Naaaaa, that was warm up plague. We need a good one.

They intended it to be a full blown, population reduction plague.

Same with their "vaccine". They just came up short and the vax is a slow killer.

But, they are fairly patient and keep trying. The "new" bird flu vax is mRna based and will be hard pushed come Sept.

But guys, didn't you watch the debate? Bidumb says we're in great shape.
As an old man who doesn't hunt, shoot or reload much anymore. I've been considering selling off the vast majority of 55 years worth of collections of guns, loading equipment and such. But knowing how much work it is to organize, take pictures and advertise. .after reading your comments, makes me wonder if it's worth the effort.
Call me……. I’ll take a look and let you know whether or not you need to sell them………………..to me. LOL

Yep, I work with all sorts of small businesses and their big ticket purchases have gone WAY down.
Yup, we are dead. June and July are generally slow because people are out on vacation, but I know of many businesses that are very slow as well that are generally busy this time of year.

I work for an O&G service company, we have a hiring freeze right now and T&E has to be approved. Travel for training has been nixed as well. We have been very slow for the last 2 months, and it's because O&G companies are laying down rigs. Rig count in the US is down to 581, and rigs in Oklahoma arre down to 44. In July 2018 when things were going well, there were 1050 rigs operating in the US and 140 in Oklahoma. The 2018 numbers are about half of what they were in 2014. If things don't turn around soon, O&G industry is going to have another big cut. My company had 5k layoffs globally back in February.
