Thread: Panic in the stores, again:(

    Default Panic in the stores, again:(

    Went to SW in Anchorage today as I was out of primers. Found 2k of large magnum pistol and 2k of LR magnums. Only thing left was a bunch of small pistol. First time in about 3 years I've seen SW so vacant of primers. Most of the 8 pound jugs of powder were gone as well.

    Yup, and just like last time I bet we see the guys that bought them up trying to scalp them back to the rest of us at crazy prices. BTDT.

    Yup x's 2. Saw it evolving last week and it happened pretty fast. Two weeks ago or so there was a continuous line of different powder kegs up high on the shelf at SW ANC...now, not.

    I'll never understand why folks don't stock up when there is lots of stuff on the shelves. I can't think of anything I need to keep shooting for some time to come. It would suck to be a new reloader right now. This is the fourth time I've seen this and the last three haven't had much effect on me.

    Same down here in Kenai, just a few mag large pistol and mag large rifle. No small pistol even and most powder seemed out as well. Was able to get a couple 8lb kegs of Varget and some other powders I use most often. I stock up--not to scalp later but to keep my toys going bang.

    You think reloading components are suddenly scarce, try to find a "high capacity" magazine for anything. Out of stock. Out of stock. Backordered. Restock expected at end of January...

    Sportsmans warehouse has the black, non-window, 30rd pMags in stock online--can only buy 2 per customer though. All others are sold out. Saw it a couple hours ago--so not sure if still available--started to buy two more but didn't, already have more than I will need. So FYI.

    Figured it could easily work like the PFD, only two per people, but if an all-shooting household, certainly hook the other members up too.

    Just look on MidwayUSA. Every rifle or pistol mag I've looked for has been Out of Stock - Backordered. AR mags are made of a new material called unobtanium.

    It's a good thing some of us have a good stockpile in Home Tree.

    Anyone see any good deals on .308 Nato? 500 rounds or so.

    Why might some ask? Reported for duty in Vietnam and was given a M79 and 5 rounds on my first day. It did not take long before I collected two sand bags full of various rounds. Latter when I was issued a M16 I had 110 clips stashed around. NEVER be out gunned has always been my rule.

    For those interested, it has never been easier to support those fighting for our gun rights.

    Good post guy and I tried to rep you, but..."you have given too much reputation points in the last 24 hours" (or something like that)
