I didn't get to any of my locals last week. Snow and New Year.
I think people don't realize it's the same as 308.
It DOES make sense. They have buyers for all the calibers. They don't want to neglect part of their customer base and actually lose brand loyalty as a result of their actions. To use your example, Ford may know that 60,000 people was waiting on F-150s and they know that 10,000 are waiting on Escorts. They aren't going to neglect Escort production. They don't want to lose them to other brands.
What I think you are failing to understand is that ammo companies don't just have people looking for and waiting on only the most popular calibers. They are waiting on the less popular calibers as well. In terms of tying up production, it is ALL selling. Why cater to a few when you can cater to the many?
I understand what you mean. It just seems to me that using the resources to produce stuff that may not sell as quickly as the stuff that nobody can keep in stock is the opposite of catering to the many. Or at least catering to the majority.
In reality, I'm not affected by any of it anyway. So it's more just a curiosity to me.
I doubt any of us have control of that. I figure it will end when the media stops playing up the riots and such. I figure that will happen this year. We will see. Then the gun guys can stock up on critical calibers so we don't get hobbled by the next shortage.
You think guys on a gun board aren't going to discuss a scarcity & price increase re guns & ammo?
They were usually there, and it should be obvious to most people Why they were available.
We can easily buy 9mm, .380, 7.62x39 in the gun shops here.
Which is the Main Issue here: price, or availability of the more popular 'chamberings'? Or finding it in bulk online as we did over the last several years while preparing for a prolonged ammo panic?
People have every reason to be scared. There's a lot of ugliness coming down the pike and apparently no way to stop it.
The anti-gun cultists have every intention of going after the 2nd Amendment like the Japanese going after Nanking. Anybody who tells you different is a liar.
Yes ugliness indeed.
I look forward to another shortage ending and a return to whatever the new normal will be. We're about 11 months in and still a good but of variables in play so I'm not even forecasting until another six months rolls along.
I don't see shortages ending any time soon, only aggravated by assaults on the 2nd Amendment heretofore unheard of.
If you think shortages are going to end, just wait until the "assault weapon" and magazine CONFISCATIONS start.
There is literally NOTHING off the table now for the anti-gun cult, and they don't even have to hide it.
We are in evil times, the likes of which haven't been seen since "burning Kansas".
I expect a maximum push for the most extreme measures, carried out in the most over the top, unlawful and unconstitutional ways possible.
2021 version will be, ''buy what ? stack what?''
I predict a minor easing in supply several months from now, don't get too used to it cause it will disappear very quick. VERY little let up in prices, if any. As political shenanigans start, there will be no panik buying.... of what is not there.
EXACTLY like, there cannot be panik shopping of XYZ Mart at 3/am, they are closed.
''There's no more pot pies (KFC) we are OUT'' came the 17 yr old's voice through the order speaker.
BTDT (been there did that)
Give me an idea how those confiscations will happen? Estimated 9.5million "assault weapons" in the US..lets say 5 mags each..47million or so magazines. Coupled with the fact the Feds don't know who has what(gun registration illegal in the US)..just how does a mass, country wide confiscation happen? The manpower, the $, the data...?? Just curious..
Not trying to argue any 'point', so.....I see this all the time, 'confiscation'..just don't see that the $, the manpower, the information, the political will(it would have to be via congress) is there....
I'll bet there WILL be some sort of 'assault weapons' ban(NOT sayimg that's any kind of good thing...OK?)..probably like the last one and probably grand fathered...IMHO...
In Before the Lock...
