    Question This Just In - Trump Kills Jobs, Factories To Close?

    Thanks, Obama.

    WEBSTER, Texas (AP) -- President Donald Trump promised to revive manufacturing in the United States, but there's one once-burgeoning sector poised to shrink under his watch: the gun industry.

    Fears of government limits on guns - some real, some perceived - led to a surge in demand during President Barack Obama's tenure and manufacturers leapt to keep up. Over the decade ending in 2015, the number of U.S. companies licensed to make firearms jumped a whopping 362 percent. But sales are down and the bubble appears to be bursting with a staunch advocate for gun rights in the White House and Republicans ruling Congress...

    Funny thing... before the election a fellow who worked at a gun shop wrote an opinion piece saying he hoped Hilary Clinton would get elected. She was good for business.

    I hope this is true. 22 ammo is non existent and ridiculously over priced.

    It is available here. I can get Auto-match 325rnd brick for $19.00. Still not seeing a lot of Remington of Federal 500rnd bricks. At least they aren't $50.00 a brick anymore. Seems that $20.00 is the new $9.99.

    No, how is this his fault. The knucklehead before him caused a panic and the manufactures raised prices and took advantage of the situation. $50.00 for a brick of 22s, $10.00 for a box of 223 have you priced guns and ammo lately? So now their greed has caught up with them, no sympathy here.

    As long as Steven Tyler doesn't start wearing bullets in his hair, it's all good.

    I sold some Whiting Hackle on ebay for $650. I paid $40 for it at Rock Creek Mercantile.

    Capitalism at its finest!
