Magazines are consumables. They wear, they fail.This begs the question; how many magazines is enough? Back when I was just entering adulthood during the Obama years, I never prioritized collecting extra magazines for a rainy day.
I have since become much wiser and made sure to accumulate more magazines here and there throughout the Trump years. I have a healthy amount now but will probably try to pick up at least a couple more just in case there is a run on them.
Screw that, it only develops training scars. An empty mag hitting the dirt should not do anything to it and if it does that mag was a POS ready to fail.Also, adjustments can be made to practical drills to mitigate magazine damage. Easiest is to practice administrative swaps, rather than drops, using well placed dump pouches.
I guess we have you to blame for starting the run on mags then! (Kidding of course!)An update to my first response on this post. Palmetto State Armory is now out of all .223/5.56 D&H mags. Both the 10 mags deal and the 7 mag deal with the gun case are gone. As well as the single D&H mag listing. The cheapest .223/5.56 mags are Pmags at nearly 13$.
You are correct & I do agree to to an extent.Screw that, it only develops training scars. An empty mag hitting the dirt should not do anything to it and if it does that mag was a POS ready to fail.
Smoke ones are $19FWIW, Sportsman's in Vancouver has hundreds of P-Mags a whole bunch of other brands of AR mags and lots of Glock mags. But absolutely no .300 Blackout Lancer mags
