Don't Worry about it!

guys a appreciate the comments but you guys don't need to freak out, there is very little you can do at this point in time so do what you can and don't worry about what you can't... BTW if you haven't already done so you should go to rugers website and sign the petition to protect the 2nd ammendment.

.22 LR can easily kill small game or medium sized 2 legged game if req'd for defense. It was cheap and plentiful and still is relative to the prime calibers, and can be used in untold different firearms. So yes, it's good to have a big stack of .22 LR!!

I've never seen .22 LR sell for such absurd prices as lately. Glad I already have everything I need.

My advice is also to have a few good effective oddball calibers, many of which can still be found at regular prices and in normal quantities. If you relied only on 9mm for example and didn't have much, you'd be screwed.
Mauser Werke, Schmidt-Rubin, Colt, Walther, HK, Weatherby, Browning, Ruger, Beretta, Savage, Bushmaster, Marlin, Mossberg, Remington, PTR, Saiga, S&W, Sig Sauer....a few friends of mine

Its to cold for the rattlesnakes to be out, and its perfect temp to be out hunting and I don't have even the slightest bit of ammo for hunting. what would you guys suggest?
I did a quick search on Cabela's website, and they have several different varieties of 30-06 ammo available.

Check out different places online... I'm sure the ammo is out there, since it's not normally an "evil black rifle" caliber.

Now, if anyone can find me some .223 ammo, I'd appreciate it...
I always felt that if I got to the point where I thought it was time to bury my firearms, it was actually time to pick them up..
