Default Nov. 19th is National Ammo Day

A brief explanation - What is National Ammo Day?

November 19 is National Ammo Day.

It is a nationwide BUYcott of ammunition. You buy ammunition. 100 Rounds a person.

The goals of Ammo Day:

The goal of National Ammo Day is to empty the ammunition from the shelves of your local gun store, sporting goods, or hardware store and put that ammunition in the hands of law-abiding citizens. Make your support of the Second Amendment known--by voting with your dollars!

There are an estimated 75 MILLION gun owners in the United States of America. If each gun owner or Second Amendment supporter buys 100 rounds of ammunition, that’s 7.5 BILLION rounds in the hands of law-abiding citizens!

The gun/ammunition manufacturers have been taking the brunt of all the frivolous lawsuits, trying to put these folks out of business. Well, not if we can help it! And we CAN help it by buying ammunition on November 19!

Yay! That's my birthday!

Also, 9mm ammo seems tough to find. I haven't really been looking for anything else. Are there any other ammo types that are in short supply?

Yeah, this isn't the first year for this. I just think an ammo buycott is a great idea.

Not if our budgets are okay.

You may buy yourself 100 rds. Then buy me 100rds.

I'll see if I can get around to getting some cash saved. Got a large collection of coins that has been itching to be changed to bills
