    I said "first panic buy of 2020" because I expect at least one other before the election (of course, this one may just keep going). This is what I bought and received to date:

    A Good Ammo Panic Buy With More Coming.jpg

    I've got a case of Winchester Super 35 REM, 200 grain ammo and 500 rounds of CCI 22 Short and 250 rounds of Prvi Partizan 180 grain 44 REM MAG all still awaiting shipping. I love a good panic, it's an excuse to buy more ammo.

    I did not NEED too either but I still bought some ammo. I figured on what I might need in the future and what I desired to have more of in stock since I have been rebuilding my inventory after a partial sell-off before my move to TX. As I said: "I love a good panic, it's an excuse to buy more ammo." Then again, why would I need an excuse now that I am separated! :banana:

    Of course, it's nice not to need and while I did not need any in the regular sense of the word, I have been bitten by that bug that makes me want the need to acquire more guns & ammo almost constantly. Any way, I did my part to spur on the economy during this so called crisis.

    I’m not gonna panic buy anything. Don’t need anything.

    I have lots of wants, but no needs.

    I keep what I consider to be a reasonable supply, and I DON'T buy during a panic. I don't want to contribute to the problem, and I don't want to get gouged on price.

    On that same note: I will NEVER buy from CTD - panic, no panic, cheap price, nothing. I've seen them screw people when other shortages occurred and I will not ever contribute to their profits. I remember companies that treat me right and I really remember those who don't.

    When things get back to something close to normal, those of you who ended up short because you only buy one or two boxes of ammo at a time need to really take a hard look at the amount you shoot each year and try to have at least that amount saved up.

    Nothing. Tons of ammo stocked up after one of the prior panic prices dropped.

    Not a panic buy, since it was about a week before things got crazy, but I picked up a sig p365. Glad I did, too. NICS delays now and all of that. I'm plenty stocked on ammo in all calibers I keep. Mags too. Guess I don't need to panic.
