Being a firearm owner over the past 8 years has been simultaneously cool and exhausting. Cool, because of the bevy of great new products and availability of previously banned items (i.e. AWB items and such). Exhausting, due to the nearly continuous ammo shortages and endless bombardment of propaganda prophesying gun control doom. That said, for this election cycle, I don't plan on being caught off guard. I've been purchasing ammo in reasonable amounts whenever I have a little extra $$...I'm definitely not one of those guys who clears shelves of all .22LR available! I also got into reloading, which has brought down the cost of my .45Auto and .38Special considerably. Finally, I purchased a new XDM-45 and couple extra magazines while they're still readily available. Has anyone else done something similar? Or have we all finally caught up with the shortages and bought all the guns and ammo we need (want, really)? Will there be another "ammo-geddon" like we've seen in the past couple of years?
