World’s largest firearms supplier sells 3.5 years worth of high capacity magazines in 72 hours
The world’s largest supplier of firearms, brownells.com, said that it had experienced ‘unprecedented’ demand for high capacity AR-15 ammunition magazines after the Newton shooting and subsequent “threat” of potential ban.
To shed some more light on the magazine situation at present, it really has been unprecedented in the last 5 days,’ he continued. ‘[W]e sold the ‘average demand’ equivalent of about 3 1/2 years worth of PMAGS, and and an even greater amount of our Brownells magazines. We’re working like crazy to get these orders to you as quickly as possible.’
Corpus later corrected his statement to clarify that the 3.5 years worth of magazines had actually been sold in 72 hours — or three days — instead of five days.
Stockpiling weapons, ammo, and magazines ahead of a potential ban is a GREAT idea. I haven’t regretted for a single second my personal stockpile of asbestos, lead-based paint, and lawn darts.
