    weldingmachine - this is crazier than '94. At least from what I remember.

    Was it this crazy in 94'? Or was it more of a surprise when it happened back then?
    No not this bad in 94. Don't listen to Bluejack, he just bought a 100ft yacht.
    Never buy during a panic, hell get a bow and arrows if you have to..
    Just sit back and watch this show..
    Manufactures are producing these products, they just ran out of 24/7 work days. They can not keep up with the panic.
    Now think on this one. It is not the collectors who previously purchased who are panicking. Probably is the idiots who voted for Nappie head..
    Florida now, after the 94 panic people were giving guns away, they needed money not guns..
    2004 or whenever they elected the idiot? same thing.. Panic buy sell.
    Not condoning illegal acts or illegal laws the idiots may pass.
    After this panic cools down, impending inevitable depression not recession.
    These panic buyers will be selling guns for food money for pennies on the dollar.
    Bet a case of beer on that..

    Im sitting on my pot of gold waiting for 18mths from now when these idiots have to sell these rifles at more than half they paid for them. If by chance they increase in value from here on then my past investment in guns is worth more than my pot of gold.

    No worries here,, I've got more rounds on stock than any of the suppliers combined now days. Reloading supplies are up to snuff too >20k+ projectiles cast, and store bought ones,,>80lbs+ of mixed powders, >5K+ each of all flavors of primers, and about 600-700lbs lead for future casting, about 20 different bullet molds,>10K gas checks. Just about every popular caliber of dies known to man. I guess I'm OK for now.

    But then I've been reloading for well over 45 years so I've had a chance to get a head start on most people just getting in the sport. I can't imagine what it would cost to gear up to the level I'm at now,,,, TONS !! I'm sure.

    I feel bad for someone trying to take the family out to the range for a day of can slaying now like we used to. When my kids were growing up,, myself too for that matter, 2 K,, or more, was the norm for a days worth of shooting at the range. Now days that would be a months mortgage payment for most folks,, crazy!!!

    I've said right along that the gun control is going to be a mute point when you can't get ammo anymore,, and here it is folks, just as I predicted. Or at least it looks like it at this point.

    This sport is just going to get more and more expensive and with more restrictive gun laws coming down the pike, few people will be able to break into the sport. And if cost keep up as there going, less people will even want to give it a try.

    When I was a kid getting ready to go to Camp Perry, every day was a practice day at the range for a month ahead of time, dusting off at least 6-800rnds of 06 and 308 per day. What to Hell would that cost to do that now??? Scary!!! My shooting has slacked off pretty good now, especially sense there's hardly any place left to shoot. A few hundred a week max now in the summer,, winter I'm busy fishing most of the time. And reloading of course, my mode is shoot all summer and reload all winter.

    On that note, it's time to get busy and drop some more cases in the tumbler and trim up some other case's for hunting loads. Got a bunch that needs to get done up, about half a summer's worth of hand gun, "major caliber" stuff mostly and a few hundred 06 , 308,& 6.5x55 left to do. Pretty much caught up now. It's ice fishing time ya know, don't want to interupt that!!

    LOL--4th is right, the USA is in full panic mode.

    time to sit back and have a drink --watch the rats and vermin scurry around--

    had people headed the dire warnings that we have been posting here at gunco for the last few years they would be at least mostly stocked up at the bare minimum.

    it is WORSE than previous ban panics , probably the worst i have EVER seen in the USA-- and i am getting old.

    but you all remember --president Obamma will go down in history as the best president ever!

    they be building gigantic monuments to his glory IF they can get the illegal aliens to accept our deflated Obamma dollars---

    now i was better prepared and stocked than ever before--

    but i saw the liberal light and dyed my hair orange! tossed all my firearms in the river--those EVIL things! LOL--

    now i am a smoking da shit and dancing with the unicorns all night!

    and a do have that bridge i want to sell--it goes to da 21st century!

    you think this is bad?-- i am afraid we ain't seen nothing to what were gonna see in the next 4 years--

    you got that right, see! they want to take the assualt rifles away, so when the sh*t hits the fan there will be less resistance, well armed troops & cops against muzzleloaders and bolt action deer rifles.

    if you are not stocked up by now, its too late!!!

    I just got a e-mail for Midway sales, ALL 223 projectiles are sold out gee what a shock
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.

    Me and my Bro Musibike want beer..
    All kidding aside, this panic. Most of us here are set... All it will do, temporarily, is slow down target practice as twa mentioned.. Relax, wait, calm down..
    Now, my neighbor is a Combat Vet.. I talk with him.. Interesting Man good stories..
    God forbid and I really pray it never happens.. If the SHTF..
    He told me they had 20 round mags, with 19 rounds in each.. Now for Gods sake this is in a war zone..
    They, the Grunts, carried a bit less than 300 rounds, plus other implements of destruction.. That is all that was needed..
    Unless your holed up in the Alamo, with Santana's Army attacking..
    Re-supply, well sometimes.. But move and get the hell out of there if you can and your ammo is low..
    You do not need 10,000 rounds, unless your planning on playing John Wayne.
    "Hold here, we will be right back for yah. Yah right."
    This panic will pass. Let the Nappy voters buy..
