    Old guy ammo hours.

    Just like a lot of the grocery stores, sporting goods stores should establish special hours for the elderly shoppers. They would restock their shelves and let the old guys have a chance to buy some ammo before those heavily muscled twenty year olds start carrying case after case of 9mm to their pickups. Respect your elders.

    My wife bought two cases just after they turned on the proverbial fan, but before the price gouging started. A good woman can’t be under valued.
    I don’t know what my spirit animal might be, but I’m pretty sure it has rabies.

    Stores here are implementing that policy already.
    I'm not talking about ammo.
    If you don't have enough ammo already you haven't been paying attention.
    I've had enough ammo for 15 years. Next move will be to buy a forklift.
    But Safeway and other grocery stores have two hours, usually 7AM to 9AM twice a week reserved
    for folks over 60 to do their shopping.
    Wife and I went last week and it was great.
    No one was uptight or angry or grabbing 47 pallets of TP paper.
    Everyone was polite and cordial and the only complaints I heard were about the news media, politicians
    and all the sheep panicking. It was really nice and much appreciated.
    Remember:
    Life is short.
    Make sure you spend as much time as possible
    on the internet arguing with strangers about politics.

    Just like the last big ammo run of 2013-2014 after the Sandy Hooks, Aurora Theater and one other mass killing, big box stores will begin to put limits on how much ammo they will sell one individual. For a while in the last ammo run, some stores were limiting one box of center fire ammo per customer at a point. Walmart was pretty much at three boxes of any ammo. I think Academy was later at two boxs of any ammo other than bird shot for shotgun shells. The shortage of pistol and rifle centerfire ammo lasted less than 4 months, but .22 rimfire ammo was another story. At a point, you could buy 9mm ammo at a cheaper price per round than .22 rimfire.
    A black market developed for .22 rimfire that lasted over 2 years.

    I'm an old fart also, don't feel old at all at 72, although those blue pills help a lot!

    They say with wisdom comes age, and then we went through a smaller panic on guns and ammo when everyone thought hillary was going to be coronated.

    Point is, if wisdom comes with age....how did you get caught flat footed on ammo?

    To be fair, we had a lot of old farts in here who got caught flat footed in the ammo panic of 2013-1014, on both ammo and reloading components, but I wasn't one of them. Wish we didn't live over 300 miles apart. I'm ready to part with quite a bit of range ammo, but I know I can make some money selling it to local gun shops.

    Ding, ding, ding! Winner, winner, chicken dinner! You know the older we guys get, the crabbier we get. As we we age, we get an enlarged sense of entitlement (among other things). We see young guys getting all the hot chicks. They shouldn't get all the ammo too. Sometime ago I stopped buying green bananas. If I can't use 'em today, I'm not sure I'll be here tomorrow. In our "ute" we shot 44 magnums. Now we're down to 22LR. Show some pity here guys.

    Honestly- since everything pretty much shut down, restaurants, movie houses, Bars (especially) I have been getting in my 3 mile walks everyday, sometimes twice a day, and I have cleaned/resized every stinkin piece of brass that I have, reloaded every caliber that I own to the point its now sitting in my floor of the man cave and I have ordered more projectiles!
    the bottom line of my madness was the closing of the topless bars, now my only place of refuge is the gun shop/range.
    its beginning to get serious now!

    Hmmm. How do they slide those mugs of beer across the bar with no top on it?

    At the store where I work, it would make more since to have under 60 hours rather than older folks. The majority of our customers are medicare eligible, or were before the panic set in. Now we have morons in masks getting pissed when I ask them to remove a mask to look at their face for the ID check. I'm NOT selling a masked man a gun, sorry.

    Let's not forget the man in the mask at the grocer made from a horse blanket, secured with two large strips of duct tape. I'd like to see him take it off!

    My dad always said the only time you could have too much ammo is if you were trying to swim!
