THEN STOP BUYING EVERY ROUND OF AMMO OR MAGAZINE IN THE STORE FOR YOURSELF! If you are one of those people who I have caught sweeping a whole shelf of ammo into your cart -- Shame on you! If you are one of those dealers who allow that kind of nonsense -- Shame on you! If you are one of those people who was so panicked on the 19th that you went over my counter to sweep all of the AR/Glock/Sig mags off of the wall -- Not just shame on you... you need to learn how to act like a human. Ammo is no longer plentiful. As a result, I have to buy it in smaller quantities and at much higher prices. I am well aware that just three weeks ago a box of 5.56 ammo retailed for $7-$10. However, since buyers have wiped out the existing supply and some retailers have allowed that to happen, I have to spend more time looking for it and have to pay more money for it. I am paying more than what I sold it for retail just 3 weeks ago. I will not be selling it for what it sold for just three weeks ago. While I am trying to keep my prices rational, I will not lose a moment of sleep because you "used to be able to get it for (insert pre-12/18/12 price)" . It's sad really. I have taken the precaution of limiting sales of things like magazines and ammo for individual customers. But somehow I am the bad guy because I'm trying to allow ALL of my customers to get a reasonable supply of ammunition, and not just "you" (you know who you are Mr. Larch Mountain Bumpfire Commando). And while I'm on a tear, stop beating up salespeople. I swear to God, the CEO of (gun maker) does not keep me personally up to date with his companies production schedule. I don't know when they will make more of whatever you were after, I just work here. I don't know what Congress is going to do either. I don't get phone calls from the Speaker or Senate President. Forgive me at being angry at this, but put yourself in my position. Try being asked the same question 100 times in a row by 100 different people in a row and see if you're as enthusiastic about answering. And last but not least, if you get testy with me because you don't like the fact that I can't answer your question to your satisfaction, you are making a fool of yourself and should simply move on. I don't make the guns. I don't make the law. If you want someone to be angry at, it's the guy who bought every round of 5.56mm in the store. It's the store owner who ALLOWED 1-2 people to clean them out of ammo and mags in a day or two. It's the guy who walks up to the counter and points at the ammo and says "all of it", then gets bent out of shape because I won't sell it all to him, nor will I sell it at a price lower than my replacement cost. Next time you hear someone bragging because they picked up 10,000 rounds of ammo when all of this panic first started, tell that person to go play in traffic.
