Who is F***ING WHOM?
 
MY RANT FOR TODAY!!!!

I went to my local gunshop to get some ammo for plinking... I bought 3 boxes of .22 Magnums, no big deal, $10.50 per box.

But then I see a price tag on the box.... $6.75 WHAT??? I just paid $10.50 per box! These sons of bitches saw an opportinity to mark up "older" ammo to a new price and they gouged me, and everyone else that buys this crap. I am so effing mad that these mother ****** are taking advantage of people by marking up OLD inventory so thay can make a fortune off of it.

These bastiges will never see another dime from me.

You should have heard the lies he was laying on me when I showed him the price on the box... He offered to give back the difference, but I told him "no thanks, you can't un-screw someone". For that lousy $11.25 he gouged me, he lost about $20,000 a year in my guns & ammo purchases. What a Stupid Mo Fo...

I feel for you, Mark. That post was a little heavy for the open forum, but I do feel for you. I would have taken back the difference and then scratched them off my list of places to go. Go plink and feel better. ;)

More often than not that little bit that they get over for costs them big money in the long run.

Express your displeasure by spending your money elsewhere and tell every one you know about it as well.

That is like the guys on Gun Broker selling $176 worth of primers for $475 a pop. Fukkin dirt bags every last one of them.

Every time I bought a new gun I would stop buy to show the guys and ask how much from them? Then tell them Oh I got it at so and so for $200 cheaper oh well.

When we get back on track I am buying nothing less that 15,000 primers. 5,000 CCI BR-2, BR-4 and large pistol primers. That way I am good to go for a while.

That sucks. But your reaction sounds like capitalism in action. Screw your customers and you'll get screwed a hundredfold and ultimately go out of business.

Exactly, bkt. Until the guy down the street asks a fair price for the same and he makes it because he does not screw his customers. There are bad business persons and there are good business persons. In that scenario, the business persons are allowed to be individuals and run their business as they see fit. Socialism has no room for individuals.

That's just not right. Seems like fellow 2nd ammendment advocates should stick together, not stick it to eachother.

There are several firearms on gunbroker for outrages prices. One seller has xdm 9mm for $699!!! Then you pay the transfer fees!!

Local gunshop has them for $616, another for $629.

Pathetic... :mad:

Jokes gonna be on them soon.

So much anti-anti-gun sentiment going around that the market in a few months is gonna be overflowing with AR-15s and AKs and all kinds of stuff.

I didn't mean to go ballistic here, but I came home so pissed off that I had to let some steam go. I have bought lots of guns and ammo from this shop and I "thought" we were friends and he was a fair & honest person... WRONG on all accounts. Profiteering is his only endevor.

I got to tell you, the economy isn't bad for gun shop owners. This guy lives in a 8,000 sq. ft. luxury home in one of the most up-scale areas in town. And I know he laughs his ass off every time someone buys ammo from him...

RANT=off

No merchant is ever your friend. He's in business to make money and the more he makes the happier he is. Do you get a raise every time your employer raises his prices? Of course not. Businessmen make money, that's what they do. I make them money, that's what I do. If I want to change the cycle I need to become a businessman. C'est la vie.
