So I'm guessing he broke even on it. But he had it priced right, he also builds and sells AR's he was selling them 3mos ago for $775. he is now getting $999. only because of how much all the parts have gone up, so I think he is being pretty fair. By the way he had about 2000 rds of 22lr today first he's had in a couple of months. And they weren't $110 a brick. Also bought 1lb of H1000, all he had $25.00 same thing I paid for it in Sep. Now if I could just find some 215 berger hybrids I might actually get to shoot that 300.
Sounds like you have a very fine place to do business!
I understand if a gun shop owner cannot get his products as cheap as he did in the past and so he is forced to pass that on to the buyer . I am all for a man making a profitt .
I have a guy at work that has bought up firearms and he has never sold guns for a living but he goes out and buys 2 DPMS AR-15's and is trying to get $1600 each . He hasnt sold em yet . I wish I could find a shop like you have in your home town . If i was treated like you are being treated then if things did go up I wouldnt mind paying a higher price to try and help that individual stay in business.
I hope it does get back to normal someday.
