Something fishy is going on here……….

Go into a gun store and try to buy some ammunition. Hell, go into Wal-Mart and see what is left at the gun counter. Chances are your local Wal-Mart doesn’t have a bullet left for sale. Not even one little box of 22s. It’s almost spooky.

Why? No one has an answer. Ever since this last election there seems to be no rifle or pistol ammunition for sale anywhere. You can buy all the shotgun rounds you can carry, but anything for long guns or hand guns is unavailable.

The local Wal-Mart gun counter gal told me that they order the stuff, The orders are just not filled from the warehouse or somewhere further up the line.

Are you kidding me? The largest retailer in the world cannot get so much as a box of bullets to sell? It’s the same thing at my locally owned gun store. Paul tells me it’s just not available from the wholesalers anymore.

Are people hording? I don’t know. I do know that the two times I was at Wal-Mart when the truck was unloading and the pallet of merchandise was left at the gun counter there was no ammunition available. Not one box was delivered. It’s kind of hard to hoard when there is no supply available to purchase.

Even reloading components are gone. Try to buy a box of small pistol primers. A box of a thousand used to cost around $15.00 or so. Now, if you can find them, a box now goes for closer to $35.00 or more. Powder and bullets are also getting harder to find as well.

I don’t believe in conspiracies as a rule. I’ve been to and laughed at Roswell and think Global Warming is a farce created by Al Gore to make a quick buck.

This is much scarier in my opinion. The public can’t purchase ammo or reloading components? Who needs gun control when those sneaky bastards can find a way to prevent you from buying or reloading bullets to put in your uncontrolled gun? King George would have loved this. Without bullets July 4th would have been just another day.

I wish someone, anyone, would find a way to bring this to the public eye.

Hopefully I won’t disappear suddenly for typing this. If I do, you will know why!
