Well Ya'll,

I have been saying all along that there is no shortage after the election but last friday sure does it.

It is absolutely pandemonium!!!!

For those of you who is still mopping around thinking about buyimg a firearm or planning to buy those ammo. I got one thing to say to you GOOD LUCK.

Most gun stores are either not selling their guns in hopes of making a profit when the prices goes up or they are absolutely out of stock. This goes for ammo.

If you have been thinking about buying some ammo, well dont think, just run as fast as you can to the store and grab whatever that is left.

This goes for all high capacity magazines. By high I meant anything more than 10 rounds. for both handguns and rifles. (Pretty sure the next ban going to be on magazines for both handguns and rifles over 10 rounds)

I am stocked up and does not need anymore but man it would really be bad for those who has a gun but no ammo or better yet for those who is thinking about buying a firearm but yet havent and still holding sticks and stones. Good Luck.

By the way, we are all over the news!!!! Apparently, preppers are gun crazies who hoard guns and ammo. Bad publicity..............

Good Luck

I have check out two local shops...One I had order 2 Colt New Agent Mags, A already have a few. They had gone through 300 plus 30 round AR mags over the weekend and still have pallets to restock shelves of this and that.

Another local shop I watched a couple max their Cards plus a chunk of cash for 2 Glocks, a Ruger SR15, Burris Scope (like you need that on a 16 inch AR), some other accessories and no Ammo as the store was sold out. Ouch is about all I could think.

Talking to a friend and getting serious about a CCW Permit we found a class that would hold it locally if we had 5-6 people attend.....By the next morning we had 20+ looking to attend.

In the past few months the Fedex guys have been dropping off shipments that were on the heavy side Marked ORD something and I have a few more coming.

Tell me about it. I'm relatively comfortable with the ammo and gun preps I have now, but I'm still trying to top off a few ammo cans that aren't quite full yet. Not happening, at least not at the prices I'm seeing. I'm also trying to help a friend get a good tactical style rifle now; that's a freaking nightmare and a half.

the boxes were marked ormd, means the had ammo in them.
my local gun shop sold out of all ak's ar's ammo and mags today.
had a hundred of each on order for months, they got 4 ak's in today, never got out of boxes or off the counter. were gone in 15 min.
i got stuck working the counter for four hours which i detest doing.
it was almost impossible to get nics checks done, the wait was unreal. customers were 4 deep at the counter holding what they wanted to buy.
all the ak and ar mags went out too.
the phone would not stop ringing, had to take it off the hook to be able to do nics.

Dang, I'm sure glad I'm already stocked up on ammo. Stopped by the LGS conveniently located 1.5 minutes from the house and picked up two boxes of .308 Win and a couple more Mini-14 mags, just because I believe in supporting the local gun shop.

Bought a few more Pmags last Saturday. I new they were going to go fast. CTD has them now for $59.95. Lol, bought all mine for $12. People will spend the money though. Wish I had an FFL and plenty of stuff to sell. Bet a lot of people will be retiring early after all the panic buying.

Man aint that the truth. My nephew for the lat couple of years hasnt been listening to all the warning I have been telling him. Yesterday he tried to get a AR reciever on line and they are either on Back Order for the next couple of months or he cant even get through on the phone to order! Went to several gun shops today to try and get him one. They are all sold out and waiting for further shipments and have a waiting list! If your looking for mags many places have already been stripped clean. Mags that were going for about 20 bucks a couple of weeks ago are now being marked up to about 80.00 bucks at CTD's local outlet! Talk about price gouging...but hey thats the free market and the early bird gets the worm right? You cant wait till the last minute and then go down and expect to get things at last years bargin prices in the middle of a crisis and panick buying.

At several of these places, the ammunition on the shelf was slim pickings. What was available as far as the "popular" calibers was premium loads and at a even more premium price! Reloading components were in good supply but I suspect that wont be the case long!

Bet my nephews eyes are now wide open and I bet he understands now what it was I have been talking about the last few years!

I only need to figure out what to say to friends who come whining to me in time how they can't find anything now that they are finally ready to get that rifle and that ammo, and some mags the way things are going. I guess I could go with the tried and true, "I told you so" and throw in a "dipshit" to be nice, but it's so passe'. :)
