Just curious if anyone of you guys have been doing any panic buying since the Vegas shooting just went down? I, admittedly, just bought 10K primers and another 8lb keg of gun powder just in case.

No panic here.

I need more primers because I'm using them up... but not getting excited about the anti-gun zealots because none of them are in a position to ruin my hobby just right now.

No, not at all.

Just thanking God that HRC is not in office.

For once, I feel like I have what I need. Took a while to get here, but it feels good not panicking. I don't trust Trump not to cave, but ditto on HRC not being in there.

I just remember how hard primers and powder was to get during the last scare. Don't want to be unprepared for this go around.

I've been panic buying from the first day I got into handloading, no end in sight ;)

Nope. I feel I have what I need and as time wears on I see less and less likelihood of the bans and mass confiscations everyone screamed about years ago.

I'd like to see a legislator propose a new law to make murder, like REALLY illegal.  Yeah, maybe that would have stopped the mad man who obviously has no regard for the current law against mass murder.

Start reloading.

Don't wait till you run low, or out, of components to buy. 

I don't "need" primers, but when Cabela's put S&B primers on sale a few weeks back, I bought a few boxes, just to put away.

Same for powder.  If I see a good deal on a powder I use I get a jug, or two, of it.  I've never had any "go bad" even stuff I've had over 30 years.

The next things on my list of stuff to buy and put away are pistol bullets.  I don't "feel" like I have enough.  Got the .223 Rem. and .308/.30-06 bullets covered last year when I saw good sales on them.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.
