    The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody had decided not to see.

    There is a run every 4 years. If you want to stockpile do it now before the price hikes but the shortages will only last a little while. We just saw this then the big o took office. IMHO not worth the hype.

    They would never limit ammo or Gun purchases. The idea of higher taxes on guns and ammo is just a rumor .

    Exactally! Hoarding becomes a demishing return at some point. I do admit however I will buy extra ammo if it is stellar deal. Natchez had a sale on .45 and .40 Winchester last week and I picked up a few boxes of each. However this was the target veriety and I do shoot a lot in the Spring and Summer.

    I should've provided more background so as to prevent any misinterpretations - that was my fault, I apologize.

    I wasn't in a gun store looking at anything to buy or anything like that, etc. I was working in the capacity of an agent providing customer service to the gun store. The owner never tried to sell anything to me and really it would've been quite an odd thing to do given the context of the interaction. Our reason for interacting had nothing to do with ammo. The topic about ammo took place in causal conversation. The owner was simply telling me about the things he had been dealing with lately. It just happened to be something on his mind and he was telling me about it.

    If you're doing business at a gun shop where you don't trust the folks that work there to tell you the truth then you should do business somewhere else.

    I'm proud of the fact that my local shop is open and honest with me to let me make an informed decision.

    Why? Obama has expanded fun rights more than any other president. Reagan (excuse me while I spit), Bush Sr., Clinton, and Bush Jr. all voiced support for gun control and/or enacted legislation. The Machine Gun ban, the import ban, The AWB, and the start of the "gun walking" programs under Bush Jr.

    Obama expanded our rights by allowing us to carry in parks.

    Wrong again.

    That was acutally passed under the Bush administration. Obama held it up for two years and used "further review" as an excuse.

    " It passed in the face of a hostile administration. It was taken away from us once before and doubtless someone will try to take it away again."

    Obama didn't so squat other than to sign it.
