Guns and Ammo

Reply
Gun shops can't order guns at least the ones I talk to . Big box stores out . No ammo . It's like they selling out whats left in inventory . Not even hunting rifles or shotguns . I can see the ammo demand but I can't see how the manufacturer's aren't putting out any guns . Seems like them demo dummy's in washington getting their way...Cut off the supply first ???????

bullcoon : yep it seems that way Democrat dummy’s , been noticing that since the summer that firearms were starting to get scares , private gun market is probably only way to buy anything right now and people are stocking up on ammo since the election ! Just hope it’s all for nothing but it’s good to be prepared ! 🧙‍♂️🎣

Just like all businesses they are having employee problems. Employees making to much money staying home and collecting their unemployment bonus. Their victims of corona virus.

I still see guns in stores. I still see limited ammo at certain stores. But, I also see douchebags walking out with the max amount of ammo the store will allow....and they are probably turning around and trying to sell it on LAS for a profit....at least judging from the prices listed in the classifieds vs what I saw at Cabelas this weekend.

I hope these people get stuck with the ammo and eventually have to sell it for what they paid or take a loss on it! I think the industry will eventually catch up to demand. But, what I fear is that they will jack up their prices to match inflated after-market prices we are seeing by these jacklegs.

Just saw an ad on LAS for some .308 ammo for $50/box. What a joke....shame on whoever is selling at this price....even more shame to the person that buys it!

I don't know everybody else's situation...but, one good thing is hunting season is over....so, demand for hunting cartridges may be a little less until October'ish. Hopefully, by then, manufacturers will have caught up and will have ample rounds available until the next election cycle.

I'm glad I have what I would consider enough ammo for all my weapons....and I don't have to go out and shoot off a bunch of rounds to impress anybody.

Got a buddy from Abita KCs that works at a local gunshop and they can't keep guns in stock,the demand is that strong.If ole BumblingIdiotDementia-riddenunEnlightenedNumbskull(spells BIDEN)gets his way,our 2nd Amendment Rights might be in serious jeopardy.Coincidentally,younger son in second year of Law School at MS College School of Law and guess what he is currently studying-Constitutional Law,absolutely perfect timing.If we remove the serious Double Standard,Biden,Schumer,Harris,Pelosi,etc would all be subject to Impeachment,based upon the Incendiary Language each of these BoZo's has been recorded as using.Harris wants to bail out the rioters in MN,got her azz on tape and Schumer on tape threatening Supreme Court Justices-enough is enough-IMPEACH those idiots before they destroy America.Guess we could get petition going to have each of them REMOVED and restore OUR rights!!

P.S. Might get tee-shirts printed with my spelling of ole Biden!!Free Speech and Freedom of Expression!!!Like to see Liberals challenge me!!!

Hey Blue... I'm with you on the hikes in prices on here for guns and ammo! We all know, as long as people are willing to keep buying it, they will keep selling for the jacked up prices. All I can say is to not let them bring you down. No matter how wrong it is, they will keep doing it. I don't wish anything bad on anyone, but karma is a bitch! Pardon my language on this Ash Wednesday....

Here's an interesting read on Remington Company that was broken up in 2020 due to bankruptcy, Vista Outdoors is currently working to get the ammunition's factory up and running and recalling workers, the link shows who bought the rest of the Remington Company's.

As I recall every time a Democrat is elected to the presidency gun sales go way up. Some of it is fed by gun dealers of course. They can produce way more guns and ammo than they are currently doing BUT, if they make consumers feel that there is a shortage or worse yet a ban, up goes the price. (an age old supply and demand trick). Also, I don’t buy into the “excuse” that the shortage is due to, like everything else, COVID-19.
