    No way, the overcharges were simply a way to pay for the top secret Stealth Bomber and other military weapons that none of us needed to know about at the time.

    Try again mr conspiracy goof. The cost of top secret operations are much better filched from our taxes. Just how new do you think these top secret operations are anyway?

    Wrong

    There is a area in the budget that covers those skunk projects.

    I see you know as much about that as you do FEMA

    which brings us back to the rising cost of ammo and the rising cost of loading your own, I suppose you could use a handgun to throw at someone or hit them over the head with a shotgun . No ammo=worthless gun

    California looked at ammo control as part of the gun control scheme. Probably got to thinking what some pissed off gun owner might do with those last frew rounds.

    Me? I have more than enough

    the best way to do away with guns is to make them irrelevant
    Gun control takes many forms, but it seems to me that the simple law of supply and demand is the main reason for the price increase. While the anti-gun crowd may not be directly responsible, you can bet the farm that they are on the sidelines cheering their little hearts out.
    It's a mechanical device, designed by humans, built by humans and operated by humans. What could possibly go wrong?

    whats the big deal, around here ammo prices have actually come down a little.

    Components are easier to find, particularly small pistol primers, Projectiles are no problem and you can find powder anywhere..

    Big deal, all they have to do is call the FBI, NYS troopers or the CIA, I'm pretty sure they know where I am.

    and if the tracking device is in the ammo, there better have good equipment, because those little buggers are traveling 1050fps with a power factor of 672
