Academy in Covington limiting Ammo purchases



1 box per caliber and 3 overall.

Kinda cool, kinda dick, I guess. What you think?

I like this because it will hopefully allow stores to stockpile ammo again. This way things may get back to normal and prices won't shoot sky high like at those gun shows. Hopefully people will stop rushing out to buy ammo. I mean it wasn't banned and we are not currently at World War 3. So I don't understand.

I think its BS now that I have been out there before they open for almost two weeks, off and on, trying to get ammo. If I want to spend $300 bucks on ammo and I am the only one there, damnit, let me do it.

Yeah, but I'd rather 20 patriots have good ammo supply than 1 hoarder.

I haven't bought a pennys worth of ammo yet. There isnt any. And when I finally see it, yes, I am going to buy what I can, so I can go shoot when I damn well please.

Oh. I thought you meant you had been going every morning and buying ammo. Well goodluck in your quest for ammo and I mean I want to shoot just as bad as the next guy. I hope all this panic subsides and stores can eventually have ammo whenever you want it like they did up until a month ago.

The stores here in Wyoming started a 3 box limit this week. My dad brought me to get some .223s after he already went earlier that day. he went to get in the other checkout lane. The dude walked to my cashier and was like "uh, is it 3 per day or 3 per purchase? frick it"

He got an ammo tin full that day.

Have y'all tried the shooting range near y'all? When we were in Houston. We went to the Pasadena firing range and they had plenty to sell. A little higher that normal but I think at this point and time you take what you can get.

good counterpoint

but i stand by statement of first come first serve

i would rather have a proper ammo distribution along with mags.. but that's not democratic

this is 'merica, let the strongest survive

hopefully the strongest is red blooded patriots

What if it's all frail pasty asthmatics with no training or experience buying up all the ammo?

both Lafayette stores are doing it too. I like it personally. Before, the first 2 guys in line were scooping up 99% of the 223... I rather get 50-100 rds a couple times a week than get zero.

Plus this gives me time to drive to the second academy and still get a lil ammo and possibly a mag or two.

Nailed it!!!!

Most everyone has a family to protect and keep safe. Twenty boxes to keep twenty families safe and secure versus one shithead who thinks every zombie in the county will be trying to get him. ;)
