I’ve never stood in line for ammo but I’ve always planned ahead. I guess if I had none, I would stand in line for my 3 boxes but it would be for personal use, not to re-sell.
The problem with these guys lining up every morning is it postpones the return to normalcy.
Apparently they need money a lot more than I do.

How much is my time worth? Fred396 in TLH said folks line up at 7:30am for a 9am opening hoping to score some ammo. If they are lucky they score three boxes after being in line for an hour and a half with a bunch of smelly rednecks. PS: I identify as one myself, so no offense given or taken, lol. So, you're getting up 6:30, standing in line from 7:30 till 9 and only scoring three boxes of ammo. You're dog gone right I'm going to triple the price when I sell it. Scalping, I don't think so. If you want to pay that $14.99 price, get your butt up out of bed at 6:30 and get down there and get in line and buy it at $14.99. Otherwise, I don't want to hear about no scalping. As I said at the beginning.....how much is my time worth?
I would rather pay more and get 1,000 rounds delivered to my house.

All of a sudden you’re the Uniter in Chief after you get called out for being a rude, down talking, know it all. You’re right, this forum should be that way, but the problem is one has to wade through all of yours and other’s sarcastic, unnecessary, and downright rude opinions of those who ask a simple question. Anyone who dares ask a question you deem beneath you, instead of answering a question, you belittle them and talk down to them like they’re not worthy of your infinite wisdom being bestowed upon them. That’s not helpful or what this forum “should be”. It’s narcissistic.

LIKE IN LIFE. - - -> There are groups of people on this forum that get along well to extremely well together. For the most part we do not see each other socially unless it is at the range shooting together.
We help each out with transactions ( buy,sell,trade),with loaning each other parts to try,advice on new parts,or the installation and function of said parts.
Between us we either now own,have owned in the past,or have first ( or close second) hand expierance with a large variety of weapons,scopes,and related equipment. We reccomend each other as far as knowledge on this or that. Also help with problems with certain weapons.
I have received help and given help to quite a few on this forum. I firmly believe that this SHOULD BE what this forum should be all about. But is it ??
Do members not really know that ammo prices are high ?? Do people really not know that guns,ammo,and associsted equipment is scarce ?? Did some members of this forum really not see this coming ??
Life is pretty simple (not as complecated) for the people that live by the "7 P's".
I have everything that I need to shoot,hunt,and accomplish my firearms training. If I come up short I buy or borrow from others until I can pay them back in kind.
If I see a good deal on ammo and know that a friend needs it,I will buy it for him. My prices for offered items on this forum usually do not reflect the price to a well known forum member. I have the absolute right to pick and choose who I do buisness with,as do we all. I have the right to put a price on my for sale item that I want to sell it for,as do we all.
I have the absolute right to shop at the stores that I want to shop at,AS DO WE ALL.
DAMN PEOPLE . . . can it get any simpler than that ?? --- SAWMAN

I’ve sold some ammunition to form members, and most of them have resold it at a profit ,on this forum or arms list. I mark every case and box of ammunition I buy so it’s not hard to recognize the ammunition I’ve previously owned . It’s their right to do what they want with what they’ve bought and paid for. No hard feelings on my part, but what pisses me off is the loud mouth know it all’s that get on this and other forums and call people gougers . If the dumb fuckers are so damn smart , then why are they the ones that don’t have ammunition . If you’ve ever called anyone a price gouger ,posted a negative review about someone that didn’t even deal with you, or in general been an asshole for no good reason , then You can consider yourself on the out side of the circle. it would appear that integrity is becoming a rare trait in these trying times.

Absolutely... and everyone remember the individuals who buy it all up then sell it for 2x as much... we can add them to our "cheaper than dirt" list...

Yup. That’s what I do.
Seriously, give me one day as a mod, I’d have this place cleaned right up.
