I was at a store once when that happened. The guy that's behind me in line said no worries, at least I know where to go to get ammo now. Pretty scary thing to hear. It's way to easy to find folks now days and of course that got me to thinking. Why wouldn't someone just buy a large amount on line? It would be like going to the bank and withdrawing a very large amount of cash. Just paints you as a target IMO.

Default Not keeping up with the times

It absolutely amazes me about cowboys,paranoria ect.Seems to me that buying and stocking ammo is a very wise thing to do in view of The Leader of the current administration doing everything is his power... example: notifing the United Nations that he is ready to sign the arms legislation with them,or his currently banning over 100000 US mfg Carbines and .45 automatics that were given as lend lease to re enter the county and be sold to US Citizens .Have you read what the United Nation arms treaty intends to do?Hasn't anyone noticed the willingness of the current administration to severely limit US citizens access to guns and ammo--even to the point of taking away the weaponty guaranteed to the citzens under the constitution and Bill of Rights.The countries where the governments have taken total control of the people thru out history are ones where the citizens didnt have the ability to stand up and fight if need be. I have supported my nation for over 43 years both as a soldier and as a civilian employee and will continue to do so until I return to the earth from which I came--but being prepared is what its is all about weather be your life,home or country.

I just skip those now. I still feel like crap for using the word "retard" on a guy with a kid who has down syndrome when he posted something like that.

Easier to just keep my mouth shut (or fingers still).

It's like I've said before, I personally find it disrespectful. I feel it's almost equivalent to talking over someone when no punctuation is used. Almost like a combination of "you're not important enough for me to make my thoughts clear to you" and "let me hurry up and put this out there".

Not to mention I seem to get out of breath when reading like that.

No doubt, I'm not trying to be a penis but it's absolutely the equivalent of being rude, unless it's 120 characters on twitter or text messages or your space bar is broke but if that was the case I'd just not post until I was able to remedy whatever my technological ailment was. I'm just not going to read incoherent babble except in the case of English being a second language but even then, that level of of jibber jabber is a rarity.

It's true enough that bills writing style is awkward. The use of forward slashes might indicate he's using some device other than a standard computer. I took the liberty, with all due respect to bill, to re-format his post to see what he was saying. We might cut him some slack. He seems to have a few creds.

Here is my version of bill's post. Not that I'm an expert on writing styles!

bill, please excuse any mis-interpretations I may have inadvertently injected.


"It seems to me that buying and stocking ammo is a very wise thing to do in view of The Leader of the current administration doing everything in his power: for example….notifying the United Nations that he is ready to sign the arms legislation with them...or his currently banning over 100,000 US mfg.
carbines and .45 automatics that were given as lend-lease to re-enter the country and be sold to US citizens.

Have you read what the United Nations arms treaty intends to do?

Hasn't anyone noticed the willingness of the current administration to severely limit US citizens' access to guns/ammo? Even to the point of taking away the weaponry guaranteed to the citizens under the Constitution and the Bill of Rights? The countries where the governments have taken total control of the people thru-out history are ones where the citizens didn't have the ability to stand up and fight if need be.

I have supported my nation for over 43 years both as a soldier and as a civilian employee and will continue to do so until I return to the Earth from which I came.

But being prepared is what it's all about….. whether it be your life, your home or your country."

I just finished shooting some Estate out of my 870 Express 20 gauge. I have to say, I have never been less impressed with ammo. Every other shot the shell would get stuck and I had to really pump it hard to get it out. By stuck I mean STUCK. Has anybody else experienced this?
