Blue Turf,

It was the same regarding the AR-15 Rifles and accessories. I told several people throughout the last couple of years they best be getting off of their duff and get their ARs and accessories ordered. This because if Obama got re-elected our Second Amendment would be under attack! And later I advised them of the coming crunch on ammunition, magazines and other items. But you know the answer! Did they pay attention! NO!
Now the telephone rings of the hook wanting help to know where some of these items are and who they can contact to get them. They are Wanting ARs, Ammunition, Magazines and other items. Not much I can do, with things the way they are but I still trying to help what I can. But not parting with my stuff to supply them at this point. Obviously I would assist them if a serious situation comes up where there welfare or family safety was an issue. But as the old saying goes. POOR PLANNING ON THEIR PART DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AND EMERGENCY ON MINE! You hate to be that way, but it is like when all of us here advised them it went right over their heads. Or as you all said, they were less concerned or the issue was of some inconvenience and not a priority. Or they were as stated too lazy to act!
This is only a brief preview of what is going to happen if the S should ever hit the fan. We each will have to protect what we have to and including deadly force! God forbid that should happen! But if it does we will need to defend our family, or property, our armament and food. Once again a lack of concern or planning.

To the OP:

I would not subsidize others joy shoots but it is in all our interest to make sure other citizens have access to an iron reserve for major emergencies.

In the science fiction scenario of a civil war or ZA I would release my stash freely to other fighters to maximize our combat power.

I am not selling any of the ammo I have. I advised the shooters I know to stock up on the ammo they needed and not all of them listened. If I go shooting with certain friends we gladly share our ammo with each other, but I am not going to sell it to someone who was too lazy to buy some when they had the chance.

A few people asked if I would sell some of mine and offered way less than current market prices for it.

What are your thoughts on this?
I was offered a sum of money for ammo. I hardly knew the guy other than seeing him on the tarmac at the airfield from time to time. However, I wished him luck finding some, and even offered to aid him in the search. But, like me, all of my buddies refused to part with their ammo. No matter the price. I look at it this way. The ammo is insurance for me and my family against criminals of all stripes. The ammo I do use is from a collective effort on shooting together with my buddies where sharing goes naturally unmindful.

Tell ya what, I can keep an eye out for the rest of you guys if you want... just a couple of days ago I saw a 800 round case of LC 5.56 go for $400, and a 1000 round case of Tulammo 7.62X39 go for $450. These deals lasted a couple of minutes, but if someone were to give me a Max price:number of rounds, I might could be quick enough to negotiate for some of y'all. I don't even know if those were good prices, but I've seen both ammo in both quantities go for much, MUCH, more money than that recently.
What are the naes of the facebook pages? Just search "gun trader" or something along those lines?

Sounds a lot like someone asking you to share your lunch, because they were "too busy" to pack one. Or asking for part of your paycheck because they spent all theirs. Where do they draw the line?

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?

I'd share my ammo in a SHTF situation but only with my friends (and yes I consider the largest part of you friends).

Type in keywords such as "guns", "tactical", "ammo/ammunition", "knives", "outdoors", "sporting", and such along those lines (pretty much words you would see on the cover of a gun magazine), add your location to the search bar, and you should come up with some local stuff.

I have only one bullet and the only way I'll share is if you have donuts.
