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 Worse than Clinton

I think that this time is worse than when Clinton got in office. I work in the gun business and have tooled up to load my own .223 and 12 Gauge shotgun.

Some one came in and bought all the relaoder 17 from the one store I shop. That pissed me off.

Why can't people jsut act like normal humans? Not hording everythign in sight.

Once all you horders are done buying up everything I will then go out and get all teh closeouts because none of you are buying anymore. So thank you.

Default Sorry

I feel for you guys that cant find ammo. I have been able to find plenty of .223, .22, .40 and powders. Primers are harder to find now. I just picked up two 550 count federal bulk .22 HP for $13.47 a box and 250 Ultramax .223 55 grain SP for $99 plus I used a Sportsmans Warehouse $10 off $50 purchase coupon for the .223.

This is what I've read recently:

The DOD has mandated the destruction of all fired brass in the military... this brass is sold to the general population for reloading. However, I have also recently heard that the mandate was remanded as of early this morning. I have no confirmation on the remission of the mandate but the mandate itself is very real. This is albeit not the only reason but is probably one reason for ammo shortages. The government in its current form isn't going to risk a revolution by directly attacking our RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS but instead they will come at us sideways with things like induced ammo shortages and micro stamping for ridiculous reasons such as "Homeland Security" which will hike prices so as to push guns out of reach of the general public: "We the People."


This is total bull, but most of us won't give up our security that we have in our lives to get up and take a stand for ourselves. Its tough, granted... but someday, one of these days somebody will, and i'll be standing next to him, same as most of all of yall and we will be brothers when that day comes... we will have to be to survive.
