[quote:Don'tBeAfraid:MV8yMTEwMzU4XzM1NTc4MzY4X0FEM0JDMUMy] [quote:CowgirlK:MV8yMTEwMzU4XzM1NTc4Mjk5XzVDNjY4N0FD] I was in Bass Pro last night. Lots of guns, not much ammo. There was not a 9 or 22 round in the store. They had a couple of boxes of 45 and a fair amount of 38. They said they are getting deliveries but it's gone as soon as they get it. Even accessories were getting low. Only a couple of mag loaders on the shelf. I didn't check for cleaning supplies either. Then I started talking to some guy who told me that he and his buddies were spending the weekend in their RV on a ammo finding mission. They drove to Texas from Louisiana hitting all the ammo stores along the way. He said it was slim pickins and most places are totally out of 9 and 22. You know its getting real when people are driving around in RV's loading up! [/quote] There was a terrible problem finding ammunition when it was apparent Obama was going to get elected. I can remember going around to buy a box here or there(because that's all you could find), pallets coming in and not being stocked on the shelf, and immediately people scarfing up many boxes. It took awhile to find ammunition regularly then and for them to catch up, and lots of specialty stuff was on backorder. [/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.
