Now I know Ammunition is Rare

I got the Natchez catalog a week ago and they had Barnaul 9 MM Makarov FMJ for $12.95 for 50. Not cheap, but not bad. I'm not low, but since I don't reload I like to top off my supplies. I wanted 10 boxes. I got four and apparently that's it for a while. When you can't find Makarov ammunition the well is going dry. I see re-loaders are having problems finding pistol primers also. The anti gunners don't need to take our guns, just bleed us dry on ammunition.

I shot a match this weekend and there was a dealer on my squad. He was saying that he was down to 1,000,000 primers which generally last him about 3 weeks. He was saying that there is a rumor that Federal is diverting all the primers normally manufactured for reloaders to manufactured ammo to increase their profit margin.

Hey Garand! I'm contemplating an Uberti No.3 7" in .45 Colt., a copy of the top break S&W. Retail is $1179.00. Do you have an opinion on these? Thanks.

Trump could get a LOT of votes by telling somebody to open the floodgates for imports, especially 9mm and 223 ball, 22lr and primers. and then tweeting that he'd done so.

Didn't O'Bummer sign on to that UN Small Arms Proliferation Treaty or whatever that ruined the import/export of surplus military ammo?
Plus it doesn't help if other countries stop exporting it also.
