    Palmetto State Armory actually has a good selection of 30 rd AR mags on their site this morning....some are 15-16.99, a couple others are 24.99. They are on the front page in the 'featured products'.

    So I'm toying with the idea of getting a .40 and am wondering what some of the option other than the usual semiautos are.:ear

    Steyr M series pistols were originally designed for the .40 cartridge.

    I got quite fond of the Ruger SR series in various formats. The SR40 (.40 S&W) comes in standard size (G17 size) and compact. Nice slim pistol with up to 15 rounds. I had a SR40c and had no issues with it. Changed it for a SR9 which is more suited for my type of shooting.

    Anything in .40 is a good choice. I'm a recent convert, and have found it to be a great round. I wish i had converted a long time ago.

    I have to admit that I like my FNS-40 a lot, but right now I shoot better with the Hi Power for some reason. It's probably me, the .40 is not so much more powerful that it induces flinching.

    The .40 can still double stack which means more than 7 shots per magazine, I think that is a bonus.

    Also, .40 ammo seems to be easier to find in the current moment of the ammo drought - I've not seen 9MM for weeks, bought .40 yesterday.

    I suspect it's going to continue to be a popular choice in the future.

    If you are in CO, I know a guy with a bunch of Beretta .40's on his sales shelf.

    I have only one word to describe the past two days: winning!

    - I confirmed shipment of a Windham AR ahead of schedule.

    - I found .38 and 9mm at pre- apocalypse prices at a chance stop while waiting on the tailor to finish altering a uniform.

    - I got a call from my favorite gun store (Ed's Gun Shop, Vass, NC) to tell me they had a Kel-Tec KSG with my name on it...BELOW MSRP! :D

    And to think I was about to buy my wife a CRF230L. I guess she'll have to wait. :rolleyes:

    With the economy and--hopefully--the failure of the ABW2 will result in a glut of arms. But then again, I've been hoping for that since 2007. :eek1

    Hopefully I get the same confirmation soon :D I didn't buy a complete rifle, though, just a full M4 upper. I'm sitting @ about 65 days for my order.

    MrsDonkeys loves it! She has proclaimed it to be her snuggle buddy when I'm overseas.

    news flash........went to go see if the local ammo shop had any pistol ammo and they had all calibers in stock!!!!

    The crazy part is that I bought a bunch of boxes of 10mm because it was cheaper than 9mm, same prices as .40, cheaper than .45, and same price as .380 :eek1

    So.... What's it worth?

    Remington 700 in 25-06 topped with a Bushnell Elite 3x9. Seller says he thinks it's 8 y/o and knows it's never been fired.

    Bass Pro Shops is listing the glass at either $280 or $360 depending on specs.

    Having a hard time pricing the gun. Too many different 700 options to be clear.

    $650.00 its still a used gun, it's somewhat of an oddball caliber, scopes and slings are like farkles on a bike. When he tells you the scope is worth 300 tell him to keep it and offer $350.00 for the rifle if you want a 25-06.
