    It is getting harder and harder to go 'plinking' and range time. Wal-Mart has low or no stock in my area. Academy Sports is pretty tight on their inventory. What is the best way to get (22,9mm & 38) ammunition? I am truly asking for a friend.
  • Ammunition Sales Skyrocket In Virginia

    Monday’s Lobby Day protest in Richmond, Virginia, should mark a high point in the gun rights debate. It is, at least to my recollection, the single largest gun-rights rally ever. If there was a larger one–not counting the American Revolution–I’d be delighted to know about it. My point, though, is that 22,000 people showed up to let the governor of Virginia and legislature know that they weren’t interested in gun control. However, those same lawmakers have made it clear that they don’t care what those 22,000 people had to say. Which is fine, I suppose, because gun owners in the...

  • Forget Gun Free Zones, Virginia Gun Controllers Want Ammunition Free Zones

    There is no such thing as a gun free zone. A person intent on criminal violence will not be deterred from bringing a gun to a location because of a “no guns” sign or an anti-gun statute. The only consequence of such measures is to ensure law-abiding citizens are disarmed and vulnerable. As demonstrated by Texas churchgoer Jack Wilson and the other armed congregants of West Freeway Church of Christ, allowing law-abiding citizens to carry for the defense of themselves and others can prevent harm. As counterproductive as gun free zones are, Virginia’s Michael Bloomberg-bought General Assembly wants to go...
  • California’s new ammo law hurts the wrong people — and doesn’t stop ‘bad guys’ with guns

    12/22/2019 12:05:11 PM PST · by PROCON · 65 replies ^ | Dec. 21, 2019 | HOLLY A. HEYSER
    When California started requiring people to pass background checks to buy ammunition on July 1, hunters hoped for the best and braced for the worst. What happened was far worse than we feared.The premise of the new law is that people who can’t have guns shouldn’t have ammo either. I don’t know anyone who disputes that. Bad guys shouldn’t have guns or ammo.~~SNIP~~Here’s where it fell apart: The state Department of Justice finalized regulations to implement the law just before it took effect. There was no time, and no effort, to raise awareness, no time for gun owners to verify...

    President Trump said Thursday that if House Democrats are going to impeachment him they should do it "now" and "fast" so he can have a "fair" trial in the Republican-controlled Senate. In a series of tweets, Trump also said he wanted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), and the Bidens to testify at a Senate trial. "The Do Nothing Democrats had a historically bad day yesterday in the House. They have no Impeachment case and are demeaning our Country. But nothing matters to them, they have gone crazy," Trump tweeted. "Therefore I say, if...

    A Wisconsin man was founding living in an undetected underground bunk in the Milwaukee woods for years with a dog and a stockpile of weapons and ammunition. Deputies discovered hermit Geoffrey Goff's odd, hidden abode on Wednesday after responding to a call of shots fired. After entering the 8-foot-by-8-foot bunker - which was also 20-feet-long - the deputies found an arsenal of weapons including two shotguns, a rifle, a handgun, three knives, ammo and a bow with arrows fashioned from “snowplow stakes,” Milwaukee County Sheriff Earnell Lucas said at a news conference Friday.

Top 5 - Most Gun-Friendly States: Arizona, Idaho, Alaska, Kansas, OklahomaBottom 5 - Least Gun-Friendly States: New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Hawaii, California Things were looking uncertain for gun owners in many states in 2018 thanks to a successful push in otherwise pro-­gun states to enact gun control legislation. Things seem to have stabilized in 2019. We are, at least for now, back to normal with states on the extreme ends of the spectrum growing...

    Following the fourth Democratic debate in Westerville, Ohio, BlazeTV's Eric Bolling questioned candidates Beto O'Rourke and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) about their support for a gun confiscation policy, and asked billionaire presidential candidate Tom Steyer why he thinks the economy isn't thriving under President Donald Trump. "Congressman, can you please clarify how you will get the ARs and AKs back," Bolling asked O'Rourke. "I expect our fellow Americans to follow the law. If you own and AR-15, if you own an AK-47, and it is no longer legal to own that, I expect you to turn it in," O'Rourke said....

    By now, we all know that Walmart has decided to stop selling certain types of ammunition because some people think it’s more scary than other kinds, which they will continue to sell… and many folks hail this as a victory of sorts for “Main Street America,” i.e. the small independent gun shops that will benefit from increased business as shooters buy ammo from them instead of Walmart. Meanwhile, a shooting range in Texas has started to sell ammo by the pound and trolled Walmart about it. Alpine Shooting Range decided to sell ammo from dispensers and charge by the pound....

    Yesterday i was on facebook and noticed people saying, oh, Walmart is not selling ammo anymore! Its a start! A start to what? People going to local stores and buying ammo somewhere else? These idiots think just because Walmart is not selling ammo that law abiding citizens and criminals will not get ammo elsewhere? I so so sick of this subject its unreal.

    The National Rifle Association slammed retail giant Walmart..."The strongest defense of freedom has always been our free market economy. It is shameful to see Walmart to succumb to the pressure of the anti-gun elites," the influential gun rights group wrote in a statement. "Lines at Walmart will soon be replaced by lines at other retailers who are more supportive of America's fundamental freedoms," the statement said.

    People who enjoy eating venison need to bone up on bullets, if they haven’t already done so. The bullet makes the connection. The projectile launched from a rifle or handgun is the critical element, the one thing that separates wild-meat eaters from people who buy it at the market. And there are five things one should understand about bullets. 1. Boattails are best. With but a few exceptions that apply to taking large, dangerous game primarily on the African continent, the spire-pointed boattail bullet is the best choice for Western hunters, especially those hunting open country. This projectile is superbly...

    California residents, facing a mandatory background check on ammunition sales starting in July, will need to bring an updated ID, passport or birth certificate with them to buy ammo. (Photo: Chris Eger/ just over a week to go before a looming ammunition control law takes effect, California officials are backing a new requirement that could leave many unable to buy ammo. Prop. 63, approved by voters in 2016 after an effort by now-Gov. Gavin Newsom, requires a background check be conducted on all sales of ammunition in the state. Set to go live on July 1, the California Department of...
