    Nasty marketing??? You can't even get a oil pan gasket at your local speed shop. This is not a marketing ploy it's a fact check on what lies ahead.

    Flat rate shipping to Canada is 25.00USD on all accessory and ammunition orders regardless of quantities ordered. Firearms are exported to Canada at a flat rate of 25.00USD per firearm.

    This will become more and more of an issue come fall for the general public for all sorts of goods for similar reasons.....Still the rush for arms makes sense.....Also essentially destroys the anti-gun group argument, when it counts and people are concerned about their safety they want firearms.


    enjoy the summer......this FALL will be "Something"

    - the media markets its "Second Wave"
    - low harvest yields lead to price spikes for food
    - funding for financial supports stop at the end of August....Parliament returns Sept 21st......
    - How far can people stretch themselves? in a Government controlled economy
    - Will there be uprising in the USA? Will China then Occupy Taiwan
    or
    - Will there be an uprising in China via military coup, result Chaos and global supply shortage of goods
    or
    - Will the markets collapse leading to the launch of a National Digital Currency
    or
    - Will the Lizard people rise up from cracks in the earth after global earth quakes and enslave the population

    Anything could happen.

    This is a site with a lot of right wing conservatives and they tend to be sceptical, so don’t worry. Those who have bought extra ammo, bought those items they were waiting to buy, will not be sad about it: if everything came back to normal tomorrow they still have ammo to shoot and something to shoot it with. I know I decided to try and get ahold of the last two items on the “wish list” early because of this...

    I see it at work. I am just sitting down for lunch while posting this after a teleconference meeting. I wish my suppliers were as predictable as you IRUNGUNS!!! I had to state in the meeting that supplies of custom equipment were now 12 weeks late and that my staff have progressed everything we can but the job is stalled until it comes... whenever: wholesaler/importer is getting no answers from factory. I am scrambling to keep from lying off half the crew.

    So, the Summary: if IRUNGUNS is selling out in the USA and can’t bring stuff to Canada, if you end up with no ammo, than that’s on you...

    Try finding some exercise equipment too. It's non-existent!

    Couldn't have said it better. We also have a construction retail business near Edmonton and our supply chain is shot. We can't keep anything in stock and can't get anything from anyone!

    It’s just like the business I’m in. All the air conditioner units are sold out and everyone is panicking. Even parts are getting scarce. The one thing I’ll give my industry is that the prices haven’t gone up (yet)

    Site sponsor Bullesye North Remington 20 ga target loads long gone. Challenger target 20 ga was 6.99 if you bought 10, now itís $10/box with 24 boxes in stock, used to be hundreds in stock. Also all Federal 22 LR gone and CCI up in price. I could go on but this is generally what you see. A trip to Sail in Ottawa 2 weeks ago showed very few cases Of 20 or 12 Challenger target loads. The cases used to be stacked well over waist high, you could see plenty of pallet, not usually visible!
