I was curious so I polled many online retailers that sell firearms and ammunition and so far all of them have said sales are way up. Several merchants indicated political tension being at the root of the cause. Several vendors are publishing warnings on their respective sites for customers to expect shipping delays due to the increased demand. There is still a lot of ammunition out there but popular rifles are selling out quickly it seems. Pistols and pistol ammunition is not as much effected. The shortages are strictly on lower to mid priced semi-automatic rifles.

gun grabbers are the best weapon salesmen that exist.

Also,
Hunting season is right around the corner.

In my home town, it's Bow season.
Open rifle season for deer is in a few weeks- if I wasn't broke I'd be considering a new rifle, too.

I think you are right on that. I would bet that Beto likely sold 100,000 rifles in a few days.

No, gun salesman acting as gun grabbers are the best weapons salesman, it's a classic fear of loss sales tactic.

So you are saying Beto is a gun salesman posing as a gun grabber?

One thing I am noticing is a lot more of this.


Lots of popular ammo is getting snapped up and the best deals are quickly going out of stock.

Wouldn't surprise me, they should investigate what connections he has to the NRA... lol.

Surprisingly, even CNN were in over drive condemning him, after he made those comments

Wow that sort of stuff is just on sale to anyone in America, makes sense to have hollow point for shooting deer with, and you definetly need a semi automatic for that

So much for love thy neighbour

There's no better way to sell something than to project to the customer that if they don't buy now they might miss out.

Perhaps you could use your imagination and think a little deeper. Corruption rules and a little donation here and there can make all sorts of things happen, start there.

Hollowpoint isn't for the deer it is for tyrants and traitors.

The neighbors are fine as long as they don't infringe on my freedom.

Yea, just as soon as my ammo can arrived, three of my neighbors dropped dead. Right there in the yard, just dropped, like an egg. It was a bit sad, but then I realized, if I was fast, I could grab all their stuff before anyone knew. So I call it a win, win, with a little sadness. Good news is, I got over it, so I'm pretty happy now. And I got some cool new stuff.

What does any of that have to do with loving thy neighbor? I guess you can only love your neighbor if you don't own a weapon?

I recommend not standing on your head.

Not hollow point it plainly says ballistic tip. Thats the biggest problem we have people against having rifles have no clue about them.

A 55 grain 5.56mm Nosler polymer tip is to small for deer. That is the round I use for prairie dogs and coyotes. I get $20 each to bring in prairie dogs and $50 for coyotes from local ranchers, or a trade for an equal value of beef. They trade me steaks like rib eyes four pounds for 1 prairie dog. Those I can typically take out 6-10 of them in a morning. Basically my time, gas, and, 35 cents for each round in the bulk I purchase. Average is 200-300 yard shots on prairie dogs. 100-150 for coyotes. These varmints will kill or cause the loss of a lot of cattle in their lives.

I did the same when I lived in Texas, I've taken some smaller hogs with the same round. The bigger hogs my buddy would usually let em have it with something in .308.

So are the alt-right websites that freak people out and get them overly-paranoid.

It's the same thing, there's a polymer in the nose of the projectile.
