Retailers that are price gouging.

I was just reading the other thread labeled post panic pricing. It was mentioned that we should remember the retailers that are currently price gouging and choose not to patronize them after everything settles down, sounds like a great idea to me. I would say that, in fairness, a pre panic price should be listed along with the "gouge" price, product, date and retailer. Should be pretty interesting to see who the repeat offeners are.

I ordered some primers from Natchez SS this morning and they were the same price they have been all along. Good outfit to deal with.

In a free market society, there is no such thing as price gouging.
Supply, demand and what the market will bear - that's it.

What the market will bear: It means "the highest price you can sell your goods at in the market you are in".
You need to know what your competition is selling their products at in order to get a guideline.

If the price is more than you want to pay - DON'T BUY IT!

It's not a buyers market right now, but that will change.

This thread won't last long, and I have been one to bitch about CTD raising there prices, but now I think are efforts should turn toward boycotting business that are unfriendly toward the second amendment i.e. Bank of America, ESPN, Hypocritical Hollywood celebrities that make movies with guns then preach about gun Violence.

Cabelas was a little pricier than everyone else before the panic but they've kept their prices constant, now they're cheap, relative to some of the scalping being done by Cheaper than None/Give Us Your Shirt/Cheaper than Dirt and others. Armory M1A 20rd mags other places are going for $100 ea. Cabelas sold me three for $170

Not a semi-auto rifle topic and it's been beaten to death anyway.
