My point is that this thread was created to say "ammo is low because the government is hording it"
walmart still has lots of ammo, so do countless other locatiosn i could name
just because they dont carry a specific really hard to find anyways kind of ammo doesn't mean conspiracy
it means out of 100,000 people, only about 3 are looking for it. So its dumb to carry it in large quantities.
You are right the government is not hording all types of ammo,
but they are burning thru a few calibers a great deal.
Namely .223 and 9mm.
Some is for military some has been for police training.
But...that is not the largest buyer at this time.
What has happened is this.
In a 90 day timespan, enough guns were sold to outfit the entire
chinese and indian militaries.
90 day time frame,
massive gun sales
When those ppl bought guns, they bought ammo too, and most of them
are going to the range or the pasture to make sure the gun works,
and they can hit the broad side of the barn.
Some ppl are taking it a step further.
Learning to shoot the rifleman's quarter mile - The appleseed project
There is a concerned and angry citizenry that is arming itself to the teeth,
and they are doing things that have not been seen in a LONG while.
Make fun of dumb rednecks all you want, but when you see the
majority of medal of honor winners came from the south you
need to add a few things up.
They got guns, they know how to use them, and they are not
afraid of dying if they think thy are defending their ppl.
The MIAC report happened because they are seeing a huge surge
in militia like activity, and TPTB are a little concerned.
We got ppl hanging congressmen in effigy.
We got union thugs beating protestors to the ground.
We got ppl waving the damn gadsden flag around.
If you do a little research for the last time all these events happened
it got pretty damn ugly.
If things keep spiraling down the toilet bowl I am headed for the
hills and sitting this party out, because it isn't my cup of tea.
Make plans to get the hell out of the way, because once the dam
breaks your screwed if your in the way.
The gun seizures during Katrina will look like a picnic.
Good Luck to you all !
