Just wondering, where do you guys tend to buy magazines and drums from?

The 18 capacity magazines are readily available from retailers, but everything else seems like a pain to get.

I had some luck so far with buying two magazines from the trading section here, but everywhere else I look (i.e. ebay) tends to sell things at a mark up.

Especially the 35 round drums. I'm trying to get one or two for my Rapidstrike build but the only place I can find them is ebay and they're going for $25-30 average.
Even 25 round drums cost $25-30. At that price, I might as well get a Rampage, keep the drum, and sell/donate the rest.

I haven't had time to go find a goodwill in the city yet though, but I feel like nerf isnt as popular around here (Manhattan) since the kids have no where to shoot em. Heck, I didn't even own a nerf gun until we started shooting them at the office.
Are there other good places where I should be looking?

Craigslist could be nice if you're into that sort of thing. And sometimes, I do find some gems at a local goodwill.

I have purchased 18-round drums off of amazon before. At last check there were still some for sale. I have also had the most luck finding 35 round drums at Goodwill or through craigslist.

I nerf in Manhattan too, I also know a guy with a 25 drum, but stick mags are better anyway, you can have magazine pouches and store more. I have a few 18 mags too. Also our goodwills are pretty bad at stocking, I've searched a few with nothing.

Damnit, I was at work all day so I didnt check forums and missed that sale... How much was it for those 18 cap mags?

And yea I agree the magazines are easier to carry, but my nerf guns are for office warfare (I'm probably going overboard btw lol) so portability isnt a concern.

Craigslist around here has a few interesting listings, I'll probably check them out, but if the people arent willing to ship then I'm out of luck.

I have a few 18 rd stick mags and a 12 and some 6 ones. If you're interested they're in my sales thread. Ebay is usually marked up high, I've seen some stuff listed on craigslist near me, so that might be worth a try.

I think I'm actually good for now.

After making this thread, I had a lot of helpful offers via PM, so thank you everyone who messaged me!

Turns out the best place is really these forums haha.

EDIT: Interesting "autocorrect" when you write "PM 'd"
