WE are driving prices up on ourf*****g selves..... If you need something and have to have it, buy it. If you are panicking and following the rest of the lemmings over the cliff,, buying s**t just to stock pile like its never going to be sold again ( "assault " weapons excluded ) Then we are perpetuating the retarded cycle.
I agree man. I sold my Mini at market value (even a little below based on the current Gunbroker prices). But I think going out and buying every single AR you can find at rock-bottom Walmart prices and then flipping them for 3-5x the price, is messed up. I also think that people buying ammo they don't need is ridiculous as well.
I ran into a guy at Walmart the other night. I was walking over to the ammo cabinet to see if they had anything in stock and he was looking at something else nearby. I made a comment about the lack of ammo and he said something along the lines of, "Yeah, I've been buying up every bit I can find. Got a guy checking the back right now to see if there's anything available, but it's not lookin' good. Hell, I've been buying up stuff I don't even need. I figure it'll be worth more than gold here in a few months. Got thousands and thousands of rounds stocked up ready to sell to the highest bidder." I just walked away.
Dude was a jerk. I'm there trying to get some cheap plinking ammo and that jack wagon was trying to buy up everything that was left to make a profit. I hope this AWB falls through and he loses his ass on all that ammo he's been stocking up.
A lot of people are doing that with PMAGs, etc. It's unreal that "gun enthusiasts" would be trying to screw other people. Yeah... I know it's a free market and what not, but screwing people just for the sake of screwing people is wrong and I can't wait to watch all these people have to eat their hats for doing it.
They're causing the problem.
