    When the craziness subsides that is. I was planning on making an educated purchase, and purchasing the best AR 10 I could get for my money, before I was so brashly interrupted, by the entire mass panic buys, and crazy demand that helped make the outlandish prices from some retailers and individuals :what: So maybe if the buying spree will die down I'll go back to trying to find a .308 semi of a sort, and a "retro" AR-15, if possible. Also I'm beginning to make a dent in my 22lr stash and feel like I could stand to replenish it in the coming months. I was curious as to what you other highroaders were interested in purchasing when/if things level out back to the norm. Pmags may be a precious commodity for a bit longer than I thought, still I'm not going to purchase any for the going rate. I hope they can get their tooling up and running in a timely manner, stateside, and get fresh mags in the market, for the right price.

    Buying mags now as I have less than 3 1/2 months to do so before the ban is in effect.

    Honestly, other than picking up a few more mags when the prices are right, I'm pretty well set as far as semiautos go. My current wish list consists mainly of revolvers and bolt actions rifles. And of course several thousand rounds of ammo, I don't want to get caught like this again. :rolleyes:

    If prices go back to normal(ish): Ammo and mags. I've also had my eye on the Kahr CM9, a .357 levergun, Mossberg MVP, M&P9, M1 Carbine, SKS, 20" AR upper, .22 AR upper, Sig Sauer 1911 Scorpion, etc. Also gear like holsters, lights, grips, slings, sights, etc. Crap, too many things on my list.

    I've always been fine with my stock of mags. However, the new legislation that was signed here changed everything. I realized that my kids should have magazines of their own for when they become gun owners.

    So I went from 22 mags in December to now having 153 as of today, and possibly more to come between now and July 1st. Goes to show you have well a mag ban works!

    Doesn't the new CO law make it a felony to transfer magazines? To be legal you have to maintain continuous possession. Your kids may be SOL unless they move out of state.

    It is not a felony.

    It is a misdemeanor... only if done after July 1st.

    The transfers have already taken place.

    Ammo. I am not a big range guy. In fact, other than sighting in my deer rifle, shooting a deer, and an occassional pistol magazine, I never shoot centerfire guns. I can get thru a year on less than 300 rounds of centerfire. So before I left Nevada for Texas me and a couple of buddies went out and shot off all of my ammo except for one mag for my glock. I was moving into a hotel, then corporate apartment, then house. Less **** to carry and I could just buy more. Well because I dont shoot a lot the whole buying more thing never really happened. When the ammo shortage hit, I had less than 200 rounds total, including rimfire. I had that glock mag, 50 38sp, a box of 20 .40cal for my Kahr, half a box of 6.5x55, and some bird shot for my 12 gauge. I have been, albeit very slowly, restocking every since. I did buy 500 7.62x39 right before the prices jumped. But I still would have a short session at the range. So my focus will be ammo.

    My latest 'gun money' purchase was spent on a Life membership to the NRA. As much as i look forward to buying new guns, I really want to keep the ones I already have.

    Life membership is a reduced rate right now.

    ammo, 22LR particularly will be on my list. This time I will do the "brick" a month routine or thereabouts.
    M1-Garande (for shooting, not showing) is and has been on my list for a while.
    And a .17 HMR revolver.
    powder, primers, bullets.

    I'd tell you, but I don't want to start ANOTHER panic!!!!

    It's wise to start laying in long-term food, water, and other essentials BEFORE those follow the same pattern as guns and ammo.
