    Ammo Prices up due to serial number scheme?

    How many of you believe that the ammo shortage and increasing cost of powder, primers, bullets are directly related to the Communists plot to serialize ammunition. They want to make it a FELONY to possess and or manufacture (RELOAD) ammuntion which does not bear the silly serial number.

    How many of you believe that it may be time to consider taking back our country. The United States Constitution provided a means of doing this with the Second Amendment. Of course this may lead to violence. But if we continue along the present path, the Communists will have made it a crime to have any possible way to do what the Founding Fathers designed into our Constitution, without being labeled as extreemist gun topting rebels. Like the ones they killed so well at WACO and everywhere else they begin to form any threat to the Communist's plot to take over the United States.

    O'Bama, or Clinton... either one spells the end of life as we know it... But then I'm not telling you things you hadn't expected. Too many "illegal laws" are passed into being by Communists who have infiltrated our own Government. These laws are blindly enforced by our Police, and Punished blindly by our Judges... Unless you have the testicles to speak out against the specific details of their illegal nature. Being informed of your rights is something I encourage each and every one of you to do. When you are confronted by some law that robs you of your rights to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness consider fighting back with a strong verbal arguement.

    In the days to come shall see what needs to be done. Perhaps a faction will form to take back our wonderful free country, and return it to a more simple meaninful way with laws that don't require an Attorney to understand. I long for the Country my Grandfather, and his father knew.

    END STUPIDITY... Hopefully without resorting to retro-active birth control.

    Ammo... Guns... Encourage our youth to know how to shoot, and to defend our great nation from those who would take it away from us. If the next generation grows up without rifles, shotguns, pistols, and revolvers they will be the end of the life we once knew. Then only the government, and criminals will have guns...

    Just had to refer back to this post.

    I would like to thank JMorris & JeepGeek. The measuring tip & mink oil helped out a lot. I have found the mink oil works great. The measuring methods JMorris provided have been as close as you can expect on the calibers I tried.

    Yep The same Mink Oil, you can buy it at WW. Contains some lanolin or at least used to. Works fine, lasts forever.

    "And 90% shot through a Glock, probably.:("

    What's wrong with collecting brass shot from a glock?
