It was late July of 2009. I just came back from deployment & wanted to pick up a 1911 but when I looked I noticed the ammo shelves were nearly empty, the only calibers left were oddballs. I asked the clerk what happened to all of it & he told me people bought the ammo by the case, clearly an Obama scare. I checked every store I knew that sold ammo & they were just not getting them in fast enough, even the black powder components were bought up. That's when I resorted to stump remover, charcoal, fishing sinkers, strike anywhere matches, & a few instructionals. It was WAY cheaper & the libs can't tax kitchen ammo.
