Logistics: Status of Gun Industry

"AMMO: Every caliber is now Allocated! We are looking at a nation wide shortage of all calibers over the next 9 months. All plants are producing as much ammo as possible w/ of 1 BILLION rounds produced weekly. Most is military followed by L.E. and civilians are third in line."

Reloading components are next. Some how it all seems like a planned event....

From the article, "Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years was gone. This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war."

Damn right it is.

Don't forget arming the "Civilian National Security Force" mentioned at www.lewrockwell.com Scroll to article titled: All Those Guns and Ammo by Marc Slavo.

That's not good. If the .Mil is first and LE is second on a BILLION ROUNDS per week......then you can be assured that our government is looking to kill us.

As the fable about the ant and grasshopper teaches, the time to obtain and store necessary resources is when they are plentiful and not in demand. We all need to keep that in mind when/if the supply lines are replenished.

Well, I've got enough to last longer than I would expect to live anyway.

Brownell's says it'll probably be March before they start getting Magpul magazines back in to fill the backorders from December.

There is no such thing as "A Billion Rounds a Week". The output of all the manufacturers in the U.S. might amount to a little more than 11 billion rounds a year at this time (this includes all ammunition calibers). All branches of .gov - Federal, State and Local sales amount to perhaps 30% of the total purchased and the rest is going to the civilian purchasers. Our manufacturing system is based on a Just In Time process and not enough powder, primers, bullets, cases exist to meet the increased demand.

So in the event of the unspeakable, ammunition manufacturers and ammunition storeage facilities will be targets for insurgents, theoretcally speaking of course.

I am sure the manufacturing executives and employees are aware of this. As are the feds.

Control over these facilities, will provide supply for those in control and will deny supplies for those not in control. But wait...that is already the current state of affairs isn't it?

The feds' have their own Molon Labe position taunt, don't they?

It doesnt matter about the ammo or who's ordering it, what matters is Americans have made up their mind to say NO and they already have enough ordanance to do what they need to do. What you are seeing is panic buying by the quisling scum and the traitors who would destroy us and they are nervous and worried.

They should be, they have pissed of the worlds largest armed group and they are vulnerable in so many ways.

People laughed when I started stocking up in 2002 when I retired from Mother Green.

Funny, they ain't laughing now.

If anyone is thinking of reloading their own primers, which I do not recommend, research the method Eley used to use. They would mix a metal oxide and dry organic acid (I'm not saying which metal or acid here, it's easy enough to find out), fill the cups, press in the anvils, then add one drop of distilled water to each causing the metal oxide and acid to react and form the priming compound. Once you've found the name of the metal and acid it is easy to find directions online for synthesizing the acid and making the oxide.
