Re: AR's are flying off the shelf!!
I was out checking the city out building today and remembered I needed some powder n primers so i stopped in my favorite gun shop owned by 2 brothers, they where out, said the where selling them to folks from Oregon to N.Dakota. I had to chuckle, Havre is 100mi from the nearest interstate. They said people wanted to run back and forth between stored and dicker prices, they'd end up with empty hands. Meh I have plenty of primers, powder and bullets just by nature of fiddling with one load or another.
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
