The YouTube vids show the contrary. They show people abusing and trying to see how much the mag can withstand. Needless to say the standard gi mags fail to hold up. Just look them up. If you ask me, any mag that can fire better that a standard mag with a bullet hole in it and half of the spring missing gets my vote any day. Now just to be sure you get my argument I'm not saying the pmags are invincible, they do fail but stand up to tougher (let's say tests) alot better than standard mags. Just YouTube them

Jon,
Basing any of one's choices on anything the "tards on the show" do puts one in their league, and I think you are way above that. Having said that, I have a couple of Orlite plastic mags I got during the Clinton gun ban of 94-04, and they do all right by me. Sons of Guns are idiots who shouldn't be trusted with a potato gun.

Fitting.
Ironic isn't it that the thread takes an "anti-tactical tupperware" bent from the start, huh?

LOL, being the OP this makes me happy.......not a fan of tactical tupperware.

That typed i DO carry a PF-9 and DID purchase a Pmag...which slides into the AR better than the original factory mag.

I guess the best way to learn is try the stuff out and beat the hell outta it myself. If it works well, it gets good ratings from me...if not, you will definitely NOT hear the end of it.

Stock GI mags get bypassed as they are not as reliable as PMags. There's a reason manufacturers have started selling GI mags w/ Magpul followers. I use PMags as do many deployed soldiers of all levels. They even have an NSN #.

I understand sticking w/ what you know but you are missing out on the most reliable magazine on the market.

Polymer is flexible and more durable then the aluminum.

If it ain't broke improve on it
It all depends on "where" you take contact. If you talking downtown Tikrit or Kabul, urban environment, then sure, the 3-5 is probably not the preferred movement technique but in a woodland environment it's still quite practical and a basic component of fire and maneuver.

Im sure one day we'll be at war in an environment like that but we haven't in some time. Even in the mnt. of Afghanistan we didn't 3-5. 3-5 didn't seem to smart of a move considering most of the contact came from above atop some cliff or ridge.

That's just my experience however. I'm glad this came up because I had never really thought about it until now. It's funny seeing as how much they stressed it in training.

That's an excellent plan and one I use myself. The internet can be misleading at first. Sometimes it save you a hassle (like paying extra for a Spikes 22lr conversion over the CMMG) and sometimes it's misleading, like people bitching about Glocks because they want to justify their $3K Wilson 1911 purchase.

My buddy likes mil spec mags, I started with pmags. Both run in their prospective guns which is all that counts IMO.

PMAG
- $10.00 each with no-tilt followers
- will run 30 with extra room for compression (I still run 28)
- tougher than aluminum or steel

what's not to like?

Yeah, we all tend to lump what works and doesn't work into our personal experiences and environment.

I live in the Pacific North West and a SHTF situation is the only way I'd ever have need to hit the groung quickly again. Sure it's unlikely, but train as you'll fight and have equipment that suits your environment is constant.
