So where does it go?
Are the Fed’s buying it up?
Surely those who have stockpiled have been at it for some years?
The feds appear to be buying all the ammo through straw purchasers.
Since the gun makers boycott of selling to gun control state police agencies is being overcome by the DHS providing them military weapons, it would probably be a good counter for the manufacturers to add a EULA to their guns and ammo.
“This gun and/or ammunition is licensed for individual sale and use only. Any commercial or government use is only allowed with the express, written permission of the manufacturer. Without such written permission for commercial or government use, ownership of the gun and/or ammunition returns to the manufacturer, with commercial or government paying for all shipping and handling costs.”
The Government works in mysterious ways , it’s wonders to perform.
I wanted to do some shooting this weekend, but not if I cannot replenish what I shoot up.
If you check gunbroker, you’ll see at least 20,000 rounds of 7.62 NATO for auction in 1K lots, plus a NJ police station selling a couple barrels of 7500 rounds of 308. They get more on auction then selling it to customers. That 7500 rounds looks tempting—a tidy little profit could be had, but need the means to haul it back home.
