    The Local Gun Shop told me this morning about a possible ban coming. Black guns, hi-cap mags, tactical shotguns, ect.

    Ammo price increaces. 10-15% this coming week

    Ket-tec Sub 200, 40S&W. Almost impossible to find, offered me a NIB one for $400. Also 2 Glock 22 20rd mags, $50 ea. These seem very difficult to find also.

    Rumors of a change in ammo to make it have a 3 month shelf life......nothing definate

    I ask because I'm interested in a Beretta 96A1, Beretta CX4 Storm, Kel-tec sub 2000, (a replacement for the Storm cause it costs $800), and hi cap mags for both. I don't want to be left out in the cold if a ban shows up, but funds are limited right now.......Any thoughts? Thanks

    Tell your local shop that they should pass out tin foil hats too.....

    1. There is going to be an increase of around 7% in ammo soon. The dealers that I frequent aren't sure exactly when, but it's coming.

    2. An outright ban on anything will take time, and bans of some sort are always being floated by the anti-gun crowd. A ban may occur, but with the current congress being split, I really don't see a ban in the near future. I wouldn't buy "to beat a ban" just yet. It does make a sales tool, but I'm not real impressed with selling that way.

    Just my opinion. I make no accuracy guarantees....

    There's a lot of speculation going around regarding what's going to be available or not, whether standard capacity mags will be reduced to a maximum of 10 rounds or less, will ammo prices rise, will there be shortages again, etc. A lot of info being passed around is from a guy who heard from so and so who heard from....Bottom line it should be business as usual. You want, you buy.

    It would be impossible to introduce ammo that has only a 3 month shelf life under current technology. That's all they are is rumors.

    The Second Amendment and all it entails is continually under assault. Don't expect that to change anytime soon. It's an unfortunate fact of life under Big Brother.

    If you desire something and can afford it, by all means buy it now. However, there is no need to panic, just be sensible and get what you think you'll need.

    Same thing happened in 2009, nothing really happened but it scared people crazy. All the ammo was bought up by hoarders.

    So, what about the Kel-Tec? Anyone got an opinion on that? Seems like on all the guns I have or am interested in, no ones got any opinion......

    Yeah, maybe I should cool my panic impulse buying urges. Gun show coming early April, maybe there will be something on sale there.

    I haven't personally seen the Sub 2000 in action but from the reviews & common folklore it seems to be an awesome setup especially considering the use of Glock & Beretta mags. I wish they'd come out with a .45 but the 9mm & .40 S&W will drop a bad guy or Bambi inside a football field. The fact that you can fold it in half & stuff it in your backpack makes even better. So to answer your question in a nutshell, I'd get one.

    Which led to the ammo drought.

    The NRA is no safety net. In fact they care less about some gun rights as opposed to others, but that won't stop them from asking you for money every 3 weeks with scare tactics and fear mongering.

    You want to stop weapon bans, you vote for ANY person who fits these criteria:

    1) Is NOT a career politician

    2) supports 2A and is pro Constitution, regardless of party

    3) is not an incumbent with a spotty recording of voting

    You vote incumbents out, you vote for new blood that are Constitutionally minded and you stop "banking" on stupid groups like the NRA that have grown out of their usefulness.

    ^^Thumbs up^^

    I did get an e-mail from Natchez that states that Federal is going to have a price increase coming May 1st. Keep looking for prices to increase on everything as this economy is ripe for higher than normal inflation. Much of the increases have to do with oil prices.

    If I owned a widget shop and some gullable person came to look at widgets, there just might be a widget ban coming soon. Who knows? Some widgets are rare and some widgets make legislators nervous.

    The NRA is a joke these days.

    That wasn't because of fear of a ban, that was fear of the socialist, piece-of-pelosi that ACORN elected to office. :mad:

    The key is to get people out and vote. Sending a check to the NRA and thinking you are doing your part is feel good prevention, at best.

    Wayne La Pierre made almost $900,000 as a salary in 2004! That does not include all the perks that comes with his "position".

    I don't know about you, but $900,000 is a hell of a lot of money that could be better spent in getting people to the polls armed with knowledge instead of paying a guy to ignore the real issues, shake a few hands and write a monthly blog to the converted masses. :rolleyes:

    Cost of ............

    I don't think the word hoarders fits in this type of situation, There will be Bans and shortages. Hopefully you'll have the time and cash to remedy the problem. But don't forget you maybe buying all this for Naught, when Big Brother tells every one to turn in their weapons...:eek:

    Hate to say it but peeps can panic buy all they want but im 99.9% sure that if the government bans something, a "grandfathered in" policy will more than likely not be in the cards just MHO

    Sounds like a great fear of loss tactic
