I really thought Obama had taught us to be self sufficient. If you're not prepared I have no sympathy.

Not this a$$hole. I'm a spiteful son of a biatch with a long memory.

I remember drinking from a garden hose!

I’m more worried about the coming election when it comes to ammo.  It makes me evaluate what my “enough” ammo qty is haha. I have plenty for any plausible scenario I’d see coming. I still never attain that feeling of satisfaction though.

Unless you can’t hit the broad side of a barn while you are standing in it, or plan on firing a lot of warning shots; I fail to see the need for thousands of rounds of ammo for a SHTF scenario.

Don’t get me wrong, I have thousands of rounds, but they are for range trips. ;)

Might be a good form of currency or barter material...I shoot, but I like to rotate as I also try to keep a certain number of rounds in  stock...never really know when some kind of gun or ammo control will be implemented:  https://www.mom-at-arms.com/post/breaking-city-of-champaign-illinois-using-covid-19-outbreak-to-enact-gun-control

That mostly my motivation. I like to shoot and don’t like knowing I can’t go get more. Some think a few hundred is a stock pile. One good shooting match is a few hundred rounds haha.

It doesn't matter how well you shoot or how many thousands of rounds one has.

I have more than I'll ever shoot, in fact I still have some for sale.

We have lots of TP also, none for sale though.

The point is about availability & crazy escalating prices.

Some of us it did. For others it taught them to suck teet and whine while holding their hand out. We are seeing the results from both play out now.

Since I used to be in CA I have a few friends that keep me up to date.

Gun store are swamped with people buying their first gun , because of the virus . Lots and lots of liberal democrats suddenly felt the need to own a gun .

They have also purchased all the ammo they can find , there isn't any 22 rf to be found , but part of it is the threat of the no-lead ammo ban .

In case you haven't heard , they are trying to ban all lead ammo , not just hunting ammo , EVERY BIT OF LEAD AMMO . They started with the Condors for getting non lead hunting , now all of it .

Could be that a lot of it is being purchased on line , but you still have to go through an FFL , pay the Dros ( yes) background check on every ammo purchase . That can cost between $1 and $19 depending on if you have a gun registered in AFIS system or not . And some stores are charging up to $55 for receiving and holding it for 24 hours before you pick it up .

I feel sorry for them , that's why I started reloading years ago , and moved here to Free America . Hope it stays free .

Wow! And they’re definitely not cheap on 223/556. But I still figured it would sell out since they actually had it in stock.

Has Natchez started shipping to Tennessee?  I remember when they wouldn't, so they have never been on my list of places to check.

I want to think so. They sent me a catalog a while back. First one ever.

I don’t care if I ever buy any ammo again. But for those still buying, I checked Midsouth Shooters. They still had most of the popular calibers.

Still casting and powder coating boolits, bought more 9mm nickel brass Sat.{for my 9mm pit bull] and picked up a new powder [pistol power] Friday. Make my own no need to panic. Picked up 4500 22 lr at auction in Nov. at less than three cents ea. Got a couple of revolvers since the first of the year. Probably need to order some primers, and finish my bullet trap to recycle my lead. Dug through another storage box and found a few thousand more primers that had forgot about. Will check tomorrow at Hulmes Sporting Goods to see if their powder shipment came in.

Yes they ship to TN now. I've bought ammo and other things from them. 1 day shipping for me.

They did say that they are about 5 days behind on shipping due to order volume.  My order processed today and should ship Friday.

Gee, all ti took was a world wide pandemic to make them understand they're responsible for their own safety.  :rolleyes:

As for me, I could arm a small army if it came to it. I learned from the Obama years.  ;)

      So, I’m getting (re)acquainted with firearms a bit late in life; so I want to push forward with the greatest degree of efficiency I can. 
       
      One training aid that has caught my attention is the Mantis X. Yes, there are plenty of reviews and videos out there, but most seem to be from people selling the product or reviewers who may or may not have received the product free or hold a possible bias. 
       
      Upon review, I really only see one post on the subject here from, I think, 2018? I’m curious what real world experience some of you may have with this (or similar?) product over time?
      Have you seen tangible improvement from using the device?
      Does Mantis X noticeably improve your dry fire sessions?
      Has there been any value during professional training sessions in conjunction with Mantis X?
      What are the most beneficial things vs. what functions seem to be a waste of time with Mantis X?E2845304-D495-4A50-9BA6-1F9BF9F72B51.webp
      Can / should Mantis X be used while taking video of your target, since it doesn’t “know what you are aiming at”?
      I thank you for your time and experience!
      Also, if anyone knows a location in the Franklin / Nashville area that can do a demo, I’d be interested in checking this out.

      Heads up, there was Blazer  and Remington 9mm ammo at the Clarksville Rural King today.
      $10 something for 50 rounds of Blazer and $11 something for the Remington.
      Not a lot and will not be there long.

      What is brass going for these days?  I have a 5 gl jug full of 5.56 and 1 full of 7.62.  Thinking of selling it but was looking to see what a fair price is first.  Thanks guys

      Can someone direct me to a source where I can get low cost 38spl caliber ammo in the Nashville, Franklin, Columbia area?

      I’ve been talking about different aspects of reloading, presses, benches in other threads so I figured I’d start a new thread to show the product of those discussions. 
       
      This one is 2’ deep by 3.5’ wide. I’d have preferred 4’ but space is limited and I feel like this gives me plenty of working space without being too large. Top is 3/4” MDF doubled to 1.5” thickness. Coated with about 7 coats of poly. I haven’t decided on what I’m going to do with the bottom “flooring” yet. More than likely just painted plywood. I just have to make it to the store. 
       
      I built this mostly out of a recycled larger bench in the shop that stayed cluttered with junk. I had to buy a 4x4 for the legs and 2x10 for the shelves. 
       
      It seems to be plenty heavy and I can’t move it with the rock chucker. I may eventually add smaller shelves within the top for die storage but for now I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. 
       
      Once I get my Forster Co-Ax I’ll probably get an in-line mount so I can swap back and forth between them if needed.
