It seems ridiculous to me that shotgun shells are flying off the shelves. There's no way that any new gun law is going to impose a restriction on shotguns or their shells!

Apparently you haven't seen the list of semi and pump shotguns that would be banned under the new regulations the dictator presented today.

I visited a Super Walmart this morning. There was fishing poles in the gun display area. I inquired of the clerk and she told me that she didn't know what was going to happen with gun sales until the president did whatever he was going to do.

I inquired about some 22 ammo. Absolutely nada! Nothing on the shelf but a couple of boxes of Universal shells.

What in the world is happening? Does this president realize that people are influenced ,by his stupidity? I have never seen the likes of it before.

The whole country is holding its breath for that man(?) to do whatever he is going to try to do. He and Uncle Joe are _______________? Fill in the blank for me.

There are 2 issues here when you look at WM. Other threads have said that they are waiting to see what comes of the Govt posturing, and not restocking their shelves. The. Other is that people are concerned how far obumma will go with restrictions, let alone congress. Despite today's announcement, I worry about the EPA being involved into looking into issues - who knows what's next, a tax on lead pollution? Don't be fooled by Govt announcements, look behind the message and think of the possibilities.

It's the human condition. In NC if you heard the word snow or hurricane, all the milk and lots of other stuff flew out the door. Fear does sell. Listen to all the ads on TV. "You could have __________ and not even know it, and it could be killing you. Get ______ ________ today."

In 2008 with the election it took 6 to 8 months for primers to be back in stock. Even worse this time. Glad I have decent stock.

Nobama's kids go to a school protected by armed guards. It takes a lot of ammo guard everything that needs to be guarded. I know I keep stocking up on more and more.

If you think this president is "stupid," what does that say for the knuckleheads acting like the world is going to end tomorrow and buying up all the ammo. Six months from now, the shelves will be restocked and we'll be buying ammo at half the price people are paying today. The ammo manufacturers and retailers thank them for running up the price!

Ammo prices are like gas prices. Once they go up they never really come back down. Yes they might come down a little but then they go right back up. Gas was less than $2 a gallon several years ago. It went up over $4 a gallon. Now it's hard to find it under $3 a gallon*

*the gas prices iim referring to are in Wichita,KS. I have no idea what they are in other parts of the country.

In approximately one year, NYS will require a nics-style background check, accompanied by a fee, to purchase any ammunition in NYS.

The price will be what the market will bear. Wally and other retailers are finding out people will pay higher prices, so they aren't going to come down very much. Keeping supply just a little short will keep prices up.

If they put restrictions on shotguns and you own one now then you will be using an illegal firearm wont matter how much ammo you buy you wont be able to legally use it.
