Container ships



Log in to see fewer ads
I wonder if we are anxiously awaiting ammo from Eley, Lapua, and others is sitting on the container ships waiting to be unloaded ...... slowly souring and degrading in an uncontrolled environment?

We may be getting some crappy ammo for a while whenever they decide to unload the containers ....

Not thinking the fastest point between Europe and America is the port of Los Angeles..... but hey in today's world.... nothing makes sense.

Guessing the developed world's decision to furlough large portions of labor for better parts of 18 moths might have more to do with the delays. That and the harsh reality of the slow movement of raw materials. We may be in for a bit of a wait. The ol tinfoil hat guys ranting and raving about the fragility of the supply chain.... appear to be right.

Have to be late 80s maybe even 90s to remember nationwide shortages, but back then grandad made every shot count and killed very little paper. Might be time to take a page out of the book for a little while.

I doubt that it's going to degrade much at all, even if it were to sit in a container for a year. It's more like Spam than milk.

I've been shooting my stash of Wolf MT I bought 10+ years ago that's been sitting in non-temperature controlled garages. Shoots like new.

Ya know, this got me thinking. What if : all those containers arent full of tvs, and toys, but something more nefarious. And all of them parked over one of the biggest geological faults on the planet. Outside of one of the biggest cities in America and a coast line soaked with oil. And then a sst missile just happens to accidentally ignite the whole mess. What if?

The late wife loved the Christmas in July movie marathons on Hallmark.

... or maybe just a bunch of stowaways who didn't expect the trip to last more than a few days. Wouldn't want to be there when that container gets opened.

The possible premise of a very bad horror movie

Ok al, I got it figured out why you change your avatar. Your flirting with Sophia aren’t you.
