No ammo has not been a problem since Obama, I don't know where you 2 buy yours but I never had an issue! Now certain types of guns yes since Obama, and Ammo went up in cost!

Good for you. It must be the area YOU live in that's odd. From Washington state to New York to the deep south, it's been hard to get. Ask anyone. From .22, .25, .38, .357..... it's been trying. If you'd go to a regular gun store, you'd hafta be there 20 minutes before the truck left. Walmart only had odd sizes and shotgun shells. Dick's only had cheap sh!t. I did a count, just a few weeks ago and I have at least 10,000 rounds and that doesn't count any of my shotgun shell boxes. I have at least 2 speed rounds with each gun and the cylinders are all full. My semi has 3 full magazines but none in the chamber. Shotgun holds seven with one ready to go. Shotgun is ready to go, because at home, if I'm in my bedroom and an intruder comes in, I do not wanna tell him where I'm at and that I'm armed. I've taken all the precautions I can to give me the most advantages over an intruder, so why give away my position, by racking my shotgun ?? My wife bought me a home gun which holds shot gun shells in the first 2 chambers and 45's in the next 4. That's good, too. That's my favorite revolver.

The famous last words are ......
" I didn't know it was loaded "
I believe you misquoted that guy. It's either, "Hold my beer and watch this" or "Heh"
Typically the last words are spake before the fatal shot, not many folks discharge their weapon while cleaning it and survive...

Yea, and with the passage of this bill, the penalties get stronger for that sort of thing
Several years ago me and my family stayed overnight at a horse ranch that had rental cabins. It was owned by an American Indian Tribe. There was a picture on the wall of a Indian chief from long ago. Simple message. The Americans told us if we give up our guns we would take care of you. THEY LIED.

In my area ammo & guns has been scarce for a while, but it got real bad a couple months before covid.
Has anyone been to the gun section of an Academy lately? All the shelves are bare & they only have a few rifles at mine.

I was confronted with a .45 semi, not too long ago. Some guy ran me off the road from the wrong side of the road and I chased him to get his license number. About 3 blocks away, he pulled over, so I did, too. We got out and I asked him why he was driving so recklessly with a 2 year old in the back seat ?? He pulled his .45 and aimed at my groin and I was not prepared, cause I didn't see this coming at all. I talked him down and he took off. I got the number except for the last 2 digits, but the police said the description of the car and all the other details were not enough to catch him.
Sorry to hear about that experience Gino... on of the things that happens to most people when they start to carry, is a change in mindset, Knowing that you have the ultimate Trump card in a life and death situation, it becomes abundantly clear what compromising situations look like, and how to avoid them. Im sure in hindsight there was a definite lessoned learned from that experience. Glad your safe!

Thanks, yeah, the lesson is many......

* Not to be so hasty. I had plenty of time to write his license number down.
* I didn't hafta get out and confront him.
* I could've gotten the number and sped off.
* Not to be in the situation by just saying..... ah, fugget and not chased him to begin with.

How wonderful is hindsight....... especially if ya come out alive or at least not critically wounded ??

I vote for fugget. You invite a bunch of trouble trying to be right. If you were ready and shot him, your life would have been changed forever and obviously if he shot you the same would hold true. It's not worth it plus stress is a killer and these little adrenaline producing situations add up and bite you later in life.

Gino's situation is one reason to have a dash cam! Rather than have 10,000 rounds a dash cam would have cost less and taken care of the situation.
