It doesn't take a genius to figure out the feds arent buying 22lr and 7.62x39, until we stop all this panic buying stupidy, it will continue to be this way.

i aggree its is true that people are panic buying, but a lot of people actually shoot.. and often. and i think the number that actually shoots is growing as well as the panic buys. either way ive trimmed my shooting habits recently. the winter helped. lol its only fun to shoot in short time frames when you cant feel your fingers.

Exactly who has to be in the Oval Office ready to act "if Congress doesn't," and what party has to be in charge of the US Senate driving their anti gun agenda (including the reinstatement of a more expansive Assault Weapons Ban) before you consider this "panic" legitimate?

What would YOU be waiting for!?

Didn't realize they were banning ammo.

Answer: I wouldn't...

I've been stocking up for the better part of a year, I have just about all the ammo i 'need' I just cant go shooting because I cant replace it.

When the panic hits is not when you buy, you wait it out because you have prepared for such an event. I bet I haven't bought 6 boxes of ammo since the world lost its mind.
