Dealer of Ammunition says 5.7 x 28 on a new banned list?

Post by wtrbxr » 03 Dec 2012, 19:30

HEY I HAVE BEEN CALLING ALL OVER THE PLACE FOR THIS AMMUNITION TO NO AVAIL!! My local gun shop and firing range in Monroe, GA said today that his supplier/wholesaler says that this ammunition will no longer be available until a US manufacturer begins to produce it. He had 4 boxes left at a price of $50 per box shipped. I purchased it after checking the prices on Gun Broker and the likes.

He said that there is an executive ban by the King Obama that will not allow the importation of this ammunition. I googled and binged this and found nothing. Anyone have any insight?

Your dealer lied to you - I don't know if it was intentional, he may have just been repeating a lie that he was told. But he did rip you off (IMHO).
FNH ammo is still filtering in and American Eagle (Federal) is already producing it. The problem is people are buying & hording because of bam-bam and no one can keep it on the shelves.
If you want ammo now, you may have to pay big money for it. Otherwise, you can wait, shop around, or take up reloading. There are a couple if threads on here that people will post in as soon as they find ammo available but sources dry up fast.

Rap, Federal is producing nothing other than fancy boxes, and perhaps the bullet. All Ammo is still loaded by FNH or Fiocchi..

Well see, even I learned something...
But the rest was true.

I know it is still coming in because I know of businesses that were recently out & then they weren't. They don't get much but it does trickle in.

What I can't figure out is why FNH does not have the presses running 24/7 pumping out 5.7 ammo. They could push the pre-hording wholesale/retail price up by $10 a box and many people, including me, would happily buy it.

How do we know they don't? Maybe people are just hoarding that much?

I know of one ammo plant in particular (not FNH) that has stepped up production & my buddy's getting plenty of overtime but they still can't keep up with demand. I've heard of the same thing happening in a few other places but don't know anyone in those places to confirm it.

I was at two stores today & couldn't find any 5.56 or .22LR in either one. :(

yeah when FN decides to ship us some.... :lmao:

NOT

We have gotten very little in since the election which by the way was totally expected because it happened after the previous election. And the talk of banning blah blah blah is nothing new as well.

Believe me when I tell you I am completely stressed out as I was with the last election because we are in the business of making ammunition and if we can't get supplies then we can't make the ammo and we have 3 kids to feed. I really don't want to go back to Mac & Cheese. I hate that crap :(

You do not want me picking up your kids Lisa, I will teach them how to drive on snow & ice the same way I learned :laugh: They'll be scarred for life :evil:

Oh, and I'll take mac & cheese over ramen any day. Mac & cheese rocks! :laugh:

Now what else can I make Lisa hungry for?
PB&J?
Cornbread is good.
Oh I know, biscuits & gravy! Actually, I might go get some of that myself :thumb:

Banned list? Ask him to see the list :D Ask him who wrote the list. Maybe he wrote it just to scare customers into buying guns. It sounds like BS to me.

I know the libs want "assault weapons" and "high-capacity" magazines now. In the words of Rahm Emanuel (or was it Saul Alinsky), "never let a serious crisis go to waste." They are using the recent tragedies to shuffle toward their "utopian" dream of a completely disarmed America. They are happy to do it piecemeal. How big of a piece will they push for this time? Who knows.

With a Republican controlled house, I don't think they have a chance of enacting any gun control measures without P. Obama using executive power. Watch out in two years though.

I am worried that P. Obama is going to get to pick one or two more justices to the Supreme Court during this term. That might be a real game changer for our 2nd Amendment rights as we know them.

Cross you fingers.

Oh no, it's official. I read it on the internet. FiveseveN pistols are soon to be banned.

Nope, but then again there are a lot of members on here. None of the ones I know by name is selling that auction.

I got this from the following usgov link: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/1 ... 8#overview" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

H.R. 538: To protect the Nation's law enforcement officers by banning the Five-seveN Pistol and 5.7 x 28mm SS190, SS192, SS195LF, SS196, and SS197 cartridges, testing handguns and ammunition for capability to penetrate body armor, and prohibiting the manufacture, importation, sale, or purchase of such handguns or ammunition by civilians.

Hopefully it will not pass.

It won't and will never be very unlikely to pass. They've been trying to ban the 5.7 since 05.

Perhaps more of a cautionary view? But consider never say never.

- Bet many never thought they'd be standing on the street corner and look around to see no less than 6 cameras recording everything at that intersection.

- Bet many smokers never thought they'd be huddle around a sandbox container in 20 degree temperatures "enjoying their freedom to smoke".

- Bet many never thought one day they'd rent an automobile that had a software governor programmed that capped top speed at 80mph.

- Bet many never thought a chemical giant would be responsible for putting more farmers out of business than anything else so as to control the crops grown.

ETC.

Just some thoughts. Not right or wrong. But never say never ...
