Ammunition Shortage First Half 2013

Here we are approaching the half-way mark of the year (we are not there yet), and the ammunition shortage is showing no signs of letting up.

22 Long Rifle – I have not seen 22 long rifle in about 6 or 7 months. The last time I can remember seeing 22 long rifle in stock was back around November,,, maybe even October 2012.

Even before Sandy Hook 22 long rifle was difficult to find.Kevin Felts blogger and survivalist

223 Remington – Is hit sand miss. Places like Palmetto State Armory have been getting bulk 223 Remington in stock, but my local wal-mart has not.

I have not seen American Eagle or Federal at my local wal-mart in months. The local wal-mart here in Jasper Texas has been getting Tula in every few weeks, so that is what I have been buying. In this type of situation you buy what you can find.

Online stores that are lucky enough to 223/5.56mm in stock are sold out in a matter of minutes. Continue Reading….

Stay Focused On The Imporatant Things

There is so much stuff going through my head it’s difficult to stay focused. There is the new gun ban being introduced by Dianne Feinstein, ammunition shortages, magazines shortages, Iran advancing its nuclear program, tension between the US and China increasing, and then there are the ever present tensions in the middle east.Kevin Felts, Blogger and Survivalist

A couple of days ago AIM surplus got a some DS Arms FN/FAL magazines in stock. They were $17.95 each, and I was seriously considering ordering some. Think about this, the gate I want for my chicken yard is $79.99 from Tractor Supply. For the price of 4 FN/FAL magazines plus shipping would have paid for the gate.

Which is more important, having extra FN/FAL magazines, or having a gate for the chicken yard? My wife and I get eggs from our chickens everyday. Will I be using my FN/FAL everyday? Its highly doubtful. Continue Reading….

Ammunition Shortage Janaury 2013

In all honesty I did not expect the ammunition shortage to go this long. There is talk that its going to get worse.

When Obama and Dianne Feinstein opened their mouths about gun control in the wake of Sandy Hook, gun owners went into a panic buying frenzy.

Shelves have been empty for close to a month. Sandy Hook shooting happened on Friday December 14, 2012. The following week guns and ammunition were flying off the shelves.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

Here we are a month later, December 14, 2012 – January 14, 2013, the situation has gone from bad to worse.

Pistol ammunition – gone
Rifle ammunition – gone
22 long rifle – gone
Shotgun – hit and miss

Bolt action and lever action ammunition such as 270 Winchester, 30-30 Winchester, 30-06 Springfield and 45-70 is still on the shelves. The ammunition that is still available has gone up in price over the past month. Continue Reading….
