I was told today by a gun store employee that the reason 7.62x39 and 5.45x39 ammo is so hard to find lately, is due to an African warlord buying it all up in preparation for a US strike on his country.

He told me this with a straight face, too.

Me thinks a certain gunstore owner has recently watched the movie "Lord of War".

I truly doubt there is anyway one despot in Africa could corner the market on ammo. Besides, a war with the U.S. could never be fought in a conventional manner with AK-47s and ammo. They would need to resist as an insurgency, e.g. IEDs and random attacks. Not full scale conventional war with AK47s eating through millions and millions of rounds of ammo.

In any event, does anyone really know why it's hard to find 7.62x39?

big military order was the alleged reason for spotty Wolf availability in 7.62 x 39.

Th U.N. is out bidding importers to keep you from having it.

So are all the black people already living here just sleepers waiting to be "activated"?

If so, we might need to worry a little.

Yeah, well even worse, a class III dealer told me yesterday that when I asked him are those ARs or M16s? "They're short barreled ARs, you can't get M16s, no one has them, Hollywood bought them all up." I was just kindof like, oh okay man.

Thanks for the heads up.
I am "Justifiably Paranoid" now.

Another guy that same day told me that the Russians weren't going to ship any more ammo until May/June timeframe...And I should come back then, and don't bother looking online, because they're out, too.

But he DID have a bunch of boxes of MagSafe 7.62x39 rounds if I wanted some plinking ammo.
