I have to say when I get good service I like to let my readers know and today is one of those days. As some of you may remember when going over my thoughts on the Smith & Wesson Vtac I said that I was disappointed with the fact there was only 2 mags in the package. I like to have a minimum of 5 for each gun I carry or train with. I usually keep two loaded with my carry ammo and the other three are my practice/range mags and since most advanced classes require a minimum of three I have two spares that don’t get abused too much to fill in if one goes down or breaks. So I hit the internet last week to find some more magazines to fill the gap S&W left me. In my searching I was starting to get really discouraged. Everyone was either $35+ or out of stock.

Finally I ran across Quantico Tactical and found their three pack deal and jumped all over it. These are factory magazines but instead of being in the fancy packaging they came in individual ziplock bags.

I was a little leery to place the order because I was having a hard time finding any reviews on Quantico Tactical or their bulk packaged magazines but I ended up ordering them on a Wednesday and had them in my hand on Monday.  We taught a Concealed Handgun class on Sunday. Valkyrie Defense always has one instructor shoot the course of fire alongside the students to build confidence with the students that the instructors can perform everything that the students are asked to do. I did the shooting portion with the students on Sunday and put the new mags to use. (I will post the picture of my target on the blog’s Facebook page tomorrow afternoon to show the progress I am making with adjusting to the Vtac also) All three ran without a problem through out all the drills. I will get them to the range one of these days and step the abuse up and see how they handle it but I am betting they will be fine. If I do find any problems I will be sure to let everyone know but I doubt any issues will arise since these are factory mags.

I will go on record and say if you want some good quick service and want to get a good deal on some M&P magazines (around $26) Quantico Tactical gets my stamp of approval.

From Magpul’s Facebook:

We are proud to announce that within a matter of days we will be going live with a new program. Due to a bill currently moving through the Colorado legislature, there is the possibility that Colorado residents’ ability to purchase standard capacity magazines will soon be infringed. Before that happens, and Magpul is forced to leave the state in order to keep to our principles, we will be doing our best to get standard capacity PMAGs into the hands of any Colorado resident that wants them.

Verified Colorado residents will be able to purchase up to ten (10) standard capacity AR/M4 magazines directly from Magpul, and will be given immediate flat-rate $5 shipping, bypassing our current order queue.

Our customers outside of Colorado, please know that our PMAG production will continue at an ever-increasing rate until we do relocate, shipments to our distributors in other states will continue, and that we do not expect relocation to significantly impact PMAG production. We are also aware that Colorado is not the only state with existing or pending magazine capacity restrictions; we are working on programs for other affected states as well.

Full details and instructions will be announced when we are able to go live; please watch here for the coming announcement.

I know that there is a few readers from Colorado so I urge you to take advantage of Magpul’s offer. Don’t forget your favorite blogger either I’m sure he could use one for a future giveaway…….. 🙂

Make sure you like us on Facebook and get us one step closer to someone winning a holster from NUoSU and a couple of paracord bracelets made by our friend Ryan Fickenworth.

If you haven’t heard the news David Gregory on Meet The Press waved around an empty 30 round magazine on national TV. Not a big deal right? Well it wouldn’t be if your filming studios weren’t in Washington DC where you have some of the strictest gun laws in the country.

Our staunch anti-gun advocate friend David violated one of the very laws he intends to push onto all of the rest of the nation and it is imperitive that he pays for his crime. He ABSOLUTELY needs to feel what it is like to be on receiving end of the ignorant laws he pushes so hard for. But will justice be served?

Of course NBC is coming out stating Mr Gregory has a get out of jail free card (literally) from the ATF but the DC police are possibly saying other wise. The article in Politico here tries to spell out the situation. The DC police say they have an investigation ongoing so I believe it’s safe assume if they haven’t charged him with anything yet it is unlikely anything will come out of it.
