    Current Ammo Shortage?

    Favourite answer:

    Remember Covid? Remember how they started shutting down "non essential" businesses? That's what's different with this shortage versus all the other ones. People who never owned a gun suddenly saw a reason to own one, and then they needed ammo for it. Millions of new gun owners combined with factories having to reduce production due to "non essential" employees having to stay home created this shortage. Factories are struggling to resume production and keep up with demand.

    this may be goodbye, so will you come say goodbye hunting section? may i reveal who i really am?

    over the years, i had started this hobby almost completely alone. my parents are immigrants from a country torn apart by war. i learned alot from you guys. cane toad, and bear crap are the two who influenced me heaviest. i digress. i knew very little about this hobby. i was going through some pretty hard times back in 2011, 2012. didnt have any friends. my family is so traditional i dont even want to start on that. but the types of practices they do, will make anyone unfamiliar with middle eastern christian practices gasp. ive learned so much from all of you that i myself have taught many people about guns, changed their minds, educated them, taught people all about the history, function, and safe handling of firearms. while in the military i went in as one MOS but i was treated more as a weapons repair. always qualified expert. when i went overseas, some bad things happened. and i realized how some of you all ended up so grizzled and crochity. ive joined the club myself haha. i wanted to thank you all personally for teaching me everything you did, there is very very few of you that i hold any animosity for. and those of you that i do, ill be sure to unblock. maybe we can all catch back up on the firing line sometime? the forum. not real life. my username on there is hammer_jockey_91 

    now, for the reveal. im sure not many will be shocked. but search almost any question involving the nagant revolver and what comes up will probably be me. ill continue in an update

    What are the dangers of using 5 year old aluminum cased ammo?

    Recently became a gun owner again after purchasing a G19 offline (nowhere to be found during covid locally) and bought all the necessary accessories BUT I'm kinda lacking in the ammo department. I'd say after my first 100 round range trip I'm gonna be down to only having my 4 mags full and no spare anything. 

    I did however have the foresight to keep all the ammo from my previous guns I've bought and sold over the years AND they've all been 9mm so all the ammo can be fed through my new gun. The issue is some of the ammo is upwards of 5 years old at this point (all carry ammo I've spent every range round I've ever had) and hasnt been stored ideally. But none of the rounds have rust on them and they're all good brands, Hornady, Barnaby, Federal Etc. and all primers look good to go I've scraped up around 60 rounds looking in my car and around my house. So the question is should I give them a good dust off and keep em to the side or should I have a good day at the range with em and just call it a day.

    OR the horrible third option. Are there hidden dangers I should know about? When I started keeping em I woulda shot em without thought but now that in wiser I'm a little skeptical.  Would love to know if I have to re buy any of these rounds which have all skyrocketed since lockdown and beyond.

    P.S. RIP Yahoo Answers I've been coming here for years sad to see this might be one of my last questions

    Will you hunt with me in spirit?

    It has been a long time since I came to Yahoo Answers, but when I heard it was closing down soon, I had to come say good-bye to the forum where I spent the most time, Hunting. I remember some of you. Don't know if you remember me or not, but I remember some of you. The recent years have been difficult for me. The last decade saw my job restructured out of existence during the Great Recession, then while I was starting up a business I was diagnosed with cancer, which I battled for several years. Though I am now in remission, both the disease and the treatment took a lot out of me that I may never get back. It's been years now since I was able to do the kind of week-long deer camp I thought of as "normal." I'm still rebuilding my strength in hopes of being able to pull a high enough draw weight to bowhunt this fall. We shall see! Come with me in spirit if you like, and I will send my spirit to the field with you, too.

    Will the assault rifle ban include hunting rifles?

    Favourite answer:

    what they consider a assault rifle and what many americans own is much different. may look the same but may not have same functions. assault weapons are automatic. most of what american citizens buy is semi auto. some have no bayonet stud. shucks, some bolt action rifles are more powerful in the wrong hands than the ar's people own. and ar doesnt stand for assault rilfe, it was for armalite 15 the father of this line.

    For a gun to be "in battery", the breech must be closed and locked.  Must the hammer also be cokked?

    Favourite answer:

    Yes, you have defined "in battery". Just like baseball...just because the batter is in the box doesn`t mean the pitcher is on the mound.

    (or has to be)

    CTM is correct.

     As far the word that YA censors...just use zero instead of o. That has always worked for me. There`s absolutely no reason for "c0cked" to be censored if used in the correct term.

    Light primer strike 12 gauge?

    Hi everyone.

    I had a light primer strike problem with a 12 gauge shotgun. It is a reputable Turkish manufacturer Derya, 14 inch barrel pump action shotgun. At the range we tried two different types of ammunition and it had the same problem of light primer strikes with both. If I put a shell in the chamber by hand directly, it fires every single time. The problem was when I was loading from the magazine through pump action. It would simply not fire. The gun is clean. When I came back I did a pencil test, put a thick pencil in the barrel, held the gun vertically and pulled the trigger. The firing pin threw the pencil all the way out. What else could be the problem? It fires when loaded directly in the chamber so hammer spring and pin are not an issue.

    Beretta 92a1 cycling issues?

    I bought a beretta 92a1 back in February brand new and have only been able to put about 150 rounds down range on it. Since owning it, factory rounds will cycle through the gun perfectly fine, but the slide won't lock back on the final bullet. 

    On reloads, the gun will either stovepipe or fail to eject every single round. 

    What does this sound like to you guys? The reloads are the same load as the factory I fire. Even tried a slightly hotter load and it didn't help. Is it because the spring is so new? is the recoil spring too heavy? Do I need to cycle more rounds to break in the gun? Everything is factory and I'm not sure what's happening.
