Could not read every post, but I think a huge tax increase on ammo and reloading supplies is coming. Just my 2 cents. If they cannot stop you from owning a gun, they might make it so you cannot afford to shoot one.
My comment is simply, if you hunt, like me, you don't need large amounts of loaded ammunition. If you are about ******* away rounds at the range or out back of your house, thats another story. Thats what 22's are for, not magnum rounds.....
I don't. I might send 2 dozen rounds from each of my hunting rifles in a year (once sighted and ready to rock) so I don't care if the tax goes up. Besides I have enough inventory in components and factory loads to run for years without buying anything. Powders and primers last indefinitely if kept sealed and in a humidity controlled atmsophere. Brass goes multiple reloads if maintained and annealed properly and not overloaded. Bullets, I have thousands and I have the capability to malke my own if necessary.
No issue here. Foresight is always better than hindsight. History repeats itself, I knew it was only a matter of time and all hell would break loose again (like it did 4 years ago) so like a good Boy Scout, I was prepared.
I might need some odd stuff, but I can wait. Matter of fact, I have items on backorder with Midway, Grafs and Natchez. No hurry here. We, as a whole need to get over the 'I want it now' ****.
Finally, in my view, this hobby/sport isn't a cheap date in the first place. If can't run with big dogs if you squat to piss....
