This is the grand irony,
the libs endlessly complain about gun manufacturers profits, yet they made them skyrocket by successfully electing Obama twice.

Just scanning the linked article, it looks like those are just the ones requiring background checks. I wonder what the total is.

“There are 2.29 active members in the Chinese Army.

India

- There are 1.13 active members in the Indian Army. “

wow, that’s not very many

It’s not the Indian or Chinese Army we fear.

Every where I look there’s a number of about 300 million firearms in the possession of US citizens. My gut says that number is low. Articles like this suggest that the number must be higher. Guns don’t age like cars.

Tell me about it. I’ve been looking for a 9mm handgun, and the places are picked over. Given that I’m a fiscal conservative, I’m also frugal, which is slowing down the purchase. (Supply and demand causing prices to rise).

I added the numbers. November and December purchases totaled 1.28 million more than the combined Indian and Chinease armies, meaning he probably could have included the U.S. Army and Marines with a few guns still left over.

Tonight I’m headed over to a real small place a couple towns over to see if I can get a little 7.62x39 ammo for my rifle that I lost due to an unfortunate boating accident. 8^| Just for target practice. Should be interesting to see what he does/doesn’t have in stock.

‘A friend of mine’ who went 55 years of his life without one just bought two guns this month.

[And then lost them in a tragic boating accident]

The store owner was happy he was making a ton of money- even expanded his store open hours temporarily.. but he said he was worried about what would happen to his business AFTER

Does anyone here shoot a 410? Is reloading those shells much cheaper? (I know they are very expensive to begin with, for some reason)

How do 410 shotgun shells compare with .45 bullets? (cost wise) the one gun ‘my friend’ bought is made to shoot both.) [I mean if he hadn’t lost them in the tragic boating accident]

me, too.

was waiting for a more opportune time to add more / (replace the one in the boating accident) ...

doesn't look like the price is EVER going to go down.

if I am any more cynical, we should check the firearm/ammo manufactures’ link to politicians who want to post more gun laws. Every time some thing like this in the air, there is a run on both. Never fails.

"Honest Americans Bought Enough Guns in November and December to Outfit the Entire Chinese and Indian Armies"

I truly hope this is accurate because not a one was purchased so that a gun owner would have something to turn in.

Good to know that if it comes to Revolution-II, we won’t have to be in debt to the French (Navy) or Dutch ($’s).

Couldn’t move in the Berea, Ohio Gun Show yesterday. Shoulder to shoulder attendance.

My son and I both joined the NRA last Thursday.

Excellent news then.

This should put some fear into “the Indian or Chinese (or any one else’) Army”.

Locally I’ve seen a pretty good supply of 7.62 x 39, .308 and most handgun stuff (.9mm and .40) NO .223 / 5.56 to be found anywhere.

That's funny you should mention it. A relative of mine recently found his cache of weapons. They are hand-me-downs. Some of them are VERY VERY old. 1873 Winchester for instance. There is an M1 Garand in the mix. They are in pretty good condition for the most part. But we are taking them to a gun smith to have them tuned up and ready to shoot. We suspect most have not been fired since at least the 1960s.

To get to your point, however, in a demanding position, I'd run a cloth or two down that M1, jam that loaded steel clip in it and give it a try.

Add a dozen or so weapons to those previously lost in statistics to old age. We are bringing these weapons back up to specs (just for fun and family treasures of course). They will be battle ready...er... I mean ready for the range in about a month. I'll keep these family heirlooms in tip top shape from now until I pass them on.

That’s encouraging. I have 1k rounds waiting for me in a secure location, which I will pick up later this winter. Until then I need small amounts. I’m conserving as much as possible. I heard Wal-Fart is NOT restocking ammo. Not sure if this is true or not. I’m tempted to go find out.

It is the homes without guns I would be worried about. Easy enough to check addresses on streets to see if they were gun owners.

Me, too!

The United States Citizens KNOW that they're going to have to fight TYRANTS in their own government.
You cannot protect life, without the ability to take life.

While you are WAITING for the police to respond, someone could be losing their life.
All people of a responsible age should be armed.

As EternalVigilance reminded us:

Click here to read the 12 page pamphlet.


Let us NEVER FORGET THAT !

Let's subjugate them to OUR end game, DUST!
"COMPROMISE" is a DIRTY word!
People who study the Bible know that COMPROMISE almost always leads to destruction.


It's time to mock the "Gun Control" Zombies!
"Gun Control" is a firm grip, steady breathing, accurate aim (developed by lots of practice), and a slow trigger pull.


The Swiss have got it CORRECT !
We need to learn from the Swiss and implement their "gun control measures" here in the United States right now, today!
These laws are the ones we should shove into the "2nd Amendment Haters" faces.

The Swiss have got it CORRECT !
Let's adopt THEIR LAWS !

Remember: Read Second Amendment: It’s Not About Hunting, IT'S ABOUT TYRANNY .
