How many magazines do you guys have and how many do you want to have?

I have about 10 colt steel magazines and 20 pmags that I ordered before Obama got elected. Now I have become the paranoid gun guy and I want to get more.

What about you guys? What is your magazine goal?

Only 10 per AR, so I either have too many AR's or not enough magazines, I haven't decided.

One rifle
16 USGI's(10 DSG/5 cprod/one NTHMG)
12 lancer L5s
12 Pmags(2 windowed/10 non)
7 BDM .22 mags, one grey/6 smoke.

All always loaded except one pmag I use to practice/display/demonstrate the rifle, and checking function with new ammo or teaching someone(loading 1/3/5 rounds etc).

Personally I just want 5-6 20 rounders and that should do it for me.

Only problem I have ever had is one of the DSG's bottom tabs broke off so its marked for range duty only, but has never had an issue even being stored loaded with 30.

45 and most are either Brownells with anti tilt followers or PMags.

I have some more on backorder from Brownells as I write this. It will probably be a while before I get them...

60+ I really don't know and don't feel like counting again.

I have 6 FDE Pmags eventually on the way from Bravo Co.(just ordered today) I've decided to try the FDE thing on one of my AR's, so I placed an order some other FDE stuff from Denny's Guns today also.

20 C-Products stainless steel 30rnd mags

15 Pmags, 30rnd, 10 black and 5 OD green

5 Lancer L5, 30 rnd

50 USGI/aluminum mags, 30 rnd - most are D&H, a couple are C-Products, the rest are NHMTG - all have Gen3 foliage green MagPul followers

10 various 20 rnd mags - C-Products, D&H, NHMTG - mostly D&H

16 - 30 round Grey Teflon DSG w/ Magpul follower
10 - 30 round Black Teflon D&H w/ Magpul follower
3 - 30 round Grey Aluminum C-Products w/ orange follower
3 - 20 round black PMAGs

As soon as the store I work at gets some 30 round black PMAGS in I'll buy about 10 of those. I also would kind of like to get a hold of a few black stainless C-Products mags too. Also, fairly soon I'll be ordering 5 or so mags for my dedicated .22 upper. I really don't feel like one can have too many, so I'm just buying them as I can.

I've never heard of a steel Colt magazine?

But to answer your question I think between 250 and 300 AR mags (60 of which are pmags)  20 each for Glock 17,19 Browning HP, and 1911.  60 M14, 100 FAL, 120 AK47 and 40 AK74, 80 M1 Carbine.  Lesser amounts for other guns but no fewer than 4 for each.

You have exactly 11 mags for 5.56 and 6 for 7.62.  

What do you think the AR-10 mags will cost a few years into a permanent Ban?

You need many more of both calibers.

Wouldn't hurt to pick up another 10 Glock mags either.  They were selling $20 preban Glock mags during the ban for over $100 each.

Hehehe, I'm probably around 100 or so of USGI. Assorted manufacturers, Okays & NHMTG's, Old Colt 20rders, Adventureline's, Center's, CProducts, D&H (Bravo Co too).

I have a baker's dozen of CProducts mags that I sent with my little brother when he left for Afghanistan with Magpul followers in them. Hopefully I'll be getting those back when he gets back.

I do have one Pmag. I might think about getting a couple more if they ever become readily available again

The trick isn't to buy 120 at one time. Buy 2 or 3 whenever you stumble upon some at a buyable price. In our political environment, maybe buy 4 or 5 when you can. After awhile, they add up. All my mags are the collection of the past 5 or 6 years of owning AR's. I don't think I've ever bought more than 10 mags at a time, and that was only twice. The rest of them were just baught here and there when they were found at a good price. Plus, it's easy to have even 1 mag thrown in when ordering parts.
