I’m stocking up on toilet paper before winter hits.
This will leave only fools paying high prices. If we all stop then the price will come back down once inventories pile up. Please stop all ammunition purchasing. Please pass this along to all friends. Once it takes hold even the shooting sports will force pricing back down since there will be no competitive shooting and target shooting. Every decision is always based on follow the money.
I just had this conversation, or should I say, he had it with me. I have no idea how many 1000 rounds he has purchased in the last months and still going 2 to 4 boxes at a time. He has no plans of stopping.Problem is this election is a roll of the dice, Trump wins and we can all sit back and wait for the prices to drop, Biden wins and it only gets worse more hoarding higher taxes on ammo more gun control laws.etc. Betting on good times ahead is just that a bet, I prefer to be prepared either way.
I’d wager to say your refraining from purchasing ammo for a decade, would not inhibit your normal shooting habit and still leave you a comfortable supply. You sir, are the Debeers of ammo. If you released a tenth of your stash, ammo prices would be in the negative range like oil was earlier this year. :whistling:I haven’t bought any in months
Supply and demand must not be taught anymore. When a void exists something will fill it. If stuff is made in China then someone will create it here. As it should be. The current craze will go away. Trump will win and many will feel pretty dumb when it settles. Have faith folks.
Just about the only ammo I’ve bought in the last couple years has been a box or two to test fire a new purchase, the last time being way before all this hit. I did buy some 9mm & M193 when they were at their lowest prices last year (@ $170 & $250).I picked up a couple of new calibers just before this crap started so I have had to buy as I can or have two worthless new guns.
I agree.You're assuming ammunition supply WILL return to the status quo. There's a not insignificant chance this will be the new normal for many years.
Sorry dude. I've acquired plenty over the past ten years, but I'll keep buying.
Good luck, all.
