    Hoosier armory in Noblesville: A lot of 44 magnum 22 short, 32 auto, Black Hills 45 ACP and two boxes of white box Winchester 5.56, $110/200 rounds. Get your 7.62 Tok here. NICS Crashed was the word I just heard in there. Small shop packed with people.

    Exactly why I have a couple of Makarov's.

    Just did a major ammo re-org due to having my electrical service upgraded from a small 100 amp fuse box to a BIG 200 amp breaker panel. Lost 2 shelves of ammo storage, but after some condensing and creative storage solutions (filled a "coffee table" that I had made from a 105 mm ammo crate) with small quantities of miscellaneous oddball ammo (30-40 Krag, 6.5x53R, 7.62 Nagant, etc.), I was able to get everything put back. Gave me a good chance to see what I had (at least in 2 closets) and I'm good on 7.62 Tok!

    Went to the local gun store yesterday with the BIL, while he made a purchase. The place was packed! Talking to the owner and he mentioned the last week has been insane, and mentioned their average 50 gun sales per day. Stock was really low on both guns and ammo.

    Visited the local range yesterday, safety officer said he's been dealing with all kinds of jokers. One guy accidentally discharged his AK as he was getting out of his truck, sent home immediately. Another yahoo was trying to shoot his AR with just the picatinny rail, no iron sights or optics...these new gun owners are going to hurt someone or themselves.

    I might just avoid the public ranges for a while...

    I'm sure the incidents are up (more traffic, I'm sure) but this stuff happens all the time with the public.
    The RSO is the only one trying to make sure the rules are read and followed. There's only the firearm community & range neighbors who can assist (hey, that's US).

    Eh, were they on target? It can be done.
    Perhaps this was their very first time behind the rifle. Safe handling and a good experience may be their only goals.

    Some are better than others, but you do need to keep your head on a swivel at all times. Even during a quiet weekday morning.
    I mean, most of the people there are handling firearms & half of them will be below average in skill & experience.


    It's also a great opportunity to strike up a conversation and see what they're interested in.
    Everyone was a new shooter once... maybe we can get them to stick around for later.

    Stay to the right of right handed shooters and to the left of the others.

    Thumbs up Most reloaders prepare better than that...

    Reloading doesn't make you immune from an ammo run unless you have a mountain of components in stock at home. Two or three companies account for 95% of powder and primers. Nothing stopping them from jacking powder up to $100 a can.

    These are true statements-BUT-Most people that reload DO stock up when buying, yes we can run out, but most handloaders "Stock" is pretty good.
    We usually buy primers (especially when on sale) in the 5K case, and powder in the 8 pound jug. Most have enough components to keep shooting for awhile...Bill.
