I was amazed at this gunsmith/gun shop talk about price gouging

And that's the problem with capitalism....in the end, everybody ends up with whatever they can afford.....

....it's almost like it's a natural thing....

Well it's better than waiting in line with a ration card for rotting potted meat for days. If your privileged enough for the utopia to issue you one.

There is no hunger in paradise.










I got the sarcasm. I hope.

So me buying three boxes of certain brands of ammo at a time (the Academy Sports limit in Texarkana FOR 223, 9MM, 7.62 Russian {as they call it meaning 7.62x39 as far as I can figure} & one other caliber I think 45 if I remember right) is what you evidently seem to be saying is:



If what you said is somehow what you think I was doing, obviously without any proof that I had done so, then I must point out I believe you to be a self serving ignorant opinionated person. But note that what I just said is conditional on if that is what you thought about what I was doing.

The only ammo I bought a lot of at Academy was 380 when there was no limit on it and 45 ACP likewise. I bought that 380 for myself and bought 500 rounds. While it was high priced, that is as compared to re-pandemic, pre-looting/rioting, pre-Biden scare prices it was not so bad compared to GunBroker prices or local gun store prices which are out of this world. When I bought them, there had to be at least another several hundred to 1,000 rounds on the shelves and that was several hours after the store opened that day so many others probably bought lots of it before me. I could have easily bought all of it and did what you just said but did not. In fact, there was another guy there just staring at it, seemingly with his thumb up his arse uncertain as whether or not to take the plunge into his pocket for cash or card, so I took what I could se for my two 380 pistols and left the rest there. A normal range day with two pistols would easily be 200 rounds at a minimum and more likely 250, so I got two range day's worth or if I stretched it out maybe 2.5 days worth. Pretty much the same with the Blazer 45 ACP except there was a lot more of it than there was of the 380 when I got it and other folks were there buying what they wanted just as was I. I have not sold any of that and probably will not as both me and my son needed some. At another time, in Academy Sports, I was limited to three boxes of 45 and sold none of them either. The 45 was also selling much higher than pre-frenzy prices.

On another note, I have to admit, that while at Academy Sports last week, I bought a set of dumbbell handles with the star locking system and four (4) ten pound weight plates. They actually seem to be in shorter supply than ammo, I have been looking there for over a month and never in that time saw weights or dumbbell handles until last week. Shame on me, I took the last set of handles and the last four (4) 10 lb weights! I got them so I could help myself become more fit and thus prevented someone else from doing likewise for himself. By your standards, I guess that would make me a POS but at least if I keep at the weights I will be a more physically fit POS!:popcorn:
Your reading comprehension leaves a bit to be desired. If you are purchasing anything for your own personal use then I have no querall with you. It is the guys that are purchasing ammo or water or gas or toilet paper or whatever comodity is in current short supply in order to sell it to me at a profit when the reason I couldn't purchase such comodity on my own is because said jackass bought all available supplies to begin with that I peoclaim to be a Piece of Shit.

I did not attack you personally but you do me by way of saying my reading comprehension skill leaves a bit to be desired. My reading comprehension is excellent and if you reread my post you will see my reply was conditional based upon what you meant - which definitely was left open to interpretation in this thread minus any further clarification from you. So you have clarified it. By the way, while reading - one cannot read and comprehend what is not written without assuming and I suppose you know what one does when he assumes.:peace:

Why is it people advocating socialism so quickly devolve to name calling and insulting people's intelligence when they don't or can't get what they want because of lack of planning/effort?

"Your reading comprehension leaves a bit to be desired." You've used this decidedly weak insult before, try a new one.

You should see a Dr for that. Specifically a psychiatrist because they can prescribe drugs.

On a personal note, I suggest looking in a mirror for a long time as you might find some answers to your issues there.
