    Firearms Supplier Sells More Than Three Years Worth Of Magazines In Just Three Days


    Brownells, the world's largest supplier of firearms, has reportedly sold three-and-a-half years worth of magazines in just seventy-two hours.


    Brownells CEO said:


    "I wanted to take a minute to shed some insight on the magazine situation if I can. First of all I wanted to offer an apology for the situation... with magazines being 'In-Stock' and back-ordered moments later... [The] demand for magazines actually exceeded the ability for the system to keep up with the volume that was being ordered."


    "To shed some more light on the magazine situation at present, it really has been unprecedented in the last 5 days. During a roughly 72 hour period...we sold the 'average demand' equivalent of about 3.5 years worth of PMAGS, and an even greater amount of our Brownells magazines."


    When I visited Brownells online, I was met with a disclaimer at the top of the website that read:


    PLEASE NOTE: Due to Extreme Volumes, and Winter Storms, Order Shipment May Be Delayed. Thank You For Your Patience.


    A blog on Military Times had a similar report: "AR magazines are disappearing."


    The post read:


    "I just did a quick survey of a few of my favorite online retailers and found ZERO AR magazines were in stock. Brownells, Midway, Cabelas, Rainier Arms... All are out of 30 round AR magazines. In fact, it looks like they have run dry on nearly every variant of AR magazine.


    I'm not shocked. It's a small sample set to draw a conclusion from, but it seems that the Panic has really taken hold."


    My advice to you liberty lovers: Get 'em before they're gone!

    I was talking to my son who in in the Army, when he was at Ft Sill about 5 years ago they were throwing away 30 round mags for 15's he asked me if I wanted any I told him sure but had forgotten about them the other night I was talking to he and asked if he got any he said he got a case of 100

    I told him he better hang on to them might be selling for a hefty price shortly

    Interesting, esp since Brownells doesn't even sell one complete firearm, only firearm components (yea, you could build a complete gun buying components only from Brownells, but they don't sell even a single completely assembled and ready to roll gun). Not exactly what I would call a "supplier of firearms".

    Couldn't happen to a better company BTW, every dealing I've ever had with Brownells has been first class, I wish them only the best. They are my go-to retailer unless someone else has what I'm looking for significantly cheaper.
