He’s the found of HCMAGS (High Capacity Magazines). They make a great magazine for Ruger 22 Long Rifle. It allows for quick loading of the magazines. They also utilize some “wasted” space that many small caliber magazines tend to have. Be sure to check them out at the Shot Show this year.

Andrews: I have with me here today Cary Taylor from HC Mags. How are you doing? Cary Taylor: Great. Doing good here today. Can you tell us a little bit about your company, Cary? We manufacture a high capacity magazine for the Rotary 10/22 and like products. Our magazine is unique in it’s features; it’s not your typical high capacity magazine. It has a thumb-assist, stripper clip design and a side pocket for extra storage on the magazine that can be reloaded in seconds upon shooting the first 20-25 rounds out. That’s the basics of the product. It’s 30% glass-filled nylon, with stainless fasteners and feed lips, and so it’s made of very high-durable components, and we support the magazine. One of the features of our magazine is that you can call us if there is something wrong with the magazine and we’ll help you out with it. Whether it be you broke a part or lost a part, and you really can’t do that with any other magazines out there, especially anything in the Ruger field. That’s the basics We’ve been in the market for a few years now, coming up on our third year as we’re going to Shot Show. This is our second year at SHOT Show. We have a booth down there now, and so basically we’re just looking for dealers and people who want to bring it on. You’re going to be at the Shot Show this year inside Vegas? Yes, on the bottom floor. I don’t have the booth right off the bat, but if you go to the bottom floor, you’ll find us. Your current products right now and your speed loading techniques for this is absolutely phenomenal. It looks so easy to use and saves so much time. I hold the patents on this particular product design and utility, and, you know, “necessity is the mother of invention,” is what they say. I was a 22-shooter from a young age, and this was in my head for a long time before it actually got to this point. Trying to solve all of the basic problems of the magazine itself, and loading was the biggest one. Spending so much time, especially if you like to shoot a lot, can be really… you know, you can only shoot as long as your thumb holds out. You know, that was the case, so we designed a system where you can throw 100 rounds in a, basically, a box. It’s just got one moving part, the slide. You jostle it around and you can organize 100 rounds in under two minutes. Strip ’em out using the stripper clips, and you’re ready to go down-range with 100 rounds as fast as you can pull the trigger. And you can do all of that from start-to-finish in under two minutes; have all of that arranged and ready to go, and you just can’t do that with any high-capacity magazine in this field. You sell products for high-capacity magazines and you also sell an additional thing to load all of the magazines, correct? Yes, so the speed-loader is, if you go to hcmags.com, you can actually see that there’s videos that shows all of these products in in-field use, and you can see in real time how they actually work. What I really like about your speed-loader is that you can actually have a second set of rounds inside the speed-loader, as well. The magazine, one of the components on the traditional Ruger 10/22 magazine, there’s basically an empty space on the side of the magazine in a Ruger or Butler Creek, or whatever you have there, and it’s really, it’s a do-nothing space. They basically make it uniform so that it looks aesthetically pleasing, because the whole magazine is in the same – has a uniformity to it, but it really has no function on their side of things. So, we decided to utilize that space as an extra ammo – 20 rounds of ammo – to be stripped off and put back into the magazine, so you have a 20 round stripper clip, you load it up, you’re ready to go 20 rounds. If you want another extra 5 rounds, you can use the thumb assist to assist in actually loading that next five rounds so you don’t kill your thumb, so you’ve got 25 rounds if you so choose. Shoot it all out, and then pull the magazine out, pull the stripper clip off, strip those other 20 rounds off the side-pocket, then you’re back in in under 10 seconds for another 20 rounds without having to bust your thumb or even deal with the ammo, you know, logistics of managing the ammo: reloading, pulling the box open, all that stuff. It just makes the whole experience of shooting much more enjoyable, much more fun. What firearms do you currently support with this magazine? Like, say, Ruger 10/22, obviously. You know, the Takedown and all the versions of that. The charger pistol, the M-77, anything with other manufacturers that make the 10/22 version, and we can fit it, all those, mag-well. Like I said, as long as it fits in the mag-well of a 10/22 wide semi-automatic, it’ll work, or even bol
