Ammo and gun panics happen, and then the panic buyers find out they spent a lot of money at prices that quickly dropped again.

You can see a video posted by Hickok45, a long-running gun youtuber talking about the situation here.

One of the best comments in that video is from the Magnum Channel:

"I got a strike for a magazine loading video because they said it promoted illegal activity! Lol 😂"

Honestly, every paycheck, I always buy more ammo to stock up regardless of the times. I got a few thousand rounds of every caliber by now.

Even .30-40 Krag? What about 2mm Kolibri?

Ok, I need to be specific. I meant every caliber for every gun I OWN...and maybe a couple wild ones. I own a box of .50 BMG but I don't have a gun for it.


And I'm not paying 50 bucks a pop for a single tround for the Dardick

Why would they want more for .32 S&W Long instead of .357 Magnum? Is the former suddenly more popular now than .357 Magnum?

But now hear this. The following is Google's relatively new anti-gun policy for Youtube videos from Mar. 21, 2018 onwards:

Quote:
Policies on content featuring firearms
YouTube prohibits certain kinds of content featuring firearms. Specifically, we don’t allow content that:
  • Intends to sell firearms or certain firearms accessories through direct sales (e.g., private sales by individuals) or links to sites that sell these items. These accessories include but may not be limited to accessories that enable a firearm to simulate automatic fire or convert a firearm to automatic fire (e.g., bump stocks, gatling triggers, drop-in auto sears, conversion kits), and high capacity magazines (i.e., magazines or belts carrying more than 30 rounds).
  • Provides instructions on manufacturing a firearm, ammunition, high capacity magazine, homemade silencers/suppressors, or certain firearms accessories such as those listed above. This also includes instructions on how to convert a firearm to automatic or simulated automatic firing capabilities.
  • Shows users how to install the above-mentioned accessories or modifications.
If you want to see a video about this, here's a link.

Will this include historical documentaries or even films that show how historical firearms are put together too? How safe is the IMFDB wiki from this new wave of censorship?

I was sure this was a joke when I read the headline, but it's legit

Low demand, low supply, so you pay a premium

Eh, I can see owning a bit of some common calibers even if you don't actually own anything that will pew-pew-pew it, finances and whatnot providing of course.


So did I, but that said, shit I'm game. I probably spend as much time there as I do on YouTube anyway, so kooky as it may be it's also damn convenient in my case.
