Simply supply and demand and nothing to do with which party is in office, though I will say that the gun biz always booms when we have a Democrat in the White House.

An old saying in my family comes to mind "this too shall pass", and it will.

It will take a while for the supply chain disruptions from Covid to normalize but they will. A very good sign Remington is up and running 24/7.

Have any of you priced construction material lately? Dimensional lumber is up 180% in price over a year ago. Ammunition is not the only item that Covid has caused to skyrocket in price.

I think Remington ammo has been flowing out to the shelves for a while, anecotally there's a look like they are concentrating on popular pistol cartridges. Most of the ammo and component companies have put out regular press releases through covid related to significant production increases, so covid does not seem to have disrupted the supply chain.

I believe a few gun shop break ins have been reported, but otherwise people seem to be working and planning for their futures with these ammo purchases. There may be a demand increase, but you could be on to something. Maybe, a little inflation might be coming, probably not, at least gas prices have been down since January.

That old supply and demand thing Craig, as people get out more and travel increases demand goes up. I know my clients in the oil business are delighted at the moment, a far cry from where they were a year ago. When the economy comes roaring back, which it has begun to do, I would only expect gas prices to rise.

Not near as exciting as a conspiracy theory but I think a bit more accurate.

Amen to that! Especially when you post admissions like this.

As it turns out, Sen Toomey agrees with you on illegal immigration, welfare, personal and corporate taxes, creeping socialism, & foreign policy.

But thanks for finally being honest about it. Single issue voting at its best!

Hahahaha... that's funny.

Your link you offer as proof of RINO Pat Toomey's Conservative bent is hilarious. All of his positions on the various issues are either "inferred" or "unknown" according to the key. But at least Toomey is honest about supporting gun control legislation. That mirrors his responses to me when I have e-mailed him on various issues.

I won't support any candidate who supports infringing upon the 2nd Amendment Rights of law abiding U.S. citizens any more than I would support one who advocates infringing upon the 1st Amendment... or any other part of the Constitution they swore an oath to Protect, Preserve, and Defend.

That does not make me a single issue voter. It means that, unlike you and the other Liberal Democrats here who support anti-gun Democrats blindly and without hesitation, I recognize what really is a threat to our freedom. I recognize that it is seditious to advocate undermining the Constitution by any means other than introducing legislation to lawfully amend it. I recognize that things like taking the 2nd Amendment Rights of citizens is far more egregious and criminal than illegally entering the U.S. House of Representatives during a protest, and putting your feet on Nancy Pelosi's desk.

The only groups that are denying that Pat Toomey is a RINO are Liberal Left sources like Politico or The Guardian. He is barely Right of Mitt Romney. He criticized Trump for commuting the sentence of Roger Stone, yet he couldn't be bothered to complain about the misdeeds of the FBI, or the Obama Administration illegally spying on the Trump campaign, phony dossiers, or the entire sham impeachment. He was even worse in the second sham impeachment when he sided with Romney with his vote to convict Trump. He was mostly a fiscal conservative, but he never did much in the way of introducing legislation to curb illegal immigration or creeping socialism. I held my nose and voted for him until he turned on gun owners. After that, I left my vote for U.S. Senator blank, because there was no good choice on either side.

This ammo shortage is absolutely a supply and demand issue. But unlike the forces driving the prices of 2" x 4"'s and plywood, this has little to do with Covid19, and everything to do with the threat from anti-gun Democrats. The same thing happened in 2013 when Obama was in office, and there was similar panic buying when Bill Clinton was in office. There was no pandemic then, and Remington was in full production. The lame attempts by Libtards to place the blame anywhere else other than anti-gun Democrats is typically dishonest and misleading behavior. But if you repeat a lie often enough, then maybe eventually folks will even believe that video tapes showing suitcases full of ballots being pulled out from under tables at 4:00 AM in Georgia, after the Press and election observers were sent home, is normal legitimate behavior.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.
