    Mag whore picture thread.

    Theres plenty of gun picture threads but not many magazine picture threads.

    Heres your chance to post some AK magazine porn.

    This is probably going to sound stupid but why do you have so many?I have 11 and they are all loaded so I think that is plenty.Do you have enough ammo to fill all those?:supergrin:

    Collecting is a degenerate flu-like sickness/addiction.
    Ask CarlosC if he has found a cure yet?

    Yes, I got plenty of ammo to do that.

    I have ten 30's and one drum which is more then I can carry so I think it's plenty. If I need more than 375 rounds without reloading a mag then I'm screwed.

    Collecting guns is an addiction and one that I have recognized. That's the first step...right? That's where I terminated my 12-step program because I learned to accept my addiction and live with it. It's difficult, but I can handle it.

    Now this may come as a surprise to you guys, but I don't really have a lot of magazines. I have a spreadsheet somewhere that I use to keep track of them, but I think it is outdated. At some point, I had to make up my mind on how many mags was good enough for each gun I own. Most of my pistols have 5 or 6 magazines, except the single stacks where I only have 2 or 3 each. I have 5 or more magazines for most of my rifles except my Enfields, which only have one each, but they're actually supposed to be stripper clip fed into the magazines. I am guessing I have maybe 10 guns that don't use magazines, so figure the other 38 have maybe 5 average, so that works out to about 190 magazines. It seems like a lot, but not when you space them out per gun.

    It's too much work to go arranging all those magazines!

    general rule of thumb is eastern bloc is best...skip any and all us made ak mags

    bulgarian polymer waffle mags are generally thought to be the best
