National Ammo Day November 19th

Just a reminder that November 19th is National Ammo Day.  This was started a few years ago by Kim du Toit as a BUYcott.  To wit:

The goal of National Ammo Day is to empty the ammunition from the shelves of your local gun store, sporting goods, or hardware store and put that ammunition in the hands of law-abiding citizens.  Make your support of the Second Amendment known--by voting with your dollars!

Now, this year is a bit unusual in the Americans have been on a guns and ammo purchasing binge since Obama won the election in 2008.  And we certainly did empty the shelves.   As a result, in many places ammo in most popular calibers is still in short supply.  The situation is getting better, however.   Unfortunately, with the economy in the tank and with no recovery in sight, it's more difficult for a lot of folks to buy in.  Participate if you can.

I made my contribution last night in the form of an order for a 1000 round case of Brown Bear 7.62x39 FMJ.
