Default Anyone else already second guessing decisions?

This is not a humble or any other kind of brag.

Its an introspection for people younger than me while there is still time to buy MORE.

Im old as eff. I was fortunate enough to have had money and a wife that understood my position in the 1990s.

Consequently, when the first rumblings of statewide bans kicked in, i bought some stuff. Then, i bought mags for stuff i didnt even own. I bought 10 mags for every platform i thought i was likely to buy. So my AR mags sre old school aluminum 30 rounders. I baby them, and have a few Orlites for banging around.

When this very fortunate event happened, my first reaction was “GLOCK 19 and 33 rounders!!!” because i carry that one, and my old as eff 15 rounders are gen 1 non drop free mags, requiring an extra reload step.

Had to catch as catch can, ordering what i could find where i could get it, but i got 5 15s and 10 33s, but i split those with a buddy.

Then i thought, wait, that 10/22 that i tricked out could always use some non 10 rounders, couldnt it?

It could.

Then, when the shoe dropped and the window stopped closing, i decided that even though i paid a premium for a C Mag right before the ban, then sold it later just because it was simultaneously worth so much yet so fragile and useless, i let it go, that i needed a dedicated “eff you, Becerra, suck on this” magazine, and ordered a pmag drum. From botach, of all clip joints. Oh, well, it shipped today.

So now in that few hours before the window closes, i find myself wondering if i should/should have ordered some AR mags just so i have spares?

Young guys: forever is a long long time. Mags get dropped, stepped on, run over. Lost. Or worse yet, pampered and babied and eventually left in the safe.

Buy everything you need, will need, and then some.

Because right now, you can! Go forth gents.

Short answer, No!
Longer answer, No!

Thank you for your post, story, and perspective.

I definitely bought more than I "need" (whatever that means), but I just wanted to support the movement and vote with my wallet.
Million Mag March FTW!

No...."a few" is fine.

I'm an expert shooter, so anything that holds more than 1 round is superfluous as it is...well, OK, 2 rounds, just in case there are multiple attackers

After shooting any standard cap mags "a little" to verify function....and gloat in Becerra's face.... I'll likely still shoot my 10-rd. mags at the range. Ten rounds through the same hole gets boring as it is....17 just makes the hole even bigger and the final 6 touch nothing but air

Unless there's basically a war/invasion/major civil unrest, not much will change for me....mine is just for home defense.

I only really needed a few too, Already discovered an issue. Was Appendix carrying today with my new Standard Carry Mag and had two random women hitting on me.

Couldn't figure out why until I realized I was printing big time.


30 Rounders might have been a mistake.

I remember walking into Tradersports in San Leandro before the 10 round ban was about to be instituted and saw $60 for standard capacity magazines. $60 was $$$$ at that time.
So I left and said "nah, I don't need those"
For years I regretted not having stocked up when I had the chance. Back then the internet didn't allow us to mobilize as quickly and certainly didn't give the buyer the leverage we have now.

I am not going to make that same mistake twice. I certainly bought more than I would ever need, and like many here bought magazines for firearms I don't even own.

As someone who has lived elsewhere and tasted what it is like without restrictions I encouraged my sons and friends that they should take advantage of the situation and buy as much as they could because in this case more IS better at a time like this.

Buy everything you need, will need, and then some.

Because right now, you can! Go forth gents.

First off, I don't think you qualify as an old fart, because then I am within a year or two of that, so let's say experienced enthusiast.

Second, I felt some little twinges considering how much freedom I bought, given that I really don't expect zombies showing up; Russians and Cubans parachuting down; nor a new civil war.

But I also took your earlier point that this is likely a last time buying opportunity unless a 50 year trend in gun control is truly being turned around.

I treated the BBAW ban in a similar, reckless manner and bought examples from all the major platforms I thought I would have a remote interest in (and relying on the working of the statue that once RAWs, I could take the BB off, time for another lawsuit for that wonderful judge).

So, I purchased a minimum number of SCMs for each platform. I went heavy on some of the rifle platforms, but things can happen so...

I will keep a couple examples of SCMs available for normal usage but will keep 10 rounders for regular practice, which will help with drilling on reloads.

For my critical home defense weapons, the SCMs will be ready to go. The rest will go into storage or at least a long cycle of rotation in the batting order.

With one or two exceptions, I purchased just the standard capacity for each platform. I did buy one little extravagance, for our CA AG , ylf, a 50 round drum for my PTR91

Nope, no need made any sense for SCM's for me. Saved the money and bought a couple things i don't have to be nervous about using in public and i am proud to own...a new Honda lawn mower and Stihl BR800 backpack blower.

Heres how goofy my problem is: when i got into ARs, the option was 20 or 30. I bought 30s, and a decent supply, and have used them ever since. Again, your options were USGI, Orlite, or generic crapazines.

When the ban kicked in, i didnt even buy 10 rounders for range use.

I started another thread because i know nothing about present production ar mags.

There were a few that I needed to fill in some gaps, and I picked up a D-50 just because, you know, F California haha!!

It was fun while it lasted...hopefully this will be just a temporary thing. Two weeks or so from what I’ve read, haha!!

Good luck to those still scrambling to get in before 5pm!! Buy a few more than you think you’ll need!!

You just caused a big spend..... I thought I was happy and content with most of what I already had and some new additions. Then I read this^. Then I saw the Botach D60, then I saw Brownells will honor back order purchased before 1700..... man, that was a blow.

Now I have a knot in my stomach because I don't like to spend that kind of money all willienillie, but, I had you on my other shoulder saying, "is this the last time it will be legal in California in your lifetime?"

Ugh.... Well. As much as it hurts, I also feel a ball of excitement to pick up a few things that I really didn't need, but may never have a chance to score in California again.

Buy everything you need, will need, and then some.

Because right now, you can! Go forth gents.
This is sound advice for non-Californians as well.

I live in Virginia. It's a free state (for now).

But after the 2019 state elections, who knows.

And, being in the 4th Circuit, where the Appellate Court already said it was constitutional ban standard capacity magazines, there is no hope for a Benitez miracle.

I for one am relieved the window is closing. My wallet just couldn't take anymore. I've placed orders every day for the last week. Started with mags I could use now and then went for mags for guns I wanted then started buying mags for guns I might want.

Haven't added up what I spent. Haven't checked on what's shipped or not. Just letting the cards fall where they may. One hellava week. I'm spent.

Not sure why you didn't rebuild your gen 1 glock mags with drop free bodies when rebuild kits were legal.

The bottom line it this C87, I was fine before this whole thing. I was s little less sure of a few legality things, but in terms of gear, I was fine. Nothing that happened in the last week changed my ability to fight of a threat one way or the other in all reality.

I didnt have a g 19 until last year. I had no idea there were generations of glock mags, because there werent when i bought them in the 1990s.

By the time i realized the issue, rebuild kits were verboten.

Its an introspection for people younger than me while there is still time to buy MORE.

Im old as eff. I was fortunate enough to have had money and a wife that understood my position in the 1990s.

Consequently, when the first rumblings of statewide bans kicked in, i bought some stuff. Then, i bought mags for stuff i didnt even own. I bought 10 mags for every platform i thought i was likely to buy. So my AR mags sre old school aluminum 30 rounders. I baby them, and have a few Orlites for banging around.

When this very fortunate event happened, my first reaction was “GLOCK 19 and 33 rounders!!!” because i carry that one, and my old as eff 15 rounders are gen 1 non drop free mags, requiring an extra reload step.

Had to catch as catch can, ordering what i could find where i could get it, but i got 5 15s and 10 33s, but i split those with a buddy.

Then i thought, wait, that 10/22 that i tricked out could always use some non 10 rounders, couldnt it?

It could.

Then, when the shoe dropped and the window stopped closing, i decided that even though i paid a premium for a C Mag right before the ban, then sold it later just because it was simultaneously worth so much yet so fragile and useless, i let it go, that i needed a dedicated “eff you, Becerra, suck on this” magazine, and ordered a pmag drum. From botach, of all clip joints. Oh, well, it shipped today.

So now in that few hours before the window closes, i find myself wondering if i should/should have ordered some AR mags just so i have spares?

You convinced me. I made a last minute purchase from Lanbo. I think I beat the deadline by like 2 minutes or something

Same here.

I said time after time "This is my last purchase." I had yesterday and today off which made it worse.

At 4:56 this afternoon I was trying to make another purchase and my CC was declined. (Fraud alert - I am surprised it took them this long!) Figured okay I'll save the money, but I pulled out another card and the transaction cleared before 5pm and I received my formal confirmation at 5:05.

I don't really want to know exactly how much I spent this week, but like you said it has been fun!

I am going to go through and figure out how many orders I made first, then tally what I ordered.... and wait till some later date to tally the dollars!

Well, I'll admit that I already blew my pay check then some!! But that's a small price to pay for a sense of freedom I haven't had since 90's, small price to pay therefore no regrets.

If the thought, "I may buy one some day," ever crossed your mind, now was the time to buy. Knowing how the judicial system in Commiefornia works, this will likely have been your one and only chance. I now have to buy a gun to fit some new mags, what a terrible position to be in

Ah makes sense. It might be for the better. You can probably fetch a pretty penny for those gen 1 mags by selling then to pre-ban states. Hopefully you stocked up on current gen g19 mags.
