I said hivemind

Anyway, My Current build will be done within about 2 weeks, and it's the first AR I've ever had. Yes I know I have an awful lot of damn posts to be just now getting my first AR shut up. Anyway. It's gonna be the flattop carbine I've been yelling about forever. Here is the question. I know to just get USGI mags, but how many? Whats the proper amount of loaded mags to have for each AR?

Didn't we just do this?...

FWIW (as I posted in the other thread), once you get beyond a certain number of rifles and arbitrary "Minimun # per rifle" doesn't really make much sense IMHO. If I only had 1 or 2 ARs, I wouldn't be comfortable with less than 10 per AR... I really don't think I need 10 per rifle at this point (althopugh I'm probably not far off that mark anyway ).

As many as you can afford. Mags wear out or may be banned. Stock up and buy in bulk.

I say 6-10 mags per rifle. How much ammo can you carry?
All your spare ammo should be on stipper clips so the women folk can reload for ya.

Before I was infected with BRD a former (chick) roommates husband (deployed) left about 40 30 round USGI mags at the house, when she moved out, she gave em to me. I gave them to a friend who promptly got them confiscated

This was back in 99. I was 18 or so. Illegal M-16. NOT a modified AR-15. An Actual M-16A1. He got all his stuff taken and some how got away with fines and probation. Didn't have to spend a day in club fed. Few days in county though.

The mystery deepens...

I voted 11-15, as a minimum per AR, that's a basic load with some spairs. But it's always good to have more.
Link Posted: 2/8/2006 4:01:21 PM EDT
AR15,hence: ANSWER,RIGHT-15.So,15 mags,minimum.More if you're left handed.Or from Arkansas.

From the DOJ
Possession of a Machine Gun 10 years, $250,000 fine

He was probably high.

Mags are a safe investment if you don't mind having your money tied up for a while. Mark my words, the Ban WILL be back and without a sunset next time.

SHUDDUP! I'm kinda scared enough as it is with the world sit rep.
Link Posted: 2/9/2006 12:38:45 PM EDT
Are you talking about how many mags to buy, or how many to keep loaded?

I generally load whatever I'm planning to take to the range, plus one or two in the safe just in case.

Personally, I'm working towards a goal of having 1000 rounds in magazines. I order 1000 rds at a time as it is, and it would be nice to have it all in magazines. So, I need about 33 30 rounders. I think I have 6 at the moment.

Loaded magazines not under your direct control in MA are considered the same as leaving a gun loaded and unlocked, ie, ticket to jail. :/

I used to load mags to take to the range but I typically don't shoot full mags. I load my chest rig down with 6 rounders and double tap 3 targets from different possitions reloading in between. Or we shoot drills where we have a specific number of rounds and one dummy between two magazines so we don't know when to clear or reload. Stuff like that

I keep two magazines loaded one in the gun and one in a butstock pouch.
