I reload and have had primers on back order from Cabelas since May 10th. I have a few thousand of every thing else, but hardly any primers and they are sort of necessary.
Managed to pick up a couple of boxes of 9mm at Wal mart last week first time they have had any in months.
I carry a Beretta Bobcat a lot and it only likes CCI minimags , can't find them either. Cuts down on the target practice.

I'm not to the point of building a bunker in the back yard, but CB is right. Something is going to happen I think.
I want Missouri to secede along with Texas..............

I have not found any ammo shortages around here. Walmart has the 40 cal winchester white box 180 fmj I shoot for target practice. http://www.ammunitiontogo.com had my remington Golden saber 165 grain bjhp for 19.99 for a box of 25. I bought two as cabelas and bass pro want 29.99 a box. It cost a butt load to protect yourself. The winchester white box are only 17.99 a box at walmarts.

You forgot to put your location with your name.

East Tennessee. Locally the Walmart has the winchester white box all day long. Other walmarts within a 50 mile radius only carry federal which I hate cuz of the muzzle flash.

You got that right. People vote in more ways than one if you know how to see the signs.


Edit: People vote almost every day with their money.

That happens most every time you decide where to spend or not spend money, but in some cases, you don't have a choice as to where you spend it. Therefore, the spending of money for political purposes is best left to congress.....

It's called "practical politics". There are some very interesting studies on it. Follow the white rabbit.

The whiskey and women will come after the shtf in exchange for your protection and well thought out plans. The people that don't plan, tell them to bring a shovel.

I don't know if it's comforting or scary that I'm not the only one that thinks the shtf is out there, and not too far away.....

Hard to gauge the time. If we knew that, we could short the market, ride the market down, and then have enough money to buy all the supplies even if they were at premium prices. The risk would be everyone sold out.

I'll have to admit that I fiind it a bit comforting to know that I am not the only one. Otherwise I might begin to doubt my sanity.
Now I can doubt both mine and yours :nod: and I don't feel so all alone.
