    I know I'll be making a protest-purchase and I'm certain I won't be alone. I expect purchases to rise nationally over the next few months.

    I just ordered 4000 rounds of different calibers because I expect the shortage to come again and the prices will skyrocket.

    We made some purchases this past week and picked up on Friday. The staff at the ammo store (and the gun store next door) has been doing booming, non-stop business since the election. The same is happening at another gun store we frequent. Guns and ammo are "flying" off the shelves.

    We have a gun show here next weekend in Pensacola FL. I have most everything that I need so I will probably not go because I think the crowd will be at maximum capacity!

    There's a big one not too far from here that we've never gone to and while we don't need anything I'd like to go and check it out. We'll see......

    Let us know what it was like. I would go for the same reasons as you, but I am teaching classes next weekend.

    Just to add to the discussion, I had a Combat Focus Shooting posted for Jan that was 50% full on Tuesday. It filled to 100% on Thursday...I think, and am grateful, that the firearms business will be good again the next four years. I had the best year of my 5 years teaching this year. I have to date doubled my best year which was last year, and still have 4 classes till years end.

    Obama Re-Election Fears Spark Huge Gun Sales

    Infowars.com
    November 3, 2012

    Fears that Barack Obama would use a lame duck second term to eviscerate gun rights are fueling record firearms sales once again, with gun store owners labeling Obama, “the best gun salesmen we’ve had.”

    Obama re-election prompts weapons, ammo sales surge

    November 7, 2012 | 11:16 am

    He said it during one of the presidential debates and now gun control advocates are pressing President Obama to act on his embrace of a new assault weapons ban targeting weapons like the popular AR-15 style of semi-automatic rifle.

    The Sandy Hook shooting has brought the 'gun control gremlins' out in force. Watched the Imposter-in-Chief at his gun control speech yesterday, but after looking over the 23 items he signed Executive Orders on, truthfully the only one that bothers me is the one about doctors not having to worry about asking their patients if they own any guns.
    To which everyone in their right minds answer should be "No, I don't own any guns. Why do you ask?" Or......... "And if I do? What damned business is it of yours?" Or the ever popular "I am going to find another doctor now!"
    Truthfully, I do not believe there is a consensus among many sitting Congressmen/Senators that think this is a good battle to undertake. But they are politicians, so you never know for sure with them. One thing that did kind of piss me off though was how he is now trying to co-opt the idea of more police officers/armed security officers in schools as his idea when the NRA, GOA, and the NAGR has been talking about this real need for years.
    One other item of interest here, kind of off topic: Those who are NRA members need to start putting some serious heat on the NRA Board to stop funding that piece of trash Harry Reid. This guy might be a good gun guy(which I seriously really doubt because he IS a politician first!), but he is honestly a bad American that has NEVER, EVER really represented his state of Nevada or the overall interests of the American people in any positive way. What makes me say that? Oh, let's start with Obamacare, and then all of his obfuscations over "Fast & Furious", how about since being the Majority Leader he has NEVER submitted a budget or allowed a vote on a budget? Or his love affair with the labor unions in Nevada?
    Folks, we have to get this guy GONE from the SENATE. He barely won his last election, but he did because of........wait for it.......wait for it.......his "A" rating from the NRA! Seriously? The NRA has this guy rated an "A"? So let's start bringing some serious heat to the NRA to clean up their act and drop this turd like a hot potato!

    Okay......... rant over!
