im going to leave it alone i think. i did post a link to natchez having the exact same ammo in stock right now @$200.00. Every other gun sales page im apart of would let you post a link to that in his thread, but i dont think that'll be as well recieved here. hopefully people see my link to natchez and ignore him.

which is BS. you wouldnt overpay for something, hoping you could then mark it up. people who pay 250 for 1000 rounds of fmj know its worth $170-$200 and are buying it because of percieved need. you would never pay that price and hope to flip it.

Why is it worth that much time for $50 anyway? Goodness, go get a normal job and create value rather than just buying for a buck and selling for two.

Really?? What do you think distributors and retailers do?? Hint: they buy from manufacturers and resell for more money. Literally millions of people in this country do exactly this for a living, including me.

What's price gouging today, might be a smoking deal in a month. How is this price gouging? He's not selling overpriced food to staving people. If you waited till now to buy ammo after years of historically low prices, then you should pay the going rate. Supply and demand.

I agree...I also use my ignore feature. If I have someone on ignore it isn't because they hurt my feeling or upset me it's because they are a tool and it's a good reminder to my future self to steer clear of that douchebag!

Just because it doesnt meet the legal definition of price gouging punishable by law, that doesnt make it right. and hes not selling at the going rate. going rate right now is $.20 cpr. If he wanted to list it on armslist, or texasguntrader or something, i would care as much. But the THF is more of a community than those places, and it is a scummy thing to do. Scummy people should be called out. Thats how people stop being scummy.

OK I got a question for the price police.

I have several boxes of 20 gauge slugs I have been meaning to sell for awhile now but there hasn't been any demand so it hasn't been worth my time. Looks like the going price "was" about $5+ when they could still be found. Today they are all sold out everywhere I look online. So is it wrong for me to ask full retail of $5 per box for pre owned ammo? Im not making a dime at that price but its dang sure more than pre owned ammo was worth a week ago.

Serious question because I really am going to sell it.

You guys better get to work. Lots of “overpriced” ammo out in internet land. Someone’s gotta be the sheriff:

An item is worth as much as the purchaser is willing to pay for it.

On September 11th 2001 I bet you could have sold a $600 parachute for a few million dollars to the right person at the right place.

Couldn’t care less what a business does. I do care when people come into a smaller community like the THF and try to do that. If somebody wants to buy expensive ammo or ARs, that’s up to them, but I atleast want to make sure they understand they are paying too much. Shortly after the Newtown shooting, my dad who hadn’t bought ammo in years decided he needed to stock up on a few boxes. He had zero idea what the ammo was worth, he walked into a local gun store and paid $50 a brick for .22 and $35 a box for 9mm fmj. If somebody would have told him in that shop, hey by the way, this is way more than it’s worth, he would have thought twice.

I'm not politically correct and never will be. I'm also pretty darn it offencive. That example was also intended to be hyperbole.

I have to say that I'm not real pleased with a member of our community treating other members in this fashion. We're friends here, save the high prices for the chumps

It’s one thing for someone to offer it. And another to ask it knowing the situation. There’s no shortage just a bunch of idiots creating false panic.
