    Panic buys starting...

    I was at the local shop today, and it was very busy. People are buying ammo by the k's and buying lots of guns. I asked the shop guys and they said it started yesterday and has been nuts since. They expect tomorrow to be super crazy.

    HA ha ha ha... now I NEED to visit the gun shop to see what people are doing. I wonder if people are going to try to dump their "investment" ar-15's for below what they spent. The next couple days/weeks might be the best time ever to buy an AR-15.

    I was just thinking the exact same thing. Yesterday I was looking at AR's because I thought I needed to get another quickly. Today I'm looking at AR's because the prices will be better than ever.

    I stopped by the gun shop during lunch today. It was almost like crickets compared to the last couple days. Still, the people who were there were buying guns--but that is pretty normal.

    Over the weekend, it appears that Powder Valley got in a shipment of Zero pistol bullets. I immediately ordered 1,500. I was very proud of myself.

    And then I realized, it's quite possible that bullets being in stock is probably going to become a regular thing now.

    It's gonna take some getting used to not jumping on something simply because it's available.

    Ha ha, hopefully small pistol primers become available soon again locally. They are all bought up--lots of gun owners and lots of reloaders now too.

    TJ, I still think you should grab one of those $60ish lee bottom pour lead pots and get a cheap lee mold and play around with it. You might find casting a lot easier than you thought--and cheaper. It will also give you some independence.

    Oh yeah, I know it and think this Christmas will be the time to finally make the plunge.
