The greedy will always find an excuse for taking advantage of others.

Some actually think the ammo shortage is because whiners weren't prepared, and I guess when stores run out of ammo it was the consumers's fault and not because the store didn't plan ahead and have 50,000 extra rounds per caliber on hand?

Tit for tat is a child's game. The truth is there was no way to know this was going to happen so fast, and we're all in this together. Well, all of us are except for those who think it's okay to take advantage of others when the chips are down. You can bet your azz I won't be taking in anyone like that if the SHTF. If you'd casually burn me now you'd probably try to steal my food later.

Then why did so very many of us know????
Why did so many start stockpiling after the AWB back in 1994????

The signs were actually pretty obvious to anyone who was looking for them.

I don't understand people's freeking out over ammo anyway. Guns I get and I'm with ya. You wanna buy so if a ban gets passed the weapons grandfathered in. But ammo? There not trying to "ban" ammo. There are some bills that want to restrict online sales or have you pick ur order in person from a LGS. Some want to add a tax on ammo. None of that is a BAN. it's a inconvenience. If the AWS passed yesterday. Your still goina be able to buy ammo tomorrow , next week and next year! We're our own worst enemy!!

I will never shop at ctd at first they were ok but they have ridiculous shipping prices. Never ever ever will I give them any money even if somewhere else is pricier...
