    Guns And Ammo Production Maxed Out: “This is a Society Preparing For War”

    President Barack Obama is, arguably, the best gun salesman ever. Over 65 million guns have been purchased since the President took office in 2009. FBI background check statistics indicate that, over the last twelve months, Americans purchased a new gun every 1.5 seconds, a figure which suggests there is much more to the recent panic buying than people just stocking up to go hunting or sports shooting.

    The following guns and ammo industry report indicates that every major gun and ammunition manufacturer in the country is running at 100% capacity, with many so far behind that they’ve stopped taking new orders altogether.

    Smith & Wesson-is running at Full capacity making 300+ guns/day-mainly M&P pistols. They are unable to produce any more guns to help with the shortages.

    RUGER: Plans to increase from 75% to 100% in the next 90 days.

    FNH: Moving from 50% production to 75% by Feb 1st and 100% by March 1. Remington-Maxed out!

    Armalite: Maxed out.

    DPMS: Can’t get enough parts to produce any more product.

    COLT: Production runs increasing weekly…bottle necked by Bolt carrier’s.

    LWRC:Making only black guns, running at full capacity…can’t get enough gun quality steel to make barrels.

    Springfield Armory: Only company who can meet demand but are running 30-45 days behind.

    AMMO: Every caliber is now Allocated! We are looking at a nation wide shortage of all calibers over the next 9 months. All plants are producing as much ammo as possible w/ of 1 BILLION rounds produced weekly. Most is military followed by L.E. and civilians are third in line.

    MAGPUL is behind 1 MILLION mags, do not expect any large quantities of magpul anytime soon.

    RELOADERS… ALL Remington, Winchester, CCI & Federal primers are going to ammo FIRST. There are no extra’s for reloading purposes… it could be 6-9 months before things get caught up. Sorry for the bleak news, but now we know what to expect in the coming months. Stay tuned, we’ll keep you posted…

    Many who have exercised their Second Amendment protections are first time buyers concerned with Federal and State gun grabs being spearheaded by politicians who are using the Sandy Hook school shooting as a pretext to restrict access to personal defense rifles, larger capacity magazines, and even ammunition.

    But this may only be a part of why there’s so much demand. There are millions of Americans who are genuinely concerned with not just the government taking their guns, but all of their other Constitutionally protected freedoms as well.

    We understand what happens in regimes that disarm their people. We’ve seen the democide of the last century, which left hundreds of millions of people dead or displaced when their governments turned on them.

    We are determined to prevent it from happening in the land of the free.

    Manufacturers were running full-bore, but couldn’t come close to keeping up with market demand.

    It wasn’t just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that were sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands, M1 carbines, and Enfield .303s were gone, along with every last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagants—of which every gun store always seems to have 10-20—were gone. So was their ammo. Only a dust free space marked their passing. I’ve never seen anything like it.

    Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years was gone.

    This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.

    With over 300 million firearms in America in the hands of private citizens, the people are sending a loud and clear message to their government.

    Back off. Stop encroaching on our personal liberties. Limit yourself to your Constitutionally granted powers and nothing more.

    You’re not the only ones that are armed.

      Amen to that. I’ve waited several weeks to buy some .22lr. It is OOS everywhere. Finally had the DW go to the store when they got a shipment in yesterday. She was allowed to buy 1 friggen box of 525…

            READ THIS IF YOU WANT AMMO/MAGS. I ALWAYS TRY TO HELP YOU BUT IF YOU CALL A FEW OF THESE PLACES and check weekly THEY WILL HAVE AMMO/GUNS. ACE SPORTING GOODS IN WASHINGTON PA(WHICH PHONES ARE BUSY A LOT OF TIMES) WILL HAVE MANY AR-15′S BIG SELECTION PROBABLY IN STOCK MAYBE NOT AND ALLOW FOR ONE MAG PER DAY FOR AR15 CURRENTLY. PRICES ARE SLIGHTLY HIGHER ON GUNS BUT USUALLY HAVE. AS FOR AMMO NOT SURE IF THEY DELIVER BUT YOU COULD BUY A GUN FROM THEM AND HAVE THEM SEND IT TO A GUN DEALER LIKE GANDER MOUNTAIN OR A SMALLER GUN DEALER IN YOUR TOWN. NOT SURE ABOUT CALIFORNIA ETC.. AMMO THEY HAVE BUT EXPENSIVE AND NOT CHEAP. CARRY LESS COMMON ROUNDS LIKE .338 LAUPA AND .50 CAL 2ND ATLANTIC TACTICAL GUNS STORE IS MY FAVORITE IN NEW CUMBERLAND PA NEAR HARRISBURG PA CARRRY SCAR-16′S.(WHERE I got mine) THEY HAVE MANY MAGAZINES AND GET ABOUT 5,000 A WEEK BUT GO QUICK. THEY DO DELIVER I KNOW, NOT SURE IF THERE IS A MIN. THEY ALWAYS HAVE .223 AND 40, 45 NO .22 AND 9MM AND 308. THEY CARRY A FEW SPECIALTY ROUNDS LIKE SOLID BONDED BASE .223 OR PDX.223 ROUNDS BUT IN SMALLER AMOUNTS. THEY ARE GOOD WITH KEVLAR PLATES, TRAMA PLATES SIZING ETC, THEY CARRY ABOUT 25 GUNS ON DISPLAY LONG GUNS. LIKE FN SCAR, A COUPLE COLTS/ SMITH WESSON m&P. LWRC ABOUT 5 MODELS AND A COUPLE OF ROCK RIVER ARMS. THEY ARE GOOD ON CALLING AND GETTING MAGS. I PICKED UP 4 60 ROUND SUREFIRE MAGS AND 2 100 ROUND SUREFIRE. THOSE I HAVE NOT SEEN AND I DONT THINK ARE PRACTICAL BUT JUST WANTED. ATLANTIC TACTICAL IS GOOD FOR MAGS IF YOU CALL WEEKLY AND DO SHIP. AMMO NOT A HUGE SELECTION BUT GOOD ON FN AND LWRC THEIR GUN PRICES ARE GOOD AND AMMO SLIGHTLY HIGHER AND MAGS ARE BEST DEAL.

            THEN THE BEST FOR RELOADING IS beikirch east rochester ny. THEY HAVE THE BIGGEST BULLETS/PRIMERS AND POWDERS AND BEAT MOST PRICES I HAVE SEEN. i GET RETUMBO 7-8LB JUGGS FOR MY 338 LAUPA FOR LIKE 190 BUCKS! VERY REASONABLE!! THEY ALWAYS HAVE PRIMERS AND POWDER AND BULLETS HORNANDY,SIERRA MATCH GRADE ETC. GUNS HAVE PISTOLS AND A FEW RIFLES BUT NOT MUCH, BEST KNOWN FOR RELOADING.

            THEN I ALWAYS FIND AND HAVE A SELECTION OF .223 AND 7.62X39 AND 7.62X54. THERE IS A NEW COMPANY THATS USING THE XM193 BULLET BUT RELOADED BRASS CALLED INDEPENDENT OR SOMETHING AND CHARGING 9.99 FOR 20 ROUNDS OF AT GANDER MOUNTAIN IN JOHNSTOWN PA GANDER MOUNTAIN. THAT IS WHERE I GOT MY xm855lc1 THE GREEN TIP SLIGHT ARMOR PIERCING ABILITY. 420 ROUNDS FOR 199.00 FOR AR15. THEY NEVER HAVE MAGS BUT DO HAVE A LOT OF .223 IN STOCK.

            SORRY FOR THE MESS BUT IF YOU CALL AND CHECK MIGHT HELP YOU OUT ON THE WEST COAST. THE ATLANTIC TACTICAL HAS BEST MAG SELECTION AND THERE ARE 4 STORES TO CALL. THE NEW CUMBERLAND ONE NEAR HARRISBURG PA IS A GOOD BUSINESS.

            i DONT LIKE THE PEOPLE AND THEY ARE IDIOTS, THE OWNER IS A FUCKING DICK BUT HAVE A BIG SELECTION AS WELL OF GUNS IS BUFFALO GUN CENTER IN BUFFALO NY ON HARLEM ROAD. IF YOU CALL THEM THEY CARRY A LOT OF .22 WOLF MATCH GRADE A LOT OF .17 AND A LOT OF DIFFERENT .22 THAT ARE LOOKING FOR ALL SORTS OF BRANDS. TOO MANY TO LIST. A BIT HIGH BUT HAVE THEM. ALSO CARRY TONS OF 40 AND REALLY CRAZY SIZE CALIBERS. SO GIVE ANY OF THEM A CALL TOMORROW. IF YOU GET A DICK AT BUFFALO GUN CENTER HANG UP AND CALL BACK AND TALK TO SOMEONE ELSE. THE SALES PEOPLE DIFFER BIG TIME IN WANTING TO HELP YOU. THE PEOPLE AT ATLANTIC TACTICAL ARE REALLY GOOD PEOPLE BUT TALK THEIR TALK DONT CALL AND ACT LIKE RAMBO. JUST TALK LIKE THIS ISNT YOUR FIRST RODEO AND CALM AND THEY WILL HOOK YOU UP. THEY GET A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT ARE STUPID AND IF YOU DONT KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT AND ASKS DUMB QUESTIONS THEY WONT WASTE THEIR TIME TO HELP YOU. ACE SPORTING GOODS IN WASHINGTON PA HAS ABOUT 25 PEOPLE THAT WORK THERE PRETTY BIG STORE. ATLANTIC TACTICAL HAS ABOUT 4-5 MAIN PEOPLE. BEIKIRCHS HAS ABOUT 10 PEOPLE FOR THE RELOADING CENTER, MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU LOOKING FOR OR THEY WILL BE SHORT WITH YOU BUT IF YOU KNOW THEY WILL HELP. JOHNSTOWN PA GANDER MOUNTAIN HAS A FEW YOUNGER GUYS AND A FEW GUYS IN THEIR LATE 30 AND A FEW OLDER ONES, THEY ARE RATHER NICE.

            HOPE THIS HELPS AND GIVE THEM A CALL, AND SORRY FOR THE WRITING IN ALL CAPS. JUST WANTED YOU TO TRY AND GET HOOKED UP. BEING SERIOUS HERE.

              are you kidding me for the thumbs down already? do you realize dumb asses that people can’t find ammo and mags and these places do have them!! If I didn’t give a crap I would of never wasted the time to give you this info or could of bought more for myself and some of you would still be looking and never get them. Goes to show you how stupid some people really are or how uncaring you are. In my book you can go fuck yourselfs and you have no interest in guns or even preparing yourself. I hope you go thru hell when America collapes. It’s idiots like you out there that would never share ideas or resources. Again I hope your life is hell or gets worse. I spent a lot of time trying to help these people. But I guess you don’t give a fuck do you anti-gun idiots or die hard liberals. You are selfish just like Obama and that whole admin. I wouldn’t give you a rotted carrott if I had a ton of them at this point fuckers. Joe in NC hope you get shot in the nuts and mom kicks you out of her house.

              • clint,

                Thanks for posting the info buddy, I think you got some thumbs down because its very hard to read in all caps.
                All caps also implies screaming at people and we both know that just doesn’t work.
                And from the looks of the next post you might wanna go shoot a few rounds off, it always helps me claim down

                Stay focused brother,

                The thumbs-downers have the right to their opinion, no matter how dumb or short-sighted they may be – so long as they don’t infringe on our rights. So – let ‘em. You have the right to yours as well, of course, but to wish the worst to your fellow citizens – well chill, though agreed, don’t come whining to us when if/when the crap hits the fan. Makes us look as illogical as they are.

            i witnessed 36 boxes of 9 dissappear in under 48 hours,at 17 bucks a 50rd box, ar mags are still going for 30-40 if you find one
            i understand many who bought a detach-mag firearm recently learned they cant get mags, and guns are starting to arrive but arent selling because of this mag issue, some have had to alter mags not correct to work so they have a spare, they set limits because i heard early on that customers were goin at it over bulk purchasing, we are in this together, would u throw me a mag if im out, id hope, if you have a issue with lack of mags or ammo or supplies, i hope you have buddies who barter, i dont see the old days returning any time soon, things also selling out include kevlar helmets and flak jackets, lights lasers, good scopes,etc. wish i had a flak jacket to go hunting with

The aggressors and trespasser of our country and Constitution have been buying plenty of ammo and mags with OWN Tax money, so only fair to use your one round to take their many rds and mags.

Well get a load of this,in North Central Missouri, there is a gun shop that gets ammo in every Fri. morning, and when they get there to open, there are customers in lawn chairs waiting for them. My son said he went there one Fri. to see if they had any 223, and the guy said they got 35,000 rounds in that morning, and limited customers to 500 rounds each, and in 45 mins. it was all gone. Trekker Out. Semper Paratus!

            Got plenty no worries. My Aunt owns a sporting Goods store. In return for helping out there now and then (holidays etc..), she sets aside what we need. This time a year it is more like 300 rounds every couple of weeks. We have about 30,000 rounds set aside, that are strictly not for target, well not paper ones any how. Peace.

              :( I started in ’09 too but just didn’t stock up fast enough. AND, I learned something about myself. When Sandy Hook happened I was horrified and somewhat paralyzed — last thing I wanted to do was go out and buy a gun. And I should have. And anything else I could get my hands on. Lesson learned. I won’t repeat that mistake. It’s still possible to fix this, though difficult. And I’ll be better off for in my decision making process.

              I love practicing snap-shooting with the air rifles. Hold it in a normal carry position with the safety on, and snap it up to your shoulder as quick as you can and fire, both eyes open, don’t even look at the sights. With enough practice you can become very accurate. I can snap shoot a clothes pin off the clothesline 8 out of 10 tries at about 20-25 feet. You can tell if you are going to hit as soon as the rifle touches your shoulder. It’s a lot of fun, but the wife is getting pissed that I am killing all her clothespins….

              Tried out 2air rifles. Daisy is great. Pull up and shoot, don’t use the sights. Practice makes perfection. Doing well with Daisy and will get more. Cheap practice and I will be excellent when I need to be. At 29.99 it is a bargain and I don’t need to use real ammo. Go daisy.

          @Claymation,

          I don’t know where you are at but here in Calif. almost nothing is available. Woman at Big 5 day before yesterday told me that a shipment would be in the next morning at 10:00, that there would be a line and it would all be gone by 10:30. We here cannot recieve an order by mail either. Taking a trip to Nevada next month and will stock up there.

            You guys have Nevada we have PA…lol. I live in South Western NY. Most of the sporting goods store near me seem to be still well stocked with 22lr. Granted that most are small mom and pop operations. I was at the local gas station in my home town yesterday afternoon, and stopped in to get a soda. I wast surprised to see they were still selling ammo all these years later. There supply was down a bit, but still had a little of everything on the shelf. My Aunts store the next town over has been getting regular deliveries. She told me things got a little thinned out right after the new unlawful laws announcement, but now she is having trouble getting .223, but she had a bunch of 9mm left for sale. Just weird I guess.

              I’m not a gun person and I haven’t been in the market for a gun or ammo but these post have me looking whenever I’m in a store that sells shooting supplies. The shelfs in our area are empty of shooting supplies (except for the .17 and some steel shot) yet I have no problem finding archery supplies. I bow hunt and have for the past 25 years and only a couple of times did I wish I had a gun, getting face to face with a black bear does that to you as does finding mountain lion tracks in your tracks.

              What’s your opinion on the .17? it looks like it would be a good sage rat gun and a varmint gun. What about for game?

                The small high V .17 slugs tear up game fairly bad, and are expensive. I’d stick with the old standby for small game, if you use a rifle, and that’s 22 hollow points, or just slugs. Shot a lot of woodchucks with 22. If you want to play the long range game and don’t figure to eat them. You have lots of choices.

                The .17 ia a pretty good varmint weapon, and with practice; it’l take about anything down, but be a good shot. My .22 does a good job on most up to a deer, and will do bigger animals; but have been shooting it, for years. Got a good idea, where it shoots. Also have bigger calibers, but in a pinch, the .22 is my choice.

                  First off you need to know there are difference in bow – like “left and right handed” Draw length is measured by finger tip to fingertip (do not hyperextend) divide by 2.5 and that will be your draw length. Poundage for men is between 50-60 pounds. Women 30-40 pounds, Youths 20-30 pounds. I just started archery, figured I needed another mode of defense. Left-handed bows are hard to find in your local stores. If you can find one, go for it otherwise, if you are left-handed you will need to order it online.

            Forget NV there are nothing but shortages unless your hunting for big bear and moose 45/70 300 win mag etc

            NO 9mm NO 45 acp NO 38/357 you get the picture

            don’t waste your gas or money here
            at the local gun show If there are any ammo sellers they have lines of about 1 to 3 hours for ammo and Limits are in place. maybe 2 to 3 boxes of primers ( 2,000) or so ammo is most likely three to 5 boxes IF your lucky or Maybe two cases of 1,000

            This is not a joke i shoot 50 Beowulf and haven’t seen a single round in three months i reload and havent had a full box of primers in 4 to 6 months and bullets same deal

            most of the gun stores in vegas are hittin empty and IF they have a shipment its gone in about an hour maybe two 223 rem is hitting $600.00 to $700 per 1,000
            shot gun shells are going from $100.00 to $300.00 per case of 250 depending on what you want

            A follow up to my earlier post

            The following are gun shops in the las vegas valley and most are online and have the phone numbers posted
            You might make a few phone calls

            Lock and Load Henderson N V unknown stock Levels

            New Frontier armory North Las Vegas no ammo to speak of

            Guns and ammo garage unknown stock levels

            Citadel unknown stock level

            Accuracy gun repair unknown stock levels

            Sportsmans warehouse limits to 2 lbs of any sku for powder or 1 4 lb keg
            1,000 primers and or 10 sleeves 200 rounds of factory ammo (if they have any)
            Or one 500 piece box of bullets
            1 semi auto weapon 2 mags per customer per day

            Bass pro shops same limits as above

            Ventura munitions Might not be open to the public as yet mostly online sales they have reloads. Prices are about what you would expect now

            Wild West Guns same shop as the TV show Wild West guns Alaska on the animal planet Mostly Big bore hunting types no limits on purchases as yet and if you want a really fine Bear Gun there the people to go too they have stuff like the 454 casull

            As far as the gun shows go most have had lines of up to 2 hours just to get in the door and most sellers are either limiting purchases or Price gouging such as $75.00 for a 30 round Pmag
            There were an estimated 10,000 people at the last one at Cashman Center put on by the Rocky Mountain Gun Show the line stretched out the door through the parking lot and down the street and around the first corner and towards the second corner. Next show is Mar 2 and its promising to be a total sell out with 2 semi loads of ammo to be sold but the last time this was done it lasted about 7 hours and folks were waiting for 3 and 4 hours for ONE case

          • About 2 weeks ago my wife went to Big 5 to see if they had any ammo come in. The guy knows us and told her he had 2 AR-10 308s in the warehouse. He showed her one that was another customer. She bought one on the spot.

            We got it a few days ago. She found 308 ammo in LA for a buck a round. Got 200 rounds to start.

            Another gun store sold the 308 we bought for 1480.00, that store resold one unfired for 5K….unbelievable they are getting that much.

            won’t sell ours though, even if we made twice what she paid we would then not have it.

            She doesn’t think Im crazy anymore that I use to buy ammo weekly when on sale. No shortage in our safe.

            Why not think of it as a helpful lesson in preparedness? Those who have a surplus and are of limited means can sell at a profit and use the windfall to purchase other items they might not be able to afford.

          What we can do is look out for one another–body armor is easily defeated by most hunting rifles. It’s important to shoot at the ribs from the side, which has to flex so the wearer can breathe, and to shoot through the upper arm (profile shot)at the point where it sticks out from the vest. The bullet will travel through the flesh of the upper arm and into the wearer’s vital zone…

          I recently had the pleasure of meeting an 85 year old who was wounded twice fighting the Japanese. I was with my wife at a restraint and he was eating alone. My wife can get sentimental as she has recently lost her Mom and she was crying seeing him eat alone. We asked him to sit with us and learned he had just lost his wife of 42 years. Despite this he was pleasant and talked to us about their love of dancing and he was now teaching his sister how to dance.

          I bring this up because I believe ultimately his sacrifice is what makes it possible for me to express my views and concerns. I agree that all of the Bill of Rights are at risk and he was wearied by what he sees now. I appreciate that man and the thousands who have made the ultimate sacrifice, right or wrong, for THEIR belief in the Constitution. It is easy to attack one another right now for the difference in our views but the guns and ammo being bought aren’t for a picnic. This man is witnessing the destruction of the country he saw men die for as have many others who frequent this site. PREPARE! But make no mistake that should war come of this it will be beyond anything any of us can imagine.

          Mac I appreciate the efforts you make to give me a forum to show my concerns.

                  Dick, thanks for sharing your meal with a Vet. In 1975, stationed in Germany, a German vet from WWII treated my partners and I to a great meal and plenty of drinks. Not knowing why all the food and drink was coming to us. I asked the waitress about the spread/drinks. She told us that the old man at the bar had killed 8 Americans during the war and was very sorry for it. We happened to be the first Americans He had seen since the late 40′s.

                  I learned early, all vets need to be appreciated because we share similar horror stories and dreams.

                  And best of all, I do have a brain. Not to brag, but my IQ is in the 140-150 range. I am very good at solving puzzles of any kind. I have been collecting information since 1960. I have most of the most need information in my head already. Technology is a tool. It is in addition to all the books, information, and printouts that I have.

                  The technology itself did not destroy anything. I suppose you would badmouth shoe boxes and slips of paper because that was Hitler’s information storage system. Almost anything can be used for good or bad.

                  Lastly, I look down on people who use crude language in place of actual thought. I have just placed your posts in the same category as the other trolls. What is wrong with telling people about additional sources and methods for obtaining information?

                  The tech boom is so out of whack right now that most can’t even see that it is damn near over. The infrasture that was used to build this great country is nearly obsolete…it was built by people that worked together…the politicians, corps, and banks have destroyed over half the population of this great nation. What is it that they hold in their hand that make all of there daily decisions for them?

                  Use that 150 IQ to look into history and see that it always comes and goes…and who always causes the problems…politicians, corps and bankers. If you have been collecting info since I was born, you of all people should be running from this crap like the plague.

                  Brother, it is a battle for hearts and minds of our kids and grandkids right now. I will make damn sure that they have the same ops that we have had.

                  So help me God I will see that they have it and I don’t give a damn how we do it.

                  Technology is your friend or your enemy ………..it just depends on how you choose to use it . Did you ever stop to think that all wars eventually come to an end …….then its time to rebuild . Information and knowledge is the key to most things , without them , you are just as dead . People die , and if the ” knowledge ” isnt passed on in a timely manor or written down for others to follow , they die also . WHat if the guy with the knowledge gets killed . Look at all the peoples on earth that had no written language , they usually ended up the slaves of those that did and were considered inferior at the same time . Technology will now allow a person to cary an entire library of information of a few flash drives to be easily accessed on the move . Our enemies are going to use it …..we dare not dismiss it either , think of it like when the Soviet Union made the AK47 the standard issue weapon for the red army . It not only caught the west by surprise , but it forced the west to issue a similar weapon in order not to be at a disadvantage , in our case , the M16 . The russians forced the world with one single action to abandon the rifle as the main weapon …….forever . I hear ya , but technology does have a place . Just sayin

        With you there but I went full in on the primers and powder, we are still getting primers every week,some powders are a little harder to find.
        But those are powders that can be used in mult cals.
        My supplier called me one early morning to let me know a fellow reloader passed and he was unloading all the mans inventory. So yes I bought him out. I mean why buy a pound of powder when you can get eight. As far as ammo shortage goes panic buying will claim down just like the gun market has.
        Myself and most of my shooting buddies have not bought a single round in months.. Stack them primers to the ceiling.

          I stocked up a while back. We must have some of the same shops as Texas, Texas being a suburb of Lousiana ;)Primers are still around, powder, only if you want an off brand that is hard to find charge data for. Cant find .45, .38., 9mm, .223, .308 bullets. I wont say how many I can reload, but I will be ok. My motto is double the rounds you have on hand, you should be able to reload. I ordered a couple new dies to expand to a few more calibers. They told me they would arrive “this year”.
          I went to Academy to get their daily allotment of ammo. It was a joke. You can have one box per day. THe only Ar stuff that was left was some 5.56. Most folks didnt buy one that chambers both. It was steel cased, so I passed on it.
          Primers and powder are the most important. You cant easily make either. We can always cast bullets if we absolutely have to. Brass will be everywhere.

            Casting bullets will be the way to go if need be. And yes I’m Texan, just way up north in Texas. I think it was NetRanger that talked about the steel cases last yr, He claimed they could indeed be reloaded a couple of times.

              I do my best to avoid shooting steel casings in anything semi-auto. dont want to bust my barrel. I have some as a last resort. I was saving brass even before I was reloading, because I knew one day it would be needed. I need to get a old school scale, if my batteries run out, then I will be old school on everything.
              I have never loaded bullets with gas checks. I guess I need to get comfortable with it.
              Thanks, I will pick up a few if I can get across the river to Cabellas or Bass Pro. I hate going through Baton Rouge.

              First I have heard of steel case problems busting a barrel. Have used steel cases( copper wash) for years with plenty of rapid fire with no problems. Lacquer coated steel cases did gum the breech up some. Now there is a powder coat works fine. I have heard of reloading steel cases but have to redrill if berdan primer. Some weapons do not like steel cases becase the steel case does not expand and seal the chamber needed to cycle properly as with brass. AK’s and SKS’s are just fine with steel case for they are designed for that usage. I have also used 9mm aluminium (CCI) cases with no problem.

                  I don’t do any reloading. I have had a thin case or overcharged explosion in the past with brass casing. Blew the extractor off the bolt. Flash of gas in the face and the gas pressure also blew the magazine clear of remaining bullets.
                  Could not hear well for a few days. Was like a bomb and it was .223 reloads. Hence no more reloads. There was some Malaysian .223 that were overcharge a few years back. No other reports of bad ammo on the market

                • Bulldog,

                  175gr FMJBT is the heaviest .308 Win loads I’ve worked up hand loads for. They are just about the heaviest projectile I’ve loaded in .308 Win that doesn’t compress the powder. They are very accurate but about 150/fpm slower that the standard 168gr projectile.

                  225gr sounds like .338 territory. I’d be willing to bet it’s a very slow projectile from a .308 Win with a lot of ballistic bullet drop, and it might be a real handful. Watch for signs of overpressure as you work up the loads. Do you use a chronograph to validate your velocities?

                  I might suggest performing a ballistic energy calculation while you’re at it. The lighter faster projectiles often delivery more accuracy, energy, and flatter trajectories than the heavier bullets. Have fun.

              This is a popular misconception.
              Proper bullet fit, lubrication and chamber pressure vs. alloy are the keys to cast bullet performance.
              Plain base bullets can be pushed to 2K+ without undue leading or loss of accuracy when done right.

I’ve never tried casting lead bullets, never liked the lower velocity and extra barrel fouling, but am definitely thinking about it now. I at least need to get a mold for the .50 cal muzzle-loader.

                  beware of using battery lead , the acid in the lead makes
                  it ‘blow up’ when added to the molten lead already in
                  the melting pot! I learned this the hard way! Go to the
                  junkyard and get wheel-weights cheap. They make quite
                  hard bullets that won’t lead your barrel at reasonable
                  velocities.
                  I used to screen the backstop hill at the local gun club trap-range for lead shot by the ton. Extremely hard, have
                  used it up to 2,000fps without barrel leading. Melt it
                  outside though, it uses arsenic to make it hard and you
                  don’t want to inhale the fumes.
                  Hope this helps. Further questions? Just ring my bell….

                I would soak the lead material from the battery in a baking soda solution till it stops fizzing. Ever clean a battery compartment. Litmus paper test after wash off.
                Bake the lead at a temperature to remove all moisture.
                Then go to melt and casting. Wear protective clothes and goggles as moisture is not conducive with molted metal. Explodes!

                DPS,

                On a public forum I’d stay away from battery lead. You might store your batteries in a secure cache and let me know where the cache is so I can dispose of them properly.

                Lead is fine, i.e., wheel weights, plumbing lead as drain traps, exc., and plumbing solder (very valuable because of its tin content), and linotype. Learn its content as to lead, antimony and tin.

                “Number 2″ lead mix is what you want for a hard-cast mix.

                I like, where supplies allow, 90% lead, 9% antimony and 1% tin. Pistol bullets don’t need gas checks and in my opinion should not have gas checks. I load my .44 mag with 250 grain hard-cast plain base bullets to 1,200 fps. This load is a good big game killer.
                Tin is expensive, but what isn’t, funny money everywhere.

                00 buck and black powder projectiles are cast of pure lead as are cores for core bonded jacketed bullets.

                Stack it deep.

                A 170 grain hard-cast gas checked bullet such as Lyman’s 308291 loaded to 1,900 fps cycles the bolt for my M1 Garand and is extremely accurate to 600 yards. All lead bullets are lubricated. For me the lube is not a problem in the gas cylinder. This 170 grain bullet is also excellent in my 03-A3s.

                I regularly kill elk and moose with a 250 grain hard-cast, gas checked bullet out of my .35 Whelen at 2,000 fps. I have never lost a head of game with that bullet and load.

                Hope this helps.

                If you want something that is rather unconventional yet laser death try the 125 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip with 49 grains of Varget. Start @ 48 and work up.. @ around 3150 fps all kinds of critters start to explode.. Great fun..

                Kulafarmer,

                I used to shoot the .308 (7.62×51 NATO) when it replaced the 30-06 (M1 Garand and 03-A3) in the military, thought I’d give it a workout. The .308 is a superb cartridge and in the 700 Remington with scope is a fine sniper rifle. I’m sure there are other good combinations.

                A long time ago I exhaustively tested four of my rifles, (bought back when there was still silver in our dimes)
                configured thus: All four rifles in pre 64 Winchesters, two in .308 and two in 30-06. One rifle in each caliber fitted with Lyman’s 48 receiver sight and one rifle in each caliber fitted with a Redfield 3×9 scope. I spent the day shooting them at a target at 600 yards.

                I have always preferred my M1 Garand (the best rifle ever made) and my 03-A3s.

                In the .308 I like the Sierra 180 grain bullet with 48 grains of 4831. Hornady’s 165 grain bullet is also fine. 4895 is also a very good powder. For a squib load I like a 190 grain hard-cast lead, gas checked bullet with 7 grains of Unique. One hole at 50 yards, only a soft “pop”.

                An excellent hunting load in .308 with hard-cast lead gas checked bullet is 20 grains of 2400. Good for deer and antelope.

                Hope this helps.

            Not sure where you are but in the last week our guns stores have been getting resupplied lots of semi autos pistol and some rifles. I have also noticed the AR-15 thats was $2000 last week can be had for $1200 to $1500.
            I also just got back from the reloading store, he had set me back some smr &smp primers. But they had a ton of lrg rifle and pistol primers. Bullets are starting to flow in again also. Powder is in short supply for the good stuff. All I can say is buy when you find & always carry enough cash to pay for it..

          Some of my silver was acquired at face value, some was actually given to me. A job in the mid-1980s gave every employee a one-ounce silver coin with certificate. I still occasionally find a silver dime or quarter in change. I examine all change, pull the nickels and pre-1982 pennies, and put the rest in the piggy bank for hard times. Keep the foreign change just in case. Haven’t found any Chinese money yet.

        I want everyone out there to be fully prepared for the next debacle certain to come from some gun grabbing creep like that medusa ogress feinsteinless, “how much ammunition you can possess”. Yes this is almost a certain bill or executive order to come, limiting the good citizens of this country to probably less than 500 rounds per household. While not enforceable really, it will be the next line of horse crap attack against the 2nd amendment. They will likely not only put fines with such violations, but also they will try to make it illegal to own firearms if you break the “regulation”.

        I know this sounds horrible, but BO and those that hate Americans being able to defend themselves have all sorts of these plans. They already limit how much ammo you can purchase in many police run states that hate guns. I can imagine this one also, that if you commit any crime higher than a misdemeanor that the state or the feds have the right to search your property for violations of the firearms laws and excessive ammo laws. Time to get some nice PVC pipe and start burying your ammo I guess. I have upset myself today with my doom and gloom, however it is very likely that BO and others will attempt to pass these type of laws in the near future. It is all coming to a head.

Not sure. If a collapse happens and they are bunkered in underground. I would love to see these dems and gop trying to live together! lol It would be hell for them to try and govern and they all would be so bull-headed and not able to work with each other and they would be fighting with each other so bad. If they can’t even agree on simple things, how the hell are they going to live with each other underground. lol I think its funny.

        They have their heads so far up their asses the power struggle would eat them alive and at each other. I would rather be living in a destroyed neighborhood with good people that care about each other and help each other than be trapped underground living with these assholes. Then if they come out of their holes and people are still around, there are going to be a lot of people that might take a cheap-shot at some of them, Im not saying i would. I would avoid these bastards just like I lost all my guns.

        Ladies practice shooting and don’t panic if you are ever in a hostile environment. Believe in yourself and relax. Shooting and robberies are nothing like the movies so ignore them and be consistant and relaxed. believe me the receiving side of the bad guys are going to be nervous of being shot, so don’t think you are the only ones that might be scared in a tough situation.

Missouri where millions $ were spent and thousands of LEO hours logged and no gun was found, and not even one suspect was ever charged, even when nearly the entire town was questioned (>300 pop.)?

          I just read MO’s HB 436 which is a nullification bill that’s got quite a bit of support in MO.

          HB 436 will void all laws, acts, and orders from the past, present or future, that infringe on the second amendment, “It shall be the duty of the courts and law enforcement agencies of this state to protect the rights of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms within the boarder of this state from the infringements in subsection 3 of this section. No public officer or employee of this state shall have any authority to enforce or attempt to enforce any of the infringements on the right to keep and bear arms included in subsection 3 of this section. Any official, agent, or employee of the United States government who enforces or attempts to enforce any of the infringements on the right to keep and bear arms included in subsection 3 of this section is guilty of a class A misdemeanor. Any Missouri citizen who has been subject to an effort to enforce any of the infringements on the right to keep and bear arms included in subsection 3 of this section shall have a private cause of action for declaratory judgment and for damages against any person or entity attempting such enforcement.”

          A class A Misdomeanor has a maximum penalty of 1 year in jail and up to $1000 fine.

Google it you wont be wasting your time. They have mainly reloading and have very good prices. Better than I have seen anywhere else ever. They even beat midway and major gun dealers. IF you looking for some stuff I will tell you. I visit a gunshop in different city at least 3 times a week. Just trying to help you guys.

        Isn’t PA, NY and a lot of midwest democratic states? I’m not surprised you are finding quantities in those areas. Why would the nanny states buy ammo and guns. I believe it is a different story in conservative states.

          Kindle, PA is mixed. Philly is pure Dem, home to those tough-ass New Black Panthers. I don’t think there was one single Romney vote in all of Philly last November. ROFL! Rural is more conservative. Remember the Obama “bitter clingers” gaffe about those Pennsylvanians who cling to their guns or religion?

            Then why does some parts of the country have ammo & guns available and other parts are wiped out? I keep thinking there must be a reason to it. Everywhere I go in Colorado the shelves are bare with people waiting in line on “truck day.” Just curious.

              Kindle, maybe others can explain the phenomenon. Seems to me the store’s region, customer base, and mode of selling has something to do with inventory on hand versus back-ordered stock.

              I don’t know, they probably have huge sales and a good order history with some of these stores in Pa. Thats my guess. If you got a store with large purchases constantly they are probably going to serve that store first when they re-order their stuff or political reasons. I dont have the answer to this.

                Good point. From my corporate retail days we did order by regional sales. We would often have to order SIX MONTHS out…could what we are seeing is the high selling stores getting their orders that were already in the pipeline (on order)?

                I wonder what it will look like once we pass the 6 month time frame?

              As for Colorado? I think its a mix of things. I don’t think what I’m going to say covers everything, but,… First, a large section of voters in the state don’t affiliate with either the R or the D party and a big section of the population is influenced by a libertarian mindset, even though the Libertarian Party doesn’t have much sway. Frontier history is part of the culture of the state. Put that all together and you have a pretty independent minded population. Its an open carry state and a conceal carry state. You can expect guns pretty much everywhere, with a few exceptions and the gun free zones. People want to make sure they have something to shoot and that they don’t just just a fancy metal club. So it follows demeand for ammo will be high. Second, you need to look at what is percolating in the state legislature. Everybody is so focused on the federal level gun control stuff. On top of that, Colorado has double digit pieces of proposed gun control legislation that is making its way through commitees right now. (I don’t remember the exact number) But anyone that supports the USC 2nd Amendment and the article in the Colorado State Constitution that also recognizes the right of citizens to keep and bear arms, will find the scope of the legislation disturbing. For example, this week (2/12/13) hearings were held on HB1224, which is a proposed law that deals with magazine capacity (ie 10 round limit)and ownership, etc. This isn’t the only “gun control” hearing being held. Third, I think people are buying whatever ammo they can, when they can because of all the uncertainty inside the state and with the economy. (Prices aren’t generally going down on much of anything.) Ultimately, shooting is a perishable skill. You have to practice to keep your accuracy skills up. I know this doesn’t explain everything, but I think it gets part of why the shelves in Colorado are pretty empty.

            Yes rural Pa in the center and to the left where pittsburgh Pa is more republican I think than philly. Philly is DEM maxed and some. Center where harrisburg is there are a lot of tactical gun stores that cant stand dems! they are very right conservative. In washington Pa (ace gun store) they had a wall solid filled with ar-15′s over 200 of them gone after the shooting. they get a lot of ar-15′s and carry a few 50 barretts. But yes Pa is very mixed emotionally charged. they can’t stand Obama and all agree fuck Obama we will not ever or register our guns. this is talk at the gun shops of what is going on in southern Pa near the border of west virginia.

            • You’re right clint, Harrisburg area has a lot of conservative gun owners. The city itself is pretty much bankrupt with a Dem mayor,but anywhere outside of town you won’t fuck with the gun owners. I live quite a distance west of there but worked around Harrisburg for 30 years. They just had their 2nd homicide of the year yesterday. Guy beat another in the head with a 2 lb hammer. Should outlaw 2 lb hammers,I guess. Pa also has a republican governor so they may shy away from new gun laws. The only one in the pipe now as far as I can see is one about not recognizing out of state gun permits if you are a Pa resident and can’t get one here.I hope I worded that right.

      Not exactly true. My local shops suddenly have dozens of sub-$1,000 AR’s and AKs available. The primarily military style gun craze peaked around two weeks ago and prices are falling fast now that it’s clear there won’t be any significant ban (or any ban that would actually be obeyed). The speculators who were doubling and tripling what they invested in AR/AKs 30 to 45 days ago are now scambling to dump their guns before they are stuck with them. Ammo is still peaking, but hey… I’ve bought over 10,000 rounds of bulk .22lr at local establishments for at $20 per 500. Yeah, CCI minimags are $30 to $50 per 500 and Stingers/Velocitors are around $60/500, but I can get them all on most days at those prices.

            If you’re looking for some off-the-wall calibers like 7.5mm Swiss, .30 Mauser, stuff like that, Prvi is the place to go. Their .303 British is good fuel for the SMLE.

            Their 7.62x54R, brass cased, boxer-primed, totally reloadable, is running about $0.65 a round even now, a great online deal and reloadability makes it cheaper than corrosive surplus once you reload the case twice.

            Here’s my buying experience today. Last night I happened to see Federal 500# .22 lr in stock at the local Walmart. I thought I was seeing things. But it was late and I thought I’d go this morning.

            Well, there was a line waiting at the door this morning. I had a feeling I knew what for. Sure enough everyone shoved their way back in a clump, no civility, everyone trying to body block the others from the ammo case.

            There were 4 boxes, so 2 people got it (Walmart has now a 3 box maximum). The first guy got 3 boxes and had to depart from a pretty angry group. Didn’t seem to bother him. What are they going to do? Shoot him? Oh wait… no ammo.

Nothing in pistol caliber at all. Some 22LR in shot shell snake killer stuff. A single box of 20 guage slugs. No 223, 308, 303, 30-30 etc and so on.

            I’m not so sure that burning him to a crisp would have been a particularly bad thing… just in the scheme of things… he sort of lost my sympathy when he killed the guy’s daughter that had nothing to do with anything.

            But then, coming from LEO’s… yeah it’s a bad thing. It comes back to an issue of trusting them to use a reasonable level of force. If they were upset because several got shot all I can say is… I’m sorry but you knew what you signed up for. This is a job that has a non-trivial possibility of ending in death. Personally I can’t see why anyone would want said job but eh…

          True, but then – why do the cops fall for it?

          When we can surf to youtube and spend hours watching videos that I suspect were uploaded deliberately as part of the psy-op that you are referring to – and which show sadistic, brutal, blood-thirsty psychopaths with badges beating the snot out of citizens for the flimsiest of excuses or tasering grannies in wheel-chairs or watching 240lb steroid addicted skin head cops picking up 110 lb teen age girls and slamming them face first against the wall and then grabbing them by the hair and banging their heads against a wall – there is a point where we ought to start asking a few questions.

          Such as: Are these cops actors and are they acting out these abuses and recording them for upload, as part of their cooperation in this psy-op? Or, are they simply an accurate reflection of just how out of control these jackbooted thugs have become?

          In either case, uploading videos of their abusive tactics – is a deliberate action on someone’s part. Those cop car cameras have high capacity SD cards or maybe high capacity removable media such as thumb drives in them. Those videos don’t wind up on youtube without someone posting them there, right? Same goes for the videos we see from inside police stations and surveillance rooms – someone has to upload those videos.

          Who is that someone? Would a cop that did the deed do it, and risk losing his job? I doubt it. So, who?

          I agree, thousands of rounds is rather pointless.

          1. If you’re planning on hunting, so is everyone else. Pickings are going to get sparser than ammo real real fast. But, initially, for I dunno, a few months, and then later again after like 5-10 years… ok that makes some sense.

          2. You need enough to defend yourself from bad guys (perhaps on multiple occasions). I rather suspect however, if you’re alone or in a small group and you have to blow through more than 30 on any one occasion… you’re not walking away from said occasion. Not likely.

          Really 500-1000 ought to do it and even that’s a pretty insane number. But I’m factoring in the idea that you won’t be able to get anymore for circa 20 years.

      • the amount of ammo to stock is up to your shooting habits. keeping an unfired stock that you never intend to use for target practice would be a very wise choice.

        all ammo is high in cost right now..I really cant say what factory .45 is going for, or what would be fair, i build my own

          Like i said, i just recently picked it up and this will be the first 45 ammo that i will be stocking up on.

          My 7.62×39 cache is approx. 1k +. I also have an assortment of other guns and ammo, but i was just curious as to how everyone felt about the 45 cache.

        How much ammo for a 45? Not the worlds best question. How much do you plan on shooting it? If you target shoot 100 rds per week you need a lot. If you figure on shooting burglars, 2 clips should be plenty, unless you have a huge h\flock of crooks. Defence issues, who knows, never heard of anyone shooting 100 rds for real in combat from a pistol. As a wise man once said the only use for a pistol in combat is to shoot your way to your rifle.

        As much as you can find, and can afford… and hope if they have it in stock and you want more than one or three boxes they don’t limit you. As for me – I never turn away from a box of ammo now if I have the money to spare

        “Has there been an increase in prices for 45 auto ammo that anyone knows of?”

          I’ve always liked the 1k rule for each gun. This will give me a lot of breathing room if everything came to a complete halt!

          One more question in regards to 45 ammo. I keep seeing the Zombie ammo on sale and its always cheaper than others. Are they known for jamming or something, because their always available? If i had a glock instead of a 1911 i would probably go ahead and get some, but i would hate to get something that i would have to sit on. I know with my AK i dont have to worry about what kind of rounds to get since it eats up and spits out anything i feed it. Since they’re so cheap i may get a box and see how they do and go from there.

          Thanks to everyone for all of your input!!!

        @ JustOneGuy. I want to thank you for digging up my previous posts on the Asian and North American plate collisions that are going on, you RULE. I saw the other comments from Norse Prepper and others on the previous article yesterday and I felt that everyone should know what is happening and I decided to comment on the present article after first talking about the nightmare gun and ammo grab certain to come.

        Simply put this area of Siberia has been hit only 4 times in 40 years of records and each time at a 7+ earthquake came afterwards with a couple of high 6′s. The areas were New Guinea, Mexico, South Sandwich Islands, and south of New Zealand, and one 6.6 towards Sumatra. The larger the quake here the larger the future earthquake is coming. The previous earthquakes were 5.0, 5.4, 5.3, and 6.1 in this region of Siberia. This one was 6.6 or 6.9 depending on the seismic station. All I can say is look out something awful is coming as was stated before, these are the two heavyweights having a sumo wrestling match.

        To have an earthquake here, an area that is not suppose to have anything above a high 5 range is really telling. Wihin 15 days, by March 1, there is a 85% of a 7+, and a 95% of a 6.5+. There is at least a 50% of a 7.5+, and a 35% chance of a 8.0+, and 30% chance of a mega quake of 9+. I may actually be understating the chances.

        Here is the thing about the location. On the previous posts about the West Chile Rise and the South Indian Ocean. I mentioned eastern Russia as one of the target areas for a 6.5+ by later in the month. The system works again. The cycle in a way has reset itself. While the areas mentioned still remain potential targets such as China, and especially the international dateline, the real targets right now from this earthquake are limited to the following:

        New Guinea to Fiji
        Central America, including southern and central Mexico.
        New Zealand and the Kermadec Islands
        South Sandwich Islands

        That is it for this earthquake. Until future earthquakes hit on the plate boundaries to determine the energy signatures, these areas are in extreme danger for the rest of the month. I would also add that eastern Russia has some true potential for a big volcanic eruption VEI 5 or more for the next 6 weeks.

Anyway, I was reading on another site this morning, above top secret. A headline caught my eye as I have friends in the area they were talking about. I don’t have a link, but it was entitled something like ” strange noise” back in East Tennessee. Low freq. noise, rumbling of homes reported by many. They had some charts but were unable to read them due to lack of knowledge on the subject. No one seems to know what’s going on up there, earthquakes, tremors, ? Strange things happening, bird die offs. I thought maybe you might be interested in looking over the data. I would be interested in your opinion as well as my friend who lives there and has experienced this first hand. Lots of speculation going on up there.

            @ AnnieOakley. A lot of times before a large ship is going to sink you hear all sorts of moaning and sudden booms. The ground is not too much different, as any type of disruption in the equalibrium of the ground can cause these “strange” sounds. Some of what you are talking about can even be the displacement of groundwater through excessive wells pumping up too much water. Any type of action that causes any imbalance of the ground can cause these strange sounds. There was still something that was most disturbing that could explain these sounds.

            On a map there was a line of these sounds from the Texas area all the way across to about North Carolina and then up along the coast to past Rhode Island. This line matched the northern border of the Caribbean plate. In 1812 there was a mega quake down in Venezuela when the New Madrid broke three times, along with the central portion of the San Andreas, all within about 5 months of each other. No way was this a coincidence. The southern portion of the Caribbean plate is where the mega quake occurred in 1812.

            I have heard bizarre explanations for sudden bird die offs all the way from cloaked alien spaceships that the birds ran into, all the way to sudden disruptions of space and time. The most plausible reason I think, other than manmade pesticides or sudden loud noices that scare the animals to death, is noxious gases that come out of the ground and the birds fly into these clouds and suffocate themselves. Around volcanic vents in Africa rift zone this happens all the time where animals literally go into an area void of oxygen and just pass out and die. I watched this one show where this monitor lizard actually figured out what was happening and got out of the area where it could breathe and saved itself. Monitor lizards are actually quite intelligent for any reptile.

            You look at many of these areas that birds suddenly die off and there is fracking going on for example. Gases can dissipate quickly before anyone knew what happened, and can form within temperature inversion in quite concentrated amounts. Hundreds of thousands of birds this would explain it, as the insects would die off first and the birds would then go to feast on the insects and suffer the same fate. I don’t know if others have come up with this explanation, but it seems the most logical to me. The reason why those gases are coming up in areas not being fracked is what would be alarming.

            Is it plausible that there is a connection between solar activity and tectonic plate movements? Could the varying degrees solar radiation act as a lubricant of such? As we are moving through the suns solar cycle and activity is peaking, so are the seismic events it seems.

              Quite actually, though not entirely at this moment. Solar activity has been suprisingly low during this, cycle 24, and of late little which can be attributed thereto.

              Broadly, the Earth is just a large bar magnet and if you have anything resembling a current passing anywhere near to it in space (ie, a CME) then yes, there is a coupling bewtween the two. As said though, lately not much.

            @ JustOneGuy. It is very interesting to see what is happening up in the eastern Russia area, you can see the plate boundaries that have been compressed for so long between the Asian, North American and the Pacific plate. The Pacific plate of course is less dense and losing the battle as the Pacific Ocean is actually shrinking in size. There is a lot of built up pools of magma as this article I found the other day explains towards New Zealand: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2277413/The-supervolcano-forming-Pacific-wipe-life-dont-panic–100-million-years-erupts.html

            There of course give a time table of 100 million years, but it does not mean that this built up pool cannot shoot out a supervolcano or two in the upcoming very near future. The action we are seeing between the two sumo wrestlers, the Asian and North American plates, can cause much pressure on the Pacific plate and lead to something horrible. Just look at the volcanoes already going off in eastern Russia. This is why I said from this collision of the two plates it can lead to a much larger that Mt. St. Helens eruption in this area. Even something as large as a Mt Pinatubo level like back in 1991 in the Philippines.

            This area of Russia around the Kamchatka Peninsula I think because of this triple plate convergence is capable of a super mega earthquake approaching the high 9 range. This area back in the 50′s had a low 9 pointer. The Kuril Isalnds are also a lesser danger for a mega quake. Just when this area has been hit before, always a 7+ has followed. Remember when the plate boundary was hit several weeks ago and sure enough a big quake followed. This is an area that seldom gets hit, but when it does big earthquakes follow. This time this was huge for the area, and in all likelihood indicates that something huge is coming in the days or a couple weeks later.

              God has everything to do with everything, otherwise He is not God. Somethings he causes to happen, others He allows to happen.
              The theology you expouse was first put forth by Jacob Arminius and rejected by the Church Fathers of the day. As I recall old Jake was put to death for his non-biblical teachings. It is nothing but theology for the simple minded.
              The problem is, if you take your view, God just sits around and watches while we “Play God”. What a very small God you have then. This is not Biblical, nor does fulfill God’s role of King/God.

              If you follow that line of thought, man can save himself, yet scripture tells us that all have sinned and the heart is wicked.Ephiesians 2:1 (And you He made alive who were dead in trespasses and sins) No Free Will there. The Bible is full of the term “The elect”, or God’s chosen.
              Yes, God knows what is going to happen because it is all in His plan. Yes He allows bad things to happen and at times He does not anser prayer the way we would like Him to because His plan may not include what we ask for.

        • Last American,
          We are brainwashed about the whole ‘Godly authority’ thing. This was put in the bible by Rome, who edited the scriptures for their own church/empire building. The idea of this came out of Babylon, where the Babylon Mystery religion was the third arm of government as the priests told people to ‘submit to God given authority’.

          Where is Godliness in a government that kicks God out of the schools, the womb, the public square, and now we have no rights to our own bodies or self defense of our persons? This is malevolence, pure evil. This is what governments ALWAYS END UP being… and we, the Good guys allowed it. We laid down on the altar of Liberty and took a nap, our individuality is our greatest strength and our Achilles heel. We are divided by the MYSTERY of the church, good people enabling evil by doctrines of devils. What is a doctrine of devils? Any doctrine that enables evil… like… apathy, waiting around for ‘Jesus to fix it’? This is the result of mystery and superstition overriding our common sense of decency and God given rights, that we gave up when we allowed government to take God away from the education system, we sewed the wind and look what a whirlwind we have reaped.

          Think, would God require people to watch their elderly and their children die at the hands of a ‘Godly’ authority? IS self defense extended to the family? By all rights then, is it not extended to extended family? So what is an extended family? All the ‘good guys’? Will preachers turn against the hand that feeds them their tax free 30 pieces of silver? The oldest scriptures are more truthful… who does HE say are HIS hands of JUSTICE?

          The Lord looked and was displeased that there was no justice. He saw that there was no one, He was appalled that there was no one to intervene. (Isaiah 59:15-16)

          Blessed are they who maintain justice . . . . (Psalm 106:3)

    23. keep your stock up, dont expell any un-necessary rounds, if you dont have what it takes to re-load what you shoot, than dont shoot it.

      I have a lower limit on specific ammo, if that number is reached that group of arms sits idle while i source the components.

      I also keep my proficiancy by shooting smaller arms, even going as far as a pellet gun if necessary to stay tactically sharp.

      I bet a S-load of new gun owners and back yard wanna bees already blazed thru their ammo stock, and now own a goofy looking baseball bat.

      I have a guy at work buggin me for 9mm, ( i dont own anything that small, and not sure if i want to deal with re-loading it) he said he went and picked up a new 9mm semi auto, went and bought a few boxes for it and ran thru it, than went to pick up a few more boxes for it this past week and , what ya know he got the rude wake up call that those who have not been paying attention get, when they get to the ammo case and its empty.

My normal routine is to rotate out my carry ammo monthly, buy new ammo to replace what I have pulled out of stock and use the old ammo that I was carrying to practice with. This insures that I alway have frech ammo. Never shoot up all of your ammo and expect to replace it later. May not happen before you need it.

I was at the range shooting it out of a HK91 and the gun was all kinds of mad. It would cycle but the roller blocks wouldn’t lock up so the next round wouldn’t fire. I’d cycle by hand for a new round and it would happen again. And then I saw one round hit the ground about 50′ in front of me when I was aimed at a 100 yard target and immediately stopped shooting for fear I’d end up with a stuck bullet in the barrel. The ammo looked fine, no corrosion, definitely not green, bullets had good tension, primers looked okay. But that ammo was worthless. And of course I went back to the gun show the next day and the vendor was long gone.

        Good points, VFR.

        For every 1,000 rounds of reloadable ammo, and it’s all reloadable, I pull out 100 rounds to shoot, keeping 900 rounds in reserve. I’ve been doing this for the past 50 years. I get 30-35 shots from most of my brass. That’s 3,500 shots from 100 rounds of brass. By the time the primer pockets loosen I’ve replaced the 100 rounds of brass many times. I cast all of my bullets. They are very efficient, accurate and dependable.

        Along the same note, there are several excellent machinists who have become completely bogged down with Govt orders — so much so that regular customers have been put through very long delays. One machinist in the PW we do biz with hired more staff and built onto the existing structure to accommodate the Feds. While business might be good on the spreadsheet, don’t think any investment w/ the Feds is the way to go.

      Dry Gun Drill Skill Practice – practice your gun handling skills weekly .

      first treat all guns as if they are loaded .

      never point a weapon at anything you don’t intend to destroy .

      finger “off trigger” resting straightened along side of gun trigger housing till weapon pointed at target you intend to destroy .

      check for loaded rounds in gun chambers and ensure the magazines are empty of ammo .

      also do not dry fire rim-fired bullet guns rifles such as .22 LR , damages them .

      dry practice drill your draw breath control fire re-load .

      practice repeatedly re-loading in the dark .

      practice using a flashlight and aiming moving firing .

      practice one handed , with both hands , doing the above drills . double practice with your weak hand .

      practice practice practice .

      oil wipe down your guns after each use , same with your gear , store cleaned dry lightly oiled safely secured away from untrained children . store extra back up flash light with gun and prime gun light .

      remember always treat all guns rifles as loaded at all times even unloaded weapons , only point weapons at targets you intend to destroy .

        ATC:

        Thanks for bringing this up. IMHO dry fire practice is the best way to get that muscle memory in tune, especially drawing from concealment, mag changes and trigger resets. I also make it a point to practice from positions that I would normally be in, such as driving in my truck. Quick drawing the ole XD 45 from a concealment holster, while seated in a pickup can be a challenge, but one that needs to be practiced, since we normally can’t make an appointment for an emergency.

        Thanks again

Eastern Russia was mentioned as one of the locations to be hit by Feb.25 by a 6.5+. Today Feb.14 in Siberia a 6.6 or 6.9 depending on the source hit just like predicted. To those that dislike these forecasts you have to admit the system works, at least give a little credit to this.

          @ Todd. I was doing a little bit of examining the plates tonight on my globe, the only way to really see what is happening on a three dimensional scale, and something rather bothersome came up. If you take a tape measure and go directly up from the west coast of South America to the Siberian quake today, that direction take you right through the very center of the New Madrid. This bothers me because the North American and South American plates are drifting in a way much like you would see an opened pair of scissors. The South American pate is moving towards the west with a slight southerly direction, while the North American plate is moving west by northwest.

          If you take the plates and follow this as you would a pair of scissors from the point at which they met outward, from that point it follows to the southern most part of the New Madrid. This is what is so disturbing is that this earthquake from Siberia right down to the South Sandwich Island region along most of the west coast of South America, again right through the New Madrid. I would say there could be a risk IF you see a very large earthquake in the South Sandwich Islands region. This area 8 days after an earthquake in Siberia on June 22, 2008 that was 6.1, had a quake of 7.0. The South Sandwich area is on what is called the Scotia plate.

          I would be very worried for the New Madrid if you had a 7.5+ down on the Scotia plate and even more so if you had a very large quake along the west coast of South America after this Siberian quake. It would mean that some line of connection had been established that would pass through the New Madrid. As more earthquakes present themselves this should be clearer. Anyway my eyes are totally bugging out from trying to figure this. I think in a couple of weeks we will know what will happen, and at least Indianapolis at not right on top of the fault, about 150 miles to the east will give you some degree of reduction in shaking if it should go. Just watch for any of these future on this line for big earthquakes to indicate increased risk of the fault breaking.

            Thanks BI! I really appreciate the analysis! It makes me feel a little better that you don’t see any immediate threat to the area. And knowing that Indy is 150 miles is a good thing too. I wasn’t exactly sure where that fault runs exactly. I’m going to save your comment so if there are large quakes in the next couple weeks, I can reference it as to the areas you said you watch out for.

          @ ed. The largest quake in the DC area probably would be a high 5 to low 6 range, that would be pushing it as the most likely would be a mid 5 range. The best chance for a natural disaster here would be another hurricane stronger than Sandy, that is very possible. You could always get a small asteroid that would scream in. Only a 25-30 footer would take out most of the area. Of course when any area such as DC has that much stupidity and wickedness in it, the area could implode all by itself. ;)

          @ Paranoid. You ask why should you care about a earthquake in Siberia. Good question. The answer is because you and most of the people here ride on the North American plate, and this earthquake in Siberia showed a tremendous type of collision going on between the North American and Asian plate, both that are mostly continental crust. The Pacific plate is mostly oceanic crust that is much less dense and heavy. When these two sections of crusts show this type of push against each other, the entire planet is affected because of the enormity of both of these plates. The twisting of the North American plate could easily set off the New Madrid fault for example, along with the San Andreas and Cascadia.

          The research I do shows that when something happens all the way on the other side of the planet, it often affects something thousands of miles away. This is one reason these earthquake forecasts are accurate, because this is taken into account what a section of crust can do to another. Your question is something that many people ask. The main answer to this is that the planet is not that big, and the crust is actually linked in almost if not all areas. In other words you have the African plate go into spasms and this could set off the Pacific plate in several locations. Can of like when you have a tiny little chip in the windshield and you go over the wrong bump and this crack migrates to several spots in the windshield. Then you wish you had gone in and had that little ding in window cored out and fixed for 1/3 the cost. In short, what happens somewhere far away can and does sometimes affect where you live right under your feet.

It is not apologizing it is more that I want to focus attention on why anyone would have an issue with trying to forecasts disasters on a site SHTFplan that caters to trying to figure out something before it happens. I highly value your solar reports and trying to tie into what is going to happen with the world. Others though consider it OFF subject, which is pure horse manure. I just can’t understand anyone that would attack something the relates to the main theme of the site, preparedness.

            There have been many different people that contribute something to the site that have been very critical of the earthquake and solar reports. These people I would hate to lose, as we need everyone’s ideas to help us get ready for what is coming. The stupid trolls that try to destroy the sites like that cockroach finx, that psycho Joker in NC, and many others can go f a knothole in some sycamore tree. It is the people that add good ideas that don’t understand the importance of earthquake and other disaster forecasting that I am concerned about and why I try to explain myself to them.

      Here’s an interesting article posted at the jewish Forward blog section.

      The very same tribe of arrogant, totalitarian gun grabbers are beginning to notice that the NRA is compiling and tracking the list of names of their tribe members and making the identity of the #1 enemy of the Second Amendment known to their membership. This is a very, very good sign.

      I notice that the jewish author of this article must have accidentally forgot to mention that the last time the jews managed to disarm a nation (Russia, 1917) that the end result was the systematic mass murder of over 66 million White Europeans of Russian and Ukrainian descent.

      That had to be an innocent oversight, I’m sure.

    31. Imagine if all those Anti-Federalists hadn’t demanded a Bill of Rights. Thank God for their distrust of the federal government. The Bill of Rights is the only part of the Constitution still standing in the way of tyranny. Remember that we have a legal right and obligation to stand up against any violation of the Bill of Rights. If the government passes gun laws, their the criminals, not us for ignoring their illegal laws that have no authority beyond their ability to use force which is much more difficult against an armed citizenship.

Thus the reason for limiting quanty of sales, so avg Joe might have a chance at decent prices for ammo. Although this is hear say I suspect there is some truth in the storys.
