This past year as regards the lack of ammunition for firearms has been really frustrating. With life problems in the past I was generally able to structure a ‘work-around’. If something wasn’t available in my town I’d go to the one next door. If they didn’t have it I’d order it. I was even willing to travel out of state. There was usually a way if you wanted to work hard enough, drive far enough, or think smart enough.
But this one had me flummoxed. The government doesn’t want you to have ammo. The producers want to keep the squeeze on to put prices through the roof. The stores? I don’t know what their problem was. You can’t make money with zero sales. These “shortages” happen every few years. These companies never take action to prepare for or alleviate the shortages. They are always completely blindsided. Its like they enjoy giving a big middle finger to their customers and make sky-high profits for a year or two at your expense.
I said to myself, “Never again”. Every month or two I’m going to keep buying from one of my online sellers. I’ll stock up on primers. I won’t be buying American, and I won’t be buying from the local stores. You want a war? You got it. Not one penny to you price gouging sons a bitches. I won’t be buying these brands ammo:
- CCI Blazer
And I won’t be buying from these stores:
- Bass Pro
- Fleet Farm
- Sportsman’s Warehouse
The producers and their co-conspirators in this price gouging scheme can go to hell. This ain’t going to happen to me again. I’ll buy:
- Fiocchi (the Italian made ‘red box’)
- Sellier & Bellot
