    i'd pass for 2 reasons.
    1. cost. Pmags are $13
    2. not legal for use in Ohio (unless you have an NFA firearm)

    My agency has been doing some T&E with them. Reliability is good, but it's not too practical. It's a lot of weight, and you lose some versatility by committing to it. If you have a malfunction, you've lost sixty rounds instead of thirty, and carrying them is an issue as far as pouches go. It's really meant more for suppressive fire where a sub-five-second magazine change would be a real safety concern. (This isn't an issue in most gunfights outside of the military.) For most folks it's arguably mostly a novelty.

    Aha... you are right Don! I totally forgot, anything over 31 rounds is illegal in OH...

    Yup, I'll pass on those same reasons:

    illegal in Ohio
    cheaper to run two Pmags
    better to have a malfunction in a 30 round mags than a single 60 round mag.

    LGS has them for $99, or did a couple weeks ago. I think they're cool, but I've no use for one. Still kind of want one.

    overpriced novelty, fun to show off at the range but for that price it's out of the question, especially as others are saying, the price of high quality mags is quite reasonable, 1/10th the cost.

    I have one my nephew purchased for me. It performs perfectly. I only load 58 rounds in it, and have had no problems of any kind. It is good for kicks and grins.
    Whoever said it is too heavy is correct, it is also too long. My favorites are the 20 round Pmags. I do have some 30 round Pmags but find them a bit unwieldy also.
