Looks like it’s a Sonny & Cher kinda day, because (once again via Insty) I see the following:
President Joe Biden’s latest round of attacks on guns is helping to drive a historic sales surge that continues to leave store shelves bare of firearms and ammunition.
Industry officials said that June sales were the second-highest ever for the month, at about 1.3 million. Only June 2020 had a higher number for that month, at 2,177,586.
Anyone checked the availability of AR-15s recently? Orders still backed up out to infinity? Thought so.
And now that the 9mm/5.56mm ammo pipeline seems to be opening up, things are going ahead as planned.
Not as planned by Biden and the anti-gunners, of course, which is why they’re running around like headless chickens, trying to pass all sorts of stopgap anti-gun legislation.
Now if we can just get the increased flow of .45 ACP to lower the prices down from nosebleed levels, maybe I can get some 1911 practice going again. My Springfield thinks I must have left town or something…
Where is this “opening up” happening?
I just paid $252 for 600 rds of steel case .223.
That’s almost 50 cents a trigger pull.
That price needs to half, then half again.
My local death dealer has some AR-15s in stock, just a few. But it’s never been a huge part of their inventory. They do have quite a few AR style shotguns.
The interesting thing is that ARs rarely show up on the used rack, and when they do, they disappear quick. Except that Colt M16A1 clone, I assume because of the Prancing Pony Premium. That, and nobody wants to shoot iron sights any more.
I just joined the Garand Owner Assoc, just so I can have an M1 delivered to my door. Now I need an 18″ bayonet…although the thought of butt stroking an antifa pussy tickles me…can’t do that with a ‘modern sporting rifle’. We were taught that back in the day, my thought: “I do this and I’m going to break the ‘rifle’.”
My drill sgt agreed with me privately, but it was still on the lesson plan. All hail the lesson plan… And I say this as a former Army instructor, (Master Gunner Course) I updated my ‘course notes’ to include the M1a1 and was widely reviled for changing my ‘lesson plan’. I was standing on an M1A1 using M1 notes. The two are not the same…bastards.
I would dearly love to answer the door to the Biden Innoculation Checkers with said pike…
we have commie politicians around here and they keep making the false claim that 90% of people want government approval of all transfers of firearms. Clearly the numbers of NICS checks and empty shelves at gun shops show that the commies are wrong.
