Wow. Ouch. But wait, this has to be better!

It's the same as the argument as San Francisco having an $11 minimum wage now -- you see, the average house costs $585,000.00 and so if businesses are forced to pay at least $11/hr. then it's only more fair and the economy will pick up because everyone will make so much money!

Similarly, the more you spend on guns, parts, ammo and taxes the more you are just helping the economy! Don't you see!?

Going to try out some EMAGs from Magpul. Supposed to fit 100% AR platforms, but have been modified to fit Export type AR's. Just under 22$ each. At the time of purchase there was no back order, but you never know.
Below is from US Tactical website: www.ustacticalsupply.com


The EMAG (Export MAGazine) is a lightweight 30-round 5.56x45 NATO polymer magazine that features a number of aesthetic and functional changes from the original PMAG®. While EMAG remains 100% compatible with the AR15/M16 platform, its unique geometry is optimized for foreign-made weapons such as the HK 416, British SA-80, M27 IAR, and others.

To enhance compatibility with double and triple magazine pouches as well as aftermarket mag couplers, the EMAG features a slim, rib-less, anti-snag profile. Front-to-back and side-to-side dimensions have been adjusted to ensure compatibility with as many 'STANAG 4179' compliant weapons as possible, including most non Colt-spec AR15 rifles.

EMAG features the same pop-off Impact/Dust Cover as the PMAG to prevent dirt and debris intrusion and protect the feedlips from impact damage during storage. When not in use, the Impact/Dust Cover can be stored on the magazine's floorplate to prevent possible loss.

For easy and accurate identification of loaded round count via the large, dual-sided MagLevel windows, the stainless steel magazine spring is coated with mil-spec black oxide and the indicator coil painted with a high visibility orange color. Numerical indicators are added to the body to identify 5, 15, and 25 loaded rounds.

Features:

Impact and crush resistant polymer construction
Constant-curve internal geometry for smooth feeding
Anti-tilt, self-lubricating follower for increased reliability
Multi-use Impact/Dust Cover keeps dust and dirt out of the magazine during storage and protects the feedlips from potential hard impact damage during transit
Black-oxide coated (MIL-DTL-13924D) USGI-spec stainless steel spring
Transparent MagLevel windows on both sides of the body along with a painted indicator on the spring allows for easy determination of rounds remaining
Textured gripping surface and flared floorplate for positive magazine handling and easy disassembly

Made in U.S.A.

Stock up on .22lr and .177 pellets, before the prices inflate on those too, so you can still do some plinking without paying rediculous prices

The people do seem to have lost their minds. I had bought a 500 case of Wolf back in early November for $139. I sold it last week for $300. .60 a round for steel case. I almost felt bad about it. Of course, that was almost. Then I remembered I just made $160.

I was at a gun show in Vegas last weekend. I came across a Delton, price 2300. I stopped and asked if it was a total Delton. Yep. I asked if I could do a field strip. He said no, but I will for you. Yessir it was all total Delton. I told the guy I would pass. I came back to the same table about an hour later. Their was a guy wearing 500 dollar shoes, new blue jeans, nice silk shirt, and he had just bought it. He was asking questions of the seller on how it operated.

This is not gonna turn out good.
