    About a year and 1/2 ago, I lost/misplaced an empty handgun bag with an empty magazine in it. Emptied out all of the closets, checked all the dressers, the garage, under the bed....everywhere, and it was not to be found. Monday I ordered 2 more magazines at a total of $57.00, due here tomorrow. I walked into the house a few minutes ago after a doctor's appointment, and what do you think was lying on the kitchen table?
    As I was filling out the order form, I said to myself "Watch. As soon as you order these, you'll find the bag with the spare in it".
    Flashlights, hunting knives, fillet knives, tools.....if you want them back, just go buy a new one.

    God we're such an upbeat crowd! The magazine is half full, not half empty.

    Actually, it's 4 mags. Oh well, it will cut down on range time spent reloading!

    4 mags sounds like a great place to start to me. 8 would be better, but 4 will get you out of trouble should the need arise. :D

    I was working the one I could find to death! It's an AMT .380 Backup single-action, and while a lot of them were produced, they quit making them quite a while ago and parts are hard to find. Dropped off my CCW application today, and out of all the small arms quals I had in the Navy, the only documentation I have is for the M2, but they accepted it. Like I'm going to conceal a .50 cal machine gun under a jacket........

    Well, you can't ever have too many mags, or ammo to fill them. Occasionally I misplace one of my 1911 mags but I usually find it within a couple of days. The last time I misplaced it, I found it under the seat in my truck. It had fell on the floor and settled in next to the mounting bolts for the passender seat.

    I have 4 mags for my 1911 and 6 for my AR (2 20's and 4 30's).

    Yep, happens al the time. I lost my M1991A1's recoil spring plunger once when stripping for cleaning - I saw it hit the wall right behind the TV! I could NOT find it after a lengthy search!
    So I order a new one - got it in a couple weeks later. Just for giggles I take one more look behind the TV - the danged thing is sitting right there! Sheesh....!

    This might not be a bad time to stock-up on mags. If BHO wins the election, you can bet another assault weapon ban will soon follow.
