Ammo.....

Many have posted about a proposed online ammo ban. The most humorous came from my friend over at Murphys Law. The M-60 picture was icing on the cake.

I really don't have a dog in this fight yet, but I will voice my opinion on it to the Congresscritters.

I ordered some ammo online right before I posted this (clicky to embiggie). 














That's 4000 rounds of 9, 2000 rounds of 45 and 1000 rounds of 380. Should go well with this:































Some assembly is required however:






















As always, Americans will adapt and overcome. The thing that galls me is the fact that no one stocks stuff below like this locally and it is the online vendors that can afford to stock it as it is not really popular to have on the shelf, pay property tax on, etc.
















I don't shoot these things a lot, but I would like to shoot them if I want to (well except my only Glock in the corner)! Yes, I can reconfigure the press and make this stuff, but still. Going after online sales of ammo is yet another feel good, does nothing thing. The vendors have a copy of my drivers license, I have a FFL and my CCH permit as well as my instructor permit from my State DOJ.

 I am ashamed of the people supposedly representing us. Icing on the cake? The people at Montana Gold have engineered sturdy shipping boxes to fit in the flat rate flimsy USPS "It fits, it ships" boxes. Heh. I like that as they will hump 50+ pounds per box across the country for oh, 7 bucks.

  1. My wussy unionized USPS cow will not deliver full boxes of ammo to my mailbox. Instead, she leaves a slip that tells me that I can pick it up at the post office 11 miles away, reason being that it's "too heavy" for her. Every time I order ammo components she does this, then I have to call the post office and complain, and her supervisor delivers it the next day. He admits USPS union rules prohibit him from disciplining or reassigning her. UPS delivers every time, by contrast, and their driver brigs dog biscuits. Any wonder why one is bleeding red ink and the other is doing great?

    1. My contract rural carrier (mid fifties woman) had it worked out. She usually came at lunch time. I live close to work and come home for lunch. I don't know what she did to force USPS people to put the bullets in the back of her explorer. She would back up in the driveway so I could get them.

      She was sharp. She figured it out after stuffing the Blue Press mag, the NRA mag, the Midway fliers, BATFEIEIO letters in the box.

      She actually sent people to me for new shooter class!

      She left me a note last week saying it was her last run here. Now, I have a honking white USPS truck delivering the mail. Really??!?

    1. You know, I found that cool as hell. "Free shipping", they are gaming the system well. I can get jacketed bullets somewhat cheaper, but I love what they are doing. Plus the bullets are covered in awesome sauce! They work well.

  3. Wasn't familiar with them... I'll have to check 'em out for ammo... We usually order ammo online twice a year and have purchased 4,000 to 12,000 rounds in any one order... we still buy some ammo locally, along with gun powder and primers... but often we purchase our bullets and some other components online...

    1. Dann, they ship quick and I like the bullets. I visit local too to try to avoid the HAZMAT fees.

  4. Your closet shelf appears to be showing some adverse deflection there.
    You need a stronger shelf.

  5. The only time you have too much ammo is when your house is on fire.
