Default Good Grief, firearms have gone crazy.

I have called about everywhere wanting a 24 inch 5.56 standard upper with aluminum free floating hand guard, and single rail steel gas block. 16 to 20 week backlog. Bulk 5.56 or 223 forget it. The country has gone into the panic, nucking futs firearm buying mode.

Hope all the lib's in DC are watching!

I've cut back on range shots. Note I didn't say trips, just the total round count.

Mounted my scope and take my spotting glass now to really slow down the trigger pulls and smell the cordite!

This too will pass, remember $4+ gal gas?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Default I agree

Cane, the $4 agallon gas will return. As for the DC libs, if they have gotten around to pulling their heads out of their A$$, they are probably crapping themselves over the number of SUR's going out the doors. Darn glad I picked my ol AR when I did. Law of Supply and demand will kick back in sometime.

Get on this quick, as these guys have a fast turnover. https://surplusammo.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=23&products _id=37&zenid=1033f2fb842da5eb17d8ea6750a5f9eb

Also, keep an eye on the site as they frequently have PMC and Federal XM 192 and SS109.
