    I think you are trying to disuade people from being prepared. The reason that you can not find ammo is because now more than ever AMERICANS are exercising the right to keep and bear arms. There are more legal gun owners than ever before. People are scared. They know things are getting bad. Many are buying a gun now before the ability to goes away with the stroke of a pen.

    I personally believe your views on hoarding ammo are unrealistic. You are upset that you did not get what you think you need before availability went south.

    Stop berating others for being prudent. You may need some friends who have ammo in the coming years.
    What a load of crap.
    Oh yeah, people are scared. Scared of what? Might be cause of all the F.U.D. published. Festus, You know what I am talking about.
    Noboby is going to take the firearms, or ammo away. Not right now. The dems have to much on their plate.
    If Obama gets re-elected, then look for serious gun control on a federal level.
    The ammo shortage is caused by people who are hording ammo. It drives up the price.
    I am not upset about anything. I have all the ammo I need/want.
    If you hord 10,000 plus rounds of ammo, what you going to do if you have to bug out?
    One ammo box of SHTF ammo is all I need. Most of it is shotgun rounds.
    It is because of all the FUD, is the reason people are getting scared.
    Thanks for hurting instead of helping the situation festus.

    The posts I put up are news articles with credit given unless otherwise noted. Just because people are scared it is not my fault. MAYBE if this administration was transparent as promised during elections, people would be at ease. MAYBE if spending was not out of control people would be at ease. MAYBE if Govt' were accountable for it's actions...people would be at ease.

    UNTIL THEN...BUY ALL THE AMMO YOU CAN. IT IS A PRECIOUS METAL THAT WILL ONLY GO UP IN VALUE. IT BOLSTERS THE ECONOMY. IT ALSO TERRIFIES THE GOVT'. THESE 3 REASONS ALONE ARE ENOUGH TO AKE ME WANT ALL I CAN GET AND THEN SOME.

    Right on Brother!! I maintain many thousands of brass, lead and primers, I consider it as an investment, better then money in the bank. Thirty four years ago I was paying $3.35 for a thousand large pistol primers. What other fun sport can you engage in and have it be an asset?

    If it is such a great investment, how come most of the price of ammo has went down?
    The ammo makers, and the retailers were making a killing.
    Now, my ATK as dropped 15%. S&W down 20%.

    The hoarding must be leveling out.

    Maybe we are running out of F.U.D.?

  7. Iceman, you are in correct stating that the cost of ammo has gone down, all the manufactures have gotten on the band wagon which increased competition and lowered the price. I am looking at it from a reloading stand point. My model 29 nickel plated thirty years ago sold for 325.00 I could not replace it for that today. Respectfully, in a free market, I am not sure what your definition of hoarding is. Who determines your needs? If the supplier limits 5000 primes per order, I am ok with that. If your neighbor is a millionaire will you also call that hoarding? Please no Webster definition. If you have a years worth of food in your cellar and your neighbor doesnít would that be considered hoarding? Taking responsibly as an individual seems to be on the way out (It take a village to raise a child)

    I donít think the so call hoarding has slowed down at all; the manufactures are able to keep up.
    I think the term hoarding comes from those with wealth envy. Iceman, you are too smart for that.

    wooddoctor, I am open to using another word to explain this behavior.
    I belive the demand has went down. That would explain the price drop.
    I use the term hoarding after viewing many posters who are bragging about how many rounds of ammo they have. Some have even provided pictures. BTW, if any of you belive anything the FUD mongers are saying, do you think it is wise to brag about how much ammo you have? With pictures?

    Finding reloading componets has been interesting since 10/2008. As soon as Barry was elected, people hit the panic switch.
    As we are all seeing, Barry is not looking out for the american people, he is looking out for his political future, and the interests of his party. If banning all guns and ammo, would garner votes, then he would do it in a heart beat. Because of all that is going on in the world right now, the ammo and gun bans will just have to wait.

    I predict after Barry is re-elected, with Billary as his VP, the banning will start. Joking Joe has gotta go.

    Didn't we see the same kind of selfish conduct with Dubya, Slick willy, and Bush I?

    That model 29, is a classic. Wish I owned one. Had a chance to buy one in 1979 for a great price. Turned it down, and bought groceries instead.

    Regarding food, I will share mine with anyone who is hungry.

    I never paid attention to Hillary, and it takes a village.

    Bill was very entertaining, with the fat intern.

    While Al Gore was trying to save the spotted owl, Bill Clinton was trying to hide the white owl.

    Don't feed the trolls. You can not argue with them because they do not comprehend. don't worry about what they think. Stocking up is the prudent thing to do.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

  10. Iceman,
    I think you are absolutely right about not exposing intimate details over the internet, just like Face book. People here need to understand that there are people out there willing and ready to hurt us. Our imperial government may storm in one day when the timing is right. I am not paranoid or am I a conspirers but I do believe it is possible that our government in todayís world is capable of violating our freedoms. As for the Bamster I am on the fence post teetering, I think our government schools have indoctrinated our younger generation to the statist mentality, collective thinking, the individual is not acceptable in our society. It could go either way, another 4 years will certainly destroy the greatest place in the world.

    festus - I'm still relatively new here, but from what I've seen thus far, you aren't hurting the forums much at all. Your posts tend to be rational, respectful - if not outright friendly - and thought provoking. Even when I've ready some of your posts where you're not entirely friendly, you still tend to be more in a mode for discussion than just outright disrespecting the opinions of others.

    iceman's, on the other hand, tend to be inflaming, trolling and just ouright argumentative w/o providing much substance beyond reactionary attitude.

    Just sayin'....

    If there's a way to put someone on IGNORE at this forum, I'd recommend it in this case. I'm considering it.

    UNTIL THEN...BUY ALL THE AMMO YOU CAN. IT IS A PRECIOUS METAL THAT WILL ONLY GO UP IN VALUE. IT BOLSTERS THE ECONOMY. IT ALSO TERRIFIES THE GOVT'. THESE 3 REASONS ALONE ARE ENOUGH TO AKE ME WANT ALL I CAN GET AND THEN SOME.
    I'll definitely go w/the first two, but sorta laugh at the last reason. Sorry, a couple of people w/a few thousand rounds of ammo isn't going to scare the gov't much, tho a couple dozen whack-jobs in some compound w/several million rounds does. Even if you take all the Joe Average Gun Owners out there "hording" (sic) a couple thousand rounds per firearm, they still don't worry Uncle Sugar nearly so much as a coiuple groups of Survivalists or Religious Extremists do. The vast majority of legal gun owners in this country aren't out to cause trouble, just safeguard themselves against BG's. Some few might be stockpiling ammunition in the event that some sort of gov't crackdown might ensue - and that's fine if that's what they want to do.

    As has been said here many times on many issues, you've got the God given Right in this country to do whatever you want so long as it doesn't encroach upon the Rights or Safety of our fellow Americans. Anything said against that from folks just comes across as sour grapes to me.

    So, I'll echo festus' comment - hoard all the ammo you want! I've got almost 1,000 rounds of .40 ammo right now, as I've found a few good deals and bought it as more of a long-term cost-saving measure than anything. I might just well go out and buy another couple hundred rounds just because I can. But then again, we never know when you might want/need that much ammo, right?

    When the Zombie Apocalypse descends upon us, you'll be happy that you did!
