His first weapon of choice was a claw hammer when he beat his grandmothers brains in.

The world we live in. Best to go armed.

Re: AR's are flying off the shelf!!

It might Jim, if it was popular. It's not because in our modern society we have to protect ourselves from ourselves at all costs (to ourselves.....)

Somewhere along the line, we got everything backwards, now we are going to pay for the mistake. This anti gun and anti this and that sentiment proliferates in this country. Not just firearms. Look at motorcycles, same thing. Look at oil exploration and drilling, same thing, look at recycling and being green, same thing.... Not just firearms. There always seems to be a segment of society that is adamately against whatever it is that you want to do, whether it directly impacts them or not.

It's screwed up and we are all part of the problem and the solution as well.

Re: AR's are flying off the shelf!!

Any good educated guess's on how many firearms were sold in the last week? How many rounds of ammo went into homes?? I wish they would give these numbers on TV they must know...LOL They have numbers on everything else and blab it on the agenda pushed media..
Lines at cabalas in Rogers MN were back to rear of the building and people were taking numbers to buy guns..LOL
A decent size local store that deals with"""NONE WOOD STOCKED FIREARMs""" were stripped to there shoe laces!!!
Would just be i intresting to know I guess, maybe someone here knows?

Re: AR's are flying off the shelf!!

Think I stated earlier that I got online to get some primers at Wideners and they had none and Natchezz had none either. I like to keep a couple thousand on hand so when I run low, I get 'em.

Now, I wonder how many of those sales will trickle down to customers reloading the factory cartridges.... That would be interesting to know.

I suspect 223 and 308 anything will be in short supply for the foreseeable future. I don't believe it will have a big impact on our hunting rounds but we shall see.

I live real close to a Cabelas store (about 3 miles). I stay away most of the time.....

All my rifles have wood or snot stocks.....

Probably won't get much press as this was a prohibited person (felon) who all the laws on the books couldn't keep from having a gun. Yet the liberal anti-gun politicians want to let these types run wild, armed to the teeth, while the honest citizen sits defenseless at home.

Rather than more gun control how about a law that says "any convicted felon can have his person and property search for prohibited items at any time by local law enforcement agents, all violations will result in mandatory punishments, with-out due process of law."

After all they gave up there rights the day they committed there first felony, it's not hard to go thru life and keep a clean slate.

That may get there attention.

I got an ideah . I'll warn you i'm a little old fashioned so take a deep breath for this one .

The Law needs to get back to the days of old , If they would publicly HANG from the court house lawn that may get the THUGS attention ! I would guess it would slow things waaay down . Just my opinion. Now days they get free room and board . They dont have to even pay taxes, just eat the tax payers food, drink his water and burn up his power for life . In short they get a slap on the wrist.

Re: AR's are flying off the shelf!!

Went to the local Stuff Mart today. The one by me sells AR clones and various other rifles, powder, ammo, etc. Four days ago they were running lean on the AR's, but today they were out of AR's and several other bolt actions. That display was clean and there wasn't anything in the back either. All ammo was almost completely gone except for 22 shorts and shotgun ammo. As much stock as they usually carry, that is saying something (other than they fact that people are overlooking feeding their shotguns, I mean). Dont know that I really see this as a bad thing - people are taking their second amendment rights somewhat seriously.
