The only ones who win when we talk up shortages or rumors about legislation, is PMC and Winchester and Hornady... We just need to settle down and buy normally.

I'd like to be in a biz where a few forwarded emails gone viral will allow me to charge 40% more for my product for 5 or 10 years with no accompanying increase in production costs.

Now of course, if the stocking up of ammo is related to impending zombies, I totally get that...
My question is where the hell is all this ammoe that has been bought up over the last four years? It surely isn't being shot at the rate it's being purchased, and eventually these people have to hit the wall on how much they need, and quit buying it. At some point, I would expect the market to get flooded with "tired of waiting on the zombies" sales and plummet the ammoe prices back to normal.....

That being said, I have a shipment of 3k+ rounds of 9mm coming via ups right now.

Slug guns

A 12 ga. rifled barrel, scoped gun, shooting the sabot type slugs, is deadly and accurate out to 100yd.
My buddy has one set up like that and it will hammer deer size game out to 100yd, he has dropped a few in their tracks.

Even foster slugs out of a smooth bore can do that, the issue is taking the time and money to figure out exactly what brand/round your shotgun likes.

Rifled with brennekes and especially sabots can go much further, but again you have to spend time and money to find a consistent load.

I have ghost ring sights on my 590. I've been happy with them as an overall package for different types of loads. I could see a scope being helpful with slugs only though.

that was using my scoped A1 with target load and that one slug!
hand held w/o rest at 60-70fts
I really like this scope, the eye relief is great and super fast to find target.



PS.
the one in the center was with my scoped 45-70.

I hear ya, if I put a scope on mine it'd have to be variable power down to around 1x so it could double as a quick aquisition sight, but even then that's stretching it a bit.

You just need to start casting. You'll be mining lead, then.

GREAT scope, @ X1.5 you can see the barrel of your gun!
I have long liked low power scopes on guns for brush hunting. I have a couple, an old Redfield 1-4x from the 70s, and a more recent 1-5x mounted on a 30-06. I remember that it was initially disconcerting for me to look through the scope and see the slightly blurry barrel of the gun in the sight-picture, but I quickly got past it. Low powered scope means that you can keep both eyes open and immediately be on-target despite a very confusing/cluttered background and very short range. Try brush hunting with your scope set to 8 or 10x!

My gun Dealer and "friend" I think is the best salesman in the world. He called me and asked if I would check out his wifes jeep it had a check engine light on.

I ask if she had just got fuel and check the cap and to reset it by unhooking the battery if so and it is not running bad. He said she was going on a trip and would like me to check it anyway and would give me a free box of shells just to scan it.

Me: ok but you are not selling me a gun.

him: no I don't have anything you would want anyway.

I check it out and sure enough an evap code and she said she just filled up the night before.

I go in to chat and collect my free ammo and he knows I love old Ithaca's and just happened to have just bought a couple of them. I knew I was doomed at that point.

After a bit of haggle and some more free ammo I ended up with another model 37. I only have 9 shotguns anyway so why not? It is a very solid and beautifull gun.

Well, the new toy got some new toys today.


Has a nice eye relief to it.



But it took almost 100 rounds to get it sighted in so it was hitting in a 6in square at 200+ft. I'll try to get some video up later.
