While i am watching these 6-8 men getting 3 boxes a piece of what they had left, i couldnt help but listen to there conversation which quickly led to several others getting in on as well. Everyone was screw the Govt., we should unite and put an end to this, let em come and try to take my guns, etc. etc. It seems that this is getting ramped up more and more evry day. Is there a certain level in society where you just have to say heck with it, lets do this. Are we gonna explode out of our box that we are being ever more stuffed further into.? Is it what "THEY" want us to do? I mean young kids who normally wouldnt have much a political view were showing signs of pure hardcore hatred.

And I have even seen stores selling .223 for around 1.50 per round for the cheap crap brands. Price gouging at it's finest for sure.
One man's "price gouging" is another man's 'supply and demand.'
The market dictates price.
You are correct in that statement, but like minded people should not be screwing eachother to make a buck. I guess the sky is green in my world, and I believe fellow gun owners should be helping eachother instead of taking advantage if they want to scream about uniting for gun rights.

am leaning to the us government buying up all this ammo recently for a reason to create a short supply for the general public...
let em come and try to take my guns
Businesses have the right to make profit and there is nothing wrong with that. Individuals taking advantage of individuals is wrong. Buying out ammo at retail prices which arent too bad and marking it up 50%-100% is BS.
Luckily I have had my bug out ammo for a while now with no plans on using it, but I do need to occasionally buy ammo to hit the range. $20 for 20 rounds of Wolf .223 is just stupid.
I really do understand and appreciate your point. What gets my goat is the people yelling that we stand together as gun owners, then pull that stuff. It's like saying if the Government isn't going to use lube on us, we're not going to use it on eachother as well.
