    That's what one store in town is doing. They have some less common calibers for sale, and a few boxes for every gun they have in stock. You must buy the gun to get the ammo.

    Don't get me wrong, I think you should have every right to do what you're doing. But I also think you should feel like a scumbag after doing it.

    The guy standing behind you in line, his only crime being he got there seconds later doesn't get to enjoy his weekend of shooting because you want to make a quick dishonest buck. You really don't see anything wrong with that?

    Take care.

    I don't get what people are complaining about. You can buy just about any ammo you want online right now

    Stockpiling is when you have more of something than most people. Hoarding is when other people suddenly want whatever it is you stockpiled.

    I wouldn't even take issue with it if he intended to keep everything he bought (even if it was EVERYTHING)...but to make a quick profit... meh whatever.

    This economy is seriously in the ****ter. I for one don't blame anyone for for doing what it takes to make a buck these days.

    < Victim AND victimizer in the ammo hoarding game.

    CF, I haz 180 gr HP in .308 for $2/round. :tongueout:

    This is not about communism vs capitalist, right vs left, whatever whatever. I'm not going to rise to your bait.

    This is about ethical vs unethical, what is right and what is wrong.

    Again, is that right? Yes it is perfectly within your rights to do so, but I don't for a second believe you don't see how this is poor behavior.

    People who buy firearms or ammo with the sole intent of flipping should be shot.
    If not done away with permanently, give them prison time. Flipping is nothing more than a straw purchase.


    I'm to the point of saying, close the private sell loophole and be done with it.

    Why? Please explain. You can't, can you?

    My feelings are irrelevant -it's just business. Obviously, you're feelings are hurt.

    Crime!? Seriously?

    Should have got there earlier.

    Ammo is available. How much do you want to pay?

    A dishonest buck? Explain how I'm being dishonest about anything. Anything. You can't, can you?

    Wrong with what? Buying something under market value then selling it at market value. Explain how firearms are any different than any other product or commodity. You can't, can you?

    Life is a comedy for those who think. It's tragedy for those who feel.

    Our moral compasses are polar opposites. Agree to disagree. It's all just food for thought. Take care brother.

    Moral compass!? Please.
    You can't/won't address anything I've asked you about why you think it's wrong, unethical, poor behavior, ect,. about buying and flipping. You can't even defend you own position.

    Life is a comedy for those who think. It's tragedy for those who feel.

    There is not set time/amount/price.... Its the grey area of "intent" IF you INTEND to buy it to resell. not good. If you decide to sell it later (because you didn't like it, it didn't fit your hand, the CEO of company said somethign you didn't like. (basicly for ANY REASON) selling it is legal (if other laws followed)
    Its even legal if you buy it "because you always wanted one" but know you will likely need $$$ and this will be first you get rid of.
    Read the 4473, ask yourself. Am I buying this for ME, or as gift for family? You are likely ok.
    I have cousin who wants me to buy a SCAR 18 if I see one. To sell it to him) That is NOT legal. So I won't do it. (I will call him, ask if I could put $50 for dealer to hold it till he gets there)
