The election alone should have clued people to there being a problem.It is hard to watch the ammo prices climb around the Houston area. People are shelling out a dollar per round for standard FMJ pistol ammo. I would feel sorry for them, but this is the price you have to pay for not being prepared for life's challenges. Add the election year, COVID-19, a few months of riots and looting, and you wonder why so many people are running to empty gun stores looking for a feeling of security.
I even purchase ammo this week for my 444P, a Rifle which I have never shot, but only had 14 boxes of ammo for it. I found a dealer online that had a case of Marlin 265 Grain Core-Lokt for $269 with free shipping. That was close enough to a good price that I had to purchase it. Now, I have 24 Boxes of ammo for a rifle that I will probably never shoot. Problem solved, now I can sleep at night having corrected a deficiency in my ammo supply, and it only cost me $269, what a deal.
Kinda sad that an election brings on a gun/ammo buying binge.
What does that say about us as a country?
