When bullets become trading stock and currency, some of those "hoarders" are going to appear to be genus' while the rest of us dumb bunnies are sitting around saying "Why didn't I prepare?" Just a thought.
I honestly can't understand bashing the LGS for running short of supplies. Isn't most everybody a little short of supplies? And why would you drive to the store when you could simply call and ask?
Me? I bought 1K primers and 2# of powder from a LGS when I first started three years ago and quickly swapped to online ordering because the economy of bulk purchaseing and the ability to get the things the LGS would never stock.
A lack of planning on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on my part.
