Grrrr. Missing/Misplaced Magazines - UPDATE: Found 'em! Login/Join

I hate losing things. A year ago I moved into my new home and made the closet in my office space my "gun closet." So, today I thought I'd go to the range tomorrow and take a couple of my guns that I haven't used in a while.

My guns are in safes, so I have access to them all. However, I ran out of space for extra magazines. In my old house, I put the "spillover" mags into an NRA clock that has a "secret" storage area.

So today I pulled out my XD-s .45ACP and Tanfoglio 9mm. I collected all the mags for the XD-s, and then went to the clock to fetch the mags for the Tanfoglio. Empty.

I have three 13-round mags for this gun. One is in it, the others...? Gone too, are the mags for my S&W M&P9 C.O.R.E. three of those, too.

Now, I'm trying to retrace my steps as I moved in. I've pretty well checked all the rooms, so they're either in a box in the attic, or in the garage.

It looks like I'm going to be doing a lot of reloading next trip to the range. ARGH!

If this is the first time this has happened to you, it gets worse. It's called advancing age. Check your freezer.

Just buy replacements...you'll find your missing mags shortly after.

I picked up several ammo cans with foam cutouts for mags from Amazon. I labelled each can with the type of mag-Beretta, CZ, etc. Now, if I can find those damn cans.....

I feel your pain. We are about 11 months in on moving to a new house. I stumbled by a CZ P09 a couple months after moving I had stashed above a shelf, forgot I put it there. It got me thinking about taking inventory. I couldn't find a compact 92, racked my brain for months, made me sick. The wife found it a couple of weeks ago, I had put it in a mini safe in the guest room. She didn't even call me a dumb ass Big Grin

Proof that I haven't completely lost my mind. Also proof that I should look a little harder.

I found my missing magazines in an empty ammo can -- which was why I kept it in the first place.

There are five or six ammo boxes in my closet. And most of them contain -- wait for it -- ammo.

But as I was pulling them out of the closet to give it the fine tooth comb treatment, one was inordinately light. I opened it, and voilà - there they were! Next stop, the range...

Sounds like you need AmmoCan Magnets. The one in the link is for Mags with a fill in spot for specifics, but they have other options.

Better that having TSA find them in that carry on you used to move a bunch of your stuff... you know, that little tiny pocket where you put the loaded LCP magazines, but somehow one managed to stay tucked into a corner.... Eek

I have 6 or so p239 mags around here somewhere. I was going to carry the P239 but could not find but one of my mags for the weapon. Replacements for these mags are non-existent!



Get over it!!
