    Problems finding Ammo

    I'm an unhappy guy in need of rumor control/verification.

    I went to the range 2 weeks ago. on the way I stopped off to buy some ammo. I went to academy sports to buy some 7.62 X 39. Shelves were empty.

    The same manufacturer had a shelf full 5.56. The guy at the counter said that supply was short and he couldnt keep it on the shelf more than 1 hour.

    At the range the range owner hadnt had any in 2 months.

    :wtfgif9fr


    Last week I could find a single box in the whole city of Austin for $14!!!!

    My going rumors are:

    1) Monarch is merging with Winchester so there is speculative buying.

    2) Venezuala has bought 1 million old SKS's and a ton of ammo. The world market is adjusting.

    Anybody here know what the real deal is? I dont understand why I cant buy the most common ammo in the world in Texas.

    It's messing with my practice schedual I HATE going under 1,000 rounds in the house.

    Depends on what firearms its for. Some go through ammo very quickly.

    I only keep about 100 (50/hollow point 50/Black Talons) in my apt.

    What firearm you do have antifa?

    Sorry, I bought all the ammo. I'd sell you some, but I really need every last bullet.

    1,000 rounds is not really that much. It sounds like a lot, but 1,000 rounds of 7.62x39 would fit in a large shoe box. You'd be surprised how fast it disappears.

    I never have time to shoot, so I don't worry much about ammo levels anymore.

    Cause Christianity sucks. No religion is wrong but Christianity comes damn close. Or As I like to call them Jews in denial.
