Ten years of the MAGPUL PMAG | SHOT 2017

Since I have been attending SHOT, one booth I always look forward to is the Magpul booth. This year, Magpul celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Magpul PMAG. To celebrate the anniversary, Magpul had an exhibit that showed the evolution of the PMAG. The wall included prototypes as well as actual magazines that were taken into harms way or that had extreme use.

The evolution of the PMAG. The Wall was full of 3d printed prototypes.

This part of the exhibit featured magazines that were carried by soldiers and firearms instructors. There was a lot of history behind that pane of glass.

Pat Rogers was an amazing trainer and a great human.

    Cool. Did anyone try to steal the display straight cut 20 rounder?

    Coincidentally it’s also TFB’s 10 year anniversary this year too.

    • What’s special about the 20 round non-curved mag?

        Some people like the way they look and they don’t know where they can buy new ones now that Magpul has stopped making them.

        It’s an image thing. Some people prefer the straighter look to the curved.

    Uh, wow. A magazine shrine. The geeknerd is strong in this one. More importantly, were there booth babes?

    What anniversary are we on for the desk stapler? For those of us sentenced to marriage, which anniversary year is the one for exchanging magazines?
