Gun sales will go through the roof-starting today (vanity)

Posted on 11/05/2008 4:53:09 AM PST by NoobRep

I've read a few articles here and there about how gun sales are skyrocketing because of this new dictator about to take power.

I'll be purchasing several handguns, shotguns and maybe more in the coming days myself. I no longer feel safe in this country and believe the Gestapo is about ready to come after those of us that challenge the authority of the dictatorship.

Ouch! That sucker LOOKS painful! .44 mag is a case where I like heavy.

They’ll run out of willing jackboots before we run out of deer rifles.

I would venture to say that you've never done that kind of work before.

I’m sure it’ll shoot great. I just wonder how much it will hurt!

Of course, you can always feed it softer shooting .44 specials, and save the magnums for special occaisions.

I picked up a box of .223 yesterday and two guys bought AR-15’s in those few minutes.

“I have lots of .223, but need more 7.62x54R, ...”

What’s enough? What is lots?

If I have 200 rounds for each handgun and each shotgun; am I in ok shape?

I bought most of it for y2k, do I have to worry that any of it has gone bad?

What is the best test to see if moisture has affected any rounds or shells outside of firing it off?

(grin)

“lots of .223” = +/-6,500 live rounds plus 3,000 reloadable cases & 5,000 bullets

But I am a Texan and confermed gun nut... I’m planning on picking up 500 rounds of 12ga 00Buck and 1,000 of 7.62x54R that is brass cased so I can reload it. 2,000 bullets for the 7.62x54R (.310”) came in this week.

I normally consider 500 rounds for pistols and shotguns a minimum someone should have for their “go to” firearms. You do need to practice with a pistol especially so account for 50 rounds once or twice a month...

Moisture? Check for discoloring and dampness in the packaging. Best is fire a random sampling at the range. You can also pull (or have pulled) a bullet & powder charge to make sure the powder is lose, free flakes or pellets.

You should really consider adding a rifle to the mix...

Pop over to www.gunsnet.net, we talk guns a lot! I have the same handle there...

Ammoman.com has the banner headline:
WE ARE RUNNING 5 DAYS BEHIND ON ORDERS AND 1 DAY BEHIND ON E-MAILS - SORRY NO PHONES AT THIS TIME. PLEASE BE PATIENT
They are sold out of the good brands of .45, and the prices are MUCH higher than they were a couple of months ago.

We have had one of the guys over at www.gunsnet.net post about reloading steel case. He has had pretty good success at it. So far I’ve avoided trying. I reloaded twenty years ago and just decided to get back into it in a big way. So when one of the other board members put his Dillion XL650 up for sale I bought it. I’m having to relearn things and a few are new to me...

I’m going to avoid berdan primed except as purchased loaded ammo, no reloading.
