AMMO IS IN SHORT SUPPLY.....BUT NOT SHOT GUN SHELLS! Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition..

AMMO IS IN SHORT SUPPLY.....BUT NOT SHOT GUN SHELLS! praise the Lord and pass the ammunition..

Ok so there is this "rumor" that Obama is gonna take all the guns away. Now this guy has even said it, and yes it is on tape that he had no intentions what so ever about taking anyones guns away.
Well the myth is out there. And boy have the "yahoo's" fallen for it . Try going to the local sporting good store and check out the guns and ammo section. There's not much ammo on the shelves.
I went to a few places the other day just to get some ammo for my pistol. The stuff I have is cheap. Ok to pop targets with, but nothing for personal or home defense. I don't live in fear, but it's just nice to have.
There is limited ammo out there. And the prices are way up. I even went into Wal-mart to see if they had any. They had some but I wasn't going to pay what they were asking. And they didn't have much anyway.
I know of one guy who went out and spent $600 on ammo. It's kinda crazy.
There is a lot of shotgun ammo to be had.
I noticed this at all th stores. You can get shotgun shells.
Now why, just why can you get shotgun shells?
It doesn't follow reason. WHOA....using reason.... that's dangerous.
But from what I've seen, you can get shotgun shells.
Seems to me,that for home or personal protection a shotgun is way better. Ok, you can't carry it under your coat too well, but it has been my experience via the military and life, I'd rather see the Yahoo's with a shotgun then a rifle or pistol.
If you've ever been on a rifle range in the military and you've got a bunch of people who've never held a gun before...well, let's just say, Drill Sgt's are the way they are for a reason...

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE Well I finally found some 9mm. Now, I had ammo but it was some cheap ammo I bought a few years ago. In fact, it’s so cheap…(HOW CHEAP IS IT!?) the shell casings cracked when fired. Up, that cheap. Also, it didn’t clear the gun when it was supposed to be kicked out.
Well, a couple of weeks ago I was in Wal-mart in Roundrock Texas. They had six boxes of 9mm. It was $20 a box but the box had 100 rounds in it. Fine by me.
So I get the little gray haired lady (she was about 10 years older then me…but it wasn’t a blue gray…) to get me some.
Just making conversation I was duly informed that I need to buy it before it was too late. You see, “Obama is gonna take away all our guns and only his bodyguards will have guns then…”
My only response I could come up with was….”Really…”
I thought about getting into it with her, but I quickly decided not too.
I’m sure she had to go watch FOX or something similar.

OK..So went to Austin and yup, ammo is in short supply there too. A guy in an article in the Austin Chronicle went to a gun show in Austin. Yup, ammo and guns in short supply.
He interviewed some dealers there. They said they hope the frenzy went on for a couple more years cause they were making money hand over fist.
And, the gun manufactures stocks are just climbing.
Sigh...if I'd only known.....I'd ahve bought a butt load of Smith&Wesson stock...

Well here is an update. Checked out some of the little towns around here. And guess what...Same thing with the ammo. I did find one box of 38Wal-mart with a (as in singular) for about $16.00. Well got to another one and they had four boxes of .357 for about $28.95 a box.
But yet again, I found .22, 7mm and shot gun shells.
Seems to me that if they were afriad that "OBAMA IS GONNA TAKE MA GUN..." why aren't they buying the shotgun shells?
Odd..just odd.

Is that a freaking Louis Vuitton gold plate rifle? Why do I get the sneaking suspicion it's in Sarah Palin's closet....

Well, just a guess, but I'd imagine it's because you can hide a pistol, which explains the pistol shortage, and a police armor isn't really suited to stopping hunting rifles. (By that I mean in the 30 cal range and higher).
A shotgun would be ineffective against a target at a long range or one that was behind any sort of cover...which is exactly what police/military are trained to do..And they think it's going to be the military and the cops coming to take their guns.

I've never been on a rifle range for the military, but I've taught people to shoot. It's pretty effing scary, but the people we're talking about are raving fanatics. They've shot a gun before.
Frankly, if I were going for ammo for the reasons they are(Which would be going up against people trained to fight.), it'd be 12 gauge for close range, 30.06 FMJ or ball for longer shots against targets in cover/with body armor, and .22 LR for unarmored people that didn't have the sense to get behind something...Just cause you can buy a billion bullets for like twenty bucks.

If you're untrained and down to a pistol against someone trained to fight, it doesn't matter what they're using, you're probably going to lose.
Besides, shotguns can be sawed down to the length of a large pistol. Sure it's illegal, but the ATF is going to frown on you having crates upon crates of guns and bullets anyway.

If they sat down and thought about it for five minutes (which they won't do) if the military is coming for your guns, which will happen if you manage to shoot enough cops, all the bullets in the world aren't going to help. Civilian weapons don't come anywhere close to mil spec.
