    So, no ammo on the shelves? Do you have enough food and water for a week? Do you matches and lighters? Do you have bleach and alcohol? How about meds and medical supplies? There are plenty of the things that will disappear when EVERYONE needs them. Get them now. Or you can wait until the shelves are bare and complain that no one will sell them to you for what they paid.

    A 5 gallon can of gas is about $45 retail right now. How much will it be worth after the electricity is out for a couple days? Propane for a stove is under $3 bucks. How much will you pay when your family is cold and hungry? Plan ahead.

    Well said...when something is scarce you should just look at other things. Last ammo and gun scare made me go out and get a Mosin with 440rnds of 7.62x54R. This one made me get more .22lr.

    Who needs ammo right now? Did deer season just start? Are there riots happening in every state capitol right now? Are zombies shambling to your door?

    I guess I missed it... What's going on that everyone suddenly needs ammo? Is everyone going shooting this weekend? If so, what pit, I'll bring the cactus cooler and salami sandwiches.

    I watched as many mocked those who purchased mags, ammo and rifles before the rush. Now the same mockers have turned to whiners about the high prices :)

    STRIKE THAT LAST POST, the matches in my post above are great when with a striker, but are not strike anywhere. I have used these all of these matches before backpacking, hike, camping etc,,etc.

    BUT, these matches in google search and one link on AMAZON are advertised as what we know as strike anywhere matches. Google
