Best Place to Buy Spare Pistol Magazines?
I'm assembling a go-bag and would really like to get 2-3 spare mags for my S&W M&P .40 duty weapon. I see some at Cheaperthandirt.com for $35, but they're 10rd magazines and I want nothing short of the standard duty 15rd mags. S&W's price on their website is even more expensive. Any clues as to where to look for spare mags at a good price? This will all be on MY dime and as such I don't exactly have loads of change rolling around under my car seats...

Hence your transaction is via yahoo's secure merchant cart and not taped together by bubba's cousin-the-IT-guy in the back room.
Another nice thing to see is their fed tax ID, GSA number, and all required address/phone info is displayed.

I've ordered from Botach numerous times, and they have great prices for great products.
I have heard people have had their orders bumbled, fumbled, and jumbled. I have not experienced this.J. Wise

I'd stay away from "Cheaper than Dirt"! In the past, they'd advertised products at great prices, then slammed me with excessively high shipping costs. My favorite is Top Gun Supply: http://www.topgunsupply.com/"I'm not fluent in the language of violence, but I know enough to get around in places where it's spoken."

The times I've ordered from Botach in the past has been hit or miss. Probably 4 times total and they screwed up at least 2 of the orders.
I'd prefer to pay more from a more reputable company than roll the dice with them again.

Since we are discussing pistol mags, what is the best brand of 1911 magazine for spare mags? I know Wilson Combat is usually the go to brand for aftermarket 1911 mags. I'm looking for other options that are easy to find.

I use WC 47D's, but others may swear by Cobra or Metalform. Basically, you should used whatever works in YOUR pistol with whatever ammo you're using. 1911's can be a bit persnickety when it comes to mags & ammo.
There are a couple 1911 forums you can surf through if you wanna.

I have ordered from them on 3 ocassions. On 2 I got what I ordered for a great price and in a timely manner. The last time I ordered, I never recieved the item. Took almost 3 months of leaving messages, dealing with the credit card company, etc before I got my money back. Never got my item, and never paced another order with them.Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.
