Is Russia Creating an Ammo Shortage?

In this weeks episode, Mark S Mann and Rory from the SGTReport discuss the very real possibility of Russia creating another ammo shortage here in the United States.
With major importers, like Wolf and Tula being sold out of Russian product (as SD warned readers was developing in early March as a result of the Ukrainian crisis), we examine how this will impact your ability to purchase practice and self defense rounds. Has Russia’s President Putin advised exporters of Russian ammo to either slow-walk orders or stop shipping altogether? How long could it last?
We also discuss who is purchasing firearms, what they are doing with them and how this impacts, not only the quality of ammo but the quantity available for sale.
Later in the program we look at the impact of Presidential cycles and how in just a few short years firearms and ammunition sales have grown from a declining market to a point of shortages.
We discuss hoarding vs investment in ammunition. We take an in-depth look at how cheap ammo can impact the investment you made in an expensive firearm.

*Breaking: Ammo Rush Begins Again As Russia Halts Soviet Ammunition Exports to the US!

Putin ammo shortageIn the wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy and fears of new control control legislation from the Obama administration, extreme shortages of ammunition have been sustained over the past 12-24 months, as panicked Americans have raided the shelves of Cabelas and gun-shows across the country buying literally every round they can get their hands on.  
Combined with multi-billion round purchases from gov’t 3 letter acronyms such as the DHS and FBI, (including even the USPS and IRS), the shortages have continued even as manufacturers have responded by drastically increasing production.
Over the past 6-12 months, shortages of some calibers such as 7.62 used in the popular AK-47 semi-automatic weapon have been alleviated somewhat via massive imports of Russian production. 
That is about to change.   [Read more...]

Silver Shortage Intensifying, Will Result in a Buying Panic

When it comes to real physical “hold in your hand” metal, there is NO ONE selling.  If no one is selling then how is it that the price could go down?  …COMEX and LBMA!  The paper markets, that’s how.  Paper contracts that are “sold” with no Silver, no Gold backing them AND no intention of ever delivering have hit the markets to knock prices down.

This “strategy” however, has spawned the unintended consequences of increasing demand for the real thing.
The recent US Mint shutdowns and premium spike in 90% silver is the looming “shadow” of shortage and as long as the “price” in the paper markets have JP Morgan’s boot on its throat, the shortage situation will continue, get more acute and ultimately blow up in a buying panic…exactly what JPM has been trying to avoid at all costs!

Guns & Ammo Shortages a Harbinger for What’s Coming to Gold & Silver Markets

gold & silver sold outBy Bill Holter:

With factories cranking out guns and ammo at 110% of capacity, how could a shortage currently exist?
MASSIVE DEMAND.

Now, think about the Gold and Silver mining industry.  Peak production took place over 10 years ago.  What do you think will happen when investors, big BIG investors not just in the U.S. but ALL over the world vote with their trillion Dollar wallets?  Do you really believe that you’ll have any chance at all to purchase Silver or Gold? 

No, you won’t which is why you need to be pre-positioned because what “was” available yesterday will go into hiding over night.  This is not even a bold prediction anymore.   This is exactly what will happen and again illustrate the simple concept of supply and demand!
