THE 9mm ADDICT
I just got ten Excellent 30 round AK East European mags from AIM. Several look like they have never been used at all. Still have some cosmoline on them.
most people will wait until the panic buying on mags start. then they will be buying them and paying higher prices. then complaining about how they are getting ripped off, price gouging, bad vendors, bad dealers at gun shows, back orders,etc.
it always happens this way. look at ammo, semi-auto rifles (ak's, sks's, ar's, etc.), parts kits, etc.
it wasn't like it wasn't talked about for 2 or three years before the election.
everyone knew or should have know this was coming. if not they were , how do you say this in a nice way, er! " STUPID"
I unfortunately live in the social republic of Maryland where anything over 20 round mags is verboten. The Hungarian 20 round tanker mags are my mag of choice. I was very happy after doing my Saiga 922r conversion after I installed a Dinzag bullet guide. My 7.62x39 feeds great with real AK mags.
THE 9mm ADDICT
The deal is we are NOT seeing any new ammo production. Some body in the GOOBERMENT has thrown a secret switch?
Right now is the time when MAGS are still real easy to get. They will be saying next Fall, "Remember when you could get almost NEW AK, 20 rounders for $14". Like KRINK kits were two years ago. Romy-G series kits complete for $98!
Remember them good ole days!
what you think there is some conspiracy out there that ammo makers are not making ammo? the ammo is being made it's just asshats with alot of cash are stocking their garages from floor to ceiling

people were posting on all the sites, "BUY AMMO" sorry but it was a no brainer to buy ammo. many people did just that and now have ammo. i quit buying in early 2008, i have enough for my grandson and me for a long time.
how much did you guys buy? or are you part of the group that is blaming everyone, our govt., every foreign country, every dealer, every importer,etc.
they blame anyone but themselves. all over the gun site people are crying about poor me and how bad it is that someone can now afford to buy ammo even at these high prices. if you want ammo then just sell something, work at an extra job for some extra money and buy it. if they sell out before you can get some ammo. then i guess your out of luck. maybe some should just find another hobby they can afford.
now if you are a big follower of the obamanation way of thinking everyone should give or sell ammo to these poor guys at the 2004 to 2007 prices.
guess what, it is not going to happen. if you can find it now you are going to pay a higher price.
i also heard there maybe a rush on paper towels, (crying towels), so get some early and stock up.
OH! if you don't have enough mags now, buy them now.
or you can wait until the prices go up or they are sold out. DUH!
I didn't get in early enough, so I have to buy strategically, but I saw the storm coming early enough to get a better deal than what we are seeing right now... No crying here, and Ammo one day will be cheap again, one day.
Bought cheap--stacked deep. Picking up mags here and there. Mostly from Sportsman's Guide, but already have plenty.
