How about this link:

It surprises me that the poster did not anticipate this problem. It’s not the federal government that is buying everything up -- it’s the gun owners worried that Obama will issue an executive order, or some such, that will cut off their supply of guns and/or ammunition. It’s the same effect as with bottled water before a natural disaster.

Well Microsoft, here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten us into.

As anyone who has been reading my posts recently knows, there is a critical shortage of ammunition in the US right now, along with a complete lack of reloading components in most popular calibers. The cause of this is - according to industry representatives - that the Obama administration has directed Homeland Security to buy up everything available for the next five years. I've even heard that police departments have had to curtail practice shooting because they can't buy ammo. Obviously, no one official is going to mention it to the press, and the press isn't interested in broadcasting the facts, but we have been effectively disarmed by the US government, without anyone having to ban anything. How long this can last before it becomes public knowledge is anyone's guess, but I had to laugh yesterday.

I thought the above was exaggeration until I looked around.

Here are more details in the links below.

Can someone please do some math on 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition in the next four or five years.
It sounds like a "fire trucking" amount of ammo for Homeland Security to buy.

I am not worried.

Why, the 308 Remington looks good but a 308 Norma magnum looks even better.  :biggrin:

No guns where harmed in this production !

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mobileweb/2013/02/14/ronald-eugene-murray-murder-sandwich_n_2688370.html

Code: [Select]
Ronald Eugene Murray II, 26, was found guilty on Monday of voluntary manslaughter in the death of Mun Jang, who he punched and kicked on Oct. 1, 2011 so severely that Jang died two days later in a hospital, the Daily Breeze reported.
The attack occurred after Murray purchased a pastrami sandwich at a restaurant called Donut King. When he took his first bite, some of the meat fell out and Jang laughed at him, according to the Associated Press.
That angered Murray, who snapped, "Who you laughing at?" He became even more upset when the clerk behind the glass refused his request for another sandwich at half-price, according to Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Turk.
"The real focus of his anger were the people who would not give him a sandwich," Turk said, according to the San Jose Mercury News. "The only person he could take his rage out on was the victim."
Prosecutors said Murray sucker-punched Jang and hit him repeatedly, then threw the sandwich so hard at Jang's head that mayonnaise and lettuce stuck in his ear, NewJerseyNewsroom.com reported.
Murray testified that he acted in self-defense and claimed that after slipping on the pastrami, he fell to the floor and saw Jang standing over him with clenched fists, UPI.com reported.
Murray is facing a maximum of 11 years in prison and will be sentenced on March 4, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

 :biggrin:

There is only one solution to this terrible problem, arrest the pastrami sandwich and make sure it is never used in anger again. Now I guess you can tell when a pastrami sandwich is truly malicious when bits of it start falling out which in turn generates mirth in bystanders. Now if the gun grabbers had campaigned to arrest, detain and fully ban the pastrami sandwich this terrible incident would never have happened.

I wouldn't mind trying the Weatherby .460 Magnum.

Would have to use 3 sandbags though.  :t

Andy,
i think that's what they call an "elephant gun" - lol
if i'm not mistaken, elephants are off the menu

as for the pastrami....
the thought occured to me, the other day,
that the USDA and FDA allow the use of certain growth hormones on US livestock
maybe these hormones are a part of the reason the US has such high stats in mass murders
could also explain this guy with his pastrami - too much red meat in his diet

the FDA is totally based on "who has the most money", rather than "what is healthiest"

so - let us keep our guns and ammo, just shut down all the deli's   :P

 :lol:
yah - we had a tyrannosaurus running down the street, last week
a neighbor took him down with a 20mm....



afterwards, he showed us that you can get a tune out of the thing by playing "Dualing Banjos"   :lol:

i was off a little on the elephant gun thing - i was thinking of the .458 - close enough
i just know that i can't afford to buy the ammo   :biggrin:

here is a relatively new caliber you might like, the .700 Nitro Xpress T-Rex.....
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YWqkX8ZLDI

i have fired some .50 caliber black-powder rifles
the kick was pretty good - i think an old 30-30 has a little more

Is this thing for real ??   :dazzled:
I don't think you need a telescopic sight on that thing (unless you want to lose an eye, the eye cranium bit, and the brain behind the I).. it's more of an 'area' weapon that takes out anything in close proximity
'Sire, Sire!... the peasants are Revolting !!!'
'Yes, they are.. aren't they....'

yah - i would imagine the mass of the weapon helps a little with the recoil
the heavier the weapon, the less kick

can't imagine paying however much it costs to fire a single 20mm round
personally, i have better things to do with my money - lol

I looked up the ballistics for the .700 nitro, only comparable or less than .460 Weatherby.

I doubt he's holding a 20mm rifle.

If a Weatherby .460 puts bruises on your shoulder when you are using two bags of lead between the gun and your shoulder, a 20mm would, at the very least, break your shoulder in two.

I have some waterfront property in Arizona i would love to sell ya.  :t
