local gun stores
Local gun stores are in a bind. Limit ammo sales so most people get some ammo and keep some on hand to sell with firearms. This upsets some people and they get angry.
Sell ammunition at market clearing prices that match up ammo cost with demand. As prices rise, demand falls.
This causes customers to ***** about being ripped off and vowing never to buy at that store again.
I am all for the free market. That is why my demand for store bought ammo will be zero until at least May. I think others should also reduce demand and end the panic.
The free market goes up, but it also goes down.
