Blog Post: AR Mags are disappearing
I just did a quick survey of a few of my favorite online etailers and found ZERO AR magazines were in stock. Brownells, Midway, Cabelas, Rainier Arms… All are out of 30 round AR magazines. In fact, it looks like they have run dry on nearly every variant of AR magazine.
I’m not shocked. It’s a small sample set to draw a conclusion from, but it seems that the Panic has really taken hold.
Here’s an update after talking a bit with local shops here in northern Virginia today:
Jimmy from F3 Tactical reports: “Rob it’s been absolutely crazy! We went black on PMAGS around noon on Tuesday, and as of last night sold all of the other mags we have in stock. I still have a stash we are saving for the guy’s who are deploying, cops, contractors etc. but we’re not even selling those, just giving them away as needed.”
“The problems are reaching beyond the shops, our biggest distributor is going off line during the day because of the high volume of ordering. I sneak in around 2am to see if anything is available…..and of course nothing is.”
“This is the worse panic buying I’ve ever seen.”
