i think all of you guys should buy as  much  of it as you can.........guns and ammo and keep buying no matter what, while you can. thst is just my opinion.   right now, it is plentiful.  maybe one day soon , no so much......


just be sure to stay away from dpms,  bushmaster,   remington, h&r and marlin.  the bastards sold out to cerberus, aka, the freedom group........freedom group?  man doesn't that induce nice warm fuzzy feelings?

Hey, the original Bushmaster owner is re-opening his business in the same factory. New Bushies by springtime!

HPD, The name Cerberus is very fitting for these people.

Cerberus is a multi-headed dog guarding the gates of the underworld. (Greek mythology)

Did'nt these people (?) own Chrysler at one time?

yep...........they were in gm too.   i think it is a israeli front company......


my feelings on it. are they are going to try and mess up the gun companies in the united states thereby creating supply problems. the customer service at these companies has fallen off a cliff since they were bought out too.

George Soros is a stockholder of Cerberus.  What's wrong with that picture?

They sold out because each was going out of business.  I don't know who is getting all those NICS checks or why, but the gun manufacturing biz has not been doing that well.

Million Dollar Bonus Mode: ie ASS MODE


You post such trash and the website loses credibility. Most sensible United States citizens do not stock up on guns and ammo and trust their government and local police to protect them. This right wing gun nut shit will alienate more sensible readers away from this website.

You would think that the rough spot the economy is experiencing is like a disaster or something. Nothing so far fetched is going to happen. Don't feed the hysteria by discussing such topics. Don't be part of the problem.

lol, okay, I'll admit to going "say wha'?" whilst reading that post - given your history of commentary - but by the end figured you'd merely (Mschievously) left off the "sarc" tag. . .

gave you a +1, but hey, if you're looking for triple-digit down marks for braggin' rights, I could always reconsider, *grin*

Just a thought, if you took a weapon and fired one round every second, it would take 32 thousand year's to fire a Trillion shot's.

Reality has to set in at some point imo.

You must not have lived in Los Angeles during the Rodney King riots.  Those who trusted the gov't and police to take care of them were surprised when they faded away for days, while the city burned, looters broke into thousands of businesses and chaos erupted.

You're new here, or you'd have been enlightened by now, about your so called 'rough spot' in the economy.  This is not a 'rough spot' or a little pot hole, it is a sink hole, big enough to swallow whole governments, banks and other entities.

Nobody is hysterical here, except you.  And remember, it was right wing gun nuts, who created this country in the first place.  It will be left wing anti-gun fascists who will take away your freedom a little bit at a time, until you are powerless.

Same in Baltimore.  They robbed and burned everything.  Not a Police person to be found.

Nodoby yet...  In Los Angeles, the low lifes pretty much burned down their own neighborhoods and all the businesses that somewhat supported them (mostly liquor stores).  It has taken over a decade, just to get now supermarkets to open in those areas.

I remember Queen Lateefa saying 'next time it will be the white neighborhoods', but you won't find that qoute anywhere.  While I think that whole mob is low IQ, I think they know better, than to do just that...

Yes, this is a rough spot.  This is a rough spot like Pearl Harbor on December 5th.

Your government just made it legal to imprison and kill you without a trial.

"Nothing so far fetched is going to happen."

Not sure about where you live, but it's already happening. Here in MA, an innocent man was killed by police, no fault found. You go out and kill someone "by tripping"/accident, you're going to jail, for 20 years.

As former LE, this doesn't pass the smell test, just like many others covered across the country.

The framers of our Constitution specifically cited the relationship of having firearms to engage an oppressive/corrupt political hierarchy/government. Now may not be the time, or maybe you think something will be invented to change the scope of an increasing population with fewer resources to support it?

I prefer to err on the side of "having it and not needing it, than to need it and not have it".

Good luck to you.

MsC, you are entirely mistaken. Billions of rounds of ammo are bought domesticly each year in the USA. You can never have too much ammo :)

Looks like the posters after  MsC don't know who MillionDollarBonus is.She even offered the disclaimer before her statement.

I've noticed reading comprehension skills here @ the Hedge are not peoples strong suit.

You've just been punked!

"I figure I can always barter a popular caliber like 9mm" sez our 28 y-o tennessean, dustin ramsey, who is welcoming the black helicopters, funny clicks on the phone, a quick visit from the cable co, a "bum" going thru his trash, a 'security review' of all his banking, c/card, medical, phone, and travel records as we write, and will receive the irs audit letter next week, just before the search warrants are served, if the guys in the choppers deem it "necessary" [to get a warrant;  not to toss his place]

no different from blogging on zH, really, as more than a few of us have discovered, eh, BiCheZ?
