if premer obama is going to ban all guns (as I fear he will) than its smart thinking to buy as many as we can before he bans them. its a lot harder to take the guns from my house than it is to take them from the shelves of a fleet farm.
I just picked up a Bushmaster Carbon 15 Type 97S pistol yesterday. No SBR registration difficulties with that...
Locusts are stripping ammo shelves bare everyplace I look. And I spoke recently to somebody at Bushmaster, and he said they're absolutely getting killed with orders.
I think the threat of wild Democrats every eight years does wonders for the gun industry sales - I'm sure in the 'buy it now or forever hold your peace' frame of mind.
I contribute to my ammo stash just like I do with my IRA - weekly. A couple hundred rounds every payday. It adds up!
WOW .... let's hope that Jan 20th a lot of 4473 document fires happen as FFL's start leaving the market.
RE: “I want to join the NRA but am scared that if Obama gets in they could use the subscription files to hunt down gun owners. And yeah, I’m buying ammo too! “
I just joined — and got a cute NRA baseball cap as a thank you. I have NO gun; may or may not ever get one = depends on how this thing goes on Tuesday — but I would NOT worry about “them” getting subscription files and tracking gun owners using that info.
There’d be a ton of dead-ends by doing that. They’d have to get hold of gun owner registration records, not magazine subs.
Business at our local gun shop here is up by almost 50%. There is a 2 week wait now to use the range. Busy busy busy!
I’ve been spending a lot of time polishing my bullets. LOL!
On a firearms thread it's known as a DOUBLE TAP!
True but it’d be a start ... my understanding is that federal gun records are restricted after 30 days when you buy a gun. So far there have been several tries on getting those records but were unsuccessful ... in an Obama administration he’d find a way to get those records ....
I’m a lifetime NRA member and I would say you need to go on and join, however I would never apply for a CCW!
And the EOTech sight will set you back about 450-500. But I LOVE that thing on my weapon.
My son bought one from a fellow Marine for $800.00.....deal of the century.....
This is exactly the news I expected. My family has already decided we’re going to get in on this at some point too, particularly if Barry wins.
2 dillons and a lee pumping out rounds. 45’s,357’s,40’s and highly accurate 308’s.
Too late - I have a CCW already.
I carry a .32 Baretta Tomcat ..... always ......
my local gunshop has been selling anything semiauto and High Capacity. The shotguns and muzzleloaders are just sitting on the shelf with hunting season opening tomorrow.
>Locusts are stripping ammo shelves bare everyplace I look.
I got me 2000 rds for my PS90. If anything, I’ll be well stocked for the riots. ;)
Or, you know, just going out and doing some fun shooting.
