After a couple of years of relative sanity, a couple or three months ago ALL the powder and all the primers except large rifle and 50 BMG disappeared from the local Sportsman's Warehouse. I checked last week and the shelves are still bare.
I thought maybe we had grown up after the hysteria when Obama was elected -- silly me. At least I assumed that the fearful ones all had several hundreds of powder in their bunkers and wouldn't have room for more.
Do we know what has caused the latest sheep-like stampede? Even these easily spooked folks, who probably aren't going to launch any rockets to the moon, surely know that a virus is too small to shoot.
