Here are a couple of my toys  ;)

Is that a AR15? What else you got in the box there?
You have a stock pile of ammo too?

I never stocked up on ammo and wishing I would have.
I probably have enough to get me through Spring target shooting and after that I hope the store shelfs are stocked back up around here.

I know some guys that bought a shit load of ammo last Fall and at the time I laughed at them because the shelf around here had still been full.

After guys came through for a big gun show in the area this winter the shelf suddenly became completely empty. :(

I have been checking all the stores on a regular bases as I run around the country and there's just nothing around for ammo other then some bird shot.

As soon as they (government) hinted at a background check for ammo (I think in only a couple of states) the nation seemed to go nuts getting it before that 'kicked in'.  No 22lr in my area, everything else is scarce unless it is snakeshot.  Hope it calms down soon, I'd like to go to the range with more than my last brick of 22.

Ya Aj, Its a AR-15.  Also a kel-tec 9mm and a Mac-11. 9mm.  You cant see it but my hunting rifle is there as well.   I dont have a ton of ammo, but enough to do some target shooting with maybe a little left over.  Last year this time it was no big deal.. Going to the cabin? ok, go to walmart and buy a couple hundred rounds to blast off.  Now, just like you said.  the racks are clear.  I did get a bunch of 223 and 9mm from dicks not to long ago.  But they had a 3 box limit.  i went everyday till they were sold out.  Also had my mom pick up some boxes, and my girlfriend as well.. Hahaha..  what a pain in the ass!

Hey guys, you can get ammo online but will pay a bit more because of shipping.  The link below searches online for you:

http://www.gunbot.net/ammo/357mag/

just click the type of ammo you need on top and it will give you a real time search with pricing.

good luck.

Forgot to mention you can get ammo at gunbroker.com...it is an auction site where you might get ammo cheaper than the website mentioned in previous post.

Itís a Harley sportster Iron 883. I have wanted a bike for a long time now finial pulled the trigger with this Harley. I took the class the local Harley shop gives for first time bikers (highly recommend) because I have never been on a bike before since then I have put about 400 miles on the bike over the last month and I love it.
What kind of bike did you have before?
