    Sounds like maybe they’ll keep shipping as they can? Maybe just keeping the mobs out of the store?

    Yeah...they still taking orders, just don’t want a bunch of booger pickers fondling all their in stock stuff...and their online demand is probably so high keeping things in a shelf that could be in a shipping container seems like easier money.

    They are still around the same price. $13.99 for 50 of fiocchi though it’s either those or hollow points which are higher in price.

    Being a forward thinking man, Santa brought my wife 500rds of .25ACP & 2 spare mags to go with her little Beretta 21A.

    I did my part. Ran around in the yard hollering and shooting precious 9mm into the air, then buried an AR in the septic tank.

    On an unrelated note, how do you get poop out of an AR bolt carrier?

    I don't have a purse. Will a fanny pack stuffed with cracker packets stolen from restaurants, MRE jalapeño cheese, fluorescent condoms, tactical toothpicks, and a pint of rum do?

    Well I tried unraveling the little cigarette thing to make it longer but it was too crusty to separate the strands.

    Trade the tactical tooth picks for a set of these. After all it is the Chinese flu.

    It wasn't that long ago when .22LR was being hoarded. I recall YT videos of guys showing garages stacked to the ceiling with boxes of .22LR and stores were empty of .22LR. When there were rumors of .22LR coming in at WalMart people would line up at the door, and there were stories of store employees hiding .22LR for themselves and friends. I always wondered what happened to all that .22LR after the panic subsided.

    I thought we were panicking because Waffle House is going into Defcon Black and closing stores.

    Yeah, that's why I used black. IIRC large numbers of closures is the black designation. But all the ones I pass in SC are still open so maybe we are in dark grey.
