The great post-Newtown ammo shortage continues apace. We’ve heard reports of increasing (i.e. some) supplies hitting the shelves in some areas, but most gun stores are still rationing and certain calibers are still in short supply (i.e. all the popular ones). Bottom line: The People of the Gun are still struggling to replace and let’s face it stock-up on firearm food. While there’s ongoing resentment when ammo meets campers, there’s also a lot of ammo sharing between friends, family and strangers. Even as ammo makers work feverishly to satisfy America’s seemingly insatiable demand for cartridges they’re doing what they can to help the gun community. Hat tip to Winchester Ammunition for helping fuel Nick’s dreams of 3-Gun glory and Freedom Munitions for this act of .223 caliber kindness [via tacticalwire.com] . . .
A tremendous gesture by Freedom Munitions, Inc. (www.freedommunitions.com) has prevented what looked to be the eminent cancellation of a rifle class at the 2013 MGM Jr. Shooter Camp. Freedom Munitions, an Idaho company is supplying 12,000 rounds of .223 ammo for the MGM Junior Shooter Camp in Parma, ID, July 21 – 23.
Rhonda Gibson, Director of the MGM Jr. Shooter Camp stated, “This is amazing considering how hard it is to come by ammo right now, and the price. We are truly grateful. Freedom has come to our rescue.”
Primarily a camp for competitive pistol shooters, the MGM Jr. Shooter Camp strives to offer diversity in shooting experiences for its participants. Thanks to Freedom Munitions, the ‘Intro to Rifle’ class will be included and will be taught by world class professional shooter Matt Burkett. It is being held in Parma, ID at the Parma Rod and Gun Club.
According to Freedom Munitions’ most helpful SAVE TIME – >> CLICK HERE << TO CHECK WHAT’S IN STOCK RIGHT NOW widget, 50 BMG is the only caliber that’s good to go. New Jersey residents, whose state government is about to ban rifles firing that caliber, must be especially pissed.
Never mind. Simple math tells us that the ammo shortage can’t last forever. In a couple of years this will all seem funny. Or not. Meanwhile, how’s it going for you? Got ammo?
