    Just wait until all of these new gun owners find out that there is no ammunition to be had anywhere. Oh well, maybe they can trade that new firearm in for some TP.

    Ammo will get you through times of no money, better than money will get you through times of no ammo.

    Was at Rural King today trying to buy one of their LAST TWO AR15 lowers in stock when the system crashed.....

    ......so I put the lower on layaway and told the frazzled girl behind the counter that I'd come back later next week........

    .....I don't think that's the reaction she was expecting, because she smiled wide and said THANK YOU!!
    If you're blue and you don't know where to go to, why don't you go where fashion sits......PUTIN ON A RITZ!!!

    Had a neighbor mention to me about 4-6 weeks ago about buying a gun and wanted to know IF I would go with him to look, feel, and suggest?
    I said sure just let me know about when and we can set a date.
    so I am out walking yesterday and he comes out of his house and says--yea wait for it-- so can we go look for gun this week?
    I explained to him sure if you want but understand the available supply is almost non existant, prices ae high and certainly choices are reduced, plus depending on caliber you might not be able to find ammo anywhere!
    he just looked kind of sheepish and said yea I saw on the news where everyone was buying them!
    Look up Bad Timing in the Dictionary if you want to see this guys picture!

    Another daily update from my favorite LGS. HE did get a large shipment of new pistols in Thursday and Friday, but this was stuff he ordered a month ago. So his shelves are full of 9mm pistols again. He is out of 9mm ammo, except a small hold back for his friends. I dropped by yesterday to pick up the M&P 2.0 9mm, and spent the afternoon with him. His Dad was working the counter, so I didn't offer to help. I was there 3 hours - in that time he sold to one family 4 pistols and one 856 revolver, sold another 4 9mm pistols to other walk ins. He had 3 customers who knew nothing about purchasing requirements, all three left without a gun.
    The big family sale and NICS. Online access kept dropping or giving 5XX errors, dial in access was either hold for 20 minutes and then get disconnected, or no answer. After 2.5 hours of dialing in, they finally got an open connection and were able to get all 5 NIC checks completed during that one session. I did a count before he sold what I described above, he had about 30 9mm pistols in stock Taurus/Glock/S&W/ and an assortment of used odd balls. I discussed with him about putting some on armslist, but he said he has enough business dealing with walk ins.

    There are "four boxes" that can be employed to resist the downfall of America, the ballot box, the soap box, the jury box and, lastly, the ammo box.
