    I wish that all of us here could someday go out to lunch together. Now that would be entertainment!

    Looks like the Pennsylvania governor made a compromise, as reported here:

    Although NM is now explicitly saying gun shops must close (that is new since the initial stay home "instruction"), the local place is open today. Sheriff probably won't enforce the "instruction" in this case, but the staties will eventually. I think I'll go buy some 44 if he has it, got to support the businesses willing to take risks.

    May still be a moot point. NOT that I need ammo, but checking my local Rural King on a lark, I see they have ... NOTHING. At least no .45acp or .223/5.56!

    Sent buncha rifles and ammo with my older son a while back, so I guess I could squeeze some stuff in again. Still pretty full up though, but you know it's like Jello...

    True that.

    Everybody sez, "Awww... Thunderbolt suck." Or mfgs. say, "DON'T use 'em."

    My thought is, if my .22 can't HANDLE 'em... I need a BETTER .22!!!

    Worst I've ever seen on Thunderbolts is a few duds on the ground out of a big tub of them. Them guys at the range who spend 10 minutes lining up a shot and breathing just so don't think much of Thunderbolts, but I wouldn't kick them out if they are the last thing on the shelf. A round that goes bang most of the time is still better than an empty chamber.

    ^^^ LOL


    J, you know that im not even a take second to shoot type of guy.

    & even on my low budget scale that stuff is junk. literally had bullets fall out in the box/bucket from those, others that were loose in the neck & could spin. thats on top of all the misfires.

    its low end ammo that i never want to bet on. we bought 25,000 rounds of it because we had so many people coming by trying out the Razors & then playing with the cans. ended up giving several thousand rounds of it away to visitors: "hey wanna take a sammy bag of this home with you for free? better yet, take this cute little bucket."

    makes your gun look bad no matter how good it is when you are chasing it around from person to person clearing jams & making sure theres not a bullet in the pipe halfway down.

    & man that stuff is DIRTY!


    but for those of you that have good luck with it? AWESOME for you! there is literally tons of it available dirt cheap. You guys can have it & i'll stick with anything else. :-)


    TODAY is gonna be a great day for shooting & all this talk of it means im gonna have to go make some sodas explode with the TEC Tac Econocans!

    (shameless plug.. LOL bad sdk)
    say what you mean & mean what you say!
