I know many people are trying to buy extra magazines for their AR15-type rifles at present, but can't find them at reasonable prices. (For examples of price-gouging at its worst, see here and here - I captured those screen images five minutes ago. Those magazines sold for $15-$20 each prior to the current panic. Guess where I'll never be shopping again?)
One dealer has an interesting solution.
You can find out more details at the link. Basically, they're taking for themselves only $10 per magazine - about what the wholesale (distributor) price of a Magpul PMAG used to be, prior to the current panic. $35 isn't out of line with current retail prices, but a full 71% of it goes to a very worthy cause. I think that's a really good idea.
I already have enough magazines for my needs, but if you need a few, I think you could do a lot worse than patronize Quantico Tactical. Kudos to them for their generosity.
