Ft Collins, CO –-( Ammunition situation:

This is from a friend in the commercial, high-performance ammunition manufacturing business:

“The ammunition buying frenzy, that started over the summer, has completely overwhelmed our production capacity.

We’re making product as fast as we can, but we can’t begin to keep up with demand!

All ammunition manufacturers are in the same boat, and we’re all at the mercy of our vendors. Primers, cases, bullets, and propellant, particularly propellant, are all in short supply.

I spend most of my day on the phone, alternately consoling customers and haranguing vendors!

Ammunition supplies are going to get even thinner in coming months due to an extremely unstable political climate around the world, and I don’t think the outcome of our national elections in a few days will make much difference!

We are working hard to keep up, but it looks as if this time around, the buying frenzy will continue and be something like we have never seen in the past!”


When you don’t have good supplies of ammunition, starting now is likely to be an exercise in futility and frustration!

[If Trump wins] We’ll see widespread rioting the wake of next week’s national election! Metro areas will be good places to stay out of!

It’s the same, old story:

The sage among us are prepared, and go armed. Clueless sheep will be fleeced/slaughtered!

Gosh Fellows, we are the product of your education foundation also known as “Core Corriculum: We only know what you have taught us. There are no “shop” classes any longer where we learned to make things with our hands, using the tools that were purchased with our parents taxes. There are no more “Home economics” classes for the young ladies in high school. Why? # 1- Well it all goes back to the fact that the United States Government, has taken away the responsibility of the parent to discipline their children.” If you spank me I’ll turn you over to… Read more »


Neither of the above but Mr.Trump won. Now let’s see what a difference it makes!


Clark Kent, you could be right AND you could be wrong. BUT you ARE A know it all, “RICHARD CRANIUM” always


There will be no Trump ‘landslide’, it’s gonna be a Trump ‘tsunami’. You can take that to the bank!

Divisiveness…is an agenda…and the fact is we are looking at chaos no matter which way the obviously “doctored” polls go. The author is merely stating what we all should know…rich, poor, middle class, etc etc etc ….and the looters and rioters who continually bash the more conservative constituencies in America, will be at your door. No they will not be there for intellectually stimulating conversation. As for the Sheep…well, I have always been told by my mixed blood/ BlLACKFEET/ Caucasion father that the most dangerous man ( or woman) in the world isn’t Hell-Lary Clinton, Trump or Putin. The most… Read more »


12 minutes for ar308 receiver , form 4473 , NICS and out the door on 11/5/16 . 19 more weeks for custom barrel .
Most components for ar 308 , AR10 are out of stock everywhere.
Just remember last minute everyone vote against Hillary and make news media cry.


Why do ignorant people post comments on politics and arms?


Predicting rioting if Trump wins is just plain irresponsible regardless of whether it occurs or not. Sometimes merely spreading rumors makes them abself fulfilling prophecy. You should know better.

Clark Kent

And you should know HilLIARy will be the next POTUS so throttle down, amigo, you will live longer.


And exactly what has that to do with anything?

Clark Kent

You can’t fix stupid so I have no comment on your clueless reply.


Ah yes I’m so clueless I was right. Trump won, no riots, you and Farnam were both WRONG. How about both of you manning up and apologizing?

Wild Bill

@Vann the socialist, progressive, liberal, communists never man up, are never embarrassed, and never apologize because they have no morals, no ethics, and obey no law. I look for them to “double down” because they will do anything, say anything, or slander anyone to get power.

Elder Ambassador

So says the Sage of South Central LA, a hotbed of intelligent, critical thinking.

James Bailey

Hey Farnam, On behalf of those of us who were dirt poor, crippled up, who are only able to work part-time, and who make a grand total of between $4,000 and $10,000 a year, please be so kind as to take your admonition concerning sheep and jam it up your blow hole! We poor, do what we can and how we can, which means maybe being able to buy one box, or maybe two boxes of FMJ ammo per month! One box of JHP’s once every other month! You are like the rest of the elitists in our society, no… Read more »


How’s about taking a chill pill? I understood him to be speaking of those who CHOOSE not to take care of themselves. And there are plenty, lazy and/or careless enough to let the responsibility for their lives and security fall on the shoulders of “them”…… just as Nannie has taught them since the womb. I’m largely in the same boat as you, though when the kinyun ascended the throne I did have some money and spent it well. Good job these things resist thinks like moth and rust reasonably well. I’ve got naught for such things today, but have some… Read more »


Being poor isn’t something to be ashamed of…

Being stupid in public and appearing “unbalanced” is however

Charles Valenzuela

A little hysterical at the end. Get a grip.


Spoken for TRUTH at the end; Any intelligent person can look at the past history of the world and see how the dictators came into power and gained control.
People who “think” the above article is a “little hysterical” are the ones that NEED to “get a grip” and have their head examined. The dimocraps are looking to install the biggest criminal yet into the White House and what Obama has don will look like child’s play by a moron.

Clark Kent

The truth is HilLIARy will be the next POTUS. No need to worry about riots. Don’t borrow trouble.


Trump will win the popular vote by a landslide, but if the electorial college is bought off, as George Soros has hinted, Killery will win. As far as riots, it doesn’t look good either way. I may be locked and loaded, but I have already voted and don’t plan on going anywhere.

Clark Kent

Thanks for confirming HiLIARy will be the next POTUS. And good luck proving the electoral college being ‘bought off’, especially with the Dumbocrats in charge. Once again, don’t borrow trouble.


hey clark kent, i mean superman, you must be happy hillawitch666 did not win. now there won’t be any riots, because you anti gun pussy don’t have the balls for it. you cannot take my guns, you can kill me but you can’t take my guns!!! WTF???
