Re: Why the mad dash on reloading supplies?

" I saw only 4 Ar's in a shop out of over 75 they had the last time I was in. They have raised the price over $700, I think you could call that greed by any standard and seems to be the American way any more every where. I for one will remember this if I buy another gun."............................................. .............................................Can you blame him? If he sold at october market price scalpers would just clean him out anyway and most of those guns would be on auction at twice the price. If it aint the deal you want don't buy it but don't help the bureaucrats destroy you local supply network. Everyone running a business is trying to make money and if they may not be able to resupply right away, they need to make enough to carry them over if the market will bear it. Capitalism........It has it's ups and downs but it's benefits far outweigh it's inconveniences.

Yup , your 100% sidecarflip,
Everyone has got to get active. The NRA gives us better representation than our own Senators.

Re: Why the mad dash on reloading supplies?

Far as the price increases for the 'to be banned if legislation passes' firearms, while I don't like it, just like everyone else. I look at it as strictly business. No gun dealer, manufacturer or for that matter individual seller is in it to be charitable. It's always 'charge what the market will bear'. Thats business.

If you can't afford it, don't buy it. It distills down to supply and demand, just like gasoline prices and every other tangible and intangible commodity.

I almost passed out when at a local gun show 2 weeks ago, a guy offered me 1700 bucks unsolicited for an AK in the parking lot that I paid 300 bucks for 6 years ago. Did I say 'Thats too much, it's only worth 300 bucks" Of course I didn't. That would be ludricrious on my part. I took the 17 Franklins and gave him what he wanted. He was happy to get it and I was happy to receive it. I did donate one of the Franklins to the NRA btw.

Is it panic buying? Maybe. Is it the uncertainty of pending Socialist assualts on the Constitution, maybe, but the bottom line is, if individuals aren't willing to pay an inflated price, then the price goes down. Until that time, the pricing stays inflated. Thats how economics work.

Besides, factoring in inflation and the devaluing dollar, I really didn't get 17 Franklins. I really got my 300 bucks back......

Re: Why the mad dash on reloading supplies?

I don't want to sound like an azz, and I don't think I do, but this subject can be spun around till were all dizzy and blue in the face. The bottom line is greed and paranoia have caused the problems were having. I don't agree that it's ok for dealers to sell or price gouge AR's or assault looking weapons for double their normal price because of the possibility of banning them. There's plenty of AR manufactures in The USA....I'm sure they'd love to build more for their dealers. Shame on these people who are doing that! Maybe legislation needs to be enacted or passsed to stop or limit this type of business practice.

If the current argument to own these weapons is about our 2nd Amendment Rights. How are THE people supposed to afford these if greedy sales people are trying to get rich off the purposed ban on them. I don't get the ideology of it. Are THE people supposed to feel safe because the rich can defend us from the Gov't. Or is this really an everyone for themselves mentality?????? Because then the argument is pointless.

But then again what's with the big buying spree of these weapons. The American people didn't want or seem to need them before the mention of the ban and now they do.....odd?????? They obviously felt safe before the mention of the ban.

Is this really going to come down to only the people who can afford firearms and ammunition can have them?????....(Sounds like the Gov't will win if this is the truth).

Re: Why the mad dash on reloading supplies?

You are right we could go around and around but might be better off to agree to disagree and thats cool with me but I have to offer one caution. The threat of government action causes the fear that is inconveniently effecting you now and your proposed solution is government action to limit how much a privately owned item can be sold for. BAD IDEA.....Ok, now we can agree to disagree.
