    Hello everyone. It's been some time since I last visited and things have changed a bit. I sold my 709 and picked up a 740. I have however encountered a problem that I never thought I'd see in a gun that's been on the market for more than two years. I am unable to find magazines for the 740. The stores in my area have none and ever since the whole gun control debate became furiously renewed, it's impossible to find a 740 magazine for a realistic price. I want a magazine but am unwilling to pay 100 to 200 percent over cost to opportunistic price gougers. Anyone have a suggestin or a site they use for pistol accessories?
