8 30's and 4 20's is a good figure per rifle.  Although I would like to have 10 & 6.

For my AR? Hmmmm.....Maybe 50 30's, most in new condition, and maybe 60 or more 20's.....never really counted them.... :)

Of 30 rounders I have (6) Thermolds (10) USGI and (1) Orlite.  Of 20 rounders I have (6) Colt factory.  That's 23 mags for my 2 AR's.  That's a good start, but I definitely need more.  I think 10-20 rounders and 10-30 rounders for each rifle is a good number.

I'm kind of low on ar mags.  I've only got 3-20's, 14-30's, 6-10's, and 2-5's.

Just off the top of my head, for the AR's I have about 12 Thermolds, 8 steel "range mags", maybe 20 USGI 30's NIW for the future, 15 USGI 30's in varying condition for daily use, 10 USGI 20's, 10 Bushy 10-rounders, and 5 Frakenmags for future target practice.

For the M1A maybe 4 10-rounders, 2 Chinese 20's, 15 NIW 20's (busted my bank), and a couple of Thermolds.

For the FAL, something like 40 NIW 20's, 2 20's for current range use, and 4 10-rounders.

Not to mention 40 additional mags for the Glocks and HK Mk.23 and USP's.

Obviously, I went on a shopping spree in 1999. My friends thought I was nuts, but I have mags now and they don't. In fact, the used USGI 30's I bought for $9 early in 1999 they paid $125 each in December 1999. Bans make gun stores rich.

How many is enough? Well grasshopper, as many as there are grains of sand on the beach.
Link Posted: 4/24/2001 10:42:51 AM EDT
I have one 10 round factory mag for my 10/22 and 2 speed loaders for my .38.

Mark IV, it's the honest to God truth my friend! This in the Bay Area, just a few days before the SB23 ban. These were beaten to hell, 50% USGI 30's. They were selling like hot cakes. God help my state!
Link Posted: 4/24/2001 10:54:29 AM EDT
i have a mag formula #M=L/MC.

this is number of mags= number of outspoken librals devided by capicity of magizenes.

round up


you have 200 outspoken anti freedom librals in your area. you want 30 rdrs. 200/30. this works out to seven mags. if you worried about extara shots, figure you want 2 extra shots per libral. just mult by 3

I think Imbrog|io has us all conned. He probably has a home arsenal. ;)
Link Posted: 4/24/2001 11:22:19 AM EDT
At minimum, a combat load of mags for each weapon. Plus spares to use during practice and plinking.
Link Posted: 4/24/2001 5:54:35 PM EDT
I would think a at least 15 GI 30rdrs per rifle.If you meet that it's time to get a BETA C

I'm Ross, and I'm a Magaholic.  

I will have to admit I buy mags when I find good deals.  It doesn't matter how many I already have.  It's an uncontrollable urge to search them out and aquire them.  I've tried to break the habit before, but I've alwasy been unsuccessful.  Just when I think I have it kicked, I'll spot an old USGI M-14 mag hidden in some shop for $9.95.  I just can't pass up a deal like that.  Wouldn't you pay $10 just to say you bought an M-14 mag at that price.  Heck I left the price tag on it just for bragging rights!  No it will never end.  I've accepted this now and mearly try to limit the amount of money I spend on mags.

Once you start down the road of buying mags, you'll be hooked.  My advice is to just go ahead and start a budget for them and that way at least you'll control the addiction.

i remember hearing the phrase, to much of a good thing is just enough. always liked that saying
Link Posted: 4/25/2001 7:18:50 AM EDT
Never too many. Remember an automatic rifle without a mag is just a single shot rifle. I have 16 20rd mags for my Armalite AR10A4 308,50 20rd mags adventureline GI, 25 30rd GI for my ColtSP1,Armalite M15A4, and Bushmaster Shorty AK. Still buying. JOIN THE NRA!
