you're right. i thought there was an ammo shortage because of hoarders and people scared by newsmax, breitbart and FOX news. it's all actually because of a huge "plinker" craze that started in 2008.

What ever you say, of course you're right, why on earth would anyone think otherwise? We all know without a doubt you are the grand master of knowledge and what's going on in this world.

I deeply sorry for ever questioning your superb intelligence.

I have no idea what got into me!

OH REALLY! You been snoopin around in my gun room? YUP, not a safe, even this safe only holds 32 guns.

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Stack-On-32-Gu...-Green/16637349

I'd need 6 of them to come close to my collection.

So you have as many as everyone else here.

But then again, of course you probably have 1 more than I do, after all why would I question you?

So why do you feel the need to try and inject politics into every gun thread? For all your stated experience with firearms, you should have something substantive to offer that's actually on topic.

I bought a brick of 400 Federal 22lr CPHP about 10 years ago to go plinking and my gun (Jager AP74) wouldn't load it properly. So the ammo just went on the shelf (about 300 rounds left)

I just looked at the price tag on it and it is $14.99! crzy

Those of us in the know, know. Those of us who aren't haven't a clue!

Let those who don't know stay blissfully unaware. It is not our job to enlighten them.

can't explain your hoarding. you're just "in the know". LOL
certainly easier than trying to explain your mindset isn't it?

So, where does one draw the line on hoarding vs. preparedness?

I watched folks sit in line in 1973-1974 to buy gasoline that had nearly quadrupled in price. My mom was among them. Hoarding? Price gouging? Panic?

Or market responding to the Arab oil embargo and the dramatic shift in supply vs. demand?

Demand is way up for ammo. Gov't buying has been relatively steady, the increase has come from consumers. That means all of us here as well as the crazy preppers. Folks have the freedom to purchase what they want at the price they want. Like tulip bulbs in 1637, this can create excess demand due to public perception of scarcity...that's exactly what's going on with ammo. If you've not read the AR article to which I referred, I strongly encourage you to do so.

Similarly, I keep spare batteries in the house for hurricanes, but there's a run on them every time a hurricane nears my area. I simply prefer to buy them before the panic sets in and the prices go up based on the public perception of scarcity.

Can't do that with perishables, but I can do that with goods like ammo, batteries, bottled water, and yep, motor oil...

Folks that don't plan, or believe in future scarcity, are going to be paying more than folks that either plan better or that don't share that perception and are willing to wait.

How much ammo and how much cash have you donated to the Jr. league shooters whether it be 4-H, Scout Camp, or any other group/organization teaching the shooting sports to the upcoming generation?

Or are you only concerned with yourself and your political viewpoint.

Interesting that 22lr hoarding is even associated with preppers in any conversation. Since it is a free country, it is within everyone's rights to buy as much as a store will allow them at whatever price. That goes for ammo, water, kids clothes, or anything else bought or sold. Complaining about it just says you don't want it bad enough to go after it, or pay the current price for it. It's called choices, and you are free to make them. But advocating government intervention is just a whiners way of saying "make them give me whatever I want, make them... its not fair"
Someone call a waaaaaambulance.
