While I haven't done what I would consider "panic buying," I have been affected by it trying to do what should be "regular buying." I bought one new gun a few weeks ago (Charter Arms Bulldog pug), which I then needed to find reloading components for (only need Large Pistol Primers now), and have been searching for a bulk pack of 22lr or two since I am nearly out
. I refused to pay what I consider "panic prices," so I have to search diligently and see what I can scrounge from those who haven't raised them through the roof. The only thing I paid more for than it would have been before the panic was the revolver, and only by $20 or so, which I didn't mind since they were hard to find in that particular configuration (Black DAO) even before "the troubles."
