I shoot a lot of .45ACP and never have any trouble getting ammo either online or in local sporting goods stores. I don't reload but shoot factory reloads as well as various brands of new ammo. Mostly hardball for economy but some defensive hollowpoints.

I don't dispute the OP. I haven't experienced a shortage personally, but keep hearing about it.


You're lucky. 9mm and 45acp are still plentiful, even though the price has gone up.
The biggest shortage is for 22LR and 380. They are practically impossible to find.


I have a 380 and I was told by a guy at the gunshop that most manufacturers use the same machinery for 9mm and 380, but they have to make small modifications to the machines to switch between the two. He said that since 9mm is more popular, they only make 380 lines once or twice a year.

California has been encouraging business to leave for far too long. It's a shame Schwarzenegger was elected as a republican.

The talkers are always beating the "moderate republicans lose" drum, but considering all the money spent by bush, I don't see how anyone can call him a conservative.


The "talkers" want a paycheck. Extremism keeps people listening and I think they want republicans to lose. If you look at their numbers, they always do better when a democrat is in the whitehouse.

This throws a monkey wrench in the Kenya argument doesn't it?

The only way these "young healthies" will participate is if they can stay on their parents' policies. I guess something is better than nothing.

:o Mother Jones breaking the bad news to the Obamatrons that think they are going to win in 2014

http://www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2013/10/new-poll-shows-democratic-incumbents-big-trouble
Today brings a new poll from Democracy Corps titled
"Revolt against DC and the Republican Congress." And it's true: their polling shows that even in Republican districts, the GOP's brand has taken a beating.


But once you get past the generic questions and ask about approval/disapproval of
actual members of Congress, the picture turns sharply. I've combined two charts to show what happens when you ask people in battleground districts about their own representatives:

In Democratic districts, net incumbent approval has plummeted by 11 points, from +8 approval to +3
disapproval. In Republican districts, incumbent approval has gone down only 4 points. You see the same results when they ask a question about warmth of feeling toward incumbents: It's down 7 points in Republican districts and 9 points in Democratic districts.


This isn't good news for Democrats. It's true that attitudes toward the Republican Party have taken a bigger hit than attitudes toward the Democratic Party, but attitudes toward actual incumbents are exactly the opposite. And in elections, that's what matters.




I've tried to explain this to many, many liberals and they don't seem to "get it".


Don't celebrate too soon. Democrats have always been better at getting out the vote, and republicans consistently lose the pr war because they play the democrat game and fall short defending positions that most Americans agree with.

I'd say it is a non issue. The federal government gave the power to the states. I, and many other conservatives, call for exactly that, all the time. It's in the states hands, and that's Ok in my book. If conservatives jump on her over this they are being hypocritical.


Interesting perspective. I can agree with that. If the Feds are incompetent, and states can do a better job, then let the states handle it.
