I got this back form them on ammo restrictions. Notice the calibers and the other items on the restricted list.
Make your own deductions, but if it smells like shit, then it usually is.

I heard on the radio (KTRH Houston) this morning that Academy Outdoors was going to restrict the purchase of ammo to one box per person on certain ammo.
Has anyone else heard this or seen anything on it?

Lot's of things have been happening in my neck of the woods. Posting will be very light for I don't know how long.
I started a new job yesterday an hour south of my locale for a big drill pipe manufacturer. Orders are heavy & production is running 24/7. I am overseeing the rail shipping dept and all of the logistics side is in a 12 hr days/ 6 days a week. Factor in the commute and I am a tired puppy when I get home.
On the upside, this oppotrunity will provide much more green to help with things.
Now for some more good news.
This past weekend I went to a borthday party for a fellow church member and close friend.
Many things were happening at this event that reninded me of times past (as represented by the top pic). Our preacher was there as were several of the deacons.
There was much talk about the coming storm. There was also MUCH talk about how to best counter the coming storm with the hazards of hail, lightening and high winds to be expected. Most of this I was tossing out to test the waters.
Folks from the church leadership on down to some of the elderly members was the same. They are tired of it and they are ready to repeat the path of Peter Muhlenburg, John Parker and Patrick Henry.
The time is drawing near for some sitting on the edge to make the choice.
Choose wisely because the paths will soon seperate.
But in the end they will end up at the same destination, with differetn results.

It would seem that they are still rolling forward with gun confiscation in a pretty dressed up kinda way.
Kinda like that $20 hooker on the corner next to the local crack dealer.
Here is the whore in her morning face.

Yesterday I got a couple concerned email asking if all was OK as my last post calling Mike Vanderbough a 2 faced communist was MIA.
Well it appears the stasi blogger police did a no knock on me and wiped out many recent post relating to that subject and similar.
I guess thats one of the risks when you click "I agrre to the terms" button.
But I will not be deterred.

SECTION IX – CONTROL CIVILIAN MOVEMENT/DISTURBANCE
3-60. The likelihood of civil disturbances during urban operations is high. Handled poorly, the reaction to a civil disturbance can quickly escalate out of control, with potential long-term negative effects for mission accomplishment.

I did speak to one harried clerk, briefly
They didn’t know when they’d be getting anything back in stock, from magazines to rifles to pistols. Manufacturers were running full-bore, but couldn’t come close to keeping up with market demand.It wasn’t just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that were sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands , M1 carbines, and Enfield .303s were gone, along with every last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagants—of which every gun store always seems to have 10-20—were gone. So was their ammo. Only a dust free space marked their passing. I’ve never seen anything like it.
Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years was gone. This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.
