Anyone buy ammunition online? - Page 5

post #41 of 50

Panics always serve very well for the vendors. It's in their interest to spread the panic. Prices shoot through the roof, demand shoots through the roof, profits shoot through the roof.

The gun industry must be delighted with the current political situation in the US. They're making tens of millions of dollars, more likely hundreds of millions, more than they would have if the other party had won the election.

A billion bullets a day is a LOT of money, especially when prices can be increased at the same time.

I was told it's political, because they don't know what the new gun laws are gonna B. Does that make sense to anybody? What do gun laws have to do with the restriction of bullet sales?.....

Those billions are making it to the shelves. If you go to these stores when the truck comes in you will see that its a demand problem, not any restriction problem. People are meeting these trucks an buying everything they can. The stores are selling out in minutes. With the treats of revolt coming out of new york state, I dont see it changing any time soon.

its crazy everywhere.. i found some hornady 9mm to day for 21.00 for 50rounds and was excited..sad really.  22lr is out everywhere sucks but it will slow down I hope.

Who knew this would be come an addiction!  I currently have 13 hens and 1 large light brahma rooster. We also have somelittle ones but as I have learned here they don't count.  I have started building coops to Sell.  I have come up with a company name Olde Tyme Coops hopefully it works out!

I've got lucky twice in the last 10 days. I was able to snag 3 boxes (the limit roll.png) of 100rd white box winchester 9mm at walmart twice in the last 2 weeks.

The trick is to get there before 8am. I drop my daughter off at kindergarten at 7:45 and head straight to walmart. I've been meeting the same few other people that are doing the same thing each morning, it's kind of funny. Nice older men that like to chat guns. I've managed to score 600rds of 9mm in 10 days, at $24.97 per box. I hope to get 300 more rounds next week. I need a friend to go with me so they can get 3 more boxes, ha! Too bad my husband has to go to work. tongue.png

 

The people that work there say that it's all gone by 8am. I live in a small Texas panhandle town. They never know what or when they'll get in, but they do say the supply is starting to slowly trickle back in.

 

I was also able to buy 500rds of WB winchester .40cal through laxammo.com this past week. It's still available. We have plenty of the good carry type bullets, but no practice ammo! I'm trying to get stocked up.

It is STILL very hard to get ammo.My local store shelves are always empty of what I want.It is getting to the point where buying online and paying shipping is worth the expense IF the ammo could be found.

Try www.gunbot.net. It is an ammo search engine that is updated in real time. It's going to be a while before its back to "regular" price.

Tell me about it... Shotshell primers, Small rifle, small & large pistol primers... don't get me started on primers for my 44 or 357 magnums.

In my opinion, these are the best quaility quail eggs.

To learn as much as you can about quail, read this book.

Chickens can carry diseases that are fatal to quail.

Studies have shown that one out of every three people have been diagnosed with a mental disorder, so if your 2 closest friends seem "OK", then the problem is YOU!
