    Default Russia Halting Ammo Exports to U.S. ?

    I'm not seeing it reported by reliable sources yet but it seems entirely plausible.

    Folks who shoot the commie stuff might want to stock shelves if this is true.

    Thanks.

    After I posted I realized that the article had used Alex Jones/Info Wars for a source which almost guarantees that it would be BS.

    It still seems plausible to me though.
    They halted U.S. adoptions of Russian orphans months before the Ukraine crisis for no good reason.

    For gosh sakes! It was just getting to where 7.62 x 39 was on the shelve when I go into the store. In fact, 2 weeks ago I had three boxes and the checkout guy asked if that was all I wanted. I said, "no, but you have a 3 box limit." He replied, "not on those anymore." So I went back and picked up a few more. Maybe I should sell what I have for 4 times the price and wait for the latest panic to subside before buying more.

    Think this is BULL- They need the $ and china makes lots of it anyway. If this scares you and you want to sell a nice AK-- for CHEAP let me know.

    Read the article - it is bull. Russia is still making it and we are still importing it. However, apparently plenty of people believe otherwise and according to the article, the shelves have been stripped bare of anything 7.62. I don't know if that is true up here, but I suspect it will be. I'm not scared, just miffed that it was starting to get easier to buy ammo and then this comes along.

    9mm has been much easier to come by too lately. I hope some stupid rumor doesn't get started on that.

    On second thought... Thanks to mom jeans in the WH, it's now looking more real. In the most recent round of limp wristed slapping Obama tried to do to Putin, he added a bit that according to the WH includes: ""named officials of the Russian government, any individual or entity that operates in the Russian arms industry, and any designated individual or entity that acts on behalf of, or that provides material or other support to, any senior Russian government official.
    According to The Truth About Guns, they have been told some shipments have already been canceled. So.... Maybe it was true.

    True or not yet sooner or later (assuming Obama has any backbone at all) trade sanctions will kick in and Russian ammo will be gone.
