Another ammo scare?

Recommended Posts

So my buddy went down to cabelas and said they were completely out of .223 and they said its been like that all week. Then he said prices went up elsewhere. Then he went to buy bulk ammo at another store that always sells it to us and they said only if u buy a rifle. SO, why the shortage? Not because of this armor piercing crap is it?

Dick's has American Eagle 62 grain 5.56 NATO for $49.98 for a box of 150 rounds. That's 30 cents a round before tax, normal pricing these days and they had plenty in stock!

The sale goes through next Saturday and started today. A limit of 2 per day applies.

Odd as I have stopped into the de cabelas several times this week and there was tons of various .223/5.56 in 20 rnd boxes some bulk pmc plastic/vinyl sealed packs ... I even saw the evil lap rounds.... I've found a lot of the employes there say random/incorrect things.... Like this week I heard someone asking an employee for pmags.... They responded "good luck finding them they're impossible to find...what with the impending ban and all we haven't had any on the shelves for a while".... And walked away... I told the person to walk 2 ailses over... There was 100+ probably between the shelf, end cap displays and a couple barrels with them in it... Lol....you have to kind of look at it like walmart of the outdoor world...as far as the employees go... Lol

Threads like this add to the panic. People don't seem to understand that.

This is much different than the .22 panic where you couldn't get anything but expensive match ammo, and sometimes not even that. A quick search finds tons of reasonably priced ammo in 20 round boxes or battle packs. Just not the xm193 on stripper clips in cans that I really want

Absolutely nothing that happens on NJ Gunforums will have any affect on current ammo prices and availability. This is a little bigger than our little world, like every time before. There is no being "proactive," just denial or acceptance.

 

Obviously it won't be the last time, either.

Give me a break! MY little thread on this small forum will NOT have a significant impact on the national ammo surplus seriously people. Plus, I wasnt adding to the scare whatsoever just wanted to be educated on why there was a small shortage so I came on here to maybe find an answer sorry for asking!

Good thing I read this thread! I just told ten friends, to tell ten friends, to tell ten friends. To go buy all the .223 & 5.56 they can find, before Obama bans it all, and the apocalypse comes! :lol:

 

 

Did you point them to your ammo auctions on Gun Broker? :D

Funny thing is it is threads like these that 'scare' people to go out and stock up on ammo. Then they tell their friends who tell their friends and it's a chain reaction. 

 

Think of the thousands of gun forums online, be it local, state, or national forums. You see these threads on every forum and numerous threads too. Then think of the chain reaction again.

 

Gun owners, especially forum gun owners, make ammo scares. Simple as that.

 

I'm not trying to be a dick at all. I'm just telling the truth.

What are you going to do about it?

 

There is nothing you can do about the national ammo supply or cost. The only thing you can control is your personal ammo supply and cost.

 

If NJGunforums shut down a month ago the ammo situation would be no different.

Matt seriously don't be so sensitive, if I thought it was your fault alone I would have said Matt you are causing a panic....but I didn't I said 'people' as-in the group.

 

Gun owners who panic whenever guns are mentioned on the national news and then run out and buy up all the ammo ARE creating the panic. Obama isn't taking all the 22 from Walmart shelves, panicky gun owners are. There was never any fear of .22LR being banned, but yet shelves were empty for months because gun owners create the panic. Your "little thread on this small forum" may not have a significant impact on national ammo surplus, but every similar thread on here, on AR-15.com, on /k/, on THR, and every firearm forum snowballs into panic buying.

 

I don't think Drez or myself are blaming ammo shortages, or panic buying on NJGF specifically. But all the members of firearm forums, who run out and buy ammo as soon as something happens are at fault.

Well if I create a panic so be it. I was smart enough to bulk up on ammo through the years I just had no idea why these idiots were going nuts again and thought I might have missed something big and didnt see anything mentioned on here. But as usual you ask a question on here and instead of getting a polite answer you get the typical NJ attitude!

    • This stove is over 20 years old so in my research back then, I discovered that a catalytic converter could be expected to last 5 years.  Routine maintenance consisted of taking apart the stove and cleaning the converter annually.  When you say you "don't get more than 6'ish hours average"  I take that to mean you fill up the burn box and don't have to add wood for six hours?  If that's the case, and that's what you are looking for, I don't recommend this stove.  Burn time to add wood for this stove is between 30 - 60 minutes.
    • Link: https://lancasteronline.com/news/local/atf-agents-seize-guns-from-leacock-township-property-amish-farmer-admits-sales/article_736a4096-7e25-11ec-9b81-c73a25950798.html [Note: this is posted to a public forum, so please don't get rabidly partisan/political in your comments. Thx].  This is an interesting recent case where the ATF raided (with 15 agents, no less!) the home/business of an Amish farmer in Lancaster, PA area who owns a dairy farm and foundry and has also done private gun sales (which he claims were all long guns from his large private collection) but which the ATF apparently suspects is more of an unlicensed firearms business. I won't get into the merits of the case itself - since it's too early to do so -but I personally thought it had some interesting angles... First, the Amish people's reticence to being photographed apparently pushes them more towards private sales, a cultural wrinkle I hadn't considered. Quoting from the article: Federal laws require photo identification when purchasing a firearm from a licensed dealer. The Amish contend their religious beliefs prevent them from being photographed, so they cannot buy a firearm from a licensed dealer. However, private sellers don’t have to require the buyer to present photo identification. Additionally, yes, I was somewhat aware of this next angle,  but I guess it never "struck me" until reading this case, re: just how incredibly nebulous and loosely defined the Gun Control Act is with its definition of who needs to get a firearm dealer's license. Again, quoting from the article: A 15-page document posted to the bureau’s [ATF's] site and titled, “Do I need a license to buy and sell firearms?” states that the federal Gun Control Act “requires that persons who are engaged in the business of dealing in firearms be licensed by the bureau.” “Determining whether you are ‘engaged in the business’ of dealing in firearms requires looking at the specific facts and circumstances of your activities,” the document said, noting no federal law sets a “‘bright-line’ rule for when a federal firearms license is required.” The ATF document says a person “will need a license if you repetitively buy and sell firearms with the principal motive of making a profit.” Licenses are not required for someone who engages in “occasional sales of firearms from your personal collection,” the document added. Anyone who “willfully engages in the business of dealing in firearms without the required license is subject to criminal prosecution, and can be sentenced to up to five years in prison, fined up to $250,000, or both,” the document said. Without that clearly defined "bright line" (e.g., no greater than X# guns per year sold, or, sales that are no greater than X# percentage of your annual income, etc.) - it seems like this law is bound to trip people up. On the one hand, the Gov/ATF - through this law - is withholding clear, unequivocal guidance from its citizens, while on the other hand, retaining their ability to punish them severely. (Ha! Am I stating the obvious here? I guess in all these years as a gun owner, I just never really thought about this aspect of the law before... perhaps because I've never personally engaged in a private sale...?).  Anyway, will be interesting to see if we hear more about this case down the road. Just thought it was worthwhile sharing.
    • The metaverse is a pile of shit. Even assuming it is something people want long term, they don’t want what is being made. People don’t want to move to Facebook-burg and be stuck with no amenities but the company store.  Also there were gold atms which heralded the return to hard currency from fiat right? i will also point out that there’s an atm down the street that has a $9 service fee. Just because some grifter sees a chance to make a buck doesn’t mean that’s the future knocking on your door.    I’ll be more excited when making it convenient doesn’t just translate to being rid of the bitcoin you have for a more recognized cash equivalent. Like tell me when we have the first big company offering refunds in crypto when you paid in crypto.
