Dispatch 5: Return to America: Guns & Ammo in Vancouver, Washington

IMG 2557

Quick update:

Visited a gun-store yesterday. There were density limits so we waited in a line of three people outside while others shopped. While we waited, this apparent Marine surplus vehicle arrived. I do not know the specific nomenclature. There are endless types and always changing. I did not ride in this type in Iraq or Afghanistan.

The gun store is called Sporting Systems. Very nice store and the Navy man who helped me seemed very knowledgeable. Store is well stocked including ammo.

A difference between Sporting Systems and Cabela’s appears to be that Cabela’s did not adjust prices to demand, and so Cabela’s shelves are picked over. Meanwhile, Sporting Systems is selling a Benelli 3 Gun for $2,689.00, which seems steep for this shotgun. But they do have it in stock. I asked about 3” Magnum 00 and the man said they have plenty. Slugs, too. Cabela’s had none of the above.

It’s America. My guess is there is zero shortage of much if you have money. Other than common sense governance. That’s something money cannot buy, and you don’t need money to have it.
