    How soon before there is a run on handguns and ammo?

    I noticed on the News tonight about empty shelves at local stores. Forget finding hand sanitizer or Clorox.

    How long will it be before there is a run on handguns and ammo?

    Have you seen prices going up where you live?

    I found one story online about ammo sales.

    "American ammo retailer Ammo.com has revealed that people are not only buying the garden variety protective stuff, they're also stocking up on things that can kill."

    I was in two large grocery stores & a drug store today--shelves overloaded with bleach, alcohol, etc. It's only the pathetic urban lemmings who are going hysterical...which is fun to watch on my TV screen.

    I would be more worried about rioting when Trump wins again. Antifa, BLM and the rest will go crazy!

    There will always be a certain number of Chicken Littles during an event like the present Chi-Com virus scare. Nobody in my area is wearing an idiot mask.

    We were in Walmart yesterday getting afew things and everything as normal. Hand Sanitizer everywhere for use. Only depleted shelf I saw was the dried beans. Have a feeling will need a Gas Mask when those are all used. The masses are easier to control if scared of something.

    The only ones who should be are those who already have some communicable disease--even a minor cold. Those, however, are usually the AHs who don't bother. In Japan, S. Korea, Singapore, those who move around in public coughing without a mask will be made sorry they didn't by the people around them--there, spreading your germs is regarded as the worst kind of anti-social behavior.

    I have nearly 40 ammo cans that are all full. Most cartridges from 22 short up to and including 2 cans of 50 BMG.
    I bought all of it for fun times at the range, but I can use some of it for trade fodder if times get rough. And plenty for personal protection, if the times get rougher.

    Teach them the truth, and let them sort thru the cobwebs of liberalism that have infested their minds.
    When the time comes that I don't want a new gun, call the undertaker!
    When they come for your guns, give them the ammo first!

    Yeah I would think that would be a good time to stock up some.

    I have noticed a few local gun stores cashing in on the new anti gun laws to take effect very soon. several stores that have been closed on Monday and Tuesday are now open 6 days a week. ( the seed of greed ). Gun sales are way up all over the state. I think demand will out strip supply on the less expensive fire arms due to the fact that folks that have never thought about owning a gun are now buying guns. And then there's the criminal element that doesn't give a rip what happens...they will always get the guns they require...

    Always stocking up on my "go to" ammo. There are certain calibers I refuse to run short of.
