Gun control is hitting what you're aiming at! This is the target I used to sight in my Win M70 .270 when I put the Leupold VX III on her.

Gun control means using both hands, NOT putting my name and weapons on a national/international registry or getting an ammunition voucher to control how much I can purchase. I'm beginning to feel like maybe I should move to Texas sometime in the future.... No income tax, less stringent gun control, less crime, but also less public land to hunt on... decisions decisions ;)

My gun control .... Buy guns, that way I can control them and the government doesn't need to worry about them!

I am not sure this is where I should vent this but....

I am sure that most of you have realized a supposed shortage of ammunition for most calibers. At least the more common ones. We all blame the government for this shortage, but in fact we are the ones causing it, in more than one way. First, we have allowed the people to be voted in that want to remove our guns by thinking it will never happen. Second, we heard that there was an ammunition shortage so we all ran out and purchased large caches of ammunition. Now we see the empty shelves and say, "ammunition shortage is real". Now when we do see a caliber of ammunition that we have a gun for we buy it, not just one box, but as many as the store will allow us. I have seen people online selling ammunition at grossly inflated prices because they have accumulated huge caches of it. STOP, don't buy it. People's greed and taking advantage of a bad situation.

I do not have a large cache of ammunition, no more now than I have ever had at any one time. I do like to go out and shoot, but that has been curtailed a bit because I can not replace what I would normally use. Even reloading supplies are hard to find. :(

I have been called a gun nut and a bow nut, but when people I know have a problem with their gun or bow, who do they ask first? The nut. :D

Since this shortage has began, the price paid for used reloading dies in the common calibers has incresed on ebay.

I was quite surprised at the lack of reloading supplies and ammunition when a fellow archer informed me.
He couldn't find primers or bullets for his new .45 auto. I gave a list of where I usually found supplies and he came up empty! Having a supply of items needed I sold him some.

At one time I was shooting some 7,000 rounds of .44 magnums alone in one year. I then competed. I went through almost the same with .45 auto and again I was competing. Of competing I used both jacketed and cast bullets. Jacketed bullets were the call for Silhouette shooting, Combat and hunting. Cast I used for practice and hunting. I probably have that many jacketed and cast bullets on-hand and probably 25 pounds of powder.


Rifles I used for competing and coyotes and some testing and I have a good supply to keep them shooting for a good while.

My wife probably goes through more .41 mag ammo than most men shoot in 3 years!

Keep your booger hook off the trigger until you are ready to fire ... see this way too often with the bone-head grabbers in their pictures.

I understand there a few Governors telling Obama they will not abide by his decree or Federal Law.
Just heard Congress won't support his plan.

Looks like a few states have opened theirselves up for a lawsuit. Directive that they want, a safety measure in some instances, those who own firearms are not fully liable to pay for clerical work as a whole. In other words, if the "people" want tighter gun control they should also pay for such gun control measures.

What really is standing in Obama's way is screwing with a $30 billion industry. Rip guns and a whole bunch of tax dollars is lost and some will a lot of jobs, both firearms and hunting.

With the Defense Budget cuts that have been made, OSHKOSH TRUCK, a major company in the area that I live, announced that they will be laying off about 900 employees by this July. Of this, 200 would be office and 700 plant people. They reported that the "defense" plant will be closing. Oshkosh also makes fire trucks and other heavy vehicles and employs about 3,000 people. That means that one third of their work force will be cut.

If you think that is bad, think about the other companies in this area and other places around America that support the business. Everything from nut & bolts to sheet metal and welding supplies, tires, tools etc.

Colt pulled it's AR15 manufacturing from Connecticut and moved it to Texas and most likely the rest of the business will follow in the future. Magpul says it is moving it's manufacturing from Colorado, they make large capacity magazines. Barretta is moving it's facilities out of Maryland because of gun laws in that state.

They don't care ... disarm the citizens, beat them down until they need to rely on the government for everything. That's what this administration is all about.

You're right, the arms industry is huge, and mostly smaller companies make up the whole. Some major players have been pulling together, making a combined front against the democrats. Even Remington is debating moving from New York to someplace more arms friendly, and they've been there forever! In short, they don't realize the strength of the dollar and the amount of financial pull the arms industry has, but they will. Not only will these companies move to states that are gun friendly, they'll stop sales to armed forces and police in unfriendly states...

We need to have a "Million GUN March" on Washington, provided it's legal to carry an exposed sidearm, or concealed carry in D.C. In Kansas here, we have concealed carry, but few people know it's entirely legal to carry an exposed weapon on their person. It can be in a holster, but can't be even partly covered by anything else. Baically has to be in a hip holster old west style, or something like that.
Now, the one thing that gets me about all this is the Dem's. attempt to fool everyone. It's stated that a well regulated militia is neccessary to protect this country from foreign, AS WELL AS DOMESTIC threats. Sounds to me like they are trying to remove guns, because they know THEY are the domestic threat.
