What's the total capacity of all of your magazines?
« on: January 29, 2019, 06:41:01 PM »
Just curious, I have 38 magazines that hold a total of 477 rounds.  Is that in line with what you guys have?

In total of all guns of any caliber? Damn, I would have to count then multiply and then solve for X...well I’m not good at math.
"The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

I pretty much been stockpiling AR mags, Glock 33rds and other pistol mags that would be considered for a ban for years..

Enough that I'd be sure to under count on the first 5 or 6 tries.  I'll guess that I could match that round count before I finished tallying pistol round capacity.  While I was typing I confirmed 400 round capacity in 20 round 223/556/300BO mags; 8 rounds total in .308 and 42 rounds total in 12g.

This flip'n question is gonna make me gather and sort my mags 'cause it's interesting to consider how much many times I'd cycle them to burn through my ammo.

Same here. AR, 9mm carbine and hi cap pistol mags. Several for each and I'm not going to try and guess the count.

As I’ve said before about my ammo “stockpile”, my magazine “arsenal” would probably also ‘make the evening news’!   With them using just those terms.

An interesting question - however I haven't got a clue how many magazines I do have!  I have 4 plastic storage boxes full of magazines!  Probably the lion's share of them are 1911 magazines.

What's more important - is not how many guns or magazines you own - is how much ammo you have!

Reading these posts makes me glad to be a Texan, and to know that I’m not the only one with over a thousand rounds ready at a minute notice.

Like a 21st century minute men.

1-10k rounds might be “enough” for many of us, but I used to work with an engineer in AZ who had >100 weapons and apparently had “6 digits” of ammo.
