It’s great to know that if Camp Obama “wins” this thing, they will be facing an ARMED America.
The little gun store that has everything not far from us sold 16 AR-15’s before noon on TH.
OOPS sorry for the double post....
Buying guns is good, but they are nothing but bricks and bats unless you get the ammo too. That said, I went out and bought 4,000 rounds of .223 at lunch today. It’s as good as gold.
Yep. Joined the NRA this a.m., and will attend the next gun show in Hampton Roads in VA to make my purchases before darkness falls on 20 Jan 09.
They said gun sales were up 40% in the past month and CCW permit applicants had a two week waiting period for the gun safety course that is required to be included with your application.
Jim and I bought a new shotgun this week, the gun counter at the sporting goods store(Sports Academy)was packed, we had to wait forever. They are doing a very brisk business, Jim said he’d never had to wait so long to buy a gun before, and there were 5 people working the gun counter!
Any time is a good time to add another gun to your collection.
Please don’t forget to buy enough ammo.
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.
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.
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.
The gun stores here have been packed when I’ve been in them over the past few weeks. Obama has inspired me to buy a few new guns recently—a Springfield XD45(which I would have gotten sooner or later), a Bushmaster AR(a type of gun I had no interest in before Obama), and a Yugoslavian underfolder AK(another type of gun I wasn’t interested in before Obama but I ran across one locally, and it’s cheaper to buy and shoot than my AR, plus it just looks cool.)
I finally got around to buying extra ammo today.
We traveled home from Reno, NV on Tuesday morning. Listening to Rush’s show the local tag story was ‘local gun sales up sharply in recent days, we’ll explain why...’
I needed a long gun so I bought a Winchester Model 70 (30-06) from a friend. Darn good sniper rifle with a good scope. The 70 replaces my SKS when I need to reach out and touch something.
I'm going to a gun show on Saturday 11/1 to stock up on ammo - heck, I might even buy another gun. I hope to take the rifle to the range this week while I am off from work.
I figure if the SHTF, I should be sufficiently armed with one of my shotguns (00 buck and #4 birdshot), the pistol and my parka pockets full of shells and spare clips. I hope and pray that I am wrong, but it would be irresponsible if I did not prepare for the worst.
Keep your powder dry.
