What a great OpEd

Obviously, a site like GunPundit is going to support Magpul’s decision to move out of Colorado after a law banning the sale or transfer of magazines holding more than 15 rounds was signed by the Governor last month. And poking fun at the idiots who passed such a law or those that support it is part and parcel to Murdoc’s role.

Even so, this opinion piece by Rick Tosches in the Denver Post seems, well, sort of deranged:
Tosches: Go ahead, Magpul. Move. Wyoming seems nice.

Is that what passes for an opinion in the Denver Post?

Magpul to Leave Colorado?

Good:

Apparently Gov Hickenlooper has announced that he will sign HB 1224 on Wednesday. We were asked for our reaction, and here is what we said:

We have said all along that based on the legal problems and uncertainties in the bill, as well as general principle, we will have no choice but to leave if the Governor signs this into law. We will start our transition out of the state almost immediately, and we will prioritize moving magazine manufacturing operations first. We expect the first PMAGs to be made outside CO within 30 days of the signing

CAA Three Window Magazine

Command Arms Accessories MAG3W Three Window Magazine
Command Arms Accessories MAG3W Three Window Magazine

Command Arms Accessories (CAA) / EMA Tactical is proud to introduce our new and innovative Three Window Magazine. The Three built in windows allows the operator to see how many rounds remain in the mag.

This three window system allows the operator to keep track of his remaining rounds and facilitates timely magazine changes without the operator losing his sight picture. Simply glancing down at the back of the magazine from his cheek weld shows the approximate number of rounds remaining.
When the magazine is full the operator will see the brass round casings in the top and middle windows. The (orange) follower will appear in the bottom window indicating a full magazine of 30 rounds.

As rounds are fired, the operator glances at the middle window. When the middle window is empty only 19 rounds remain in the magazine.

Then the operator glances at the top window. When the top window is empty only 11 rounds remain.

This three window system shows that when the middle window is empty the operator has 2/3rds or fewer of the rounds remaining and when the top window is empty only 1/3 of the rounds remain in the magazine.

Never Too Many Mags

You might be able to have more magazines than you can use, but you can never have too many.

Wednesday morning I noted that Brownells has 20 and 30-round AR mags on sale for $9.99. The previous night I had ordered myself a few more extras, and I wanted to make sure my order was in their system before you jackals readers ran them out of stock.

Ordered Tuesday evening after hours, delivered to Murdoc’s door Friday afternoon:

Brownells remains a top-notch source for gun parts and accessories. And the mags are still on sale and still in stock. Get ’em if you need ’em.
