  1. Non standard calibers by American standards. Yes the are available but normally only on line . Although some of your local gun stores / pawn shops might carry them.

  3. There some cool older guns I’d like to own just for novelty and fun purposes, but at this point in my life I have no interest in anything that isn’t a commonly used caliber weapon that I’d trust my life with, mostly things that share magazines. I’ve chosen the AR platform for my family in 556, (although I am building a BLK pistol for a truck gun, which obviously shares mags and most internals). And the glock 9mm family of handguns (with apologies to Kenny.....). The AR pattern is obvious. The glocks come in different sizes and have different back straps that can be made to be shot comfortably by almost anyone. And while obviousLT small pistol mags won’t fit in full size guns, they’ll all hold 17 rounders. My 2 cents.


    Maybe one day sanity will return to the land, and I can get my hands on a few old relics that shoot rounds that are tough to find and serve mainly a novelty purpose, but until then it’s common caliber weapons and ammo to feed them. My 2 cents.

    1. this is why I'm not building a .300 blackout rifle. I want to be able to reach for a magazine, and not question what's in it. I shouldn't have to look.

      I have my M1A. my M1 Garand. and my AR. truth be told I'll probably reach for the Garand first...it's faster from unloaded to into action. and if I can't kill a bad guy with a .30-06, that's operator error not cartridge capacity.

    2. Or you can do like I do - Magpul 300 Blackout magazines, GI metal magazines for the 5.56.
      The 300 is my go-to house gun so there's no loaded 300 magazines in my gun room, no loaded 5.56 magazines in the bedroom.

      Magpul makes a magazine for the 300 that's beefed up on the inside and they have stippling on the outside for a different feel. I do have regular Magpul 5.56 magazines, so my 300 mags also have a tan stripe along the bottom for easy identification.

      The big killer right now for 300 Blackout is the availability and price of ammo. If you can find it, and that's a big if, it's running a little over a buck a round according to ammoseek.com. It was bad enough when the shit was running a little over 60 cents a round before the panic hit, but a buck a round now? Holy shit.

  6. 9 mil no longer exists. I just about pulled the trigger on a 9mil Commander sized gun. But there’s no 9 mil. However 45 acp is still available. So I’m getting the gun in 45z

  7. If you're going to drop $350-400 on a handgun for Boog purposes, you might as well buy something fresh from the factory. There are some inexpensive milsurp sides, but not the ones he shows. I recently picked up a Hungarian FEG .32 auto at Gander (yeah, of all places) for $200 plus tax. Ain't pretty but it shoots well.
