Sure looked like urban warfare training to me. Rather disturbing scene for a rather laid back town. The one good thing is that Josephine county has a Constitutional sheriff that is very happy to have armed citizens. He makes sure the good citizens applying for CCW licenses get them as quickly as possible. Thank God for LEO's like him.
Seen the very same thing in Central Florida 4 a.m. Monday morning. Militarized policemen, -a small army of them; plus several helicopters overhead,
as every bank had three patrol cars with lights ablazing guarding their doors. It was a routine drill. But to me it was a warning for '...whom the bells toll.'
Me thinks it tolls at our future!

Default My .02

At our December Gun show right after obama was elected, The ammo was sold out and most of the semi auto tactical rifles & semi auto pistols as well. If he is re elected, we expect the same.
At our show last month, the rep from the largest ammo dealer in our show said they were seeing shortages and shop owners coming into shows and doing a buyout in one purchase. We normally get two 24' trucks full for each show. This time we got 8 pallets. Some of the prices were reasonable. 7.62X39 steel case, 1,000 rounds @ $209 . Pistol ammo was higher.

The reason ammo prices are going up is shipping costs. Lead is heavy, and gas prices are high.

I have a good friend in Grants Pass Oregon. He is unaware that his town is becoming a center for the Violent new world order. I agree with him I would like to hear more facts on these APC and Urban militias. In the mean time being calm and cool may be the best answer. Facts please?
