News report on Fox. Gun and ammo sales "through the roof" just in case we see an overtly communist Obama in a second term. Cheaper Than Dirt spokesman says all US ammo production already spoken for through the rest of the year. Gun ranges maxed out with shooters.
Maybe the Mexican Druglords will sell us some of our ammo back.
IRONY? The new border ‘trafficking’ will be arms and ammo being brought IN to the US.
Glad I stocked up on primers, powder, and projectiles when prices weren’t insane.
The title is misleading. You can still get surplus ammo.
No problem, I prepared for Obama during the Clinton years.
I stocked up after the supplies came back to normal after last election and glad I did. Spent about 7 gran but now have all the ammo I will ever need, and for my kids, and for my grandkids. They will never want for ammo for any reason when the caribou show up; one less thing to think about.
Stop. Talking. About. What. You’ve. Got. Cached.
I just ordered a case of 9mm and 12ga slugs this morning from CTD - no problem. Good prices too. Ammo may be allocated but it’s still abundant.
Not if you’re looking for 5.56 or 40 cal.
It made me proud to be an American. There aren't many things that do anymore.
1: Prevention of tyranny
(”Local” all the way up to “world”).
2: Protection from Russian mob and immigrants in N.E. Philadelphia.
(They are well armed and organized).
3: Protection from hungry “dis-entitled” when funding stops.
(They are armed, stupid, and already here).
In case anyone asks, I'm mortally and unreasonably afraid of guns-especially scary black ones-and contact with ammo makes my psoriasis act up. I only trawl gun shops so that I can feel superior to all those cretins who think they need big scary guns to feel like real men. But I can't stay long because I get itchy. ;-P
"Keep it secret, keep it safe."
The meeting I joined at, there were 7 new applicants for membership.
My wife joined just this past March. At that meeting there were 40 new applicants for membership. Things are heating up at the grassroots level for sure.
These are orders for distributors.
At the gun range this past weekend there were a high percentage of assault type rifles, relatively few traditional hunting rifles.
Or what you *had* cached.
Two thinks funny about that pic.
First, the name of the boat.
Second, the fact that it is tied off. Wouldn’t want to lose it, donchaknow.
It’s tied off so it won’t drift.
>> “Glad I stocked up on primers, powder, and projectiles when prices werent insane.” <<
Were you old enough that long ago? :o)
You can bet it wasn’t the operator that tied it off!
I was at the range last Thursday. Usually I like going then because it’s the quietest day of the week—frequently no more than two others on the range besides me and the RSO.
This last time, there were probably 12-14 people there. On a Thursday!! Didn’t pay much attention to what people had but I do recall a woman with a Mini-14 and a couple of guys with Dragunovs.
Egad how I want a Mini-14. I have found several for good prices that I would simply adore having.
But alas, I live in Massachusetts (for now). The Mini-14 is not a legal firearm. Capacity over 10 and a flash suppressor. Some with collapsible stocks (the tacticals).
Never understood why people insist on going boating with every bullet and firearm they own. Do they think there is a pirate ship waiting every couple of miles?;)
Now that I’ve learned they carry them, Wally World can’t seem to get any more of the cans of 5.56. Sucks.
Doesn’t bother me too much. I have adequate supplies of ammo for all my centerfires and more than I will ever use in .22LR and .22mag.
I do wish I had something other than corrosive in 8mm Mauser tho.
