Figured you all would like the info. Found this on arfcom
On a side note. I want to my local Walmart yesterday and looked over the counter to see what was left... almost nothing. Some dude walks buy and says "It's sad, ain't it?"
sounds about right
I am going to buy 5 bricks of Federal .22lr next time I see it.
I'd like to stockpile, too, but really I just want enough to go shooting
that is why I want the .22lr. I need 9 too though. Got ~600 7.62 and 440 7.62x54r coming in.
Law of supply and demand states that the ammo companies are probably hiring like fucking crazy right now to meet the demand. Expect a HUGE amount of ammo availability later this year/next year unless the Dems do something.
Theres so much 22lr here, also 12 and 20ga. but nothing else.
good thing i bought the cmmg .22lr kit
wishing I had gone with a .40, thats the only thing I ever seem them have consistantly...
Yeah. for some reason .40 is everywhere around here too.
Taxing ammo beyond a sales tax ain't gonna happen.
I'm LE so I don't have to worry about it though
almost as bad as a FUDD.
I'm concerned for everyone, don't get me wrong. I was just sayin...
I got 15 now
I hope some time within a year or so we all wake up from this bad dream and Obama will publicly state there will be no weapon bans or ammo taxing and all the munition and ammunition manufacturers will get all caught up on orders.
i have about 1,100-1,200 rounds of 9mm left i might buy another case in late april
Oh these are 100rd boxes
my store got 4 100rd bricks of .223 in yesterday. i was tempted to buy it and resell
I'm LE also, but I have to buy almost all of my own practice ammo. As in, probably 98-99% of it, since my department only gives practice ammo at official range sessions, which are basically a joke.
Besides, do you only shoot calibers that your department issues? or do you magically get a free pass on all ammunition taxes?
It'll affect us all, brotha.
The bottom HAS to fall out sooner or later...
snap caps + dry firing ftw
At some point you have to wonder if the usual special interest corporate greed lobbying will actually work in our favor. With gun and ammo sales through the roof, powerful corps like fucking walmart would squash any attempt at a ban or tax.
Obama: let's make a $.01 per round ammo tax
Walmart: um that will cost us approximately 11ty billion dollars, no
