Biden wasn't the President 12 months ago and it's not Democrats that keeping overpaying themselves into a false shortage and perpetual price hikes on ammo.Yep, when the Democratic run cities let people burn their cities down 12 months ago... Well I think sh!t started flying off the shelf and I suppose that was Trumps fault... Go Biden...
Biden wasn't the President 12 months ago and it's not Democrats that keeping overpaying themselves into a false shortage and perpetual price hikes on ammo.
But I'm sure everybody that lines up at Sportsman's Warehouse every day to pay top dollar for any ammo that comes in on the truck has got it all figured out... just as long as they can blame somebody else for their problems.
If people would quit hoarding and living in fear of the bogeyman, this "shortage" would solve itself. As it sits, it's a circular fitting squad and the only people getting harmed are the people who keep lining up to pull the trigger while pointing the price gun at themselves.
Here's a secret. DW, , me, Bess, all raised our prices when Trump was president. Why? Because we could. The market was good, there was demand. Folks would pay it. Expecting us to keep our prices low, in support of affordable housing, we never would have done.
However. We did expand. Guys got hired, equipment bought, etc.
With the new admin I do think there is a real hesitancy to expand, even as the gun ownership, would suggest the market to do so
I hope the manufacturers are making a killing. Hope they buy new trucks, build new houses, buy new sxs. I want very strong ammo companies, mainly because I shoot guns
Why's the barrel pointed at me? Tikka made a statement that was spot on, for checkmate. Then the pigeon knocked all the chess pieces over, chit on the board and strutted around like he won. Seems like plenty of people found it easy to follow. Guess what, I've been busy as f'k this year, and have only bought about a dozen boxes of ammo the past 12 months, for newly purchased calibers. I'm not waiting for trucks to come in as I'm too f'n busy, and I bought it cheap and stacked it deep the last time a dumb ass democrat was in power. I've responded to elk's other post on availability for guys on this site caught short when this started. I hope everybody is snappin necks and cashin checks, no matter whose in the Whitehouse, which is what I'm always hoping for. Again, why am I being lectured to? I can only assume it's because my previous post was right on the money!
Background checks for gun purchases are hitting an all-time high this year, and half of those are coming from first-time gun buyers.outsider.com
Grizzy I am not at the Sportsman door waiting on the ammo coming in to buy at unreasonable prices. As for the bogeyman, sometimes he is real.
I saw the shortage that happen under Obama and decided not to get caught short again. so I started stockpiling when ammo was plentiful and priced low compared to today's unreasonable prices.
As for the bogeyman, he is present in CA. within a certain political party. Most of the ammo you see in the below photos were purchased online several months before the new CA. law went into effect that stopped us from buying online at cheaper prices. You better hope that Biden or the new ATF director does not make that law nation wide on buying online.

Good work grandma...Nope several grandsons are going to help me move that pile of ammo. They also help to shoot it up. New home will not have a pistol range like I have here and that will help save on ammo cost when the grandkids come over.
Will have to drive out to the farm house where we have both a pistol and rifle range out to 400 yards.
