The other day, a member who has sold a fair amount of stuff put some ammo on the board. Now my guess, from looking at his posts is that he is probably a pretty good guy. He was asking quite a bit for his "plinking" ammo and I had commented in the thread that he was asking 50 cents a round for plinking ammo. He sent me a pm and asked me to remove my post and to stop "thread crapping". He asked nicely, so no complaints with his pm at all. It just got me to thinking about what the appropriate response is to all of this stuff going on. His feeling was that it is his right to ask whatever he wants for something that he owns and that my only right is to ignore it if I don't like the price. I guess that where my whole confusion comes in is that under normal circumstances I agree with him. But are these really normal circumstances. I am so tired of going into BiMart (like I did yesterday) to find 15 people in line waiting ammo to come in. In groups, not alone. I stood and listened to them. Most of them were there to buy up anything that came in to resell and came in with friends as a team. Only a couple of us were there because we actually needed a particular ammo to go shoot. Same thing at Walmart, Fred Meyers, etc., etc. Just saw a thread on another forum where a guy recognizes a guy as a dealer and see him in line at Walmart with several friends. .22LR comes in and each one of the guys buys everything he is allowed to. It runs out before all the guys waiting can even get to it. He follows the guys out to their cars and sees the dealers friends all give the dealer the ammo they bought, then later sees it on the dealers shelves, with price jacked up. Several of the guys that I saw in BiMart were from the east side and this was a very west side store that I was in. Every sporting clerk that I have spoken to says ammo comes in, but there is always a line and it never lasts more than a few minutes. So it just seems to me that this has nothing to do with the free market system working. It has to do with profiteers messing up an entire supply line for everyone. So, is it really wrong to point them out in the classifieds at this point and hopefully bring it to new peoples attention that these are the guys that have the ammo supply so messed up that it is going to take months to get it straight, if not more. It is not hard to find ammo. I can buy all that I would ever need. I just have to buy it through the profiteers around here. Personally, I like to see the group start to jump on these aholes and put a stop to this crap.
