No but I grew up wanting to be an accountant or Mafia hit man. The Infantry gave me a little of both w/ all the paperwork and the other stuff.

I may look into going into the AF once my degree is finished. .Mil life wasn't bad, the being gone all the time sucked though.

A lot of professionals out there will tell you to get newer model P-Mags, or USGI mags with P-Mag followers. These will cost you about $15 from my shopping. The HK magazines recommended by Bools are also probably very good, since HK generally makes a quality product. It's about your budget, because people carrying these guns in harms way will argue about which of these three choices is best. Try them all and see what your experience is.

Better yet, try the new Troy Battle Mag and come back to us with a review.

I would also recommend a quality sling, like the Blue Force Gear VCAS, as a piece of required equipment.

I agree with bighead. What you choose as your preferred magazine is, just that, your choice. Me, I use TAPCO Gen II PMAG in my AR, but in the Corps we had the USGI mags. Have not had a problem with my PMAGs yet, but am sure one will pop up eventually. The USGI we used in the Corps would usually give you a little hick-up, but then again they went through a lot more rounds than my PMAGs are currently going through. Every mag has its positives and negatives. Just try them out and see what you like, what feels good to you, what makes your little killer inside smile and say, "That makes me want to go shoot something." As for all the bickering over I like this one and you like that one, so you must me wrong BS, it's a forum. That is what they are used for to settle differing opinions in whatever manner you want to, so bicker on brothers.

TAPCO Gen II PMAG?

I have Magpul and S&W PMAGs, I'm sure that's what you meant...

Anyway, PMAG or GI, they're both GTG
