Panics are made for profiteers.
As long as the hoarding continues so will the high prices. Right now, if you buy more than you shoot, you are buying into the problem and paying dearly for the privilege. I have put on an eye-patch and have been selling ammo, and loving it. Anybody need a $100.00 brick? $50.00 9mm? $75.00 .45 ACP? Sorry, all sold out of 7.62 x 39.(I cleaned up on that stuff ) If you are not selling now, you will regret it later.
This was all based on Obama coming for your guns. He hasn't been to my house yet. Martial law that was predicted in Jan., for Feb. hasn't happened, and is only on the horizon in LaLa land. Assault ban is DOA except in the annals of the NRA. (excepting, of course, if you live in a state of fruits and nuts) I have yet to see a blue helmet; whats with that? No economic collapse, the stock market is booming, according to Republican philosophy, the rest of us will benefit from the trickle-down. Or is it being trickled on? All of the posturing in the congress is going to end with a whimper, not a bang. No American revolution, no second civil war, unless of course, you are a member of the Aryan Brotherhood; if so, good luck with that.
About the worst thing to happen in the past few months is the self-inflicted wound of the ammo shortage.
I know it hurts, but the Apocalypse is just not here. Embrace it, roll with it, stop the freaking hoarding, and everyone can live happily ever after.
Did I mention , "self inflicted wound?" oh yea, I did.
