The pains of .22lr
I've got a few put up for the kids and their habit. What really sticks in my crawl though, are the resellers. This $50-$60 dollar bullshit for a box of 500 that should be around $25 max is STILL ridiculous. Capitalism... Yeah, I know Dan, fuck off. Gouging on ammo is truly fucking people over. Instead of going to work like most of us, they are sitting out in front of the local sporting goods store until it opens and running in to buy their daily maximum and then have their spouse go in and buy the same maximum, then have their brother, sister, uncle or whatever the fuck go right back in behind them and buy it all out, only to turn right around on a local site to sell it at 50% or better markup. Shit ain't changed a bit. I do know this, if you time it right and do some research on who gets what delivered on what days, you can beat these gouging rats at their own game. I do. Funny thing though, they don't want to pay you what they are asking you to pay for it when they try and sell it to you at 50%+ markup. I get hit up to sell some of what I have sometimes. Not gonna happen ya shit dicks, we actually shoot ours instead of screwing people over in the form of a supplemented or main revenue stream. I'm a salesman who does millions in sales every year, you can't tell me shit about markups and "market value" that I don't already know. I just hate seeing folks raked over the coals just so they can take their grandchild or child shooting. It pisses me off.
