Low capacity mags
#1
Is anyone else considering purchasing lower capacity mags now as a safeguard against potential legislation and further price gouging on said mags if negative things happen?

Carry mags, rifle mags. I am. Might as well be ahead of the curve.
For me I am thinking
(2) 10 rd CZ 75 mags
(2) 10 rd CZ 83 mags
Quite a bit of both 5 & 10 rd AR mags whilst they are still available at a sane price.

I figure more lower cap is better than just the current amount of mags in my inventory. At any rate they can become range mags for me as my club allows only 10 rds loaded.

No. I'd rather save my money and potentially go to jail than cave in to feel good bullshit pussy laws. Bunch of jerkoffs aren't going to force me to do shit when I'm not hurting anyone.

That was my thought too except when I thought about hassle from LE because I OC almost exclusively. Plus I won't have to count at the range.

They don't make many 10rd AK74 magazines.

Why bother? Mags aren't tracked, and if you have to turn in the mags you'll likely have to turn in the guns that use them too.

Initially short mags will be hard to come by as everyone wants to throw one in their guns for the range or whatnot, but if that's all mag makers will be allowed to sell or produce I highly doubt there will be a shortage.

They will, if a ban goes into effect.

Dumb question: why is 10 rounds the magic number?

Because the Ruger MkIII and 10/22 are so ubiquitous?

I'm with Camper. If we get a mag restriction, that's all manufacturers will be able to produce for civilians. There will be no shortage. If some unlikely scenario dictates that all currently owned magazines must be capped at ten, manufacturers will produce plugs to make them legal.

I'd spend my money on high cap mags in a few weeks when some of the madness has died down and before the discussions begin in earnest. Manufacturers have increased production and this shortage will ease although prices will likely be higher than they were before the buying frenzy.

I'm still cautiously optimistic that the House will shut down any gun ban legislation. The Republicans want to hold the House in two years, a pro gun ban vote will sink most incumbent Republicans in the primary which will make that seat more vulnerable. Leadership knows it, I expect them to head off any legislation.

Nobody makes AK74 mags except ProMag. The rest are milsurp and even that supply is dry. Has been for over a year.

This crazy thought just popped into my head...

Why would the republicans fear losing our votes.
It's not like people who vote "R" are going to go and vote "D" to "punish" them. That would be cutting off your nose to spite your face.
I'd rather eat broken glass than vote for "most" democrats based solely on their party philosophy alone.

Any thoughts on that?

They know that an incumbent primary loss to a Tea Party type would likely cost them the seat to a democrat in a moderate district. They have a fine line to walk. They know that a lot of gun people didn't vote Romney, even with support from the NRA, and voted third party or didn't vote. They need the gun owners to remain loyal to them both individually and as a party.
