Just In Case

I went to a small gun show yesterday. There was some .22 ammo there. Naturally, I would have liked to have purchased it much cheaper, but as many have been saying in recent weeks the probability of it "drying up" after the election is high and though I had some, I thought it prudent to buy some more. So, I did. It was marked $45 per brick of 500 but I got a 1,000 rounds for $80. At least I didn't have to pay shipping.

  1. During a recent visit with my best friend of 40+ years, we visited at gun shop and firing range to have her gun cleaned and tested. I was able to find an ample supply of HTP hollow point rounds. Like you, we must be cautioned that ammo could once again evaporate depending on the outcome of this election.

  2. Hey Irish;

    We use Aguila ammo at the Boy Scout camp I shoot at. It works well with bolt actions but it is hit or miss with semi-auto's. YOu may have some "bang" issues. And it is prudent that you are stocking up. All us gun people have been loading up.

    1. Hey MrGarabaldi, this is Jeffery. I have shot Aguila for years and have never had any problems. As a matter of fact, I've still got some of the original 5,000 rounds of sub-sonic Aguila I bought eighteen years ago. I've never even had a single misfire. I must have got a "good batch". Having too much ammo is like having too much money, fun, etc. Prices for guns and ammo have been creeping up for the last month. I think whoever is elected will cause a spike in prices of both. Look for prices of AR's, AK's, handguns, magazines (especially high capacity), and ammo to be scarce for a while too. One good thing about guns is the fact that production has caught demand again for now. Many folks who never considered owning a firearm have bought one or more since Obummer has been in office. One thing for certain is the fact that he will go down in history as "The World's Greatest Gun, Ammo, and Confederate Flag Salesman"! LOL Lastly and on a more serious note, we must all remember to remind our neighbors, children and grandchildren that we can never, never, ever surrender our firearms. The Second Amendment is all that stands between us and tyranny!

  3. Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it!

  4. I tried their .22 ammo but found it to be a dirty powder. It left a heavy residue and fouled the action much more quickly. I've not had that problem with our domestic manufacturers.
