Having a little buyer's remorse right now.

Went to the Fun Show today and bought a few HK mags including two HK P9S .45 mags. I don't own a P9S in 45, but would like to someday.

I have an FAL mag. I don't remember when I got it -- must have been when I was a kid.

I had AR mags long before I had an AR.

Never.........Why would you want a bunch of mags that you have no use for? My money is better spent on more mags for the firearms I do own.
Same goes for ammo. Unless you are a collector, wouldn't you want more ammo for the guns you have, rather than a bunch of ammo you can't do anything with?

No, but I've thought about it to serve as motivation to buy what I want.

I bought 2 XD40 mags and 200 rnds. of ammo today 3 hrs. before I bought the gun if that counts

I recently bought 10 Uzi mags though I don't own an uzi.


I do however own a 9mm AR that uses modified uzi mags. I'll have a friend convert them.

Remember the Johnny Cash tune...

"I got it one piece at a time
And it didn't cost me a dime"

I found myself slowly accumulating otherwise junk that will become useful someday. It's cheaper to buy little stuff first...

Don't feel bad. You can always sell them.

No, I spend enough money buying mags for the ones I do own.
4 of any mag is enough. Well, maybe it should be 6. OK, 10 and thats final. For now.

Done it several times. I had a bunch of AR15 mags before I got the rifle. Same goes for Glock 20 and 21 mags. Sometimes you just can't resist a good price.

I have thought about that in the same way before but have never done it.

yea I bought two brand new high power 40cal mags, not the 10rds either and I think it cost a little over eighty bucks after tax, they were a gift to my father

Me too.

I bought a whole bunch of 1911 mags long before I owned any of my 1911s, just because knew without a doubt that I would eventually be getting one.

I hoarded .308 Galil mags for a while, until I realized that at $100 each I could buy an LE6920 if I sold them.

I have a big box full of HK G3 mags, and the only HK I own is a USP pistol. I do plan to buy an HK51 some day though..

Never done it with mags, but I have done it with holsters. More than once. Then had to buy the gun to fit the holster. And then buy more holsters for the gun.....

Its a sickness.
