A local store has a bunch of $35 G19 15 round mags. Seems a bit high. Would you grab one in the current climate or wait until the prices come back down, if so?

How many magazines do you have? If you are comfortable where you are for a few more months you will see about a 10 dollar drop to normal. Up to you.

I bought a few mags during this panic and the most I paid was $28.

In comparison to mags for other brands of guns, even at current prices, Glock mags are still relatively inexpensive.

Prices on them are already starting to come down and they will only get cheaper once the dust settles from all the current crap.

If you really want or need Glock mags right now, I wouldn't lose any sleep or give it a second thought about paying $35 for a mag.

Get them while you can.

I'm buying magazines for glocks I don't own yet.

Panic buying is for panicky people.

Prices may drop making that price high. Prices may rise making that price low. That's the game.

In ten years you'll be happy you bought them and won't care what you paid.

I wish I had bought more than six mags for my P99.

I would buy as many as I could if I could find any. I only have 1

Magazines are worth what people are willing to pay for them. It is called capitalism, if nobody buys them at $35 then the price will drop. Are you willing to take that risk?

I don't own a Glock (yet) so I don't know what the mags normally cost because I've never actually priced them. I do however have 2 Springfield XD's and an XDs and that's the average price for mags for them before this panic hit, at least around here.

If you need more now, I wouldn't hesitate to pay $35 locally. While it's above average for price, it certainly isn't gouging. I certainly wouldn't lose sleep if the price came down and I realized I overpaid by $10.

It is only $5-$10 more than normal prices. I don't think a ban will pass, but I am smart enough to look at that $5 as cheap insurance against a possible ban.
