My advice is never order ammo online.
Of course, my advice is to always pay cash for it too.
Otherwise, always a paper trail of who's buying what.
I've never bought a single round of ammo that has a trail.
Simply because, when the time comes where they want to take all our guns, that metadata is all there, data-mined and ready to go. They'll know just what weapons you have based on the ammo, so no chance at even hiding away a spare (unless multiples that shoot the same type...). I don't think the government is out to get us...but I do think they are out to completely disarm us, eventually.
Generally something else brings in the ATF stock piling ammo isn't illegal in most states, I've seen many 'so-called' survivalist belong to questionable groups preaching the overthrow of the government then add ammo stock piling is going to grab the attention of someone, belonging to a survival group is one thing but when that group is or becomes militant then the gloves are off. The whole point to being a survivalist is survival not suicide. For the young ones that may read theses post, survival is an art to be practiced, think Bushcraft/Bushman NOT combat training!!Yes I remember reading in a US survival mag and seeing it on TV of a couple of preppers who had been stockpiling ammo and bulk buying who because of either poor opsec or accident caught the attention of I think it was your ATF ?? and they got raided and not only lost all the gear but were charged with numerous felonies.
Well yeah, already in there then. Me, I just buy any firearms from private sellers for cash. I don't have anything crazy, standard home defense stuff, but then I'm also cheap too, hehe... (or frugal if you're being nice).I'm not overly concerned regarding a paper trail, purchasing a new firearm already gives them access to ones name whether cash is used or not
......................As they say in the 9TH ward......... " true dat "........................ I love being........ ALREADY.Nothing illicit, just that when you see the level of gun control or banning some of our politicians espouse, and what's already been passed, we aren't far from them being banned outright. So, I'd rather be already set, is all.
