I got my daily allotment and left.
What a nice gig. They have been dusting empty shelves here since January. Especially 5.56 and .22, nothing.

Well here in Vegas they had to deny a large group buy recently at a gun show. There is some non-profit (not sure of name) that is buying ammo to destroy it in protest. I didn't believe it but I heard from the gun show myself at Southpoint hotel show...

Looks like police depts are having a hard time finding ammo also.

I just walked to the ammo section of Bass Pro to find some sob cleaning off the shelves. I just told him he's just as bad as DHS. I hope it sinks in.

I spent $50 at Duhnams just to get some 12 ga, copper solvent and 7.62x54R not going back there again.

Sounds like Obama-speak to me.
easy. collect your JIC stash....and from that point on....buy what you shoot. add that to NOT buying up EVERY box of ammo you see on the shelf, and then proceeding to stack it up in a closet, or underground bunker, or wherever it is you hoarders put your stacks ammo your ammo you don't use.....

and i don't recall asking you to share anything with me.

i am only wishing people would buy what they will use. even before this mess, my attitude never was "hey look....cheap ammo...i'm going to buy every singe box!" my attitude was buy what i will use.

honestly though, i see where you are coming from. i think its stupidity that gun owners feel the need to buy up every box of ammo they see, whether they intend to use it or not. but in the end, there is nothing i can do about the attitude of others. in order to keep shooting, it appears i MUST ALSO begin buying all the ammo, so no others can shoot and begin hoarding it as well. it appears the only way to continue enjoying the sport of shooting, is it to adopt the attitude of "i'm gonna get mine, screw everyone else." an attitude that is all too common these days.

thanks for your thoughts on the matter. i think i've said all i'm going to on the subject, and we can hopefully (and respectfully) agree to disagree.
