I have never seen it this bad. Check out the "out of stock" situation on the below examples:

Bravo Company upper receivers. Out of stock on 10 out of 11 uppers: Link

Bravo Company complete uppers: Link

LMT is 20 weeks backordered on their 16" upper: Link

Most rifles at LMT are backordered up to 20 weeks: Link

Rainer Arms is "out of stock" on more than half of their complete upper models: Link

Noveske is "out of stock" on nearly every upper they offer: Link

Most complete uppers are "out of stock" at DSG Arms: Link

AIM "sold out" on uppers: Link

AIM "sold out" on complete upper: Link

This is just a few examples. If you check other sites you'll find similar situations.

Something doesnt seem right about this.

You really think that gun manufacturers would really be out of parts these days? Seems too me that the supply to non-military and non-police is strictly limited.

Now, that's the real question ain't it?

Obviously, recent gun purchases have been way up.

But lately, the NRA's sidekick & industry lobby NSSF has been making acquiescent overtures to the Gungrabbers lately! With TRAITOROUS a-holes like these, who needs enemies?

Larry Pratt's GOA, NAGR, and Alan Gottlieb's 2nd Amend.Foundation are few of the most uncompromising Pro-gun organizations. NRA & NSSF are a bunch of RINO pussies.

And a lot of personnel shifts have been made going in and out of the not so pro-gun NYC paper shuffling junkies at Cerberus Capital-owned Freedom Group related companies.

As anyone watching the gun market would be familiar, at least for me, one's first distinct macro economic indicators is the price of bulk 1000rd ammo pack/box/pallet in 9mm, .45ACP, .40S&W manufactured and shipped by both American and Ruskie/Fmr.CommBloc mfr. alike.

But for me though, the most indicative signifiers are the price of rifle/carbine bulk 1000 rounds ammo packs/box/pallets in both 7.62x39mm & 5.45x39mm for the AK, and the 55gr. Lake City (what US Military use) & Sellier & Bellot (Czech, now owned by Brazilians) in 5.56NATO for AR, as baseline markers.

Ammo price indicates, aside from the obvious supply/demand, import export costs (administrative/tariffs/taxes/fees) fluctuation in commodity price (lead, copper, tungsten, steel, zinc, polymer coating, etc.), then shipping (fuel, ocean & air).

So IMO, your sure sign that the S has really HTF? It's when 5.45mm Ruskie Tula/Wolf/Bear ammo 1000pack (now $150~$215) go above $300. And once any 5.56x45mm 1000rd bulk pack go above $500~550 (currently depending on US vs.Ruskie/CommBloc, brass vs.steel, sale or not, 55gr. vs.heavier, it ranges somewhere between $240~450).

By the time those price markers are surpassed, it would be almost beyond the point of no return. By then, currency collapse and hyperinflation would be on. Period.

So is it nefarious and intentional to constrict non-policestate apparatus, citizenry's supplies?

Or is it organic, where the 100th Monkey Syndrome has begun, and people are simply waking up at faster rates and are massively buying up guns, ammo, parts & supplies, and the manufacturers simply can't keep up.

I'm not sure. Though I would posit, probably a bit of both. But truly, only time will tell. So who knows?

Stay tuned...

I think that if those running the show

I think that those running the show, yes those who control our media and choose our presidents, those who have for many years worked towards the takeover of the US, those people will fall if SHTF.

There are enough people who know who they are, and who are associated with them. So, they think their brainwashing is so complete that every member of their own forces will abide their unconstitional orders?

The real trick would be exposing them before they have a chance to turn person againts person here. To do that, the media must be stopped or be made to tell the American people the truth about a lot of things.

The world will once again see peace when the real terrorists are exposed and eliminated. It is getting high time that the American military stand up and do what it is they took oath to do.




Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul, or NO ONE at ALL!

Otherwise it's full-on NDAA police state at home, and WWIII abroad starting with Syria, followed by Iran.

I would have to speculate that much of 'preppers' community have got to be R3VOLutionaries, at least 40~60% of them.

That's a whole lot of capable people who can 'shake 'n bake' a new civilization post-$1.5QUADRILLION in derivatives & Federal Reserves' fiat currency induced collapse, if need be.D
