the ammunition shame thread! i imagine the most shamed will run from this thread like the plague! but....did you make any ammo purchased that would make you blush now, during the peak of this ammo panic? i'll start....i made both my shameful purchases on the same day....223 and 22 were NO WHERE to be found, and i came across the first i had laid eyes on in almost 2 months at a LGS. i paid $40 for a 50 round box of UMC 223. and i paid $12 for a 50 round box of ely 22. i walked out and immediately felt like a tool. i vowed not to pay over 20% mark up of what pre panic prices from that point on. a vow that kept me non shooting for about 4 months as i collected 20 round boxes of 223 at a reasonable price one at a time. as for 22, well...six months later i'm finding it here & there. about a week after my shameful purchase, i saw bulk packs of federal 22 selling for $90....walked away. sad part, they were selling like hotcakes for that! man up! tell your story of shame....IF you dare! lmao!
