Default Status of Gun Industry = Max out

Based on this report, ammo and reloading goods will be hard to get for a while.

http://directorblue.blogspot.com/201...-industry.html

"RELOADERS... ALL Remington, Winchester, CCI & Federal primers are going to ammo FIRST. There are no extra's for reloading purposes... it could be 6-9 months before things get caught up."

I have that the Las Vegas police department has suspended firearms training, officer qualifying and target practice due to the lack of ammunition available for these activities.
If true that would definately prove that the shortage will affect all gun users.

This should tell you everything you need to know about the current state of affairs.

Just like '94 and '09 all over again. It'll calm down once either the gun ban proposals are defeated or the panic buyers max out their credit cards. New manufacturing capacity takes time/money to bring on line, and anyone would be foolish to do that based on a panic bubble.

It's not simply a run on ammunition, Federal (ATK Space Systems) have substantial contracts with the Government that get priority.

Imported ammunition, and other manufacturers besides these will be available first. http://www.brownells.com/aspx/learn/...aspx?lid=15832

http://www.defenseworld.net/go/defensenews.jsp?n=ATK%20Receives%20$266M%20Contrac t%20for%20caliber%20ammunition%20from%20US%20Army& id=6897

The press release you see here is from May, and I can't find ther Bizopps contract, but this is where the ammo is.
