Sounds like that was published by a Democrat.

I could be persuaded when it comes to necessities but the rest is the free market at work.

Apparently Yes Sir here, that's just referred to as "capitalism"!

I donít see why Iíd be investing in anything thatís so popular anytime of the year and everyone should have it, then sell it for what I paid for it to others that did not prepare. LOL Family and friends sure I would but they would get called a few names first. whistle

This is not the first shortage in recent years and they still did not come up with a solid plan by now?


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

There's a line for me between capitalism and taking advantage of people or situations to make unfair profits. Is it against the law probably not. Just because you can it doesn't always mean you should. I'm pretty sure most wouldn't like our wives or kids being taking advantage of under the blanket of capitalism. For me there are things that are legal but morally I just won't do. My view from the cheap seats. grin

Jerry, do you suppose some will learn this time around?

I had to learn it the last time and even this time got me off guard on a few things. I started shooting a new caliber last fall for coyotes and almost ran short. I am in the process of getting a new barrel built. If an when this straightens out it'll never happen again.

Well until I get a new caliber again lol.

I will say for me buying pre-shortage and selling to people that are wanting to stock up during a shortage for a profit is different than say being in Walmart and seeing some ammo on the shelf and buying it to just triple your $ a few miles down the road to a guy that's going to stick to someone, knowing there is probably a good chance someone that is going to be in need of it coming behind you and it not going to be available to them at a reasonable price. Maybe my moral views are just different than some. I'm stuck living life the way I see it . grin

What is the line between gouging and not gouging?

There was a time this winter early spring the price of corn had doubled from a year ago. Was that gouging?\\\\

Oil was negative a year ago is 70 a barrel gouging?

Silver in April of 2020 was 12 bucks an ounce today it's 25, gouging.

I suppose it depends on whose ox is getting gored as teh saying goes.

Use your own compass because I doubt yours and mine will line up and it doesn't both me. I'll share my point of view and u can have yours. I spoke my view on a specific situation and you what to argue using generalities. You disagree with me views just share were I got it wrong.

Law Dog I either wasnt clear or u miss read my posts. I'll clear it up... I've never sold ammo for a profit that I know of.

I was trying to compare your situation with the one I originally commented on about the Walmart purchase

And I do worry about other people's ammo. I've sold some of mine to 4 different people that were in need and offered it to about 6 others who mentioned they were getting short. At my cost of course.


Your cost or profit Which is it Lol
I donít care just pulling your chain
Gueoi couldíve went to flea market IF I bought more than one box and made five times over my money
But then I would know I stuck it to someone
See problem you guys are forgetting is If pawn shop doesnít sell it who got gouged?

Think about that as you look down from your ivory tower !!!!

One last comment here several comment people ď need ď it and must pay more. No season in here now so 99.9% of 22 ammo used now is for plinking If you canít afford it or are using your money on things you NEED like food or housing then wait until it comes down or run upon some at Walmart for 18 bucks a box

Iím sure the guys behind me that bought ALL they were allowed didnít NEED it

Back in November I offered a guy 75 dollars for 1000 small rifle primers, he thought I was nuts but he sold them to me.

I paid 60 percent more for an AR lower this spring than I would have 18 months ago.

Funny how I didn't feel like I was being "gouged"
