GeneralWho Needs Gun Control? PinmemberRoger Wright23-Jan-13 10:26 
Heck, I can't find a store in this county that has any bullets! I suppose I could swing a gun like a club, or throw it really hard, but shooting one is going to be difficult.
 
This isn't just the .243 caliber I'm shopping for, but all calibers - even the unpopular ones. Shotguns shells are plentiful, but no rifle or pistol bullets. Walmart has 40 feet of empty shelves where bullets used to live. The local "serious" gun store - the kind where true, toothless old gun nuts hang out to discuss their theories about revolution and mixed race marriages - has 7 boxes of ammo available, none of them useful. No one knows when more will be coming in, nor why the distributors have none to sell them. I checked a few online sources, and some claim to have stock, but that stuff's heavy and expensive to ship. And I have a suspicion that if I place an order, I'll get a confirmation telling me that they'll ship as soon as stock becomes available.
 
I even looked into reloading. I can order a reloading setup, but it might be 4 to 6 weeks before one ships. Bullets are backordered, though I can get brass immediately. Primers seem to be out of stock, for some reason, and I haven't found a source of smokeless powder anywhere. This is smelling like a conspiracy...Suspicious | :suss:
Will Rogers never met me.
