M&P magazines
 
Rant: Just jumped on the M&P bandwagon recently, and can't find 9mm mags to save my soul. I'm on notification lists from every online source I can think of, and I check gunbot several times a day. I do have 4 back ordered from S&W, but who knows when I'll get them. Aargh!

I bought one too. Only have one magazine because I bought it at a gun show and the dealer messed up, and I didn't notice in time. It's painful. At least my wife has two magazines for hers....

I just recently bought 2 mags from www.midwayusa.com they were 33 bucks a piece limit two per person, not sure if they are still in stock but worth a look

I must've missed it. I'm signed up for their email notification for the 17 round mags....At least I thought I was. Have to try it again.

Just checked with midway. They disabled notifications... Of course.

I have a guy with 4 10 round mags for sale 150 for all 4 brand new never loaded. PM me if you are interested.

That's a fair price all things considered, and I appreciate the offer, but I think I'll hold out for 17 rounders. Thanks, anyways!

Chalk this up to an important lessoned learned.

When buying a new firerarm, check that accessories are available (including extra mags).

chachimacho 05-16-2013 09:13 PM

No lesson learned, really. I knew from the giddy up that mags are scarce. I also can't find 22lr, .223, .380, 9mm, .45acp, primers, powder, brass, dies, Ruger 22/45 mags, Glock mags, AR mags, etc. I'm not going to sit on my thumbs and wait till it all blows over, ya know? It took me 3 months to find an M&P Pro... Should I have passed on it because I can't find spares? Nope!

You made an informed decision.

There are others that look at the glitz and bling of a new firearm without other considerations.
