    Interesting "Reader Comments" included at end of article.

    Just confirms there are a lot of folks that don't like guns. From my standpoint...these folks don't seem to realize that a loss of one constitutional right can lead to the loss of others.

    I talked to a guy that works at one of the local Bi-marts today. He said that he has been having guys come in and buy huge amounts of ammo that don't even have guns to resale at a profit! I think that may be part of our problem too!

    “I consider myself open-minded, but I admit I have some concerns of my own,” he said. “I voted for Obama but the one area where I disagreed with him was in his stance on guns.”

    Now that is a non sequitur if there ever was one......................

    There have been times lately that I wished I could find even over priced ammo.

    I don't know if that's sarcasm, but I've had 22LR on backorder from Cabelas for a month now, and they just pushed the tenative date back another month.

    Yeah, 22lr stuff is hard to find. A lot of places have .223 in stock right now. I just picked up a couple of hundred rounds. I cannot find .40 to save my life though!

    That;s cause I was in Portland last weekend and bought up ALL the .40 at Walmart..... three BiMarts had NOTHING>....... not that I use, anyway, and I have different things that will eat fourteen different common rounds...... I could not believe it, BiMart had not one round I could use......

    But, Walmart did... it took three trips (their new policy of six boxes per customer per day......) but I got all their forty, and a fair bit of 7mm RMag.

    Wanted .308 for the new gun arriving tomorrow, they were out... but the one in Lacey had a pile of it, so I got some...... Federal PSP, but hey, it should make some noise. Didn't go back for the rest of it, though... another six boxes left. I MUCH prefer shopping at the Oregon stores, though.. I despise the thought of handing over extra money for beans for the queen.......
