Ammuntion pricing. BS or not?
Still kind of a newbie around here, but I am learning my way around.
Here is my question:
Went to Cabela's the other day to buy my new CC gun (Ruger LC9).
The guy who helped me was very helpful and knowledgeable. But I am not sure if what he told me is BS. I think I would have heard at least a whisper about this.
He said that due to some law that our illustrious president signed, that there was going to be an increase of up to 500% in the price of ammo. The way he was talking, this was going to happen in the next month or so. He was not "able" to tell me the date that this would go into effect. He said he knew when, but was not "allowed" to tell me. But he did state that it had to do with manufacturers adding "trackable" components to the casing, load, and powders. He also stated that we (shooters) were going to have to register our ammunition. This law also included reloading supplies.
So, what is the deal??? was this guy pulling my leg?
It just seems to me that this will be a huge pain in the you-know-what to all involved. And, I just can't see the feds tracking EVERY piece of the millions of rounds that are created/used every year.
They couldn't keep track of the relatively few guns in the "Fast and Furious" program.
