    I have to admit that I enojoy reading your posts Babe. Very ... provacative. I was just reading about the Spring City "recomendation". They are also trying to arm and train the 20+ elementary school teachers/officials.

    As for the UN angle. If the UN (foreign troops) came onto US soil to confiscate guns there would be war. Send a UN platoon into a place like Cold Water MS to take peoples guns away and the next time you see those troops is when their bodies are dumped off at the morgue.
    The only thing about babe's posts, is they're always going to be guarenteed to be waaaaaay long and drawn out.

    On a side note.... Joe Biden now says the president will explore using executive orders to deal with gun control.

    Wow. That's a pretty extreme step.

    There is another extreme step for you. No I am not worried about it passing but that congressman should be removed from office.

    What do you guys think about ordering large quantities of ammo online?

    I've done it. It's a huge money saver and often the only way to get very specific types of ammo.

    Just to put things in perspective for those who never shoot, ammo is expensive. I don't go to the range to fire 10 rounds and go home. I'll usually fire a few hundred rounds, often around 100-200 rounds per gun I bring. For a 100pk of something like .40 it's close to $40, and that's for the value pack at walmart. It's often about $25 or so for a 50pk, but again, for range type ammo. For "personal defense" ammo, specifically the same exact ammo the local police use, it's around $20-$25 for 20 rounds. Buying in bulk makes it much easier and more affordable to practice with your firearms. The fun of owning firearms in my opinion is in firing them. I think it is very important to be extremely familiar with the firearms you own. The only way to do that is to use the firearm.

    I imagine bulk online ammo sales are going to be targeted by any executive order. To me that is a move intended to make the hobby/sport of shooting and firearms ownership more difficult, more expensive and less enjoyable/accessible. It has nothing to do with crime and everything to do with attacking "gun culture" itself.

    I'm opposed to term limits at any level of government.

    well a couple hundred rounds is pretty different than a couple thousand rounds. How many do you average using when you go shooting?

    Ok. So lets do nothing then. Just let it keep happening and say o well what do you do
    This is actually what we pretty much should do. I`m tired of people and this country freaking out cause a couple idiots went off the deep end.

    It`s always going to happen, no matter what.

    Right, but I buy a 4-6 month supply of TP at Costco because it saves me money. No one "needs" a 6 month supply of TP all at one time, but it makes sense economically. And, if a big storm hit and the stores were out of TP for a long time I'd be covered.

    I usually shoot 300-500 rounds when I go to the range. It usually costs me around $100 in ammo. If I bought ammo at the range it'd cost about 20% more. If I was smarter and I bought ammo online it's cost me maybe 10-15% less than what I pay at WalMart.

    This reminds me that I need to go get some more ammo. I am out of .22 shells entirely.

    Well TP. That's a basic need. So a trip to the range runs $200 in ammo?
