Gun magazines (not the gun rag type)
Whew! Have you checked the prices for Glock magazines lately? I hadn't for a while, but I just checked only minutes ago and they look like they're headed for the moon, no doubt in speculation on the outcome of the presidential race (though I'm sure the Fed further cheapening the dollar hasn't helped). If you ever thought of getting another full capacity magazine for your Glock, you'd better do it ASAP.
Then again, maybe it won't be that bad. Part of me keeps thinking this is just marketing hype to raise prices. I keep hoping that the pending SCOTUS decision on the Heller case will throw a monkey wrench into the plans of the gun/magazine grabbers and it won't matter who gets into the White House because they'll be hamstrung by the high court's ruling. But only time will tell if that's mere wishful/fanciful thinking.
To paraphrase/co-opt a saying, real Americans already have their magazines. Of course, a few more couldn't hurt, could it? If you really are in need of more full-cap. magazines, be they for a Glock or any other type of firearm, you might want to at least consider springing for them soon. It's better to err on the side of caution than to cry later.
