After getting caught up in an accident back in June, I am going to add one to the truck. The police wrote it up totally wrong---they had it as a 10 vehicle chain reaction r...

Re: Maybe prepare for another ammo shortage?

Well that sucks. I was just starting to see Hellfire missiles on the shelves at Walmart again. Same here.
