They've never seen anything like it. Every web site i've checked is sold out as well. $15 dollar steel mags (30rds) are going for as much as $100 dollars on ebay if you can find them at all. Crazy...
Think about what drives that. Either people fear their own government or they anticipate a break down of society to the extent that they will need to protect themselves with military type weapons.
