Japan has things very similar... I used one once. It was warm and pleasing, believe it or not. Who DOESN'T like having their booty washed?

I wasn't able to do the following because I didn't think of it and didn't have the foresight when I started shooting, but: when this thing ends, I'm going to start buying all my reloading components in bulk, every time I can find a good deal. I reload for almost every caliber I shoot, and plan to continue that in the future if possible, so buying an extra box or two of ammo from Walmart when I see it isn't necessarily needed for me. The reloading components is crucial, though.

I've already started on a small scale. I was able to buy 2 lbs of Bullseye (limit one lb per customer) recently. I know one lb would be enough to get me thru the end of the year, but I decided to buy two because they had plenty on the shelf (I bought one lb, my wife bought another), and I want to start stocking up on supplies.

Is this enough? Obviously not. But it's a modest start, especially when it's hard to find anything at all. I will continue doing this, in smallish quantities.

While I whole heartedly believe in capitalism and the free market, I also believe in helping out my fellow shooters when I can, so I won't ever completely drain a store's inventory (unless its the very last of what's need and it's a good deal - someone left that box for me, in a manner of thinking). I will leave a bit for someone else if its feasible.
I've found most the big bulk buyers are reselling. That's another animal to me. I usually only get a box or so when I see it out. and build slowly. The resellers are no better and maybe even worse than the companies gouging customers. Many of the resellers are self professed gun people. I think doing anything that hurts gun people means you really are not a gun person. We should support each other as best we can. Not try to stick it to each other at any opportunity. I did sell some ammo during the crazy but only for what I paid forit and maybe a dollar or two for gas if I had to take it to them. But that was just for friends.
The crazy is starting to subside a little and I hope the gougers get stuck with tons and have to sell at a loss. I know I'll be looking for a few of those 2K AR rifles to sell around 700 pretty soon.

I always had a few boxes of each caliber i owned on hand. Now I will always keep 400-500 round of each caliber in stock.

Uhhh, for me, the future may be here. My buddy called all excited this afternoon. "How about 5.56 at 28 CENTS a round?", he says. WHAT? Catch; remanufactured ammo. I will be going there tomorrow to confirm and check out, but apparently, this guy has a new gun shop, and is NRA certified, or something.
Now, ordinarily, I would not consider reman ammo, but times dictate I think about this. Are there any guidelines/licenses, etc. for people making this stuff? Anything I should look for? He also buys back brass, or takes your brass and loads for a discount. I'm glad I saved a huge pile of brass a couple years ago....

Also available are 9mm & 40 SW. Not sure about the pricing on those.

Frankly i am jealous i cant find anyone by me who will do that! I have never had trouble with re-man ammo however. If its bugs you, before you buy check out the brass and the seat of the round for quality. If you want to go further look up how much powder should be loaded into them by a new manufacturer and ask him what he puts in his to compare for safety. Otherwise id be on it!
