Angry STOP BUYING !!

Ok people, can we have a quick refresher on capitalism...you know, SUPPLY and DEMAND?! Can we please realize that WE are our own worst enemies in this situation... There is absolutely NO reason there should be no ammo available anywhere. There is absolutely NO reason people should be paying 2, 3, 5, 10 times the normal market rate for anything. Get a friggin' grip and stop it. Yes, I know there are some folks that go through a lot of ammo playing 3 gun and clay sports..... Guess what, there are no more of those people now than there were a year ago. This is being driven by those who are scared their 500 or 1000 (or many times more) rounds aren't enough and keep buying buying buying. The noobs aren't driving this...they don't care enough to keep up with it after they've gotten a few boxes to collect dust in their drawer. Keep complaining about availability and pricing, then look in the mirror. Stop buying guns and ammo for 6 months and see what magically happens.... PLEASE STOP THE MADNESS so we won't all suffer permanent 50%-100% price increases across the board forever!. The single easiest thing we all can do to help ourselves....tell a friend. PSA rant over.

You have the option of not buying, others have the option TO buy. if you're short it's your own fault, you had 4 years to buy.

Respect the thought, but...



Telling demand to go away does not make it go away.

5 million new gun owners in 2020. Lets say they each just buy a hundred rounds.

Demand on ammunition is 5,000,000 x 100 that means demand went up by 500,000,000.

I gotta buy all the ammo before the liberals do though!. Come on man, I can't do this by myself!

Thanks Capt Obvious. I've been exercising my option of not buying since this started because I'm not desperate enough to pay scalper prices, and I'm just fine thank you. The world is not ending. But hey, if you like paying jacked up prices, then keep it up. If it were any other commodity, I doubt you'd be so glib about it. I'm just tired of watching hysteria driven by those who can't think much beyond their own noses, and simply pointing out that instead of crying about it, and making it worse for the collective....it's easily correctable with a little common sense.
