On November 19 please go out and buy 100 rounds of ammo. It's not an "official" day but I put "National" in the thread's title to make folks aware we need to do this all over the U.S.A.
I know it's tough right now, economically speaking, but this is the day we let all the anti-gunners in D.C. know that law abiding citizens DO buy ammo to go with all those legal firearms we own or just recently bought.

Here is the official site:

Normally I like to support this day but I'm starting to have second thoughts. Raw material costs have declined much more than ammo prices and quite frankly I think the ammo manufacturers are taking us for a ride.

November 14, 2008, 07:09 PM
I'm not buying factory ammo, but I'll buy 100 primers(maybe 1000) and another jug of powder. Does that count?

November 14, 2008, 08:02 PM
I am starting to buy reloading supplies, and buy more equpi later. hope this counts.

I guess it counts, bullseye308. Couldn't hurt!

The ammo and firearms makers are in for a rough ride with this new rabidly anti-gun administration.
We can help them with our dollars.
Personally, I'd rather give my money to them as opposed to having my money taken by the fascist regime coming into office now.

November 14, 2008, 08:26 PM
There doesn't seem to be much ammo left to buy, everyone in Houston seems to be out of .223. Glad I had plenty in storage.

November 14, 2008, 10:58 PM
I went to a couple local shops here in Phoenix, there is little to buy. After speaking to employes they told me they sell out as soon as more shows up. It is rather silly but at least it is more money pumped into the economy.

November 14, 2008, 11:02 PM
ill buy 1000 primers an a few lbs of powder cause i need too anyhow, and have 373 rds of 45 colt loaded for the price of 100 22 mag rds

November 14, 2008, 11:39 PM
Yes!...reloading supplies! I need to feed an M 1, a K-31, a .303 Enfield and a couple of pistols. I should make a list tonight. Primers...powder...bullets...and brass for the Swiss Miss! :D


November 15, 2008, 01:35 AM
wouldn't this just drive up ammo prices further? and faster? and how does ammo sales go towards defending arms manufacturers?

I'm barely riding on ramen money right now, but I'll be stopping by my hole-in-the-wall shop a couple days later to help that guy out.

As for giving the arms manufacturers out money, it absolutely helps. It's not only the NRA lobbying, the manufacturers are looking to keep themselves in business too.

November 15, 2008, 10:21 AM
I'm not sure there's going to by any left by then. I placed my order yesterday.

It's 11/17/08. Do you know where your gonna buy some ammo on 11/19/08?

Enough ammo gets bought up nationwide and, who knows(?) it may make the evening propaganda, uhh...I mean news.

Or maybe it won't and we'll have spare ammo above and beyond what we already have. When is that ever a bad thing? :D

November 17, 2008, 02:34 AM
It already makes the news here. Stan at Rajo's already admitted his suppliers are running out and he cant keep ammo or handguns in stock, no matter how many he buys. He said less hunting rifles are being sold. People are holding on to the long guns that they have and are buying handguns. Sales to women and noobs are rising.

Powder, primers, and a couple lbs of powder seem in order for me also~! ;)

Well, I couldn't hold out 'til the 19th. I bought some ammo yesterday. Maybe I'll shoot some ammo on the 19th instead. :D

November 17, 2008, 04:14 AM
not much of a fan of store bought ammo around here:barf: but i will clean out two stores of all the rifle primers they have:D..and a few boxes of HM2 if they have it:banghead:

ok, a bit early. Got another 1K of 223. Wish it were 10K.

November 17, 2008, 02:30 PM
Since I reload for everything that is a centerfire that I own (except my 16 gauge) I'll go get a few hundred .22 rounds just to support the cause.

November 17, 2008, 02:53 PM
Pfft. If there's any left. :rolleyes:

J/K my .22s and 9mms are hungry. :)

November 17, 2008, 04:16 PM
I was off today so I thought I would get a jump on the 19th. Bought a bulk pack of Winchester .22's and some Federal 12 gauge slugs. I wanted to stock up at the local gun show yesterday, but none of the big ammo vendors were there. Hope this isn't a sign of ammo shortages to come.

November 19, 2008, 09:05 AM
Flags are flying all over the country today in celebration of National Ammo Day!!!!:D I have planned a nice dinner tonight at the local Mexican restaurant for me and my family. After that I thought that I would fill up another .50 cal. ammo can and gently place it atop the pile here at my mountain top retreat in central Arkansas. I will then start a nice cozy fire in the fireplace and read my last issue of guns and ammo and then get online with my friends at The High Road and discuss the days finds.

Hope you all find the ammo deals that you are searching for. Let me know what you did today to celebrate National Ammo Day.:):

November 19, 2008, 09:21 AM
I'll do my part.

November 19, 2008, 01:01 PM
Thanks for the reminder, I had forgotten.

I'll be sure to do my part.

November 19, 2008, 01:09 PM
Bought some today!

November 19, 2008, 03:19 PM
Well folks, today is the day!

It's National Ammo Day!

Go to your local retail outlet and try to empty their shelves of ammo if they are not already empty. :D

November 19, 2008, 03:26 PM
Did my part and bought a box of .40 and a box of .38+P.

Man prices have went up, $39.49 for two boxes of ammo:what:.

I have been wanting to get into reloading and wish I had done it a year ago now. Everything is going up so much and Christmas around the corner, I will have to wait until the new year to get started.

November 19, 2008, 03:32 PM
I'd love to buy some but I'm a poor college student who just bought 500 rounds on Nov. 5th.

November 19, 2008, 03:32 PM
Don't really need any more, but to enter into the spirit of things, I bought a box of .243 100 grain Remington CoreLokt today. :)

November 19, 2008, 03:35 PM
Ordered 500 rnds of Wolf 45 Today!

November 19, 2008, 04:56 PM
Bought a case of 223 and a few boxes of 35 Rem.:)

November 19, 2008, 05:24 PM
Bought 200 rounds of .38 Special ammo, 3lbs of powder, & 2000 primers to add to my secret cache in the bunker!!

November 19, 2008, 05:52 PM
I'll load 100 rounds of something tonight. Hopefully that counts.

November 19, 2008, 06:34 PM
I've got an order in at AIM. Waiting is the hardest part.


November 19, 2008, 07:06 PM
Five lbs. of assorted powders, some assorted bullets off the discount table -- six boxes, a case of primers (large rifle).

I have brass.

And this damned revolver followed me out the door. (An old Iver Johnson break-top, five shot 32 S&W like my aunt owned.)

November 19, 2008, 07:07 PM
Picked up a 525 round bulk pack of Remingtion Golden Bullets :)

November 19, 2008, 07:08 PM
Case of surplus 5.45x39mm along with Polish Tantal rifle.

November 19, 2008, 07:08 PM
I bought some Black Hills .45 colt. Hopefully it's as awesome as everyone says. The brass looks nice at least, and I'm digging the vintage style box.

November 19, 2008, 07:14 PM
Loaded 150 .357's.

November 19, 2008, 07:15 PM
300 win mag and some .40 from - sloooow servers!

November 19, 2008, 07:55 PM
Did a deal swapping 1,500 rounds of 7.62X39 for 1,500 rounds of 5.56 (brass).

BBT delivered 2 spam cans for 7.62X39 as well.

November 19, 2008, 09:31 PM
I bought several thousand rounds last week.

Today I bought two rounds of .41 Swiss Rimfire. It came with a nice 1871 Vetterli, too!

November 19, 2008, 09:39 PM

November 19, 2008, 09:42 PM
1,000 large rifle primers, 1,200 magnum rifle primers, .277 cal projectiles & .308 cal projectiles, bookoo brass and powder. I did my part.

November 19, 2008, 09:52 PM
One box of Winchester 3in magnum 'OO' in Wallymart today. Last box in the store. They didn't know when they would get more ammo in :eek:

November 19, 2008, 11:13 PM
My local Wal-mart was REALLY well stocked.

I bought a couple bricks of ammo. Two guys in front of me each bought 100 rounds of .223 and 500 rounds of 9mm. I didn't feel like being a weirdo and asking if they were participating in National Ammo Day though...

November 20, 2008, 12:29 AM
635 rounds of various, mostly rimfire. Walmart ammo cabinet was full, but they were out of buckshot.

November 20, 2008, 12:56 AM
Went to Wally World for .22 bulk and .223 bulk.

Only scored two bricks of Federal .22 rimfire, someone had alrready cleaned out all the .223 :(

While I was there one in front of me buying ammon and one behind me to buy ammo. Behind me was looking for .223 too...

So... I'll have to do a belated buy tomorrow for the .223

November 20, 2008, 05:02 AM
I bought some ( ;) ) 7.62x54r. The price is cheap,stack it deep.

November 20, 2008, 11:47 AM
I went out with a simple list:
- 9mm, 147 grain Speer Gold Dot
- 9mm, 147 grain Federal HST
- 9mm, 147 grain Winchester Ranger T-Series
- 12 Gauge #1 Buckshot

Neither of my "local" shops had any of the above. Zip. Nada. One, however, had an unopened shipment of Winchester primers. I convinced the owner to open the boxes and sell me 2,000 primers, so the outing wasn't a total bust.

While disappointed I couldn't "deliver" for Buy Ammo Day, I did order 32 pounds of powder on Monday and have an order for 20 M1 Carbine magazines in "Processing" at the CMP.

November 20, 2008, 05:04 PM
Didn't have alot to spend so I bought a brick of Rem thunderbolt 22s at Dicks.
I already have several thousand rounds of other calibers in reserve.

November 20, 2008, 11:44 PM
I ordered 1,000 rounds of Barnaul 7.62x39 from Widener's in celebration. :D

November 21, 2008, 12:58 AM
Did my part. 100 rounds of Speer Gold Dot 147 gr 9mm. Not cheap, but it's 100 rounds I feel I can count on in any of my 9mms.
