I really start to wonder if some folks get so tired of looking for ammo just to shoot and not store, that they just say the heck with it and give up.
How many potential new members to the shooting community have been turned away by the unavailability of guns, ammo, and even presses and dies?
Until our local WalMart put in place the 3 box limit a clerk told me that a local fellow would come in and buy every box of .22lr, 9mm and 7.62x39 in the cabinet as soon as they filled it.
When she told me he was the same guy who bought every 100 watt incandescent bulb before they were phased out, I knew exactly who he was.
He is a local slumlord with a bunch of mobile home rental properties and a genuine jerk. Apparently he is re-selling the ammo out of one of the trailers, marked up as high as the market will bear. I hope when things get back to normal he ends up having to use the ammo and bulbs for suppositories.
