The 1000-Round Ammo Reporting Nonsense

If they manage to jam it through, it's gonna cost me, because I will always buy ammunition in 1K+ lots. You wanna list? Put my name right at the head of it.

Why? Because none of your business, is why. And because I shoot that much. And because if you're worried about the buying habits of middle-aged spinsters and a zillion other law-abiding Americans, you need to worry and would do so even in a fuzzy-Nerf world. Jerks. (Frank, Chuckie? I'm lookin' at you. 'Cos you're freedom-hating yammerheads.)

C'mon Bobbi! Don't beat around the bush here!

It has occurred to me several times over the last day or two that even two boxes of the buik .22 cheap stuff is over 1000 rounds.

And I tend to buy 4 or 5 boxes of that almost every time I walk into my local store, just because I've got quite a few .22s that are more fun than a basket of kittens to take to the range.

Put my name on that list, too.

The best way to show how stupid a rule is is to follow it perfectly. If they're going to report every time I buy a thousand or more, I'll buy ten thousand - 1K at a time.

Would everybody feel better if [name redacted] had bought his ammo in thirty trips to the local WallyWorld?

Welcome back to 1968. Part of the original law was a signature for every ammo purchase, along with proof of age for pistol ammo. It wasn't legal then, and its not legal now, and I will do everything possible to keep it from becoming so.

The best way I know of is to vote. If the gun grabbers are not in office they don't have the power to pass the laws they want.

Even if you can't vote for Romney, please still vote. The down ballot
is at least as important. If a bill doesn't reach the executives desk he can't sign it.

So now you get to buy 999 rounds of ammunition and one plastic dummy round for dry fire, misfire practice.

I would be sending the order out to the packaging line as soon as the ink dried on the nonsense in DC.

Nope. Buy 1001. Jam 'em up. Make it clear that "the list" will be so huge that it is meaningless.

--Which it is. Who shoots and doesn't have over 1000 rounds at home right now?

"Who shoots and doesn't have over 1000 rounds at home right now?"

Me.

Well, it depends on the caliber. Little short on my 6.5 Swede (200) and my 8mm Mauser (400), but I'm over 1K on .30 Carbine, 38 Special, 9mm, and .40 S+W. In fact, I might be doing some Horse Trading up at Jay's N.E. Blogshoot, so I'll let you know later. ;)

Ooooh, Trading Ammo in Bulk! Wonder if they plan on Outlawing Bartering in their Anti-Fredom Bill?

Plus, I'm SURE they want to Ban Reloading also.

If 22lr counts, I have over 1k in my range bag at any given time...

Able said...

"middle-aged spinster" ?!?!?

Who are you talkin' about?

Roberta X said...

Flatterer! ;)

Mark said...

I too take issue with the "Middle Aged Spinster" And as for ammo counts, I take my 7 biological kids and 3 non biological kids shooting almost every month. 10 kids shooting is a lot of ammo so of course I buy 3 or 4 k a month.

-Insert perennial marriage proposal here-

I'll buy 'em by the 1000 lot because, Eff-yew Chuck, that's why!
