I guess it was inevitable. In times of human challenge ( perceived or actual) guns and ammo fly off the shelf.   223, 762, and 22 prices have risen dramatically if you can even find it in the major cities or online retailers. Family fun at the range will be a lot more costly for awhile.

Survival tip-  If you run out of toilet paper a wet washcloth will work fine !!  New guideline at my house is ” 3 squares ”   Society has changed. Used to buy canned goods, powdered eggs and powdered milk. Now butt wiping has become the top priority. Go figure

 

Stay well

A country boy will survive. Junk mail makes good toilet paper at the Outhouse. A good time for MREs and Raman noodles. People are buying up the bread. They don’t know Tortillas are good as bread, or canned biscuits. I have plenty of deer and squirrels around my house. Fear not. This too shall pass.

My family hoarding genes have paid off. I am loaded with paper, soap AND EVERYTHING else I could think off. Including ammo. Great idea Gary about junk mail. Squirrels will disappear quick. Deer may have wasting disease in the north and west. We have gators though. In South Florida they have Central American Chicken. Time for me to dig my long desired tilapia pond. For the next apocalypse.

Junk mail can carry the virus if handled by an infected person…let it sit someplace with ventilation for at least 24hrs.

 

Mid FLA on the coast here. I’m a hurricane preppier~ have most of what we need. When I got a wife of this ten days ago, stocked up on lots of ground turkey (can’t digest beef) and filled up the freezer. Also stocked up on “OLE” burrito rappers..no carbs, stopped buying bread as often as we used to last year. These frees fine, and defrost in the frighted. 

 

I now went fro carrying my S&W model 60 everyday to my SIG 9mm when going into Wally’s or market. Living in a small community of abut 20k has it’s advantages…no long lines at markets.

Good luck all.

Keep smiling-cheers.

I live in the city, so not a lot of deer, but there is a 60-acre nature center right outside my back gate and the squirrels are abundant. I have quite a bit of subsonic .22 on hand, and my suppressor on my .22 is just what the dr. ordered for this situation. I just upgraded the scope, so my trigger finger is getting itchy! ar22-sup.JPGImage Enlarger

Ammo around here is flying off the shelves and more expensive. I was already well stocked before the pandemic and all of our ranges are closed. Last week a gun transfer took 3 days before we could get a call through for the NICS check. We had to do all the paperwork over. Here in southern ct cases are skyrocketing the same as New York. Seeing 85 reefer semis in NY and bodies being loaded with forklifts is chilling and unreal. I don’t scare easily and not trying to spread gloom and doom but this is sobering. One positive thing I do see is families taking walks together and going to parks which they normally don’t have the time for. Everyone be safe and the best of luck to you and your families.

Thankfully, I’m well stocked also, but I did order some 32 Win Special & 44 magnum since I’ll be reloading for that soon and brass will probably hard to come by. It will be delivered at the end of this week.

I’m stocked on ammo and reloading components to last another 3+ years of shooting regularly. 

44 brass shouldn’t be too hard to get.

And for bullets, you won’t find a cheaper 44 cal jacketed bullet than the Zero 240 gr JSPs.

All I use. You don’t need to buy 2k at a time^^ I know it’s says the 1k are sold out. You just add one of the “2k” counts to your cart and they’ll charge you for 1k.
