[quote:Dr. Lecter:MV8yMTEwMzU4XzM1NTg5MjQ4X0E0MjMzOUMz] I regularly work the gun shows in SE Arizona, selling t-shirts and survival supplies. Over the last year, I have watched people buying ammo in amazing numbers, with each new month dwarfing the last. This one guy in particular who does the Crossroads shows comes with a loaded semi full of various calibers, especially heavy with .223 and 7.62x39 and is leaving empty. His tables are non-stop from when the show first opens until he runs out of ammo. Prices on certain weapons has jumped, particularly the AKs and ARs... and now even the SKS'. All the other venders, the t-shirts, memorabilia, jewelry and leather goods are all slumping because the people are coming specifically to buy ammo, clips, and weapons. The survival gear and LTSF (long-term storable food) is still selling pretty consistently though. The people have sensed this coming, and I have witnessed their response. This IS the facts. [/quote]
Today this gun thing got real for me.
I was in PA today and went to BPS and Cabela. I was stunned.
At BPS they were almost totally sold out of ALL handguns. CASES and CASES were totally empty. GONE. They were totally out of 9mm, 357 ammo and just about everything else. I took pictures but since there's people in them I'm not going to post them. Staff says they can't get anything else at this point, their suppliers are out. There was a sizable crowd scanning the empty cases and shelves. Salespeople I talked to said they are convinced that if anyone tries to take weapons from Americans there's going to be a civil war. They said they're seeing people who used to be anti-gun want to get one because they're afraid of what they think is happening.
Later, I stopped at Cabelas. This place is right off the highway and very visible from a distance. The crowd there was even bigger. They still had a few --
--handguns but nothing left that was a carry piece, imo. I'm sure they were depleted of the little they had by the end of the day. As for ammo, they were limiting to 10 box max. There was almost nothing left.
i'm finding it hard to convey how real all seems to be becoming.
