Tale of my trip to a chain sports/gun store. I thought you guys were joking...
Okay, so, on my way home I decided to stop by a chain sporting goods / gun store. Not Dicks, not Wal-Mart.

All the "military looking" rifles had been taken off the racks.

Wall to wall people, standing in line to even look at the ammunition. People were finding the caliber(s) they were looking for and just scooping boxes of it off the shelves. Workers brought out a pallet of shotgun ammo and were trying to get in and restock.

All kinds of talk about "buy it while you can" etc. One guy told me he'd come from Wal-Mart and they were sold out of most nearly everything.

Got to the checkout and saw multiple people in lines with several boxes of ammo in hand.

It was nuts!

I will never buy anything from WalMart or Dick's again. The Dick's here had the worst employees anywhere. They would act like you were bothering them if you had a question.

Fuck those places and any others that pull that shit. I will make my own moral decisions not fucking WalMart.

bought a few hundred rounds at Wally world the other night while picking up a few things. They didn't have jack for ammo, mostly empty spots where the ammo is supposed to be, was Just lucky they had the caliber I wanted.

Since Sandy Hook has nothing whatsoever to do with Americans having their own guns, which is their right, it looks like Obama - who knows what really came down - is unscrupulously getting ready to put the country under lockdown, for his own ends.

Actually, Israel did him a big favor.

Israel? wtf

You have to admit, there has never in history been such a strong move to get their anti-gun agenda pushed on us. After 9/11, we now know that there are those in charge with the power to do great harm against many Americans without any remorse.

I'm sure they think it is for the greater good, which is doubly scary because a person can do many hideous things when they believe it is for the greater good, let alone someone with the amount of power that this cabal has!

unfortunately I heard today that they will take them by passing laws and regulations forcing every gun to be insured by a huge amount of money. Just like they have done all around the country with Pit Bull dogs. You can't afford the insurance , so, by default you can't have the dog. Same thing will happen with guns
The only ones that will have them will be the lawless criminals, law abiding people follow the law.. It really sucks doesn't it.

I bought the last box of 9mm ball, it was $13.99

Some 12g 2 3/4 #4 (for Turkey season) @ $12.99 a box.

Some .30-06 fmj (for sighting in new scope - deer season) $18 a box.

Didn't check any other calibers as it was so crowded I was doing good to get to anything! But in short it looked like the prices hadn't really gone (yet) up so much as they were running out of stuff.
