Always. Between the both of us we have plenty of 22 ammo. Getting nines has been problematic so we didn't shoot very much of those. We're both thinking this ammo run thing isn't going to last much longer. If it does I have 5 gallon buckets full of brass so I'll drag out the 650 and casting equipment and reload about 10,000 rounds of nines. Then we'll be able to do some real shooting once the weather warms up. I have several CCW classes lined up in another month and it really sucks being reduced to running the courses with just 22s. We really want people to be shooting their CCW guns but getting 3 boxes of factory center fire ammo is nearly impossible at any price these days. It really makes no sense but that's good old panic buying for you.
On her last 25 rounds she finally nailed it.
Also, .40 FMJ has jumped up to over .60/round down here. And that's only when you can find it. Haven't even tried to find .380 recently. I'm not an ammo hoarder by any means, but getting down to a box of each in FMJ + a couple small boxes of home-defense FPD in each bothers me a bit.
Yes. And get a Dillon for pistol loading and never look back. Still use the old rock chucker purchased in the late 70's for rifle and Mec 9000's with an automate for shotgun.
Components can be hard to find from time to time especially primers so stock up when you can.
If you never shot a gun before let me warn you about the one you mentioned about.
I was 16 when I shot the Lethal Weapon gun and I was holding the gun wrong and the kick from the gun scrapped off the top part of my wrist.
Good for you I think...
I'm ordering 30+ round stick magazines for my Lethal Weapon Beretta 92 just because 15 and 17 round mags isn't enough. If I could find one I would buy a 50 round drum for it. While I'm at it I want a shoulder stock and a can so it can be really evil and sinister looking. wonder how much all the tax stamps would cost for that? Oh and my Beretta is better than the one in the movies. Mine's an Inox model.
That's one of the real ironies of this debate. High round capacity mags are much more likely to jam. Like they did with the batman shooter. If he had standard 20 rd mags they wouldn't have jammed, and he could have quickly reloaded and been even more deadly.
