The only person with their head in the sand are those screaming "hoarders". 5-10k primers is hoarding? You just dont shoot much. So you buy 1k at a time because that is all you shoot a year. I will bet ypu dont buy TP one roll at a time or if you do, you are even more ill prepared than I thought. One would think 2012-13 would have opened every reloaders eyes but apparently some are slow learners.I donmt give a damn, what anyone says, Yes, it is a good thing to be prepaired! BUt everytime one of these thread come up, You always get one or more that dont want to blame hoarding, I call BS!
Yes horading is a part of it too, And anyone thast says not has his head in the sand. Every reloader Im know would love to be sitting on 10 mto 20k primers right now, NUt many of us ,JUst dont have the funds to sit and watch the net 24/7 and buy buy as soon as we see primers come avalible, or have to work a jopb, and dont have the time to go by every LGS between work and home everyday.
When I was inot shooting GSSF 7 to 8 matches a year, and Steel challenge and other matches,Back when I was single, I too would be found sitting on 10k primers, 10 to 15lbs powder!
And I still love to load and shoot ,just not as much as I was shooting competition! But ,I like most have to prioritize my money each month.
I guess everyone on here that talks about finding 5000 primers and then brags about having 10k at home well, more power to you,whoever you are.
You also have to include all the new reloaders that camew about in the last few months, everyone says supply and demand, yes thats part of it, But everytime I go to the LGS Academy, Sportsmans warehouse, PSA , I see lines of people, buying guns, ammo if they can find it,hell you can even find a 9mm ammo storage box at sportsmans, People are uncertian, about the coming election and they are panic buying as much as they can!
SO you say supply and demand, yes the demand is there ,But the supply is lacking!
Now if it comes down to it ,I can still shoot as much as I like, I have a good supply of percussion caps, wads,powder and lead for my Ruger Old army cap and ball revolver
So dont say that hoarding isnt part of it, if you think that then Ive got oceanfront property in S,Dakota I want to sell you!
PS now let the ranting begin,I know its coming,But I dont give a Rats Ass,because Im tired of hearing all the BS
If everyone is that scared of Biden then just vote and keep him out of the Whitehouse !!!
