough to want them should have a decent little stockpile. That said I think someone just getting their first AR should want at least 10, bare minimum. From there just make it a point to buy one every time you find yourself in a gun store. Before you know it, you'll have 30 of them.
Baste. I strive for 10 mags per gun, more for AR’s. I got to keep some old Colt/Bushmaster mags from a prior job and just put new springs and followers in, better than new.
what is the best metal mag on the market now that the surefeeds are done
PSA sold. Jizzlee approved.
The word hoax, lie, or similar wasn't in his post at all. He very well could believe covid is indeed a thing but wasn't shit other than being over hyped.
>surefeeds are done
What do you mean by this? They stopped production? They stopped working?
the meme hype died so they aren't relevant anymore
Stopped production. They're collector's items now.
You think they're gonna include 22lr in their ban attempts?
You mean a regular standard boring run of the mill 30 rounder?
I'm thinking you're a garden gnome journo blow it out your ass.
I have a car and can drive across state lines
>"high cap mags"
>uses a picture of standard cap mags
Five. One in the gun, one in case that one runs out, three waiting back home.
High-capacity magazines are crutches for people who can't aim, can't prioritize, and can't pick their battles. Most scenarios only need 6-7 shots, max. 30 rounds, then, is about 5 of those scenarios.
I carry a 642. I don't care I like the number 30.
I have several dozen 30 rounders, but my question is- how do the 40 rounders compare for quality?
Still wish I could get some of those original 40-rounder mini-14 mags in chrome
40 rd gen3 pmags ar gtg
High cap? Those a 10 round .50 beowulf mags.
