I sure hope it gets better... things have been slim pickins everywhere I have been looking for ammo.

I'm just adapting to life without trips to the gun range and conserving what I have.

If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?
My cousin worked for Ruger during the Obama years and he worked so much mandatory overtime that he quit the job. Liberal administrations put a lot of stress on people who make and sell guns and ammo trying to increase production to meet demand.

Is it really a liberal vs conservative issue? People hoard ammo anytime a Democrat is elected because they are paranoid nutjobs. Then in 6 months or so the paranoia dies down, no one knocks down any doors to take away anyones guns, supply goes back up and prices drop back to normal for the next 4 years. It's a idiot problem not a political problem. These same people probably still have garages full of toilet paper left over from March.

And for the record, I am a gun loving nutjob. I'm just not dumb enough to think the scary democrats are coming for my guns and I don't wait for a presidential election to stock up on ammo. Same way I don't wait until AFTER eating taco bell to buy toilet paper.

Its not that they think its going to happen immediatly after a dem takes office....just that democrats will be the ones to do it..someday....and you might as well be prepared.

Yeah it sucks....i cant even hardly find.22LR, but you cant blame the citizens for worrying....perhaps they wouldnt if democrats would stand up for gun rights, or hell, rights in general.

The "just in time" inventory control model cannot keep up with stupidity, no matter the context.

My brother in law works for Daniel Defense. He said they always hire on temps during an election year to deal with the surge in demand. Then they lay them all off after a couple months when things die down and continue business as usual. My Delta 5 pro took 4 months to get done and my brother in law was the one building it. That's how swamped they are. Anything in an AR platform is backordered until early summer.

Or not get out in front of the media and say things like "We are going to tax your guns" "We are going to take your guns" "We are going to place limits on how many guns and how much ammo you can buy" "We are going to put background checks on ammo". Those are the things that drive the panic buying. They are also talking points that I have either heard or read from politicians since Las Vegas.

for what it's worth, my first recollection of "my cold dead hands" was sometime in the mid 60's.
I'm not too worried here in Ohio, but I watching what's going on in Cal, NY, & NJ

You can but it isn't very user friendly to do it and is easy to mess up the priming. Not to mention you can't unstrike the rim where it was originally fired.

Nj's gun laws have always been the strictest in the country. The only thing that's changed for the worse here in the past 20 years is the 10rd mag limits after the vegas shooting, but on the flip side they have also streamlined the permit process by about 1,000% so things have actually improved.

So yea NJ still sucks, but it doesn't suck any more now than it ever has...
