    I've got enough ammo for about 7-8 more trips to the range. That's normally a decent supply for me, but not in these times.

    I just checked my usual online ammo sites and they are either completely sold out or jacking the prices into insanity. Right now Natchez has 115 gr FMJ 9mm Remington range ammo for $40 for a box of 50. WHAT?!?! :wow:

    Any of you hoarders looking to turn your stash into cash?

    Are you two neighbors bi any chance? Maybe you could get together and "stockpile" your "things" and feel better. If not, hey Pot's legal now in you're neck of the woods, just get stoned and chill.





    Told you I was In a bad mood. :wavey:

    Hoarding is the best way to force manufacturers to increase production. That is a good thing.

    What exactly constitutes a 'hoard"? Does it vary by locale or social status? Or, perhaps by economic ability, inner city v. rural, or how it is reported by the press?

    I think that if you want it but don't have it (or don't have as much as you want)...and somebody else DOES have it...it's hoarding. Gotta shift the blame to others.

    Local Wally World has mostly empty shelves. There are 14 Wally Worlds in El Paso, haven't checked the others.

    Local rod and gun club is a bit more expensive, but their shelves are loaded with everything. Academy Sports is also well stocked.

    I'm sure I would be considered a " hoarder" by some. I have 50k plus just of .22. Lost count of the rest. That being said, I have not prevented any one from ever buying ammo. I don't buy in times like this..... I bought years ago when it was affordable.

    Don't have a lot of money? Get creative. When I was in high school I liked to shoot, but didnt have money. I worked a deal with a local shop owner to clear a couple of acres of his land and cut,split and stacked the wood for him. What did I get for this? A pallet of .22.

    I love how people who didn't buy any ammo before the panic are now blaming the "hoarders" :upeyes:

    Because it's not like there was an event scheduled for November that we expected to have a serious impact on availability and price of items such as ammunition

  15. The Wal-Marts here in Texas were I go are almost OUT of ammo!

    I saw the same things years ago during the Clinton Admin and Janet 'baby killer' Reno.

    I got my guns back then. The run for ARs at $2000 each just make me laugh. WSAR AKs for $1000 (mine cost me $300!)

    Guy at gun show had, literally, a grocery bag of AR mags for $45 each!

    Amazing how many idiots there are that didn't get a good rifle, mags, and ammo years ago.

    I've been buying ammo on a regular basis ever since the AWB ended in 2004. I have about 30,000 rounds total, mostly 7.62X39 and .22LR, which should last me a very long time since I don't get to the range all that often.

    It's not hoarding, it's just common sense. We knew they would try this crap again eventually!

    I got mine before the panic.
    Been stocking up for years, especially since Obama first got elected.
    I haven't bought any Walmart ammo in months.
