Default Why Does This Always Happen?

About a year and 1/2 ago, I lost/misplaced an empty handgun bag with an empty magazine in it. Emptied out all of the closets, checked all the dressers, the garage, under the bed....everywhere, and it was not to be found. Monday I ordered 2 more magazines at a total of $57.00, due here tomorrow. I walked into the house a few minutes ago after a doctor's appointment, and what do you think was lying on the kitchen table?
As I was filling out the order form, I said to myself "Watch. As soon as you order these, you'll find the bag with the spare in it".
Flashlights, hunting knives, fillet knives, tools.....if you want them back, just go buy a new one.

God we're such an upbeat crowd! The magazine is half full, not half empty.

Actually, it's 4 mags. Oh well, it will cut down on range time spent reloading!

4 mags sounds like a great place to start to me. 8 would be better, but 4 will get you out of trouble should the need arise.

I was working the one I could find to death! It's an AMT .380 Backup single-action, and while a lot of them were produced, they quit making them quite a while ago and parts are hard to find. Dropped off my CCW application today, and out of all the small arms quals I had in the Navy, the only documentation I have is for the M2, but they accepted it. Like I'm going to conceal a .50 cal machine gun under a jacket........
