    Default Ammunition shortage

    Anyone else feeling the pains of the ammunition shortage? All I want is 100 rounds for my .243 and maybe 150 rounds for my .357. Think I could find them for less than a dollar a round?
    Hubby is having a horrible time even finding ammo for his .40.

    Anyone know of a wholesale place online?

    We are having a hard time with 32's.
    Walmart is sold out before they hit the shelves.
    The local gun stores are rationing them.

    Call up our pals up in Washington, I'm sure they'd love to sell you some of the millions of rounds they are buying up for God only knows what.

    They're buying up about 5 rounds for every man, woman, and child in this country. Kinda makes one go "hmmmmm", doesn't it?

    ETA: There's some black helicopters landing in the back yard. Wonder what's up?

    It's scary is what it is. My local paper had an article on it.
    What does home land security need all that ammunition for. ?
    Freaky.

    I was talking to my grandpa about it today. They're stocking up with something like 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition and storing it in salt mines in Nevada. Yikes. Makes you wonder what they know that we don't.

    It's for the training of their agents don't you know?

    I don't think they're planning a mass execution like some of the super paranoid people are suggesting. I just think that they know that they won't be able to pass any insane gun control laws so they're saying "haha keep your guns but good luck using them!"

    Hubby and I shoot IDPA and reload our ammo. We can't find primers!! Powder is tough to get but primers are killing us.

    anyone have a large magnum pistol primers they want to get rid of? If so...shoot me a PM.

    that's exactly what I commented to my husband tonight. They're cornering the market on ammo since they know they'll never be able to issue a ban. Now if one can find the ammo they need, who can afford it?

    Tin foil hats are fitting a little tighter than usual, aren't they?

    I love how I'm pretty much called a nut job because I dare question the actions of what our government is doing.

Please tell me, Obama is using the 1.6 billion rounds for target practice on the weekends.

    Dude, I have no idea. But it's a little nuts to jump right to "They're planning to execute the populace!", don't you think?

    And I'm the crazy one because I want shells for my guns that I use for hunting, and my pistol that I carry for self defense.
    No, wanting ammunition and being bummed that it's harder to get right now doesn't make you crazy. Being crazy makes you crazy. (I've seen no evidence of your crazy, but I don't know you, so...)

    Please tell me, Obama is using the 1.6 billion rounds for target practice on the weekends.
    A) It's President Obama. B) You seem confused about how government works.

    AffirmedHope DIDN'T say she thought they were planning mass execution. She said contrary to what conspiracists think....read for comprehension.
