    If you can have all the AR-15 magazines you want but can only get one capacity type. Which will you choose?

    ADD: For those who are restricted...assume (for this poll) you are not restricted and can get any size you want.

    I only have one choice being that I live in Kommiefornia, and that's a ten or less mag. I buy the pinned 20 rounders just for looks, but I single feed mine most of the time anyways since I am a bench rest shooter. And anything bigger than a 20 rounder hits the bench.

    Would probably stick with a twenty rounder, but a real twenty rounder, for the whole hitting the bench thing. For a zombie gun though, I would want two thirties banded together for quick reloads.

    20 rd, Old USGI w/Aluminum Follower. Back in the day that was all we had.

    Got brainwashed I guess, anything else just feels wrong, kinda like carrying your wallet in the wrong pocket.

    I have 10rd mags for the range and hunting. I also have 30rd mags for the range and SHTF.

    Next up is to get myself a 100rd drum, maybe 2. ;)

    Id probably stick w/ 30s. I wouldnt want more than that hanging from my neck for any extended amount of time.

    For compitition a 60rd Surefire would be nice. I wouldnt go any more than that however.

    Cammenga Easy Load 30 rounders are all I keep now. This weekend I need to box up the rest of the mags I have bought over the years and put them up for bid in the for sale section.

    If Cammenga goes larger in the future, I will look at them and re-evaluate then, but right now the 30's are the best thing going for me and mine.

    I chose 30 but have about fifteen 20s which I find very handy for bench shooting. I have little reason to go higher or lower than 20-30.

    Voted for 20's, they're just easier to carry.

    My preference is the unlimited magazine they get to use in the Rambo movies! I'd love to have just 1 of those, the size of a 20 round mag. but it never runs out!! :D

    I like 30s because they hold 50% more than the 20s.

    30 rounders are primary mags i have a mix most around 60 of em are various milsup 20 are a mix of cammenga easy mag and pmag. i have a handful of twenty rounders i like em for the classic look nd for keeping one in the back pocket they are colts. i have one 5 rounder for hunting in texas. currently there is no mag limit a few years ago it was 5 round limit.

    ive got a total of about 100 AR15 mags.
