2020 - I need ammo to shoot a virus panic. Things briefly returned to normal.

2020 - George Floyd/BLM/Antifa madness. This too shall pass. The likelihood of legislation clearing the Senate is nil.

2022 - The party in the WH loses seats in the House and Senate, as always. Panic should be well and truly over.

Relax.
All this hinges on the 2 Senate races in GA.

If both seats go blue, watch out.

50/50 and the VP is the tiebreaker.

I visited one of the shops near me, they stated that as far as ammo goes what you have is what you have for the time being. They are still getting some guns, but are limiting ammo sales in order to provide new buyers something, the only 9mm they have is the snake shot.

Same. Almost no handguns for sale. Limited ammo for range rentals or if you buy a gun, but not to just walk in and buy. Range however is very busy.

Shop I visited today had a few boxes of 9MM but was F.M.J. and cost $30 for 50 rounds. Very little 22 L.R. and saw only 3 boxes of 22 magnum.

Here in flyover country, the hoarders and old men meet every Tuesday and Thursday at Academy at 9 am, after the truck arrives and the doors open . . .
