Couldn’t agree more I can’t beleive what stuff is selling for on there and unfortunately because of it us guys just looking to keep shooting are getting shut off. I had to stop searching GB and armslist because the prices were making me angry. I wish I could see the light at the end of the tunnel but cannot yet.this is what it is all about, helping each other in these tough times.
please if you get a heads up only buy what you need and not to run to gunbroker or trying to help others becomes worthless
I feel the same about GB. However I may be forced to buy primers there, having no luck anywhere else and have zero now.
I would be more than happy to travel to NE Oklahoma, if you are willing to part with any small rifle primers. I would pay or trade if you need anything that I may have.I saw your message and my eyes wandered over to your location... that's funny... the wife and I were literally driving through your town last week. We spent two nights in a nice cabin on Beaver Lake. I could have stopped and sold you some primers!
After the whole Obama shortage, I swore I wouldn't let that happen to me again. Once the crisis ended, if I was in a gun store and they had .22's or primers for a good price, I bought extra. I started moving around boxes of .22's just a couple days ago and laughed... I bought more over the years than I realized. And I'm always buying a pound or two of extra powder when there is a good deal... hey, look there is a new kind... and then 50% of the time I never even get around to opening the can.
Anyway, I'm neither a hoarder nor a scalper... but I do have more of some stuff than I need right this minute. I'm not adverse to making some money... but I don't like to be attacked as some kind of evil person either. There are people out there with expensive guns that want to shoot them and paying 3x the former retail price for powder or primers is not a big deal. On the other hand, I have zero interest in trying to figure out hazmat shipping!
So the result is I'm sitting on stuff I don't need right now and that I would be happy to take a profit on to buy something else... but I can't figure out a way to do it that is legal, and not more work than it is worth! Seems to me that only sensible way is to find people that are reasonably local that are willing to meet in NE OK to exchange some product for green paper. Or silver!
Any helpful ideas are welcome....
