1. I am an optimist
2. I am living in denial. I see the storm coming but just can't believe it will hit
3. I haven't shot my AR much since I got it and am learning lots of things. One thing I learned, which is probably very obvious to many here, but new to me, is that .223 ammo is much cheaper than 5.56 ammo. One reason I did not shoot this gun much was the cost of ammo, but now I know I can plink with cheaper rounds. Sort of like the difference between going to the range and shooting your HD ammo instead of the target ammo
4. I bought an M&P 15-22 so I can plink with an AR platform gun, but I can't even find .22 ammo.
5. I actually did pick up a bunch of ammo (1000 rounds to be specific) a few months ago, but, uh, er, I want to replace it. There is only so much money to go around and I can't just buy $1000 of ammo per month. Do I look like the Federal government.
Obama is unleashed now. This will be different than his first term. Last time it took about a year for ammo to start reappearing. Hard to say what will happen this time.
