Default Caught up in the buying frenzy ??

I guess I am, just put in an order from sportsmans guide for x39 sp & a triple pack of 30 rnd ak mags.

Plus a holster for my cz75spo1. Probably won't ban holsters anytime soon but what the hell.

Better watch out for holster bans as well, cause it's already happened. Not too many years ago a well respected holster maker known mostly for their western rigs, Alfonso Of Hollywood, had someone arrested by the LAPD for making a holster for a snub nose revolver that had been ordered by a police officer. Don't know the disposition of the case, but it can be looked up on the internet. This stuff can't be made up. I'm sure there's more to come.

Not here...no need to go into a frenzy since I get ammo and preps on a weekly basis as money permits.

It should, however, be interesting to see what is and isn't left on the shelves at my LGS this weekend...

I also picked up some SKS food in soft point, partly out of fear of a shortage and partly because i didn't have any in SP. I also picked up some .45acp by SilverBear, as i've never tried their stuff and wanted to. I gotta say, that SilverBear has the thinnest looking copper coating i've seen on a projectile. I did inventory my ammo and do plan to replenish a diminished stock of .38/.357 for my revolver and some 9mm as well. I have shot up much of that stockpile and failed to reup.

I must further confess that i will probably end up buying a few other things before i really intended or can afford them from concern over potential new regulations (>10 round mags for the SKS and maybe that Bersa+ i keep delaying). On the plus side, if the economy collapses i won't have to pay off my credit card.

If i could buy ammo made of bear bones, i would. At least this way, i get to light a fire under some bears.

Honestly, having grown up in the "Red Dawn" era, i find it amusing to buy ammo from Russia.

With limited income available to spend on guns and ammo, my habits haven't changed.

I buy between 100-150 rounds of whatever a week. More guns is out of the question.

I recently bought up another 1000 rd case of .223 and 20 more pmags to put it in. I figure it doesn't do any good sitting in the boxes. It might as well be ready to go
