    250 rounds is not hoarding. Its a range trip.

    It's not my hobby anymore. Maybe I'll just try to trade it off for more 9mm.

    It's worth what it costs to replace it at today's prices. Maybe a little more if it is unavailable online or in stores.

    If it's not your hobby anymore, why would you trade for a different caliber??

    You can still get .45 ACP and GAP for $20 a box. Hell I know where I can get 9mm for $20 a box if I really need it but I won’t be buying much if any at that price.

    Online? Prices are insane. Most 10mm is cheaper than 9 right now. Some Gunbroker ads are reaching $1 a round for white box range trash now. It’s getting crazy and I think we’ve surpassed the 2013 panic prices at this point.

    I went to the gun show this weekend. People were nuts for ammo! There were some OK deals, there were some crappy deals. And there was a table with unlabled, unpriced reloads that just about gave me a heart attack when I asked for the price!

    I've got a great supply of 9mm. But I'm still not headed to the range any time soon. I am kicking myself for not bringing a case or two to try to sell. I could have gotten some good money for it. With COVID and all we've tapped our savings pretty hard. Heck, after the gun show I went through my house and found two more cases of 9mm I had forgotten that I purchased.

    I won't sell my rifle ammo, though. I'm not stacked anywhere near as deep, because I fired a good bit off throughout last year and never found the "deal" to stack it back up before all this happened.

    Related: I know some gun guys that have joked that they should let their local fire department know where their ammo is stored in their house.

    Yep, it's like finding money in the glove box or inside that suit jacket pocket that you forgot about.

    And you didn't donate it at the beginning of the pandemic?
