Default Ammo shortage and the future.

This from another website...........
..............................................

Something to think about... Have not check the names out yet..

BUT, we know they have ordered everything they can. And this is something NOT protected by the Bill of Rights..




You may not know this but George Soros owns most of the ammunition
manufacturing companies and many arms manufacturers as well. He's
selling
ONLY to the government right now, per WH & DHS orders. My son
works for ATK, who owns just about all the rest of the ammunition companies
that Soros doesn't own. He tells me that ATK has been ordered by the
federal government to curtail sales of ammunition, primers and powder to
the retail market. What you see currently on the shelves is old stock
and what's left in the warehouses since the CT shootings and new stock
will NOT be appearing anytime soon. ATK and Soros' companies have more
than enough government contracts to keep them going for years to come.
Like Soros' companies, ATK is a huge defense contractor and they've
been told to sell ONLY to the DOD, TSA, FBI, DHS and local/federal law
enforcement agencies. This is VERY scary and VERY ominous for what's coming
down the pike in the future. My son has seen the proposed pricing schedule for Federal, CCI,
Hornady, Remington, Winchester and several other ammunition manufacturer's
lines of ammunition, components, reloading equipment (ATK owns Outers,
RCBS, Hoppe and a host of others) and he's flabbergasted! As an example, when
the sales of .22 LR bulk ammo resumes, the pricing will be over $50.00
for a 535-round Value Pak! That's nearly a dime-a-shot!! They're also
going to raise the prices by 300 - 400% on dies, presses, powder measures
and the like. He's in management there at ATK in Salt Lake City and
they're NOT happy with it at all! They firmly believe this will basically
shut-down the civilian market while leaving the government as the only
purchaser of their products. He saw the government pricing for the centerfire

ammunition they've been stockpiling and their prices have actually
dropped from a year ago so the feds are buying this stuff REAL cheap while
we can't even get our hands on it at all!
Something I've always said since Obummer came onto the scene in
2008 is that, even if they can't actually ban the weapons themselves, the
government will make it nearly impossible for us civilians to feed
them with ammo, reloading components and the like. The WH doesn't HAVE
to actually ban the guns, as Biden said in one of his many faux pas,
foot-in-the-mouth, Freudian slip speeches he's famous for making.
" All we have to do is to make it too expensive to use them and the
public will eventually give them back to us if we offer an attractive price
for these weapons". What's an "attractive price" - a $10.00 Walmart gift
card for a $3,000.00 custom hunting rifle? Those were his EXACT words in one
of the speeches he gave to the freshman congressmen last week! Remember,
Biden was one of the architects of the Clinton gun ban of years ago. I
think he's as dangerous to the Second Amendment as Obozo is, maybe more
so, because he's so stupid and doesn't know the muzzle of a gun from
the butt... Feel free to pass this on so gun owners will be aware of what
we're up against. I doubt the NRA can do anything about it, IMHO. La Pierre
can get on all the talk shows he's invited to and cry the blues about
the assault weapons laws that are forthcoming from the WH but the real
crux of the matter will be whether or not we'll ever be able to purchase
ammunition (at all) or, if we can, what we'll be paying for it. As
an aside, here, I deal a LOT with Midsouth Shooters Supply for my
reloading components. Two weeks ago I ordered 500 cases each of .45 Casull,
.44 Magnum, .357 Magnum and 9mm Parabellum. I was told everything I had
ordered was out-of-stock and no in-stock delivery date was being
forecast. They wouldn't even accept a backorder for this stuff! Thing the
government isn't manipulating it? Think again, my friend...

Panic buying is stupid. The prices will come back down, and there will once again be plenty of ammo on the shelves of your favorite gun stores. The media is the bad guy, and our very ignorant political leaders are just plain dumb. Smile everyone the good old days are just around the corner, well maybe around a few corners.

I have NO problem finding ammo now.. I just refuse to pay that much for it. VS 2 months ago, when it was impossible to find due to the hysteria.

I am not buying ammo now. I will wait until things get back to normal, and hopefully California votes for a replacement for senator Feinstein.

There's no ammo shortage, just an intelligence shortage.
