Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and then



Lady at Walmart was hiding them behind the counter for someone. When I told her I haven't bought .22lr in so long she felt guilty and pulled them out and asked if I wanted them. She said she would get in trouble if her boss saw them and the person who wanted them never showed up. I told her I would get rid of them for her

I overheard two guys talking about .22 ammo in the grocery store the other day. One of the guys said (And I quote) "I've only got about 4,000 rounds left. I'm getting kinda worried and not shooting any more."

I wanted to slap him.

At the last gun show I was at, a guy had a whole table full of all kinds of .22 ammo at outrageous prices. (Thunderbolt for $10 box, Bricks of Wildcat for $90.) He basically admitted that he knew when shipments came into the stores and had guys that worked in those stores holding cases of .22 for him. I asked him if he thought that was right. He seemed quite proud of himself, and answered, "It's business."

I should have slapped him too.

My brother is scrounging to find .22 ammo for his Boy Scouts to shoot next month. I offered him the 300 rounds I have if he turns up dry. Meanwhile these fucktards are scalping.

Some call it capitalism, but it's an ugly and leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

At our local Sportsmen Warehouse two guys were talking about having 5,000 + rounds each as they stood in line to buy their limit of 3 boxes. They were ran out of the store Wish I had been there to chase them out myself.

That's ridiculous. I understand if you have the hookups and buy a good bulk of it and offer it at a slight increase. Business is business. I did this with AR mags. But thats scalping, not simple business. I never did that with the AR accessories.
