    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.

    Taxing ammo beyond a sales tax ain't gonna happen.

    I'm LE so I don't have to worry about it though :wiggle:

    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. :hs:

    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.

    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
    obama: ok
