No more than I'd be if I asked $45.00 for a Silver Eagle I paid $10.00 for years ago.

No charge.

How do you send ammo in compliance with the law?

Went to Bud's yesterday. They had 25 round boxes of 12 gauge 00 buck for $15. It's some brand from France that I've never heard of,..but it seems to be good stuff. It holds about a 6" pattern at 30' through an improved cylinder barrel.

How do you get that symbol? Just print it out and tape it to the box?

Oh, so it's pretty casual. I was worried it was some very technical requirement that could get you in deep trouble if you deviated one iota. Good to know.

Any extra charge to ship ammo vs anything else?

crazy That's an interesteing way to try to explain it, LOL. Saving us from the gougers by charging just under the top gouger pricing. Most of the LGS are smart enough to keep ammo back for guns they are able to get in becuase no one wants to buy a gun they can't ammo for. I just get a little pissed when you hear and see Academy, Cabelas, etc selling ammo for near pre-panic prices and these local shops are selling it as soon as it comes in a 3 times the price. Someone is either losing their a$$ or gouging, so which is it?

It's a catch-22 for the LGS. Price it normal and it's gone in 60 seconds by scalpers, hoarders and those normal souls who were fortunate enough to be there at the right time. Pricing it higher attenuates the scalping and hoarding activity so the average guy can at least get some if he wants or needs it bad enough, but it surely won't make the average joe happy. The LGS didn't create the situation though.

It’s not bad at all. Just go online and print the postage, list “ammunition” where it asks for “contents” then tape the symbol on it. The biggest pain is taking it to a customer center. Not a UPS store or drop box.

Easy peasy.

Funny think is a nabed a box from work that had the symbol on it. It was from a box of liquid hand sanitizer.

I went up to the gun show today and they were happy to pay $200 a brick of 1000 primers. Sold 20 thousand. Lot of folks were not prepared.

That's not driving prices up, nor is it causing demand to increase. It is merely increasing supply. A 'stash' has nothing to do with the current market. Additional supply usually drives prices down. However, given the increased, sustained demand brought on by the implantation of a communist in the White House, that market dynamic doesn't exist anymore.

As I have been sorting through my handloading stuff thinking with two sons fairly new handloaders, I found I have 5k each of MPP's large and small as well the same MRP's large and small, all of the magnums that I rarely have a "need" for these days. SPP's and SRP's are really what I use these day and I have 5k of those as well. Figure I can move towards MP's either handgun or rifle just fine by backing off on powder a bit and be fine as I don't chase velocity. Yes?

Something is seriously wrong when a gun owning enthusiast complains about ammunition shortages and high prices,
when he already has literally, thousands of rounds in his possession - and bewails his need for more.

Folks - One Round of ammunition is akin to a good vitamin pill. One A Day should suffice.
