    Reading off another site: http://www.thetreeofliberty.com/vb/showthread.php?t=161350

    "Just got back from the gun store I use, where I know the owner. He was advised by his supplier to order what ammunition he could, now. After the end of the month there will be a 10% price increase. He said he is already seeing supplies getting scarce."

    Now, I have heard the same reports from local shops where I live and even the big retail counter representatives who work the ordering and stocking.

    Some say it is election and other saying the government is on a buying spree!

    What is everyone else hearing?

    Thanks for the tip. I just got 500 rounds yesterday. Will get another to make it a thousand, and then another thousand for my other pistol.
    When you wonder why Homeland Security purchased 450,000,000 bullets (almost a half BILLION) at the expense of taxpayers, it's enough to
    put two and two together, what with Homeland Security ordering FEMA to purchase a MILLION body bags and 550,000 plastic coffins large
    enough to put two bodies in, plus Obama signing the NDAA bill making it lawful for any military personel to enter your home and drag you
    or your wife out of the house, no explanation, no charges, no legal representation, and place you or her in a FEMA prison camp indefinitely,
    prices of ammo will go up. There's a totalitarian wind coming. And you don't have to be a chess player to see the moves already in place.

    This seriously scares me. I'm too broke to stock up on anything, I have less than 1000 rounds total.

    This is 200% tin foil prophecy and I agree with you :) Adding everything together sure sounds like there's gonna be bloodshed.
    What ammo should WE be buying? Hollow points or FMJs?

    I had a guy at a large sporting goods store tell me that this rumor starts right before every election. Yes, ammo will get scarce but only because everyone is going to make a run on it. As for the 10%, supply and demand. :)

    I like to do my part as often as I can to support my local small businesses
    and help keep that demand up. I've heard "we're fresh out till Tuesday" quite a bit recently.

    Ammo is definitely scarce. My dad had lucky timing. He was at the store just as a "shipment" of a 9mm came in. The guy said it was the first he'd gotten in weeks. It was only 5 boxes of 100. Needless to say, we bought them out. They never made it to the shelf.

    The whole showing of the 550,000 plastic coffins and the reports on body bags were covered by 60 Minutes on national tv, (however the footage is now down and cannot be found. Sorry!)
    and further covered by others. The news is almost a year old. The report on the purchase of ammo by Homeland Security has been recent.

    I heard a year ago about the caskets and FEMA camps. The purpose of FEMA camps is debatable but the caskets, not really... We all know the purpose they serve and there's only one...

    Yeah but natural disasters kill people. Maybe they got a good deal on bulk? LOL

    Based on that idea then there's something they're not telling us if they can predict that a lot of people will die from natural disasters, also brings the question of weather manipulation.

    We live in times where everything is possible and a lot of things are conveniently thought to be impossible. You don't have to believe every conspiracy theory out there but the amount of money spent in that kind of stuff by the government is probably not a coincidence.

    Yeah I was responding to TCan saying "Yeah but natural disasters kill people." Are we expecting that many deaths from natural disasters? Just food for thought, nothing more ;)

    I was making a sarcastic joke. "Maybe they got a deal on bulk".

    More than half a million body bags to use on national security and natural disasters? They're stocked for the next 100 years.
