Pmag score

I was at my lgs today and one of the salesman who knows me let me in on a secret. He'll be getting several dozen Pmags (30 rounders) in next week and will be selling them for $16 each. I immediately put down cash for two (that's the alotment he allowed). Talk about being in the right place at the right time!

LGS got a bunch in at 30 bucks a pop, they can keep them. What are the people who spent 50 dollars plus on one P mag going to do when prices bottom out? Dim the lights, turn on some Boy George, and cry softly while drinking cheap box wine?

Buds in Lexington KY is selling the M3 for $39.99. They've had them in stock every time I've gone in there over the last two months.. Guess I know why they are keeping them in stock... I have been disappointed in Buds they have raised all their prices... Handguns, rifles, accessories... Sad really because its the only place I've been buying for the last two years... Lately not so much...

My LGS went the price gouging route. They have a box of Pmags marked at $44.50 a piece! Also have G19 mags for $50.00 a piece and they had one box of LPP's for $47.50. I ended up grabbing a few targets and leaving with nothing else last time I was there.

I'm not bragging, just reporting. I came home last week to a box containing 10 pmags with windows from dsgarms. They were around $15 each.

It depends.
First, I have to assume that they can afford to buy the $50 mags.

Second, I have bought stuff and watched the market change. How many of us have bought a computer to see it become worthless in just a couple years. It happens. You take the loss knowing you got what you wanted when you wanted it.

Third thought, there will be some buyers remorse for those that can not afford something they bought. If someone is reading this and wants to sell something, I will try to give these people a fair shake, but I do believe in supply an demand.

Fourth, I do think a ban will happen in my lifetime. At that point that $50 mag may become something they can not use, can not sell, or may become a $500 mag. As they say on the Class3 forum, there is no such thing as buying a machine gun for too much, but you may be buying it too early for the price.

Quantico is great about that. I'm not too far from their Fort Riley location and they are at every Kansas City metro area gun show with their PMAG '5 for $55' deal.

Yea I have done $thousands in business with buds over the years and went to look at their website the other day and they had 30rd metal AK mags on the front page for $55 each. Sad day indeed. Oh well, hope they sell them it just won't be to me.

Over the last 2 or 3 years, Bud's has not been the deal they used to be. Once they moved to their new retail store in Lexington, prices went up, and the customer service went down. When they were in Paris, it was a better place to go. Now they are so huge on the internet, I think they overcharge in the retail store to stay as competitive as they do on the internet. I bought from them over a year ago on the internet---free shipping, no tax, and my FFL transferred for $15--they can't be beat when you buy that way. But brick and morter store, they don't have the edge they used to.

Sadly, in today's marketplace and glut of panic-buying, just about ANYTHING gun-related at MSRP is indeed great.

I just picked up a handful of 30 round PMags for $13/ea, some .223 for 9.95/20 and some 5.56 for 8.95/20

It's out there.... if you look.

It's the people who stock up every possible chance, until they have 10,000 rounds of each caliber, and 50+ magazines are the ones causing the shortages, and are the reason people like me can't find ANYTHING. Can't get a single box of ammo, and can't find a 6th AR magazine. About 10% of the gun people are overdoing it. If the worst happens, and they actually have to use those things, how is a small fraction of--not everyone, just of the gun folks--gonna be able to do anything? They'll have forced everyone else out of being able to get in on the action. Ammo and magazines will collect dust in basements, while millions can't do a thing.

Overdoing it by whose standards? Who gets to decide when somebody has enough, you? Who are you to tell somebody what they do or don't need? And if you can't find a 6th AR magazine, you aren't looking hard enough.
