The 2008 panic that cleaned out most pistol ammo but left 9mm on the shelf. Since I am so damn smart, I bought me a Beretta 92 so that I could continue to practice when .45 ACP disappears.

Preparing for things like the panic buying is somewhat like fighting a war. All armies prepare to fight the "last" war and are never prepared for the next one.

Anyone got a good source for 9mm?

I asked him if he thought this was just a temporary thing or the way it was going to be for the foreseeable future. He was NOT optimistic about the future.

So are we ever going to get that 51st state or what?
