How calls for gun control work

At 5:30 AM I showed 9,330 units on hand, when the order was received (at 5:00 PM) the quantity available was zero. My distributor reported over 70,000 Magpul PMags were sold last weekend alone.

    I will confess to panic-buying some AR mags yesterday on lunch.

    I wasn’t the only one there, either.

    Dammit! How am I gonna get a hold of SCAR-17 mags for my new purchase??? Ugh.

    Midway USA shows 30 rnd black M2 PMags in stock, limit 2.

    Some 30 rnd AR Stoner in stock as well, also a limit of 2.

    Cabella’s also shows them in stock “on sale” for $14.99, description says 30 end, but 20 rnd pictured.

    Brownells, Nachez, Cheaper Than Dirt, Palmetto Armory, etc. are out of stock / back order.

    Think mags are scarce, try finding a quality bolt carrier group for an AR…

    Brownells is out of Pmags? Wow, that was fast. I placed a sizeable order on Friday – coincidentally, I had not heard of the school thingy until around 5:00 PM – and got my e-mail today that it was shipped.

    Must have been divine intervention or something; having lived through 1986 and 1994, maybe my subconscious saw the panic-buying coming.

    I do remember thinking on Saturday that perhaps I might not get that order, and also that I’d hate to be working in the shipping department of Brownells, Midway, et al.

    “…I might not get that order…”

    It’s that time of year, brother. Things *do* get “lost” in the mail from time to time. Especially nice stuff.

    Where’d you say you live again? ;-)

    Most important essay on gun control in the last ten years: http://westernrifleshooters.wordpress.com/2012/09/11/what-i-saw-at-the-coup/ It’s a must-read. Read it and more importantly share.

    Brownells had a 10 for $99 shipped deal on PMAGs that morning. Saw it on Slickdeals, went to grab a set, they’d pulled the plug already.

  10. Jim Scrummy Says:

    I might have purchased some, then again might not have:-)

  11. Ancient Woodsman Says:

    Yep, got my PMags today…along with a few other goodies. Hard to believe that they are currently fetching 10sx what I paid for them as I open the box, and no, I’m not selling any. I’m pretty sure those I have should last me through the rest of my life if I’m careful with them. It is with sweet sorrow thinking that I ordered them before the ‘big news’ that affected us all.

    Frankly, talking with every customer I can get to converse at a crazy gun store, there’s a lot of yahoos buying up just so they can re-sell at higher prices – vultures! And there’s no bet that post-ban one will be able to make such a transfer, as in California where if you own one you will be the last such owner by design of the legislation; no grandfathering.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
