    The Next Run on Ammo

    Did wallyworld and kroger start an inadvertent run on ammo?

    I was in Academy yesterday picking up some 7.62x39. 20 to 50 rounds from time to time builds a nice stash. There was a large number of people on the ammo isle picking over, what to me, looked like well picked over shelves. This is just before lunch on a friday and I was a bit surprised at the number of people in the firearm section. I know that people are getting ready for the rifle season here, but there was a limited supply of the lower priced 7.62x39, 5.56 and .223. Empty shelves for .308 and 30.06 too, but like I said, people are ramping up for the rifle hunting season. Are we seeing the next big run on ammo? All it would take is the dems start to talk about restrictions on "assault rifle" ammo to make it a full fledged run.

    I don't currently shoot any rifle calibers.... but even though I don't want to patronize Walmart, I did pick up 250 rounds of 9mm they had as it is cheaper. It was also convenient for stocking up. I don't have an Academy, Bass Pro, or Cabelas closer than an hours drive.
    I have a good stock now and can avoid a run on ammo....I also can offer on my LGS website in bulk at reasonable prices with no shipping charges. That is where I'll go now.

    I get the impression; the new anti-gun strategy to target individual states versus a federal ban prevents a run on anything. When a state makes it "illegal" to own something; all potential "run" buyers are removed by that state. Federal bans, in the past, typically had a deadline and everything before that was grandfathered. The bumpstock ban can not be included in this scenario; due to it being an ATF policy change; not a law passed through legislation. Although legislation gave them the power to do so...

    When serious legislative talk starts at state and federal levels, that's when the next run will begin. If nothing happens, it will end as quickly as it begins.

    I think my point was missed; you can't have a run if you can't legally own it in your state...

    I think that it actually started prior to the retailers doing their virtue signalling. The recent incidents lit the same fire that caused the stores to react. Modern Sporting Rifles and components are actually still stable with prices rather soft. I suspect that people are leery of buying if existing firearms are banned and not grandfathered like in '94. There may not be "pre-ban" equipment.

    Not sure how the next run on guns and ammo will be as both sides are trying to flank us. Dems going the normal route but repubs joining them along with retailers virtue signalling. I always try to pick up some here and there so I'm good whenever. I suggest everyone do the same.

    There really should be no run on ammo from people in their late 20's or older as they all have lived through shortages before and should have built up a good ammo larder to not be caught flat footed again. At least that works in theory, but we all get complacent ammo is readily available. I have enough to feel completely satisfied to live out the rest of my life.

    One factor that could cause a run on ammo is the left hurrying to arm up, as I'm sure the fringe left already is. I imagine the puppet master is urging them to do so as well as encouraging policy change by aiding some of the shooters in some of these shootings.

    All I know is, judging by the gun show sales I was watching today, including my own purchase, I'd say that people are expecting a run soon. In fact, we may be on the starting fringes of one right now, in some areas of the country.
