Sounds like a good plan.I plan after this shortage to get a better stockpile. More defensive ammo ( cheaper hollow points maybe ) and at least triple my current stock. Also reloading components That way should another shortage hit, i can at least shoot a little more for fun.
Any gun owner who isn’t at least budgeting even for a box or two of ammo a month (before this latest issue) is part of the problem. Ammo manufacturers will produce based on demand and it's hard to invest in more production if the demand isn't consistent. While I typically have always just purchased a case or two a month, when I was home and around town, I would almost always buy a box or two from various stores I frequented.The scary thing is, that advice was not just hypothetical, because ammo shortages had already happened in recent years. Despite this, many still had not prepared.
I stay far away from Gun Broker. The same place where ammo scalpers are pushing bags of loose steel case 9mm like it was dope. And a Glock 19 with half a magazine cost $1,500. No thanks. 🤣🤣🤣except primers are 300 dollars a thousand and powder 200 a pound and the only place you can get them is buy old stuff at gun broker
I look for obscure pieces there from time to time, but readily available guns and ammo? Fergitaboutit....I stay far away from Gun Broker. The same place where ammo scalpers are pushing bags of loose steel case 9mm like it was dope. And a Glock 19 with half a magazine cost $1,500. No thanks. 🤣🤣🤣
That saying can go to anyone of use. We all may have our ideas what might happen but will never know the full context of it all. There’s valid reasons why someone may want to go handgun only. Long guns are great for doing damage but if you live in a major population center and there’s still rule of law around you, those “suspicious” items can get you in more trouble than they’re worth. Think a elderly woman who’s ignorant to firearms and only know of them from TV, and she points you out. Or like in Katrina when people were shooting guns in the air to signal people for help, the police could take you with your rifle as a threat.A pistol is an excellent means to get you to your rifle.
I think most people have unrealistic views of what ranges they can effectively do battle with a handgun.
