    An observation from reselling ammo on gun broker I noticed that the UPC all started with the same 5 numbers. Rem, win, fed, FN, 5.7x28 or 12 gauge, 9mm 22LR.
    Pretty convenient for tracking purchases.
    That is all.

    UncleMorgan I eat vegetables. My friends are not vegetables.

    "They" are tracking everything, and your dossier is always at hand.

    Buy with cash. Sell for cash. Give no names. Ask no names.

    Wear a cheap wig and funny sunglasses--and shop far enough away that your friends won't laugh at you.

    If you do that then you're definitely being watched with extra scrutiny.

    LOL! Steampunk!
    Between all my permits, licenses, tax stamps, military record, bulk ammo buys, teaching creds, FCC call sign etc. All the alphabet agencies know who I am, where I am, how long I've been here, and I suppose what beer I like. I am embedded in the system. And I'm just a little worried about the next couple of months... years if things go bad.

    @madmax ... Exactly! Not to mention monitoring each and every computer keystroke made while you are online... The massive amounts of data collection would stagger the mind of most, I suspect.

    HA! Just this week the boss and I were talking about inverter generators, and we both had ads for them in our emails the same afternoon. Of course we both had our phones with us....

    Maybe we could start a pool to see who has the most "Follows" on the three letter agency antisocial media.

    I'm in.

    Like I've said, it's gonna be hard to explain why you are still buying ammo online for a gun that you claim to have sold years ago!:rolleyes:

    I had a clearance that itself was classified. And was on a travel restriction for years after I returned to the Light side.

    Oh yeah. I have a file alright.
