Cheaper than Dirt

Last night I was visiting the website Cheaper Than Dirt, well they are not Cheaper. I saw 3-4 types of 9mm 50 round boxes of ammo for about $69.95 + per box and I called them to see if it was correct. They confirmed the price was correct and I was floored they would put that HIGH a price on ammo. It was available where the other samples said out of stock. Crazy for someone to fall for those high prices. They must be in cahoots with ATF, Big Sis, etc.

If you've been following anything that's been going on for the past 4 or so months, you'll know that sales are through the roof on firearms and many accessories, and in many cases, items are simply NOT available, or are in extremely limited quantities.

It's a basic tenet of capitalism that when supply goes down and demand goes up, prices also rise.

That said, we've had many threads here in the past few months about the high price of this and the unavailablity of that, and while we feel your pain, we really don't need another such thread at this time.
