I'm just a housewife and I was in 4 different gun shops this weekend, doing a trade-in for a bigger gun and stocking up on ammo. Its crazy out there. [/quote] Were you able to get everything you wanted? Did you encounter empty shelves like I saw today? [/quote] Yes, I now have a big ass scary gun and a good supply of ammo. It was my way of exercising my 2nd amendment right, especially since where i live, police respond time is about 20 minutes. [/quote] Good...glad to know you'll be in good shape when it hits the fan. How'd the supply of guns and ammo look at the 4 shops you visited? [/quote] Well I got one of the last models of what I bought and all of the heavy hitting assalt rifles were sold out. There was one ar15 style, but it was only 9mm. They had just got a shipment of ammo, so I got what I needed. The prices have amost increased by 40% on some rifles since prior to 12/14. If you dont have a good supply of ammo and a back up for your main weapon, you're pretty much fucked. Its over. The prices are crazy. Now I am just a housewife, I cant imagine what the real gun nuts are doing, but i'll be damned if i'm going to be a victim. [/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.
