Pre-election Panic Buying, kind of.

I was at my local Academy Sporting Goods yesterday and was not surprised to see that many of the most popular calibers and grain weights were sold out. That includes the Bullets for us re-loaders. The line of folks at the gun counter looked more like "Black Friday."

Gander Mountain is having an "Election Gun Sale" and their location near me was also very crowded.

Here we go again, and with good reason, I fear.

Monday will be a good excuse to restock the personal ammo locker. IF Hillary is POTUS elect come Wednesday then the buying or thoughts of buying are going to be deeply implanted and the supply will start to dry up.

I've been preparing for Hillary for a year now, so those late will have to pay.

I have all the guns I want at the moment, I've been investing in ammo this year and I need a bigger or a second ammo locker.

I shoot 22lr about 90% of the time, 9mm the rest. Sure is easier($$$$) to stockpile the 22. I just bought another 1500 rounds of 22lr CCI, mainly because it was a very good price. I just can't pull the trigger on another case of 9mm at this point...hope I don't regret the decision !

FBI has concluded pt2 of the Hillary email investigation and she dodged another bullet. Panic time is nearly upon us.

Ha, I bought a pistol just the other day, saved over 500 bucks off msrp, no crowds, no lines, never got out of my recliner. Already bought the weapons that would be affected by a woman president.

Also buying ammo but can't have to much of that on hand, I would have a lot if I would stop shooting it.

9mm is going to sell at a premium after Hillary gets elected. 20c a cartridge is a bargain.
