Gas Checks
« on: August 09, 2021, 06:17:31 PM »
Gentlemen,  This is probably a stupid question, but why are gas checks out of stock everywhere?  Is there a shortage of aluminum and copper?

Folks are hoarding. Every reloading component you can think of. I think it's starting to ease up, at least I'm starting to see powder on shelves at the local outfits.  Picked up some Red Dot this weekend.

I wonder if there is a YouTube video out there on how to make your own aluminum gas checks from beer cans.  Some how, I see a twisted and convoluted justification for drinking and shooting...just not at the same time.

I believe there's a tool made for that, but, it's probably out of stock, no backorder. Like about anything else related to reloading.

I know there used to be, looked like a lot of work to me.

Somewhere in someone's Mommies basement it a bunch of gas checks, toilet paper, 22 Long Rifles and what ever else they horded they didn't need, likely Beanie Babies and Cabbage Patch Dolls also.   Myself it's a reasonable amount of coffee, of several types maybe 10-12 pounds in 1/4 pound vacuum sealed bags.   In ahouse with one coffee drinker that makes it 1 cup at a time it will keep me going, probably buy a couple more pounds on Friday.
