Be glad when this is all over

I wish this whole gun ban crap would hurry up and be done with. I'm not low on ammo and I have plenty for all my calibers. But I like to add to the pile a little every month. I've scored on some 9mm and 22lr once. One things for sure, America is stocked up on ammo! I can't believe how hard it is to find 30-30. I mean come on its 30-30! How much of that are you really going to shoot??? Its available in spots online but when you factor in shipping its just not worth it for 40-100 rounds of 30-30. I know the reloading comments are coming, but that is just not logical for me right now. Anyway just wanted to gripe after searching the internet in every spot I could think of for some 22lr or 223 hoping to score a fresh batch.

We are ALL feeling it brotha. I have a feeling that this time, the crunch will be around for a while before it loosens up a little.

It does suck though to have a couple thousand rounds of handgun ammo. And put yourself on a "no shooting" moratorium, not knowing when the craziness will come to an end.

Do you really see the light at the end of the tunnel for this to be "over" ?? I have a funny feeling that for atleast the next 4 years .. this will be a daily thing!

No doubt. A few days ago my dad called me to say that he was completely amazed that when he went to get some ammo for his hunting rifle it was all gone. He doesn't use the Internet and even though he's followed the gun control mess he hadn't even realized just how bad it was. I've been on the lookout for him for a few calibers he needs like .300 Savage but the only single box I found was over $60 for 20 rounds which was insanity. I'm decently stocked but nowhere near where I wish I was.

I don't see it getting much better honestly. Maybe if congress doesn't pass any of the bs laws, but then you still have all of the crazy states trying to pass even crazier laws. The next four years will only give us more of the same from barry and his regime. bohica
