This makes sense to me. I personally know of two individuals who own mostly hunting long rifles and a couple .22LR revolver pistols who have been buying up every kind of handgun ammunition as well as .223, .308, etc. that they get their hands on thinking it to be "Trading Stock" for a future bad time. This is a weekly ritual for them. Now, I'm not badmouthing them for their thoughts on this but, I feel this truly is the reason (in multitude across the nation) behind the ammo shortages and high prices.
