    Think your late to the party lol. But yes I have seen this local since last week.

    I'm at the point now where I just want to expand my collection of rare mags.

    There is going to be a run on lots of stuff as States begin to lock things down. Food, meds and weapon related items now, other stuff soon.

    I’m a little surprised magazines weren’t hit harder earlier, as far as panic buying goes. You figure a lot of people panic buying aren’t about to go spend the time and ammo familiarizing themselves with their purchase, they just want stuff available to use just in case. And in that kind of case, 100-200 rounds of ammo and 5-6 magazines is more useful than 500-1000 rounds of ammo and 1-2 magazines.

    I don't believe most new gun owners think of extra mags.

    I actually suspect sooner that it’s enough ammo but only 1 mag to load it all through ( at least for those that started panicking earlier rather than later). In which case, you better not need more than that. Though in all reality unless shit goes to hell you probably shouldn’t.

    I bought thousands of rounds of ammo and dozens of mags in the new year because I wasn't able to afford what I wanted last year, and I wanted to beat the election panic.

    Then COVID really ramped up here and I have no regrets.

    I have been buying magazines and ammo for many years, so I am not affected by what ever the panic du jour is. I probably have a few hundred magazines for the various firearms that I figure will be my primary arms and enough ammo to get by with. I even have several extra magazines for guns that I have no practical use for, like Lugers and P38's.
