I picked up some 40sw brass from a guy in Lewiston about 8 yrs ago or close to, it was during one of the school shooting panic buy. He was telling me that he was selling 500ct bricks of 22's on Gunbroker for $95-$150 per brick and that he had sold almost 50 bricks up to that point.
I asked him about his price gouging and he said he wouldn't do that. He said that he doesn't set the price as all his auctions were starting out at a penny and the ending price was whatever the person was willing to pay to play.
He simply said "if someone wants to pay me $150 for a brick of 22's, there's no way I'm going to say no".

That is perfectly fine with me, but I will never buy or sell anything to anybody that has been price gouging being a retailer or private seller. If you go the route above great, but don't set a ridiculous price.

Why not support your local stores? I have never bought ammunition online and think it's time is coming to an end. I'm sure glad I never went to this crazy vortex of a website that forced me to buy ammunition at high prices. Your lack of preparation does not constitute an emergency on anyone else's part.

Our local stores are sold out of all common ammo and have been for a couple of months. I like to buy local and will...if they ever have more ammo. :dunno:

And it's not a lack of preparation. It's constant training that requires a restock from time to time.

HW members price gouging!!!   New thread topic for those concerned.    Reality is people will charge what the buyer is willing to pay.   Just donít buy from these people / companies ever....   thatís the only way to stop the gouging.  Unfortunately that will never happen because people will pay their prices.

Devil's advocate here......fyi I'd give a sleeve of primers away before taking advantage of pricing......but a box of 9mm isn't essential.  You can survive without.  Ammo isn't food, shelter,  medical related.....
I disagree. It can provide you with food, shelter, and medical supplies in an emergency.... as long as they don't pull a gun too 🤣

I used to joke about this with my wife.

Oh don't worry hun, we have a stockpile of food just like the neighbor. I have a gun.

Itís called ďCapitalismĒ . You know, working for profit? Supply and demand. A item is worth what one is willing to pay for it. If a person canít afford it or isnít willing to pay the price asked. Then move along. Anything after that is pointless.
