    Online ammo purchases are squarely in the cross-hairs of the anti-gun left. California already requires ammo to be only shipped to an FFL. Cities in California and around the country have mail-order ammunition completely. It won't be long before there's a national ban on mail-order ammo.

    Local gun stores are not known for great ammo deals in my area. I'll miss buying ammo at Walmart when it's over.

    With K-mart fading away can't go there either for ammo.

    Not only will Walmart sell the ammunition they currently have in stock, their stock will be replenished, monthly, through January 2020. Realize this. Plan for it. The window is closing if Walmart is your primary ammunition source.

    BigNasty, over time, played himself into the role of a quite sophisticated and intelligent troll. He proved himself to be an expert at twisting words, slightly off topic posts (when he was cornered) and skating the edges of acceptability. He quoted from leftist websites, often without crediting or citing the source. He went from a staunch Second Amendment supporter to advocating the banning of certain firearms he had no use for. He was PMed, by different moderators, several times about his conduct. His replies were combative.

    It would prove unwise to follow his example.
    I see that he was Banned. I guess ya gotta know when to sit down and shut up, and he did not.

    I bought a box of .45 ACP at Wa Mart last night. They entered my DL # into the check out register, as if that will do anything. That is a genuflection by a big business, because it looks like they are "doing something". I was even escorted to the cash register, from the sporting goods section.

    Our walmart closes out the sporting goods register at 8pm. They stop gun sales then. So ammo sales after 8 go to electronics and they escort you over to there,

    If the left has their way, reloading won't be an option. Federal law defines each and every component used in reloading, that means brass, primer, powder, bullet, as ammunition. For a time you might be able to buy them but the left will catch up.

    Atwoods farm and ranch stores in Oklahoma (and surrounding) used to do that. To buy ammo, they'd put all your info into their register. I only bought ammo once and when I saw that I never bought there again. I asked them about it and they insisted it was the law. It wasn't and isn't, of course.

    Now they're an FFL and have started selling guns. I'd never buy one from them, of course.

    Open Letter to Open Carry Idiots.

    SEPTEMBER 12, 2019 BY MIGUEL.GFZ

    First, let’s make something clear, we have two distinct groups: Open Carry Citizens (the ones that understand both Rights and Responsibilities) and Open Carry Idiots (the ones that go full tactical rifle, plate carrier and 20 magazines to show off at the local Dairy Queen) . This is addressed to the second lot.

    You have worn out your privilege of being the Stupid Kin of the Gun Culture.

    What do I mean the Stupid Kin? Do you know that uncle or cousin that always comes up in the family gossip? The one with a new tale of some dumb shit he did like getting caught trying to piss inside the gas tank of the Methodist Minister’s car? Or using a lighter to check a septic tank? Or picking a fight with the local college’s rugby team? The kin you have a special plan prepared for him if/when he acts up during Thanksgiving which includes both a First Responder kit and bail money? That is the Stupid Kin.

    Eventually, even though he is family, people will grow tired of his behavior and will cut him off from family gatherings because he will hurt somebody and worse. And that is where OCIs are standing right now with the rest of the Gun Community.

    We are tired of your childish crap.

    Maybe the message got lost from the time of the wars for Concealed Carry to the modern times. Whenever a State got Shall Issue as the law of the land and people started to carry, the first thing everybody told you was to be the best and most polite citizen you could be. You were (and still are) a walking/talking ambassador for Concealed Carry in particular and Gun Rights in general. Old heads will remember the Media attending Gun shows looking to interview a gun owner about Concealed carry and growing desperate when they could not find the human version of the caricature they pushed as Gun Owner but a well spoken, fact filled and courteous citizen explaining the advantages of CC and how the hysteria was unfounded. The Media hated it and eventually they stopped their silly propaganda. Concealed Carry was “normalized” because we all behave like honorable and respectful citizens of our country. We did not dress up or acted up like the enemy had portrayed us doing, we did the opposite and made them liars.

    OCI is the opposite. They want controversy. They want their mention in the Six O’clock news under a negative banner as if they wanted to show off in Social Media as victims of Fake News. An OCI seems to think: “A mass shooter with a rifle kills a bunch of people in a Walmart? Hell, **** being polite, I am gonna dress just like the caricature of a Gun Owner, go out in the street parading, sporting an attitude and see what happens. Maybe I can be famous too” which if you think about it, it is supposedly the same mentality that Mass Killers have: The seeking of fame and recognition.

    So, again, we are sick of your stupid stunts. So far the pushback was been from privately-owned (as in property rights) business politely asking not to open carry. But Stupid Cousin being stupid and doing something outstandingly moronic at one of these places, we are expecting the asking to be upgraded to prohibiting Open Carry and that is if we are lucky and then don’t decided to go all the way to include Concealed Carry in the ban.

    And if the responses I’ve been having about my position on this matter are a reflection of the Gun Community, be advised that 90% of our people are also fed up with the OCI antics. And I believe so much so they will be willing to trade you for a White Box of Wally World 9mm and a bag of Skittles. You have burned any good will we had left for you and you clearly never showed any care for us.

    How’s that for normalizing Open Carry?

    ‘Open Carry Citizens’ Versus ‘Open Carry Idiots’

    Tom Knighton
    September 15, 2019


    In any group, you’re going to have a handful of people who will seemingly go out of their way to push the boundaries and will usually end up screwing things up for everyone. These are the kind of people who take “casual Friday” beyond jeans or even shorts and show up in pajamas and bunny slippers.

    This leads to HR telling everyone that casual Friday has a dress code…if it’s not canceled outright. Those who forced the change are usually the first to complain about how awful and unfair it was, all while failing to acknowledge their role in things.

    In the gun community, we’ve got people like that too.

    I’m sick of the stupid.

    “Oh, I have a right to do this!”

    Sure, to a point. Those stores have property rights and you’re cruising here buster. You’re about half a heartbeat from screwing it up for everyone else. As someone who falls into the “everyone else” category, I take exception to that brand of stupidity.

    Also understand that because you have a right to do something, it doesn’t mean you have an obligation to do so. You may have a right to walk around town like you’re a heavily-armed extra from a war movie, but that shouldn’t be taken to mean that it’s something you should do for kicks on a slow Saturday afternoon.

    There are times when doing that may make sense. Times of intense civil unrest where a sidearm just isn’t enough for you to be comfortable, for example. At a time like that, you may need to carry an AR-15 to Walmart. At a time like that, people might even be more understanding of you doing so, especially if you’re not trying to look like the most tricked out airsofter at the milsim game while doing it.

    However, that’s not going to be possible because some people can’t differentiate between “can” and “should.”

    Look, I get the concept of trying to normalize open carry. I get it. While I’m not completely sure I agree with it, I don’t mind it.

    That’s not what this is about. This is about the dipsticks who take AR-15s into Starbucks just because Starbucks didn’t trip all over themselves to appease anti-gunners. Remember how that turned out? They asked us not to carry in there anymore.

    Walmart did the same, unsurprisingly.

    And now some jackwagons are seeming to do everything in their power to push Walmart to declare itself a gun-free zone. If I didn’t know better, I’d swear anti-gunners were behind it.

    So stop it, will you? The rest of us are sick of your crap.
