I've got plenty (as far as I see my needs, I know ppl who hoard ten times what I have and never shoot, to save it for the apocalypse) but I feel perfectly fine about complaining about any supply system that can't meet demand. There's an economic failure that should rightly worry every member of society, cause it may not be circumscribed just to ammo: it could be medicines, vaccines, food, you name it

You are right and it has been other items.  Important items that are needed.   I remember back in 2012 seeing Trump in an interview talking about the dangers of all our manufacturing leaving the US.    We were caught off guard on December 7, 1941 and only were able to rise to the occasion because of our manufacturing strength.   We manufactured a victory in that war.

Now, we are letting other country hold our nads in their hands and they can squeeze when ever they want.   Corona virus brought this weakness to light and if Dems win in November that lesson will fall by the way side.

I‘ve had good luck storing loose, bulk ammo in the 50 cal cans as well.  I put it inside of one of those VCI storage bag liners. They are made to line the interior of the common military ammo cans. I toss in one of the rechargeable moisture absorbers and just recharge them in the oven on a cold winter day. I usually just leave boxed ammo ‘as is’ in the cans, no liner. But I still toss in a moisture absorber.

Hey Dude, back in the day I was tripping over those surplus ammo cans and gave dozens away.  Dumb me considering what they cost today.   Wish I had all of them back.

I used to work on a lot of Sched 40 water lines years ago. These lines were under pressure, so when we added,repaired/replaced a line we would glue the parts and then turn them until the glue stopped the fixture from turning. Reason for this is when air is i side a pipe and you add an end cap or the like air is forced out leaving channels in the glue and a guaranteed leak. Turning the end cap smeared the channels away and sealed the pipe with NO water leaks when under pressure, which is much greater than just ground water.

Be sure to use the commercial pipecleaner and glue designed for PVC pipe and you will never have any leaks. A friend of mind didnt listen to me and lost several hundred dollars worth of stuff. Be forewarned

Damn Google.  See Google show me as a gun shop and people are pulling in my drive way and calling me all day for ammo because of that.   I was very polite when it started back in March but now I just answer and say I don't sell ammo and don't where they can get it and hang up.  The ones that come to the door I simply say I am not a gun shop and try Cabot's on Brey road and shut the door.   

Apparently every swinging dick in Michigan but me owns a 9mm as that is what they all ask for.   I don't will never sell ammo or even have people come here since I stopped building the custom guns but I can't get google to stop putting that on there.

That's one I won't receive because I don't want people here any more.  See when they would come here to be present when I built their shotgun I then ran a NCIC check on them before I could give it to them.  I also had a copy of their Drivers license.  So I knew who had been here.   If I start selling ammo it would be local and there is no back ground check required so all kinds of people would be coming here and I don't want my K-9's being around that many people or people seeing all my stuff. 

The locals call my place "The Compound" because of the lights, camera's and K-9's.   I believe in presenting a Hard Target so the thugs decide to look for something softer.   I want to keep it that was since I am old and want to keep all my good stuff I worked so hard for. [biggrin]

I was just hoping you would reconsider doing the parkerizing again but last time we talked you elaborated that the chemical supplier that you used exclusively had discontinued or changed their product. You also said you wouldn’t or couldn’t produce a sub-standard finished product. Oh well, I tried!!! 👌👍

Nope.  Nasty stuff to work with and since I have a limited number of years left on this rock I want to make the most of them and means stay healthy.   Hardly anyone parkerizes these days.

I realize the process is dangerous and has fallen out of favor, but personally I always felt a good parkerizing job on a firearm was one of the best looking finishes for a serious fighting gun.

I agree. All my ’daily driver’ guns and ‘truck guns’ are parkerized. And I‘ve bought them in the last 5 years.
