Heh heh heh.
I hear you. A friend of mine went out and bought a new Springfield M1A and it only came with one 5 round magazine. I loaned him two 20 round Checkmate magazines until he could grab some. I have not talked to him for a while so I don't know if he was able to get some or not.
I think it will settle down but I don't think it will be soon.
I need to get some more for my LR308 but can't find those either.
It is a work in progress. . .
