    Call me a fool but I am not stocking up on anything. I remember several years ago when .380 was selling for nearly $70.00 for a 50-round box and that was because people started hoarding. When .380 was high as a cat's back, .38, .40 and .45 was still inexpensive. Many people simply dug their own graves in a foolish attempt to vacuum the market thinking the world was ending. Here we are years later and the world has not ended. Yet anyway. The folks in Washington, especially President Obama have far more important issues on their plate than dealing with USA firearms owners. If you start hoarding ammo as many did in 2007/8 you can bet the prices will rise. Go ahead and buy all you can see what happens and don't gripe about the end result you helped create. If you all want to avoid problems of the past, buy a box of ammo when it is on sale. If you go practice, buy a box an replace what you shot. Be cool, be intelligent and be aware of the market. There is absolutely no need to think the sky is falling because it ain't.

    I have enough ammo and will only buy more to replace what I shoot. My only planned purchases are a used lever 30-30 and a .22 rifle and ammo for both. I'm avoiding buying any military style rifles for a number of reasons.

    Now that the election is over, I will CONTINUE stocking up on ammo. Albeit in a little more peace and quiet.

    As many of you know, my job entails monitoring this stuff. The internet is full of stories today about strong gun sales and that goes for ammo. too

    Word to the wise: Everyone rushing to the store to buy ammunition is going to result in an artificial shortage, which results in unnecessary concern, which leads to more panic buying which results in an artificial... well, you see how this is the dog chasing his tail...

    Why avoid buying military style rifle and ammo? What are your reasons?

    I'll be buying ammo to restock what I shoot. I have no intention of making some massive purchases for fear that I won't be able to get any soon.

    X2.

    I just made a fairly large order but my wife and I are going to go to a training class in a couple of weeks and according to the instructor we will need about 200-300 rounds each. Other than that I have a good supply for normal weekly range trips.
