Notice how the prices for lead shotgun shells has gone through the roof? I like to shoot squirrel and dove with lead shot 3 inch magnum. I found a place on the internet where they make their own shells. 10 guage lead $23 a box of 25 any number shell you want. Twelve guage 3 inch magnum about $15 a box. They shoot at 1500 feet per second, and the average shell shoots at about 1200. It is called Sporting Ammo and their number is 8773768308 Real nice people. Takes about a week or a little longer to get the ammo in. I didn't ask about pistol or rifle ammo, because A box of 243 shells will kill me 18 to 20 deer. and I have plenty of 22 bullets on hand as 223 and 77mm mag. I didn't ask about steel shot, because I have plenty of that I got on sale at Wal Mart for half off last year. But with Obama in office, the prices will just keep going higher and higher. Some places were selling 10 guage lead shot for $25 for a box of five.

.22 bullets( short, longs and magnums) are virtual impossible to find here. One shop owner told me two gentlemen bought up his whole inventory of .22's, specifically.
When they were backing out the parking lot, he observed a DOJ plate on the car.

Federal law enforcement has expanded greaty. I personally don't believe that's a necessity or a good thing when illegals enter this country at will. If the expansion were focused on illegal immigration, I could better understand and acknowledge the necessity for the increase in numbers.
As for the federal government and drug enforcement at our borders, that is an age old futile attempt at desparation.
One in seven law enforcement officers now work for the federal government.
As this article states, it's not the sheer volume of ammunition they are purchasing( 10 billion rounds in ten months) but the volume of officers in question.

Can anyone imagine 10 billion rounds bought up by the government? This all goes with the great "steal our gun rights" campaigne that's been going on for months. The "Establishment' is trying to make us think there is no hope for gun owners keeping their rights. Isn't that obvious by now? Hey the mass media is in on it. And when A- holes like them push a story so much, you can bet there is an agenda behind the curtain. All I know is, I'm not scared anymore of anarchy, rebellion, civil war, martial law, etc. Let them bring it, but I'd rather things got better in a peaceful way instead. Wouldnt you? I mean if the sh!t hits the fan, it's going to hit real hard and fly all over the place. I for one, would rather figure out another way than to have to clean up all that sh!t

I'm in total agreement with all your statements.
If you read the article there does indeed seem to be an agenda. An agenda by the present government. The increase in the federal police force coupled with the removal of publicly available ammo from ordinary law abiding citizens reeks of conspiracy on a level never before seen in government in the united states of America.
Makes you wonder what obama's got up his sleeve that makes the goverment fear the people or in their minds the people's reprisals.

They should be buying bigger than 22's if they wish to stop a person, although my former girlfriend got murdered by a 22 in Kaplan back in the 80's around Northside Exxon. Such a pretty and sweet girl. Then he wounded someone else with the same gun, and it was a pistol, not a rifle.

223 bullets are impossible to find. They are over a dollar a piece now if you can find them. I have about 1000 plus some extra 22 bullets if someone needs some. 200 rounds of 22 bullets I donated at the Lions Club auction brought $70. I can remember when they were a penny a piece. I also have a bunch of 243 bulltes too. OBAMA is the problem and the constitution says we have the right to bear arms, but does not mention ammunition to the best of my knowledge.

I will tell you this about a 22. I have shot possums and racoons in the head in a trap from two feet away and not killed them. I wouldn't rely on a 22 to kill a person, but to each his own. At night, it is hard to put a bullet exactly where it should be placed, especially if you are shooting at a moving target. A 357 or a 38 works a lot better or a shotgun with a sawed off barrell, just long enough for it to be legal. Duhon's sawed off a barrel on my 16 guage because I had an extra barrel. Good gun for the wife, light, without a big kick like the ten guage I use for protection. I shot a deer last year with my 243 and he ran 50 yards with a collapsed lung and dislocated shoulder. Same deer with a 22 would have run away never to be found. We frequently practice the if someone breaks in the house drill. I go first and my wife stays behind and covers for me.

Mrs. Culdesac claims to be better than me and could use the extra cash. But at my farm, I frequently practice. Distances from 50 to 300 yards with a big backstop for safety. If someone wants to practice or teach their child to shoot a gun, and I think the person is civilized, I will help and let them go out there, if I am there too for liability reasons.

When she got murdered. About 25 years ago. They caught the killer, and he is serving life. She had a closed coffin. I wish I could have seen her one last time. Lucky shot 22 bullet right through the heart.

I only met Mr. Francis P breifly and he sure don't look or sound like a rigger to me. But then again I'm only a fitter.
