    Ammo shortage.

    So , yesterday and last night there was a big ammo run on-line and locally. Most places are out of common calibers. Even SG ammo says they are not excepting any new orders.

    Toilet paper and ammo, guess these are the most needed things right now. Lol!

    why do you need ammo now vs a month ago?

    now is when you can sell ammo for an exorbitant price to the sheeple! LOL

    I don't need ammo, I have more than enough. Just thinking it was funny to put the two together, people buying up all of the ammo to protect their toilet paper. Lol!

    I've reached the point where I have more ammo than I have ammo cans to store it in. I'm currently panic buying ammo cans!

    Seen several articles in news on folks panic buying ammo and guns. Not sure if it will last long, but probably make some feel like they are doing something to protect themselves. I
    would think most of us that have been around for a while, seen the previous panics, would already have ammo on hand. I still have AR lowers I finished and never bought uppers
    for from those days (LOL). I am not sure how much ammo I have, but it is more than I will ever need. Maybe I can trade some for toilet paper (LOL)

    Couple weeks ago I picked up two cans of Saltech 7.62 from SGAmmo, came in nice new cans. Priced cans in the gunstore the other day, $20 each. The freebee paid for the shipping.

    With 7.5 Swiss up at $1/round I've been shooting my M1A more than the K31.

    One article I read yesterday pointed out that the second go around of Spanish flu in 1918 was the big killer. It got started in the winter/spring, tailed off in the summer, and then came back with a vengeance in the fall. Good thing to remember for those who prefer long term prudent stocking up over the mad panic buying.

    I put a pillowcase over my 40mm cans, and told the wife they were footstools.

    Now she wants to know why I have 19 footstools in my office...

Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other. - John Adams, 2nd U.S. President -

    Lower Than Dirt is at it again!





    I haven’t bought anything from them since their Sandy Hook gouging. And never will.
