As many of you have no doubt experienced; ammo in many places is in short supply these days.  The following are the reasons why.

  • 2 billion rounds have been purchased by the government; in many instances by departments that one would not normally expect to be stockpiling ammunition.
  • Panic buying is happening by law abiding consumers; as they try and get ammo before it is either banned, restricted or subject to high taxation.
  • Demand is currently outpacing supply; which is why as soon as certain calibers of ammo hit the store shelves they are sold out almost immediately.

This is an important lesson in why ammo; like other commodities should be stocked up on using a preparedness philosophy.  If you stock up on any necessary commodity when times are good and supplies are plentiful; you won’t be scrounging and scrambling when times are not so good and supplies are scarce.  Good luck and stock up wisely and safely 🙂

  1. I have read a bit of your first book and I got so mad I had to stop reading.

    This is not because the book is bad.

    It’s because it is -SO- plausible and I can see scenarios like it happening (i.e. “Affordable” Healthcare Act).

  2. We aren’t having to pay the high prices at our house 🙂 Your comments are correct..

  3. I do my reading on my antique IPad. The only things that it will do any more (due to not being supported any more) is the IReader and WWF. I will give book one a try. I just finished book 14 of The Wheel of Time – it doesn’t matter what I read next, it will be hard to follow. Congratulations on writing your books. I should have done that when I was still able.

      I hope you enjoy book 1. Have you considered getting a Kindle? They are fantastic for reading books, listening to music, watching movies, etc. It’s never too late to write; have you considered pursuing your own writing at this stage and if not, why not? Hope you don’t mind me asking 🙂

    As you mentioned, the two billion round acquisition (with associated weapon systems) by the DHS, is very concerning. The purchase of the three-thousand armored vehicles does ease my fears either. Glad to see someone is talking about it. Keep up the good work.
