National Buy Ammo day was Nov 19th.

Funds being limited this year, I got a half case of Silver Bear 223 from Aim Surplus (already arrived, wow!).

What did you get?

Who makes up these silly "national days"?

I didn't buy jack. I reloaded a few weeks back. good enough for me.

I ordered 500 7.62X39 the other day (11-20), but I didn't know it was buy ammo day the day before. I was just low on 7.62X39. :)

Had I only known that I was supposed to go out and buy ammo... Ah well, I didn't have any money anyways. I wouldn't have been able to participate. Maybe next year. Just give me a few days heads up because I know I'll forget.

Wasn't it Kim DuToit who promoted National Ammo Day?

Whatever happened to him, anyway? I thought I spotted him at a Tea Party rally here in Texas a year or so ago, but not altogether sure about it.

Never heard of National Buy Ammo Day. Sounds like crap and a stupid idea to me.

Sounds like another way just to drive up the price of ammo to me .

Great High Road responses. :rolleyes:

On second thought, it's about what I'd expect from THR these days. This site is going downhill faster than BHO's approval ratings.

About 30 seconds of research would show that National Ammo Day is designed to impress upon both retailers and political animals just how many gun owners there are out there, and what an impact we can have on both the economy and the voting booth. An opportunity to display solidarity.

And just as clearly, a concept wasted and an opportunity missed.

I didn't buy any loaded ammo but collectively purchased 110 LBS of bullets that day (mostly lead, 44/357) from my fav vendors. :D

It's good to hear that some people knew about it. I got an email from thegunsource.com on November 22, telling me that November 19 was national ammo purchase day.

Had I been informed on time I would have participated.

National "Buy Ammo Day" has been around for several years. There are THR threads dating back to 2003 about it.
