Skip to comments.Proctor Chief Turns to Citizens During Ammo Shortage (Deluth MN)
Posted on 05/10/2013 11:46:59 AM PDT by aimhigh
A nationwide ammunition shortage has police departments across the country counting their bullets. It's no different in Proctor, where the Chief says he was told he'd have to wait months, even a year to get more ammo.
. . . .
With the Proctor Police Department in need of ammunition, the Chief sent out a call asking for help.

They must have a lot of dogs there.
The answer is in your question. Let DHS give them their ammo.
If would really depend on the department’s history as to dealing with the public.
They can’t have mine, I’m pretty damned sure they wouldn’t help me if I was out!
They carry .40cal Glocks around here; I hate that round, and of my 7 calibers and 360k rounds and 1 ga, don’t have it. SOL, guys; sorry.
I’ve got half a box of corrosively primed .32-20 I’d chip in.
All my 40 ammo fell off my boat.
They knew about the grab and should have prepared. Send a check to Big sis and demand some ammo! She seems to be the new supplier!
I am not parting with my ammo unless the bullets are headed down range at a target. If it is at a target range I will police my casings also.
There was once a time when it would be perfectly natural for citizens to help them out. These days, they’d better just ask their stormtrooper buddies.
We're especially short of the kind of hollow points that police across the U.S. use for target practice!
Can’t they just get a 3D file and then print some? :-)
No, I’d be suspicious they were trying to deplete my supply in order to make it easier for them to confiscate my guns later. It isn’t as if government hasn’t been known to do that. If police are out of ammo, me and my loved ones will take care of my own security, thank you very much.
OUR own security.
On second thought, I will be willing to send them a box of pop tarts. They can bite them into whatever caliber they wish.
I’d loan em some, but I don’t think they need any .41rf or .577/450 ammo.
Where is Deluth, MN? Never heard of it.
What do they really need the ammo for? We know law enforcement doesn’t get that much range time and there are only so many dogs to shoot.
Wait. The same police departments that are standing should-to-shoulder with Obama on gun confiscation and making public pronouncements that no one should own black guns is now asking for bullets from evil gun owners? Do I have this right??
Now that’s funny!! unfortunately...
Yeah, is this Al Franken? You got any good ammo deals? What? Hello?
Are these the guys among those who are asking?
This Bravo Sierra, pure an simple. The Duluth area is a liberal/communist stronghold in MN. They actually believe that if they lie about not being able to get ammunition for law enforcement, the public will vouluntarily sell theirs to the cops. This is nothing more than a badly veiled attempt to get as much ammo out of the hands of citizens as possible.
If I can (and do) buy .40 SW ammo every week, why can’t they?
Where are you getting .577/450?
Or are you forming the cases yourself from another cartridge?
Deputize me... let me purchase full auto on department letterhead then I will hook you up with some .40 Short and Wussie!
it’s spelled Duluth!!
Proctor is a very small city at most 10 cops total
I have 2 ancient boxes. I can’t remember from where.
I have read people form the cases from 28 gauge cases, but I haven’t tried yet.
I would rather have the ammo in the hands of American citizens than in the hands of the police. The response time for ammo is around 1200 fps, while the response time for police is 10-100 minutes. The police don’t need ammo to take a report after the fact.
Last I saw, the remaining original Kynoch-manufactured stuff was selling for $20 PER ROUND.
Scene from ZULU DAWN...
Soldier #1: Point 577! smashes em! Flattens out!
Soldier #2: But the bullets run out! The bloody spears don’t!
Wow! That’s what I paid for my 2 boxes and I thought I got ripped!
Now all you’ve gotta do is find all-brass 24-guage shotgun shells.
Why, so they can shoot my dog or turn on the US citizens when hussein gives the order? Uh, no.
Someone needs to tell the chief that he needs to learn to reload.
“Would you sell your ammo to your local police force?”
Nope- we got this here recession on. I got to look after me and mine!
Chief needs to scrounge like the rest of us.
