Warning about the Firearms Market, Ammunition, & Quality Control/Quality Assurance.

This does not just apply to AR stuff. Ammunition and Firearms of ALL types are sold out everywhere. The buying frenzy and empty stores are unprecedented. You think quality dropping off during the mad rush Obama years were bad? Well hold on to your hat.

This means that everything made from this month and on, is going to be highly suspect. Companies are going to skimp on Q.C./Q.A. to meet less demanding consumers.

If you buy any ammunition, ammunition components, firearms, magazines, parts, or firearm accessories, you better be sure it's made by someone who stands behind it. If you buy budget stuff now, you get what you deserve.

The turds that are about to be produced are going be a biblical. To this day, I'm still dealing with crap that was produced during the Obama rush years.

This is my warning. I wouldn't bet against this advice.

As far as ammo goes, I bought it cheap and stacked it deep.

People should keep the ammo boxes if they load up mags. When their gun blows up at least they will know what ammo did it.

I have had more co-workers come to me for advice about guns and ammo in the last couple weeks than I could ever imagine.

So far. About the only advice I've been able to give them is to not wait till it's an emergency before you decide it's time to buy a gun.

This applies to many products. In general when production ramps up QC goes down.
