The only thing I bought today, other than lunch, was some AR type magazines. They would have likely been bought during the coming year so I just expedited things a little. :)


December 18, 2012, 11:26 AM
Nothing yet, but I was going to go milsurp hunting today.

December 18, 2012, 11:33 AM
Most likely selling my SKS to a friend but I will be at the gun shop or on here looking for a replacement. I need to buy some more ammo soon for all my guns since I'm running low... I've been lazy about that. I have some just in case something happens on the 21st though! :)

Fifteen 30 round AR mags.

Looking for a couple stripped lower receivers if I could just find any :cuss:

December 18, 2012, 01:47 PM
(2) 5 Round AR Magazines - Not a panic buy obviously... Looking forward to some night coyote hunting and we have a five round magazine limit when hunting in Maine.

December 18, 2012, 01:49 PM
Box of Federal 180grn .30-06 and a box of Federal Automatch .22LR.

Might buy a new scope or a red dot mount for my AK later.

December 18, 2012, 02:00 PM
Nothing gun related. My last such "purchase" was a box of Hornady bullets (rebate from buying a set of dies) ten days ago, before Sandy Hook.

[Is that going to become a new way of recording history -- BC, AD, SH?]

My most likely next purchase will be another hi-capacity .40 cal pistol, quite likely a Glock 27, but I don't buy the impending gun ban hype so I'm in no hurry.

December 18, 2012, 02:02 PM
I just purchased 3 11-round Mec-Gar magazines for my Marlin Camp 45. I was going to get 2 "sometime" but I jumped off the fence.

December 18, 2012, 02:15 PM
A couple AR mags--already have a few-now I have a couple more.

December 18, 2012, 02:52 PM
Ten PMags yesterday and four 22 round G35 mags this morning.

December 18, 2012, 03:59 PM
Not today but yesterday.
I ordered 10 magazines for my Mini-14 & AR. All 30 rd.


December 18, 2012, 04:22 PM
I was going to get some mecgar CZ 75 17rd AFC mags for the cz shadow target that I am getting but apparently the panic buyers beat me to it.

Not today but last Friday I bought a Sig Sauer 1911 22LR.

December 18, 2012, 04:27 PM
Bought a Magpul AFG2 on Sunday, but I have no need or desire to engage in the panic buying of rifles, magazines and ammo. I've spent years accumulating what I want so that I would not fall victim to the environment and pricing of the panic if it ever came to fruition. In retrospect, I definitely made the right decision.

December 18, 2012, 04:51 PM
I got myself some 30 rounds pmags...:(

December 18, 2012, 04:59 PM
Nope, have everything I want....and don't need anything.../ but I visited 2 gun shops in my area today - just as cheap entertainment - as the feeding frenzy begins...:(

December 18, 2012, 05:24 PM
60 round Surefire AR mags.

December 18, 2012, 05:45 PM
60 round Surefire AR mags.

Those were too expensive before the panic, IMO. I'd like to have a couple, but not at $100/ea when I can (or could) buy a pair of PMags30s and a Maglink for $40.

I have one Beta C 100 rounder. It's fun, runs fine, but it was $250. At that price, one is all I want.

December 18, 2012, 05:54 PM
My 7" AR upper. It was only a matter of time, already had the lower. I wonder if I will still be able to get a tax stamp for a SBR when the dust settles. Also, some 30 round P-Mags.

December 18, 2012, 05:57 PM
290 bucks worth of groceries...

oh wait!

thats not what you wanted..

I expect so. NFA stuff is not on the anti's radar; Other than the Hughes amendment, it hasn't been screwed with since it became law.

Having said that, I hope you're building on a virgin receiver and are able to configure it as a pistol for now, or have a pistol lower already that it can go on. Constructive possession is a bit different with SBR than machine gun, but I still don't think I'd want to be caught with a pistol/SBR upper and no pistol or registered SBR lower to put it on.

December 18, 2012, 11:23 PM
added another ar15 today. got me a stag model 7, cant wait to get loading for it!!!

December 18, 2012, 11:33 PM
I was about to say I didn't get jack today, but I did pick up a 100 pack of 38 special. Already had a small order with Midway last Friday anyway guess I should have beefed it up some.

December 18, 2012, 11:34 PM
I'll add another box of .30-06 to the stuff I bought.....

I ended up having to go back into WalMart, so I bought another box.

December 18, 2012, 11:40 PM
today i bought my first ar15 it is a dpms a-15 a3 l16 it was actually one of the last ones i could find. another store had a bushmaster but the dpms was a little cheaper which helped me so i also got 5 30rd pmags and 450 rounds of ammo and a rock river arms carry handle.

i also picked up a ruger gunsite scout in 308 and some ammo for it. also got a couple of gun bags to keep it all together . now i cant wait to get out and shoot them

December 18, 2012, 11:51 PM
I picked up a Glock 17 and a 20 inch AR upper. I had been planning to get both, but my plans got sped up... I also got 4, 20 round pmags (my favorite size) and 3 extra Glock mags.

December 19, 2012, 01:16 AM
I work at a gun shop and the first thing I did today when I got to work is take a PTR-91 off the rack and I also grabbed an FNX-45. I'm glad I did because over the course of the day we basically sold out of every black rifle we had left in the shop. We ended up getting five Sig 516's delivered this morning and all were sold within hours.

All of our distributors are complete out of inventory on just about everything semi-auto at the moment from handguns to rifles. After this week we are going to have hardly anything left to sell other than bolt and lever action rifles, shotguns, 22's and revolvers.

December 19, 2012, 02:06 AM
Just ordered:

25 rounds of 00 buckshot
100 rounds of 7.62x54r
500 rounds of 9mm
500 rounds of 7.62x39

Needed to order ammo anyway. The whole situation that is going on now just gave me the push to finally stop being lazy and order some more. Nothing too crazy but it should me enough for now

December 19, 2012, 04:12 PM
I just bought some magpul furniture in fde im excited about.

December 19, 2012, 04:49 PM
SR556E (my first AR). Last one they had NIB. Today went back to see if their ammo shipment arrived and found out the supplier sold the allotment out from under the LGS. Owner was PO'd. Also, all AR's wiped out.

So, new rifle and so far no ammo.

Yesterday I picked up another Ruger SR22. It was planned well before this mess started. My neighbor who is also my local FFL has been holding it for mefor the past couple of weeks. Night before last my wife told me to get my butt over there and pick it up before it's too late. :D

December 19, 2012, 04:59 PM
I'm not worried about next year but i might be worried about after 2014 and the next election cycle if the R's lose the House. I would get what i wanted over this next two years. It will then be Barrack's last two years and he will not care what gun owners he alienates because he won't be up for election just like now.

I'm hoping to pick up a stripped AR lower over the next couple of years and AR and AK magazines, even if i don't have a gun for them.

December 19, 2012, 05:21 PM
I bought a 6 shot 357 Magnum Assault Revolver.

I want a smith MP T or TS so bad. I plan to buy one when company bonuses comes out in March. Just can't afford it right now. I hope this calms down. Gunbroker had the gun I wanted for $1000 2 weeks ago.......checked today and now it was $1600.

December 19, 2012, 05:49 PM
Saw the new factory 25 rnd magazines for a Ruger 10/22 onsale today so ordered a few.

December 19, 2012, 05:49 PM
6 30 round p mags, a 33 round glock mag. 1000 spp, 1000 srp.

December 19, 2012, 05:52 PM
2 AR 30 round mags and 200 rounds of ammo. I would love to buys tons but I would rather buy my kids presents!

December 19, 2012, 05:54 PM
I put four Glock 15 round G20 magazines in my cart at MidwayUSA and it only added two. I think I got the last two they had.

December 19, 2012, 05:59 PM
I got me a nice little Remington R-15, but in my defense, I have been pricing this gun for a couple months, just now came up with the dough. Now If I could just find a damn mag for it.

December 19, 2012, 09:44 PM
sig sp2022 nite sites threaded barrel from buds should be here on friday

December 19, 2012, 09:55 PM
I picked up some .223 ammo yesterday. I wasn't even at the store for that purpose but I saw it on the shelf and said "what the heck, why not?"

I had a gift card for Amazon and I thought about getting a few more pmags. Then I went on their site and found that they removed any pmag above 10 rounds. :(

Finally ordered a Butler creek Folding stock for my mini-14. Bought it in 95 thinking that was the end. Bought some 223 and misc ammo at Walmart this morning.

Meh. I shoot a lot. It'll get used.

Four of the five guns I listed were for Christmas presents. The only one I'm keeping is the 357 revolver. :)
