Just need to vent. I know there's a shortage.
So decided to go to Project Appleseed this coming weekend with my son. The M&P 15/22 we have is too heavy for him, so bought a Marlin 795. He did pretty well with the stock sights and have new sights ordered for tomorrow to install.
Can't locate Marlin mags anywhere other than ebay. Searched all weekend. Took it where the sun don't shine and picked up two from there, as you need a minimum of two for Appleseed. Fine - we'll get use out of them, but I won't ever be able to look at them other like a cheap whore.
So I have two 25 rnd mags for the M&P, but Appleseed recommends the 10 rnd for the testing on day 2, as well as just easier to work in prone. Nothing other than ebay - $$$$$ 50 EACH!! For 10 rnd mags!!! No thank you ***kers! I'll get by just fine with the 25's.
Guess I'm just ticked because this is something for my kid more than me. We will be set regardless and have a good time. But this is .22lr - not AR mags - nobody's overthrowing the government with a .22lr. I thought the ammo pimps were bad...
I'm not dumb. I just have a command of thoroughly useless information.
