Its sad when the price of the ammo exceeds the price of the mag by double.  Thats what it is with 223/556 and pmags right now.
I always break all the clay pigeons,  some times its even with lead.

Hell, Rastus's .22 LR cost more than a couple of the guns.

Yeah...I paid like $350-375 for 10k rounds of 22LR back in Dec. 2019.  I'll sell it for $20k...heck, I'll go $15k for 10,000 rounds.  For $17.5k I'll drive over and deliver it where it's legal.  It's still in the boxes of 5,000.  I need to pay for a new heating and cooling unit and some tile in the new place.

Buy precious metals they said,
They can only go up they said,
Then they F'ed  it all up by going with Gold and Silver instead of Lead, Brass and Aluminum   ;D

Got a notice form a local area shop today saying they got two pallets of steel-cased Tula in .223 and 7.62x39.
The .223 is $10 a box (.50 cents per round) with a five box per customer limit and the 7.62 stuff is $20 per 40rd box with a two box per customer limit.

The shop is about forty miles away in the middle of a little crossroads town and a couple weeks ago someone posted a video showing folks lined up nearly a 1/8 mile down the street because only five people at a time can go in (three hour wait to get in). No way in hades my back would ever hold up that long.

Call them up.
They may be able to do something.
Delivery, skip the line, something.
If you get to skip the line you might not want your prosthesis, jumped conclusions and all.   ;D

They are such a small family shop and so busy that actually getting through by phone is nothing short of miraculous.

Your last line made me think of this guy....funny I just saw it yesterday.  ;D ;D

Speaking  of that. My mom gets hers today at 1.   She had 2 prototypes.   The guy that built it has come to her house 4 times  now.   It cracks me up, he says your insurance/ Medicare  pays for X, but we know they don't last that long so hers x+ 1 or 2.

Like suspesion sleeves. They pay before 2.  He said most people get 3-6 months with them.  Here is 4, if you need a 5th just call.  We don't ever want some one to not have something.   The misses use to work at shriners sacramento.  Turns out she knows the guy, he  made all the really exotic  stuff for the kids there. 


I have no complaints
I always break all the clay pigeons,  some times its even with lead.

Its funny how  small the world is some times.  She did not remember  the name until she saw his face.  I talked to him on the phone a bit and he remembered  the misses.  Kind of hard not too.  Not too many tall redheads that are docs ;D

Some days I wonder why the hell she said yes.  It certainly wasn't for my looks, money or personality.  I am ugly, was in the hole almost 1 mill when we met and I am a jerk.
