Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

I sure hope it gets better! I went to Bass Pro, and Gander Mountain to get some Large Pistol Primers. Neither store had them, and BPS only had 400 Large Rifle Primers, and nothing else!! Their handgun cases had 4 semi-auto pistols, and three or four revolvers!! The gun counter guy said that every time they get a few handguns in, they are gone within minutes of being put in the case!! Absolute insanity!! But hey, the economy has to be benefiting from this stupidity?

Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

Back in the day, I could go down to the local gun shop and get the components I needed in 5 minutes and it was cheap, That all changed when Clinton imposed the original Assault Rifel (AK ban and pre-ban) legislation which, incidentially was drafted in part by our favorite Senator, Diane Feinstein, which 'sunsetted' but the die was cast.

I've continuously anticipated future disruptions in supply chain economics and acted accordingly with components, maintaining my inventory at levels that associate with disruptions that I knew would occur again.

Unlike the old days when propellants came in cardboard cartons and the propellant had a definite shelf life, modern technology has made packaging an indefinite shelf life. Propellants come in vacuum sealed plastic bottles and jugs that last indefinitely. Projectiles are packaged in plastic boxes that you can stack in the corner, same with primers so there is little excuse not to carry stock. It's like my business. I don't carry just one of a part, I have multiples on hand, all the time and I order using an inventory level and useage factor. Same applies for reloading supplies, in fact, I just ordered a couple 8 pound kegs of powder. Sure, it's on back order but I have enough for the forseeable future.

We live in a 'I want it now' society. Problem is, it really don't work, especially in this case.

Patience is a virtue that comes with age and experience. I practice both.....

Sure is...

Like a good Capitalist, I have stock in Strum Ruger, Olin and Colt Industries. I may not be the brightest bulb but I have a feeble glow....

Re: Do You Own An AR15 Rifle?

Well, I hope we aren't on the verge of a new "reality". I was explaining on face book as to why the AR is such a good hunting platform. People, even some here didn't even k
now you could use it hunting. Thanks to this website I was turned on to The Varmint Hunter magazine and learned what a great platform the AR is for it. I can't wait to get on prairie dogs and actually hear coyote calls in my sleep.
Supplies will normalize slowly.
Keep the faith brothers!

Sold all but the one LE901 Colt that I hunt with. Have the adapter for the 223 upper but will maybe buy one or two back now that prices are coming back down. Got to love supply and demand! Made a killing and it is all tax free!!
