People are going nuts around here, clearing the shelves ahead of the upcoming rationing, which I don't even know the extent and the actual laws involved except next month, citizens will only be allowed to purchase a certain amount, (number) of cartridges, and I don't know if it's per day, or week or per month, that's how ill informed I am. I just know it's coming and "they" are telling everyone to stock up now, or be sorry. Sounds about what to expect from a legislature that has a supermajority and can impose their will.

See, that has always been a goal, if gun control isn't effective "enough." Even more effective is to control ammunition, and here we are, in The People's Republik!

edit: sooo, I just might go down and buy a bunch of shit I don't really need, mainly handgun ammunition because I handload for everything I own except rimfire, but components are not affected and I normally have only a few hundred cases for each caliber and many times that in powder, primers and bullets. It's the pistol brass that gets thrown all over the place and recovery is a pain in the ass, so that's what I will concentrate on. I'm thinking, at some point, it could be a medium of exchange, as well?

What a joke!

I had to grab a number. now serving #85 and I had #92. so I wait until I get called.

All the ammo is now behind locked sliding glass. Call me a bigot, but everything a wetback needs these days is locked up, all the hammers, trowels, basic construction hand tools. For 50 years, nobody thought of locking up ammunition and now we are all potential thieves. In the same way they strip search grandmothers and Mid eastern men of military age pass right through because they aren't allowed to profile anybody.

I spent $200 on a few random boxes, but you have to point to what you want and he unlocks and removes how many you want then relocks it and you go to a different slider. It was so painful that all I bought was centerfire, completely forgot to grab some 22's.

Then he takes it up to the island at the optics department, drops it on the floor and instructs me to go to the back of the line on the left. By this time, #85 was checking out and this asshole must have spent a thousand bucks! Why would I give a shit except it was a very tedious process.

After I got to the register, just ring it up and bag it. But when the new rules start, maybe you will need to show I.D. I never asked?

That's it from The People's Republik, coming your way next year.

Good hunting. El Bee

Yeah, I can see it coming; "We don't want to keep you from having ammo for hunting but you'll need to fill out an application for this 'military grade' ammo. "

Two hundred bucks bought 9 boxes, 9mm, 40S&W, and 45 ACP, 400 rounds. That’s it.

Yeah, and in the same veign and logic as “High Cspacity Magazines”, we might see restrictions on anything labeled; MAGNUM. You don’t need magnums to hunt deer. Have we ever figured out what an “Assault Weapon” is, other than black and scary looking?

Of course I told the Peanut Gallery a long time ago, lay off the AR 15’s for hunting! But did they listen?

Good hunting. El Bee 🐝

Sad.
Questionable constitutional basis.See no significant public safety risk to the 'State' in storing ammo.
Sure it will trigger others to try the same though.

My AR is green and tan. No longer scary at all.

You think so? To you it's no longer scary, but does it have the pistol grip? Hand-guard? I'm sure Lefties are working tirelessly to counter your devious maneuver. They will have a solution involving strict regulations and punitive fines while touting "common sense" but don't expect logic.
