How Bad Is the Ammo Shortage? This Bad
http://www.powerlineblog.com/ ^ | 08/05/2013 | John Hinderaker

Ammo is getting scarce! But this morning I lucked out and was able to buy two boxes of ammo.

I placed the boxes on the front seat and headed back home, but stopped at a gas station where a drop-dead gorgeous blonde in a short skirt was filling up her car at the next pump.

She glanced at the two boxes of ammo, bent over and leaned in my passenger window, and said in a sexy voice, “I’m a big believer in barter, old fella. Would you be interested in trading sex for ammo?”

I thought for a few seconds and asked,

“What kind of ammo ‘ya got?”

Ammo happens occasional. Sex, not so much. Both are scarce in this present day. Ammo more-so. Thank God.

Oh, for that, I think I could spare about 5000 rounds of 22LR!

You’d be better off asking for that amount for yourself prior to any exchange.

True story, huh? Then there must be a lot of this same thing happening. Got a serial forward weeks back same exact story verbatim.

It is a funny quip, though!

Is that sarcasm? Because Universal Hoarding is what caused the problem.
(Well that and the regime buying a gazillions rounds for homeland security)

Believe it or not, the CMP (civilian marksmanship program) is ACTUALLY SHIPPING .22rf AMMO to club members who order it thru the GUMMINT!
It took almost three months, but their Aguilia Mexican ammo (Mexican-made Remington) comes at $260/5000 case Fedex and is at LEAST as accurate as Ely green box.
It’s a tad pricey by the old rules—but join a club and plink away! Trigger time is good time!

Going by the pics, what were you doing bartering for ammo at a Russian gas station?

Only 1 in 100 men would notice that it was a Russian gas station, only 50 would notice she was pumping gas.

There’s no way that market forces could create a total dearth of 22 ammo in the US for seven or eight months.

True, but things are loosening up... a little. Last night I got 3 boxes of Tula 7.62x39 for $5.17 a box at Walmart. 60 rounds is abut two weeks worth.

The text said she’s blond but she’s not. I see no one noticed that either. Lol.

I’ve only seen aguila ammo once and I read on the box that it has no powder in it. It’s a primer only shot round. beware.

I got 2 boxes of TulAmmo (Russian made) .45 steel case at WalMart last week for $15.57/box. Don’t know what it’s like, but for 31 cents a round I’ll find out. Clerk says he hasn’t seen .22 in six months.

I found 9mm in a Walmart at 10:30 p.m. when the shipment just came in, and I was allowed one whole box! There were a dozen on the shelf.

Good supply with all Manufacturers in full production. Greater demand from all hoarding sources. Myself included.

Only in our fledgling neo-communist country could “hoarding” be considered a bad thing.

I’ve shot plenty of Aguila and it’s actually a little hotter than a lot of other .22 ammo. It is certainly not “primer only”.

Aquila makes bunch of ammo. One of their products is the equivalent of CB caps. They make quality ammo for the most part.
