    @QMM - well its a sign of the times. In fact, 5.56 millimeter ammunition and webcams are sold out around here. I hope we can get back to normal as soon as possible.
    James this is all I could get at the time. I wanted a Glock 9 mm but all 9 mm and higher caliber guns are sold out, including .380s' now. Only .22s' remain. The entire process took 3 months and hours and hours of waiting in line. Everyone and their grandmother in Los Angeles wants to get a gun. Click image for larger version

        @QMM and @bs The smart thing to do would be to sell the existing 5.56 that I have - I might be able to get double what I paid for it.

        At this point I believe in what Warren Buffet has to say, which is basically that America has been through a great depression, two world wars, and the turmoil of the 1960s. We'll make it through this as well.

        What I think is a danger at this point is focusing too much on the turmoil and not enough on how to build wealth or better utilize existing opportunities. For example, interest rates are at historic lows, isn't now a good time to think about refinancing? Are there any business that have gone under which could be acquired and restarted? What commodities are people going to need in the future?

          How much do you have collected? Depending on the quantity, selling now is a great time. I'm down to about 1100 rounds of .223. I'm actually thinking of getting a progressive press reloader for mainly 9mm. If it goes well, I'd get new dies for different calibers. In the meantime my BIL has one and offered to let me use it.

            cypher1, I counted it a couple of months ago. I've got about 680 rounds of 5.56/.223. I also have a Ruger 556 which would make a lot of sense to sell right now as well. I bought it for $600 (ish), but I've been seeing low end AR's selling for $1,000. I don't use the 5.56/.223 platform for hunting much at all, so its basically been gathering dust in my safe.

              I was able to find 1,000 rounds of .223 the other day, so there is some still available, but it's currently a bit pricey and not easy to find.
              Firearms are not difficult to find here in the midwest, but the ammo for the popular stuff like .223 and 9mm is getting scarce. You can pick up a box or two most places, but bulk buys are tough to find.

                Yeah, good point. Kinda lazy to do so. I do have quite a bit of firearms. A lot of mine are considered vintage rifles and shotguns, but I do have modern handguns and revolvers. All collecting dust. lol I dont do ARs though.

                The nicest gun in my collection is one of these. Browning side by side, double trigger. Expensive when released, so very limited in production.

                      James California is rip off with everything (ie, gasoline, housing, 10% sales tax, etc). This Fiocchi 200 rounds was a shocker but I paid for it because I neede it. Click image for larger version

                        Well, at least Fiocchi isn't a bad brand.

                          you should get HP IMO if this is for self defense. FMJ for practice.

                          Edit: nevermind, just saw your first post pictures. lol

                            that price is about right. self defense rounds are a lot more expensive.

                              its weird to see how many people have guns in their houses something we just aren't use to here...not something we have grown up with...

                                Agreed for price range. I'm looking to spend .80 per round on 9mm hollow points as well. FMJs prices were .18 per round to now at least .22 if you can find any (of that caliber).
