Definitely a Kel-Tec Sub 2000 Glock version. Maybe a couple SKS's, and of course, a bunch of ammo for them!

I stopped in Bass Pro in Cincinnati Ohio today on my way home. Not only didn't they have any AR's on the shelf. Reloading supplies were slim pickens too. It looks like this is going to go on for a while.

Reloading supplies. Browning X-Bolt Hunter synthetic in .308 or 30-06. And the new Vortex 3x magnifier on my VTAC behind my Eotech.

We have a LGS that has gotten 8 AR's in since Saturday. They also have some 5.56 at 12 a box of 50. They post what they are getting on Facebook and it is first come first served. I'm not sure I'm allowed to plug the shop name in the open forum but there are not that many LGS in Ft Walton Beach... has a guy in Pensacola selling 5.56 at a buck a round. I dropped him a line about the LGS prices. He didn't respond...

Everyone please keep your hands and feet inside the car at all times, the ride is going to end at some point!

I want a second 1911, this time with a rail..... My buddy bought a P220 but I still think the 1911 is just a more comfortable pistol....

Probably stock up on both ammo & reloading supplies.

I'm trying to convince myself that I'm happy with the guns I got and that I don't need any more.

I just got one of the Ruger Takedown rifles, and I realized I don't have all that much .22 floating around at home.

I mean, why bother stockpiling? There's tons of it out there! It's cheap and easy to get, and...

Oh, my stars and garters.

When this blows over, I'm establishing a supply minimum of 5,000 rounds.

Reloading supplies, AR stock kit, 22 conversion kit/dedicated 22 upper, AR 5.56 upper(basically finish building my AR.). Try and find a Mecgar mag for my P220.

will make my point to

a) buy products of companies that were standing up the hysterical and intellectually dishonest legislators
(that is olympic arms, magpull, hi-point, may be even ruger... have to research more)

b) will buy reloading supplies/ammo from companies that did not jack up the prices to obscene (for example will not buy from cheaper-than-dirt -- due to their 75/90 bucks per AR mag)

Defiantly a Quality AR Platform Rifle, S&W or Colt.

A Kel-tec sub 2000 in 9mm or a Hi-Point carbine in 9mm.

Depending on a number of things, I think I may have to pay ransom to liberate a Tavor from the LGS's awful clutches...

10k rounds of every popular caliber and all the brass I can get my hands on.
Due to several differences of opinion with staff, I am choosing to no longer do business on this forum. Everyone that has a pending order will need to contact me via email at Thanks,

I want to pick up one or two 10 round AR-15 mags. Ironic I know, but I can't find any in the stores.

I want to pick up a Hornady Single Stage press or kit to go with my Ammo Plant for my .300 RUM.

As for firearms, a 22LR 1911 pattern, a 1911 with rail, probably colt, so I'll have 1911 with and without, an an M9 as I'd like to pick up a 9mm, and a Browning 725 Sprorting, Adjustable w/32 inch barrels.

The recent plan was to visit, for the first time just for the variety/enjoyment, a really large gun show such as Dallas Market Hall,
or Tulsa's Wanamaker's.

But having already resolved two years ago to acquire a second Garand 'in the near future' from the CMP (though having 1,100 rds. of M2 Ball-
very slowly used), would you buy a second S. Grade Garand in the next two months, or spend about $600, just on extra M2 Ball ammo?
I can afford an extra rifle and $300 more ammo as it is.

Will their S. Grade rifle prices (I don't care whether SA, Win. or H&R) remain more stable than their M2 ammo over the next year, or vice versa?
I'm not a competitive shooter and tire of bench 'meditations', but the solid, very accurate functions with these nice aperture sights and history are irresistable.

Tom Servo: You mean 5,000 rds. of .22LR? It certainly should not cost much-months from now.

Back in January I said "Maybe a used SCAR 17", but I've scratched
that idea because I want some quality NV gear instead

I would just like to get a couple hundred rounds of CCI Mini Mags. Is that too much to ask?

No kidding. I'm not out of Mini-Mags yet, but I really wish I had picked up one of those $95 1600-round bulk packs when Wally World still had them.

I did go in there when they had 325-round packs of Federal Automatch for $15 each, so I'm actually doing okay on .22lr overall - just not on Mini-Mags.

FN SCAR, H&K USC, Springfield M1A, M1 Garand, Ruger Mini 30, another 1911, more ammo and an AR to see why people make a big deal out of them.

Heh, depending on where you live, these may be the only ones you'll be able to find...after the panic subsides.

I changed my mind, first thing I am buying is an XDM45 but I WILL NOT PAY $1000.00 gun broker prices for one. INSANE!

Going to 4 boxes a week. Like my dad has done since WWII
The number one cause of death in the 20th century. 290,000,000 citizens were first disarmed and then murdered by their own governments. This number does not include those killed in war.
We're from the government, we're here to help
