Re: The Panic Buying Thread

I picked up 4 Glock Magpul mags with my discount at work. They feel kind of cheap compared to Glock OEM mags. They may be the last ones that I buy. Because of they feel "cheap"? Or actual usage? I'm interested as I need some more mags for my G17 and was looking at those. The Magpuls for m...
