    What's happening?

    I wanted to throw this out to see what all of you have heard about this, if anything:

    Today, I had a LEO (who's credibility has been good in the past) acquaintance mention to me that he had been checking out why he was finding it harder to get ammunition, powder, bullets & casings. He said that through his contacts he learned the producers of gun powder, and ammunition manufacturers were hesitant to put anything else out until next year, due to the indication that in the near future all ammunition would have to be serialized and shortly thereafter it would be a federal offense to own any unregistered ammunition, whether purchased commercially or produced by home reloading...did I just have a bad dream or is there any truth to this?

    Hadn't heard, but I wouldn't put stock into it, until it's on paper, or published on an official site. Rumors ruin things.

    Doubtful. The war and the rise in the price of metals combined with the Employee of The Month for All Gun Shops has been making a serious dent in the stock.

    Thanks, probably no truth to it, just a bad rumor.

    Do you have any idea of the war that would erupt if purchased ammo and loading stock were suddenly declared illegal?

    If that were really the case they'd be ramping up production to meet the flood of new demand that would pop up prior to the law being passed.

    They should probably already be doing that now to meet the "election demand". Kinda like the reports that Magpul has opened multiple new lines for producing PMags. Meeting demand is in the interest of both the customer and the producer.
