A friend of mine is already stocking up on ammo for 2012 because his wife is convinced it's the end.

This has convinced me to start buying more ammo, not because I think 2012 will be the end (although I hope it will be) but because other people will buy ammo in such anticipation and others like me will buy ammo to head the bottleneck off at the pass, thereby helping to create the rush on ammo supplies we are trying to avoid.

Go sell crazy somewhere else. We're all full up here.

I will buy it a box here and there like I always have. Usually make a decent size purchase of ammo, gunparts, etc. with my tax return every year too.

Have no idea if 2012 is the end, but why in the heck would you hope it would be?

just the harder to find stuff like 38 S&W or or some of the lesspopular rifle rounds because it took them for ever to restock the shevles with that as they concetrated on the popular rds first

2012 has been predicted as the apocalypse. not the us government failing apocalypse. not the devaluation of world currency apocalypse. the end of thew world as the human race knows it. like the type of world event that killed the dinosaurs and what not.

if thats what happens, having spent all my money for the last year of my life on beans and bullets wont help me one little bit. spending my money on beer, whiskey, and women would be a much more enjoyable way to go out.

furthermore, i flatly refuse to spend my life living in fear of living my life.

in short, my gun and gun related buying habits wont change one iota.

If 2012 is the big one, I'm going to get me a beer and a lawn chair and go out in the yard and watch it happen. It should be better than 3-D.

I'm sure alot of folks will stock up for 2012 with ammo, food stamples, survival supplies, and medical supplies much like happened for Y2K.

Prices for ammo and survival equipment will go up much like they did for Y2K.

Right now though I'm more concerned with price hikes because of all the circulation of news that the white house is going to introduce a new 'assault weapons' ban.

Ah, the Mayan calendar. These guys reportedly designed a complex multi-cyclical calendar that allegedly predicted many historical events including the end of the world, yet they believed that a human heart needed to be cut out periodically and offered up to make the sun happy.

The captain of the losing team involved in their favorite sport was beheaded. (I bet old Mike Vick might be able to stir up enough brain activity to turn down an offer from the Tenochtitlan Redskins).

The clincher is that these highly-advanced engineering and astronomical geniuses' fancy calendar couldn't seem to inform them of the timing of their own demise.

I suppose that sometime around Thanksgiving 2012 all the rapturists will start doing quite a bit of standing around looking up with doe-eyed expectancy.

no I think 2012 has been predicted as IDIOTS who know nothing about the Mayan calendar sensationalizing the notion that the Mayans predicted the end of the world.

the reality is they had several calendars which "ended" like this latest one, the difference was they made new ones. The Mayans died out before they could make another calendar to come after 2012.

And the best part of this for Y2K, was the bargain deals on all this stuff at garage sales and pawn shops the summer of 2000.

Y2K was great economic boom for my buddy who had a gun shop then.

He would always say to his friends not to buy new but wait until 2001 when all the scared rabbits began trading in their SHTF guns.

as pointed out, if it is THE END, then I want to have a nice supply of beer, whiskey, and a few hot female "adult entertainers" around to welcome the Apocalypse.

if it is SHTF EOTWAWKI scenario, I'm good to go on ammo.

Got plenty of ammo, but what everyone is missing is that if the SHTF guns and ammo will be plentiful and everywhere for free, either take it off dead bodies or relieve it from its former owners by force, (the government and its agents being a jackpot.) Either way the only real law will be your own conscience.

I personally don't believe 2012 will be the end of anything but these idiots to quit talking about the end of the world and the mayan calendar.

In my mind, neither is moronic, simply prudent if for no other reason than to avoid getting caught in the inevitable ammo shortage caused by the people who DO believe that either (or both) are the end of the world.
