Well, I have been wanting to build a tabletop railgun for some time now. I might skip the air and use magnetic fields.

Besides, I have a genuine curiosity about floating things in a magnetic field. Anything can be floated with enough field. Frogs have been floated in magnetic fields.


^^^^^^This is COVID lockdown talking here.

Oh, man. Now I have to build myself a full-auto frog-launching railgun.

Cue the Beatles: “Hoppy-ness is a frog gun...”

I’m getting nervous.

I’m down to 3k 17 HMR
9k .22 LR
7k WLR primers
3k WLRM primers
3k CCI 400 primers

I won’t ever list my powder, for shame, much less projectiles.

And don’t get me started on .38 Spec and 9mm Luger ammo. Red-faced, I am.

My name is Pharmseller

(Hi, Pharmseller)

I’m here to confess that I let my 22 LR inventory drop below 10k. I also let my 17 HMR stock fall below 5k. While I’m at it, I‘m ashamed to admit that, even though I saw the clouds gathering, I failed to buy more small rifle primers. My only excuse is, I thought I had more!

Wow, I feel so much better!

What their is a ammo shortage? When the words lock down were said I bought what I could and slowly got everything I need for several years... Dont get me wrong I run across ammo at bi mart prices I buy and store it.

If you've got the primers to fire all those bullets - YOU ARE THE MAN (and your net worth is approximately $8.746 million) :D

6k Winchester Large Rifle Magnum primers
7k Winchester Large Rifle primers
3k CCI400 small rifle primers

By the time I exhaust my current stash components will be plentiful again.

Oh, and I have more powder than primers.

I don't get folks on a 2A site that are crying about ammo prices. Don't 2A folks - by and large - prep? I'm not a bigtime prepper (my kids might suggest I'm a bit of a hoarder), but seriously I bought a lot of 9mm when it was well under $200 for a 1,000 round case. Same with .45ACP, .22LR, powder, primers, projectiles for the calibers I reload, etc. It's not like this is our first rodeo.
