When Water Is a Primary Component of Ammunition

The recent sup­pli­er short­ages on a vari­ety of ammu­ni­tion has many gun afi­ciona­dos a bit upset. Tar­get prac­tice, hunt­ing, and even self defense are a bit more dif­fi­cult when your on-hand ammu­ni­tion con­sists of your gun itself, which can be thrown at the target/beast/assailant. And sure it can be argued that one clip of ammu­ni­tion is more than enough self defense for the major­i­ty of the pop­u­lace’s day to day lives, a lit­tle more ammo could­n’t hurt. Espe­cial­ly this ammo:

Ammo, on Ice
Ammo, on Ice

If the tray folds closed… How exact­ly does one get the nice, round bul­lets shown in the image? Does one side have to be frozen first? I also fore­see these things melt­ing rather quick­ly due to their thin nature. I have a LEGO ice tray which holds rather small ice cubes, and they melt fair­ly rapid­ly in a drink.

Still, hand a guest a glass full of bul­let shaped ice cubes, and you’ve got your­self a con­ver­sa­tion starter. Get a cou­ple of good con­ver­sa­tions out of it, and that’d be worth the ~$10 price tag.

    Those are some crazy-look­ing bul­lets. Not sure they would do much more than break apart in the gun itself…

    Homey, first a cor­rec­tion. Only thugs refer to mag­a­zines as clips…

    Despite the cur­rent short­ages if you’re patient enough you will find decent prices on ammu­ni­tion. Mid­way USA and The Armory are my favorite. Buy ammo if you can’t afford gold, it may come in handy on day…

    I’ve not heard many peo­ple com­plain about the price of ammu­ni­tion, just its avail­abil­i­ty. And if that one-off com­ment made by Oba­ma in a time long for­got­ten about some sort of 500% tax on ammu­ni­tion turns out to be true… well, by gol­ly… uh… Not real­ly sure where I’m going with this… 

    There was a pic­ture of me on Face­book with my hat cocked to the side flash­ing some made up gang signs that my wife took of me when I appar­ent­ly was high on the caf­feine. I was going to end this com­ment with that.

    The pic seems to have con­ve­nient­ly disappeared.

    Oh, drat.

    Let us know if you find that picture.

    Prices have gone up, too, espe­cial­ly for ammo used by the mil­i­tary like .223 cal.

    The exor­bi­tant ammo tax approach has been in the anti gun­ner’s play­book for a few decades and for­tu­nate­ly they haven’t had the sup­port for a fed­er­al man­date. I am not sure where this will go now that we’ve achieved one-par­ty rule nir­vana and the boy king just appoints czars at will. An option would be to reload your own, but I am sure the tax will affect raw mate­ri­als as much as the fin­ished product.
