    i doubt supply will catch up with demand for several months....
    there will continue to be massive hoarding going forward.....
    people realized having guns won't do any good if you don't have ammo...
    this incident has been an eye opener.....

    There's going to be a lot of non-gun people that bought them in a panic and they'll start selling.

    that may happen by march....i'll be surprised....
    the prices being paid on gunbroker.......and every major ammo website showing "out of stock"........lead me to believe the demand will be high for a long time..

    I know some of that is for the general public. There are certain businesses I use for competition goods like parts and ammo that make exception for our community...

    ex. JP Rifles is not building ar's for the public but if you contact a certian person there he will build their competition ar for the same price as before the shit storm.

    Yes, 3 box limit on .40, .45, .223, and 22lr.

    That said, they had some 100 rd boxes and clerk said they are still receiving the 500ct Hornady ammo cans in 22lr occasionally, but they go quickly.

    This was in NW Houston, so don't know the stock elsewhere.

    One box of each caliber with a 3 box limit? I guess you still have to ask customer service for them?

    The hording will slow down when all of the AR-15, magazine, and registration BS doesn't make it through congress. But it will take awhile to get back to normal prices. Because even though the gun ban stuff won't pass people will still have it in the back of their minds that it could come back at any time, as long as we have a Democrat in the WH.

    i think the hoarding will continue well into the future...
    i will prolly buy 5k each of 5.56 and 9mm when/if the prices even approach levels seen prior to newtown....
    maybe get a k or 2 of 7.62

    That's my plan. I'd ideally like to buy a box or 2 per pay period. I'd like to have extra on hand.. and I just really hate having to look everywhere or sell my soul to pay for ammo at the range.

    Yep. The Academy in Edmond was out of 223 and 45 but had some 40. Bought a box of 30.06 and 40.

    Might stop back by tomorrow for another box of 40.

    I would ideally like to have:

    2K each of 9mm & 45auto. Have-500/700
    5K of 5.56/223 Have-1300
    10K of .22. Have-1700
    500 rounds of assorted 12 gauge. Have-250
    500 rounds of 380 Have- 100

    But I won't be buying at inflated prices.

    WASHINGTON — Is your workplace getting shot up by a crazed gunman?

    No problem — just grab a pair of scissors and fight back!

    That’s some of the helpful advice in a new instructional video from the Department of Homeland Security that was posted on the agency’s Web site just a month after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

    “If you are caught out in the open and cannot conceal yourself or take cover, you might consider trying to overpower the shooter with whatever means are available,” says the narrator in the video, which shows an office worker pulling scissors out of a desk drawer.

    In other words, just knuckle the **** up.

    Didn't really get a chance to look through what they had on the shelf like I wanted . . . they definitely had more on the shelves yesterday than they have had in the last couple of weeks.

    No real guarantee for anything, but it sounded like jp would make an effort to beat a ban. Neither were gouging. I went ahead and ordered a JP.

    I love the JP rifles so good choice!

    Oh I hadn't heard it's been a week. I haven't seen hardly anything there in forever and none that I need. I just hope they can keep some stock with limits. People can't even go out plinking and such cause they can't buy a single box.

    Yes. I had a sig 229 that was a .40. It converts to .357 with just a barrel swap. The .357 round is quite a bit hotter.

    I love my M77, though.

    what about converting a P226 357 sig to a P229 9mm?

    I got a guy selling a P226 with a 357 barrel for $500

    Don't know on that. It should be really easy info to access though.

    The .357 is a slick round though. It's got the same size brass as a .40 (so it's got a lot of powder) but it tapers down to the .357 bullet.
