    I saw somewhere that the number of Democrats who own guns has gone up 33% since 2009 and that was before this latest gun panic. Between all these new inexperienced shooters and higher ammo prices, I'll be trying to steer clear of ranges for a few months.

    Because it's cheap to hoard and a popular round. But around here it's all being hoarded, there isn't even any .30-30 or .44mag at Academy, .30-06 .300WM, and waterfowl shot shells are all that's left.

    I was in an Academy Friday. Virtually nothing to buy ammo wise other than shotgun shells.

    I suspect after the Democratic nutjobs throw out their idiotic anti gun bills and get shot down, things will be much better 4-6 mo from now. Don

    Man, I work at a range a few times a month, and the last day I worked was the first since all this crap has gone down and I was literally scared to be on the line. We had to have 3 guys out there helping people who had no clue what they were doing.

    Seems more like they are buying EVERYTHING this time.
    380 and 40S&W are even gone.
    I did see about 1,800 rounds of 10mm on the shelf the other day:rofl:

    I was lucky and ready this time:supergrin:

    Honestly I can go down right now and buy(i saw them on the counter when I got my 9mm ammo the other day and yes they had a bunch of that also) 7+ bricks probably more as I said 7 was what they had on the counter..was almost $30 though that was the ONLY bad part. Other bad part was 4 of the 7 were that damn(and I cant stand it and would ONLY use it if I HAD to) Golden Bullet stuff...ive never had more feeding problems and duds than with that brand/type... They didnt have any of my go to stuff which is CCI so I honestly may be stuck with the damn Remington garbage.

    Last year I could get a brick for $23-27 depending on brand...now I see its gonna be $30

    My LGS still has plenty of this Federal for $20/box. I'm glad they haven't ran out of inventory or jacked up the price yet.

    They also have some Winchester stuff too for the same price, but I like this Federal better.

    At Walmart now. No .22lr. Limiting to 3 box purchase per day. Luckily, they had some 9mm and I was able to replace what I shot a couple of weeks ago.

    Maybe you got a bad batch of Remington Golden Bullets, because I've shot a whole case of them recently and had zero issues. I cannot remember my SR22, MKIII or 10/22 having a problem with Golden Bullets.

    Those golden bullets used to be complete garbage.

    The "new and improved" ones are apparently okay
