But when I need some ammo for hunting or target shooting and I can't find any because someone decided to hoard it up to sell to some sucker later.... well it pisses me off just a little bit.


Ahhhh.... so what this really comes down to is *your* lack of preparedness?

I have a buddy that started hitting Wal*Mart's looking for TulAmmo .223 back in November. By the time of the shooting, he'd already picked up about 5000rds. Some of our mutual friends laughed at him at the time... asked why he was buying so much ammo.

Am I supposed to be mad at him for planning ahead? Should I also be mad at him if he chooses to sell some of that ammo if someone is willing to give him double what he paid? I guess I just don't see how I am supposed to blame him because he planned ahead and someone is willing to pay top dollar for something he has.



That is not the same thing DRM.... and NOT what I am talking about at all.... I'm talking about taking advantage of people.

My "lack" of being prepared.... I think not, and again not what I was referring to...

As I said, if someone wants to shell out big money for something... good for them.... What's the old saying, There is a sucker born every day?


I'm done with this silly thread....

carry on....

I think i'm going to protest buying gas now..... You guys got me thinking. Back in 1987 I could buy gas for .99 cents. Now I'm paying $3.19. I'm going to show them and not be a sucker anymore. Just went out and bought a good pair of shoes.... \:D

Not sure about this statement "That is not the same thing DRM.... and NOT what I am talking about at all.... I'm talking about taking advantage of people."

Since people can live without owning an AR-15 and it's not a necessities of life. How are people being taken advantage of? It's pretty easy.... You can either pay the prices being asked or not own one. It's pretty simple considering no one is required to own an AR-15.... \:\)

How is a free market exchange of goods for cash taking advantage of someone? Does the buyer *need* an AR15? And if they do *need* it, shouldn't they have planned ahead and bought it before the panic set in?

How is the gas station changing the price on the sign while you are filling your tank any different? The has in their tanks cost them the same as it did 30 seconds ago, yet they are about to charge more... They are reacting to market forces and adjusting accordingly... Seems the same to me.
