Get the equipment and learn how to reload your own ammunition! It's not that hard!

Even the componenets are getting hard to find in some calibers.

Primers, powder and bullets are hard to find around these parts right now.

Here too. And when any stores DO get ammo in they limit purchases to 3 boxes per customer. Luckily I've bought over the years little by little and am pretty well set for the foreseeable future. Went to a gun show 3 weeks ago and it will probably be my last for quite a while. At least until the BS settles down.

So how about the DHS purchasing billions of rounds of ammo? Maybe they fear a shortage as well??

Gov't contracts are sancrosect. They get filled. Period. The profit margin on those make private sales look puny. Of course that MAY have a lot to do with the shortage. You never know. 2 billion rounds is a peepot load of ammo. I read somewhere that we didn't reach the 2 billion mark on rounds of ammo used until after the first 4 years of the Iraq war.

the feds are drying up supply purposely. you might save your brass, but primers are darn hard to get nowdays. If people didn't prepare in 2009 when this bozo was sworn in and put holder and napalitano in charge of all law enforcement, then they are a day late and a dollar short. A lot saw the commie frenzy starting and planned ahead.

This is a little like trying to buy a generator or a gas can during a hurricane. Progressive liberals are the best thing to happen to firearms and ammunition sales since Slick Willie. I bought stock in Ruger and Federal Ammunition. The world is ending, believe them and buy, buy, buy!! Hell, even the liberals are buying are buying guns by the thousands. By the way, Ruger makes some excellent, reasonably priced, handguns.

Hahaha you are so right I work with a couple of Obama voting liberals that are buying gun and ammo like you wouldn't believe. I keep fueling them on and they kept buying and buying. I wish I had bought stock too!

Luckily I stocked up a few years ago. Ammo now is a very desireable barter commodity. Literally worth its weight in gold. I saw at one of our local shops a box of .41 Colt going for $96.00 and change. Its an old cartridge and there are old Colts in circulation that still shoot it,but dang.$96.00 for a box of bullets......?

A few folks that I KNOW voted for Obama are denying it on a stack of Bibles..... I expect that trend to pick up. Too late to change anything but Obama's policies of late seems to have broken them from sucking eggs. I doubt they vote democrat again anytime soon.

It's OK if liberals can buy guns, and they are in droves, they just don't want YOU to have one. All very progressive thinking.

I voted for Obama the first time . Sure didn't want Jew Lieberman running things . And Sad Sarah Palin is just too much of a flake . She was against fruit fly research and didn't know that the research could help her own retadded kid . The lesser of two Jew evils . The choice has always been two jews or their proxies .
