i guess the gun will do more damage if you throw it at someone that tossing the bullets by hand.

in a couple years it may be easier to find ammo at the estate sale than the gun.

Yeah, for sure!

Nobody ever thought about that until it was mentioned.

Surprisingly some don't think of selling ammo or components until someone mentions it and then the $$$$$$$ start flashing in their eyes.

I have a friend down in Durango that is sitting on a pallet of 7.62x39 ammo waiting for the price of it to skyrocket. He didn't realize what he could make off of it until we walked through a gun show down in Farmington, NM last summer.

Cool story! What did he sell it for after finding out last year at a gun show?

He is still sitting on it and rubbing his hands together hoping to become rich.

He has around 20 cases of the stuff with 1,000 rounds per case. When he bought it he only paid around $1500 for it.

I don't see any issue with selling ammo or components for a substantial mark up. Don't blame the seller, blame the buyer for adding fuel to the fire. Do you get mad when a stock you own doubles in value, or your retirement savings worth becomes more than a nest egg?


If I sell ice to an Eskimo, I blame him, not me for being foolish.

The run is all political related, but this time the politics is really bad.
Yeah I know, just call me "Captain Obvious".

For my part, I scored some M855 a month ago at 81 cents per round (unthinkable a couple years ago), and im expecting some M193 tomorrow from midway at 61 cents per round. I just happen to have my email open at the time the product notification arrived. I didn't bat an eyelash and instantly bought it. But that's it, im done, especially when combined with existing stores. In terms of preparation, there are other areas to be spending money in.

The rednecks already bought their stuff years ago. Everyone else is just trying to catch up. I think my neck might have a slight red hue to it.

Has anyone ever had anything to do with the 06 ammo in the picture ?
I bought a bunch of it from an older gentleman several years ago that used to come into my store. He has since passed away. He was a gun and ammo freak. I paid 4 or 5 bucks a box for. I thought it was interesting stuff. Haven't shot any of it.

My dad Shot a lot of that stuff in the Military in the early 70's the brass is really good. Some of it is finally so thin it will split but we have also reloaded it a bunch of times.
