What to Buy Right Now!

With each passing day it appears more likely that Obama has a chance of becoming our next president. I don't think it will happen. I have more faith in the American people than that, but I would not bet against it. I never thought that Americans would re-elect Bill Clinton, and we did.

With the possibility of an Obama presidency rearing it's ugly head, what should we be purchasing as quickly as we can?

Right now, I think the vital component we need to be stocking up on is magazines. Yes, magazines. A prohibition against standard and high capacity magazines will very high on the anti's wish list after a January Obama inauguration. I know it, you know it, and the magazine dealers and manufacturers know it. Expect a fairly sharp increase in magazine prices after the November election if Obama is the one to win the vote.

So stock up now. If the standard magazine capacity for your firearm is greater than 10 rounds, you need to purchase as many magazines as you think you may need over the rest of your lifetime. It may be a good idea to buy those extra springs now also.

If I am wrong, and a prohibition against magazines that hold more than 10 rounds does not go into effect, you will still be ahead. A gunnie can never go wrong by owning a few extra magazines.

A good semi-auto rifle might be a pretty good thing to put on the shopping list, too.

Maybe this would make a good gift for my husband. I will have to keep that in mind. Thanks.

They would like to have a 6 round cap on semi auto magazines, so stocking up on any mafgs would be a good idea.
Ammo, ammo, ammo. stock up on plenty of ammo!

Ammo... That's the next big thing they go after...

I spent ALL afternoon visiting several gun stores, surplus shops and police supply houses, the unanimous consensus was ammo more than mags, but mags too...

this might be a hard question to answer here, but what would one consider to be enough ammo and/or magazines to have on hand?
