You guys still shooting?
Having trouble finding ammo these days?

I reload but dont want to dig into my primer stash just yet and I like to shoot rimfire everytime I go shooting. That stuff seems nonexistant or someone trying to rape you for it.

I get annoyed at people in this hobby/sport about the hording. So they are presenting a AWB so wtf are you buying up everything unrelated?

I saw a guy at wallyworld buy 15 cases of .270. He told the cashier better stock up before they take em. You seriously think they will come after your hunting rifle guy?

Anytime something like this happens(seems every 4 years) I just pick one of my other hobbies to focus on.

I am missing the USPSA shoots though.

Ya, I shoot my load maybe twice a day depending on my mood.

I'm not shooting anything except .22LR these days. Like you, I don't even want to dig into my reloading stash right now. It sucks because I like shooting but the current climate really doesn't allow for most people to enjoy this hobby.

I haven't gone since last year, before the sandy hook shooting. I had also bought 1500 rounds just beforehand too. In times like this I consider my stash a "baseline" and won't dip below that if I can help it.

:cry::cry::cry:No shooting for me, just trying to hold on to what I have. I do stop by Academy and Wally World now and then but I have yet to find any ammo.

I dont know why people are buying up all the ammo, I have not seen one article about an ammo ban.

been shooting some skeet, but apprehensive to shoot anything else until ammo starts flowing in more regularily.

Went boar hunting this past weekend. Ended up shooting a bunch of my buddy's ammo since I didnt use my own guns... 30/6, .308, .7.62x51. Ended up paying him for it though.

We did shoot some targets in the middle of the day. But only shot about 60 rds of .223, ~40 rounds of .45 , ~60 rounds of 9mm. Shot mainly cheapos.

Not too worried. I have a good stash boarder line hoarding.

Shooting because that's why I bought it.. and ammo prices will normalize later this year.

SamDoe1 02-08-2013 01:05 PM

Nope, hoarding ammo right now due to insane prices and no availability. Only thing I would shoot now is .22LR and my .22 rifle is in pieces right now getting some trigger work and a paint job.

al0513 02-08-2013 01:53 PM

Pics of paint job. Multicam?

SamDoe1 02-08-2013 04:32 PM

Snow camo. Pics after this weekend. It'll be warm enough to paint outside for two days so I'm taking advantage of it.

david05111 02-08-2013 04:35 PM

Nope, nothing. The only ones I would consider shooting at the moment would be .22 and .45. My 5.56 is not being used at all, nor is my 9mm or 7.62.

Sentaruu 02-08-2013 04:47 PM

i havent shot a thing. im almost afraid to lol

carcus 02-08-2013 07:14 PM

I went to the range twice last week. Have been sharing ammo between friends. I am done for a while now except for shooting some bricks of 22 and 9mm. Regardless, I still need to have fun.

Reedo302 02-08-2013 10:15 PM

I guarantee 90%+ of the people who are buying this ammo in bulk are stockpiling it with zero intention to shoot it.

JonJon 02-08-2013 10:25 PM

I have enough ammo to last a long time. Just no time to shoot

Not shooting my ammo. I sold a bunch. Basically all the ammo I have now is free since I sold half at the inflated price. I will buy ammo again when it is cheap. The same thing happened before Obama got elected.

Reedo302 02-08-2013 11:53 PM

I can't shoot much. I want to, but I have to save my ammo for training this summer. If I can score more for a decent price, that will change. Right now I'm limited to my mothly allotments from my agency.

al0513 02-09-2013 03:09 AM

Have y'all heard the rumors of Obamas impeachment?
