Seriously. This is getting ridiculous.

Okay, I know I said I was not going to complain any more about anything, but like almost every promise I've ever made, I'm going to break it.
I have lately been trying to get ahold of some ammunition for the coming hard years for the arms-bearing citizens of this nation. I've been trying to track down ammunition since I got back to Colorado in September. No such luck. Apparently, Mr. President wants to make it SO incredibly difficult for me and every other responsible shooter in the country to do just that- shoot. He is trying to put through a bill that will require all ammunition manufacturers to put a serial number on EVERY SINGLE shell they manufacture. On top of that, he is trying to outsource all the ammunition production to other country. Now, why would he do that? Isn't he trying to boost the economy? Yes, but that doesn't count! Guns are dangerous, because guns kill people, right? Well, ignoring the fact that it isn't responsible people that kill other people using guns . . . he just hates people that have the ability and the balls to stand up for themselves, so he's going to **** us over by taxing the hell out of our ammunition. The idea of somebody being able to stand up to all his bull**** scares the hell out of him.
Back to my original premise- finding ammunition is getting to near impossible. All the local ammunition dealers are sold out within a few hours of getting new shipments in. All the online dealers- Bass Pro Shops, Sportsmans Warehouse, Cabela's- they're all sold out. Not just of popular ****, I mean everything. Of course, the one gun I do not have any ammunition for happens to be a military caliber, so guess what? Back orders are not weeks out, they're months to years out. I'm getting a little worried about the current situation, and if everything goes down the ****ter, I'm headed for the hills. All I need is a few more shells and I'll be set. Anybody have some 50 grain .223 shells they want to get rid of? I need around 500 or so. I would prefer Black Hills Remanufactured or Federal, but I'm not in a position to be picky . . .
