I have been wondering something for a while. I keep hearing that Bushmaster, Armalite and others are filling 'War Orders.' I have also heard that the American made 5.56 is hard to get because it is needed for the "War." But... (here is the thought part) I don't see large numbers of NEW U.S. troops being equipped, and I don't see large numbers of rounds being expended in a theater sized conflict. All I see are previously equipped troops, using current ammo supplies. Where are the guns going? Where is the Ammo being sent? Afterall, we are not in a WWII scenario that would justify the volume of new weapons and ammo being used for "War." Isreal! I think the guns and ammo are being sent to Israel to help THEM repel the angry, jihad minded extremists that are pounding at the gates. Maybe we are sending beau-coup shipments of small arms to the Isreali population so they can defend themselves without using the Nuclear Option? Arming every man, woman and child with a new rifle and cases of ammo? Thoughts? TheRedGoat

The US Armed Services are buying while they have the checkbook for a while.

they're building up a stockpile so they can issue them to the citizen militia when we disband the standing army?

Actually, Arock and I are stockpiling all of them for when we decide that it's time for Texas to become an independent country again.

Really? How very interesting. Last I heard though, the current plans for revolt in Texas include the mention of "Reclaiming Texas for Mexico!" I think you boys need to step up your timetable, before the other team beats you to the goaline. I don't speak Spanish too well, myself. TheRedGoat

I keep hoping the Conch Republic will secede again and declare the lower Florida Keys an independent nation. I'd move there. Unfortunately, tourist T-shirts and scuba adventures means the gross national product would be severely limited. I doubt they could afford a pre-ban and a case of ammo for the National Defense Force. Then again, speaking Spanish there probably would help too.
