Ammo rumors

My father was at Roots, a Pennsylvania flea market/farmers market, and a man who sales ammo was saying something about "all foreign made ammo will soon soon be imported with primers that are only good for 90 days" and that surplus ammo will no longer be available for civilians to by in the near future.?! It seems a little implausible to me but I had to ask if anyone else had heard any similar rumors cause tha's all I think about it.

Yep, it's true. In fact, after 90 days the primers turn into little radio transmitters, so the black helicopters can home in on your location, and take you away to a FEMA camp.

Sounds like a good salesman to me. I'm sure he sold all of his "endangered" ammo at a decent profit, and he will be back next week with banter to the effect of "this is the last of it, don't think I will be getting any more."

I love all the stuff that comes down the pipe. There's nothing like sitting on my neighbor's deck(ex army/vietnam vet/ex dc metro cop/ex secret service) and listening to him tell me all the gun laws as he knows them. "No high capacity magazines in MD period, mossberg shotguns with rifle sights and 8 round capacity illegal, PA has the same waiting period as MD and every state is the same cause it's a federal law!" You just can't change some people's minds if that is what they think oh well.

When you hear one of those types spouting this kind of stuff, you should tell them you're with the government... Make up some official-sounding agency name... Then start asking them how they know about this "classified information", and warn them they could be sent to prison for 20 years for telling people what he just told you. Then, start talking into your cuff... "Bravo Sierra Six-Niner, we have a national security code 10-99, recommend you alert HQ that I have a suspect for interrogation... Roger that, arrest in progress..."


I love taunting people.

If the rumors sell more ammo maybe that's a good thing.
Some people need an excuse to buy more and being concerned that the government is coming after our guns and ammo is also a good thing because sometimes it really does.

Ask that guy if he knows that Winchester buys ammo from at least one foreign ammo maker and sells it here, in Winchester boxes. Would that have the 90 day primers? Ask that person if they know how long a shipment of ammo takes to get from a factory to the gun shop?

LOL. Never buy into a rumor that comes from a guy with something to gain by spreading it. In fact, never buy anything from him.

Exactly. Gov't would never allow Big Business to be inconvenienced. Maybe
