Murders are up here in Houston, Chicago, NY, Los Angels, many others. I see the criminals are not suffering any ammo shortages.

Lot of liberals buying ammo and firearms. The reason there is a shortage of 45 is I some how way over did it on 45's. Seems like I had some idea that 45 was they only hand gun in the world.

In talking with my local small time gun shop owner last week he said it is between 60 & 70 percent liberal, first time buyers, and a lot of women. He is ex LEO and military so he knows what to look for. Most of the first time liberal buyers have never held a gun much less fired one.

We had a good time at the gun show last week laughing at the idiots. Many had never touched a gun in their lives. Kind of scary at times.

The Versa Max tactical I picked up just happened to be fully loaded with buckshot. Sitting there in the rack in the middle of the show with a full mag tube loaded. :vs_OMG: Guy just racked the bolt and cleared chamber. However the Versa doesn't dump another round unless you pull the trigger or hit the shell release button by the trigger guard. So he thought it was empty. You could clearly see the loaded shell in the tube.

Ammo prices through the roof and being bought up.

I saw 30 30 going $3 per round a few weeks back at a gun show. I think it will get worse.

That is the round that I have the least of, have two 1950's Winchester 94's, bought them for $5.00 each, needed to be restored.

Did the restoration including new barrels, shot both a total of 4 rounds each,

put them in a safe, been there ever since, no intensions of ever using them.

I bought a thousand rounds of 150 Gr. Winni silver tip from a dealer going out of business for $100.00.

Now this was at least 10 years ago, I consider the 1K of ammo a nothing count.

That is why I shipped 40 rounds of 30-30 to FL to someone. Gave it to him. He purchased a 30-30 for grandson and none to be had at all.

I don't do shortages..I don't create shortages....I've seen half a dozen and it didn't take me long to figure out there's gonna be more. Its a simple fix.....When there's plenty...buy extra! I can go to the range 3 days week indefinitely and shoot alone!

Think it's bad now?
Biden said that "On Day One" he will sign an EO banning all importation of firearms and AMMO.
Think about it - how much product on shelves comes from overseas? 50% ? Not just Wolf or Tula, but S&B, Norma, and others with "American" brand names like Herters.

Another reason is greedy bastards who buy everything they see in hopes of reselling it at jacked up prices at gun shows.
Plus, Joe Six Pack who is convinced he needs 5,000 rounds of 9MM for his Glock (the only gun he owns).

Joe Six Pack, Joe One Pack, Joe Twenty-Four Pack, Joe Any Pack does need 5,000 rounds for his Glock or any other gun he may own. The only people who have a problem with Joe Pack having 5,000 rounds are socialist politicians and shit-heels who don't have 5,000 rounds of ammo for their own guns.

If you want to take a road trip up to Tallahassee I have a case of Geco .45 that I'm selling for $500. I loaded up on popular calibers four years ago and I'm now selling off to fund a new boat. I've let go of all the 9mm I care to spare but also have 5.56 and .223 that's going to my LGS as soon as the next round of stimulus checks go out.

It's all about timing:tango_face_wink:

I don't have a six pack - more like a spare tire - but I have 5K rounds...plus :)

Hoarder? nah...prepared...multiple flavors too! Lowest is .22, highest is 9mm...then some .45, lots of 5.56...a bit 'o .308...lots of 12 ga varieties - some very scary looking ones I would NEVER want to get hit with!

All resting in my dehumidified controlled garage...shooting tomorrow! Who's in?

Peace,
Michael J.
