    I got a message on the machine yesterday telling me about ammo on the shelves of Wally's again. Maybe it's almost over.



    PS: Hey John, are you any relation to Marcus?
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    LOL, Not sure, but possibly; I have some kin down there in East Texas/ Louisiana area that I've never met. I do wish I had a dollar for every time I've been asked that question though.

    Yes, I served for 24 years (1982-2006) and those are my ribbons, but Marcus got his the hard way; I was with the B-52's and we moved mountains when guys like Marcus asked us to.

    I was talking to the owner of a local gun store on Saturday about this subject. His opinion was that it is going to take a while to return to normal because of the manufacturing backlog and the specialty nature of the products involved throughout the supply chain. He also said that last time there was shortage, of which this one has been far worse, that (I think he said) on May 15th, things just turned around and stock was available again almost overnight.
