    Just like gasoline. But people aren't going to stop driving or shooting.

    Wanna bet, some people will stop driving and shooting sooner than others it just depends on their financial situation.

    This bubble's going to burst, and the people that bought all that ammo are gonna
    have enough to last them a long time.
    I'll be buying then, when supply outstrips demand.
    It's a waiting game at this point.

    Since I quit paying $6 for a pack of smokes two or three times every day, I have a bit more left over for the ammo budget.

    Never started buying ammo during this run or any previous run. A regular habit of adding to the reloading components over the years leaves one unshackled to the fluctuations of factory ammunition pricing.

    I do mourn the spike in prices of .22 Long Rifle though. Can't load that. And, while I have a stockpile, I'm a little reluctant to burn it as freely as I'm prone to want to do.

    If everyone would stop buying ammo prices would definitely drop but that will never happen, so ride it out and do what you can.

    I am pretty much only buying when I actually go to the range. I have some (maybe 800 or 900 rounds) in storage. I will pick up a couple boxes at Wally World if they happen to have it when I go in, but I am not going out of my way to look for anything. I agree that it is a bubble and will pop at some point, such is capitalism...

    Until we know the outcome of all this pending legislation, some of it directed towards ammunition, I will keep buying at a variety of prices until I think I have enough. I'm not even halfway to "enough".

    I am upset at politicians for trying to undermine my rights, not because ammo prices are high.

    I have to politely call BS. Every price bubble we've seen has started with some misguided action by the government or its agents. Without such action, capitalism is a relatively stable system.

    Why don't you just tell a crack addict to stop buying dope...

    or a liberal politician to stop spending...

    or...

    get the point?

    The unfortunate side-effect, it seems to me, is that there are a lot of people out there who are arming themselves for the first time since these new laws were being proposed. But it's not just the ammo that's going through the roof, it's guns too. In many cases I'm seeing the same gun going for 30% or more above the price they were going for last year. Heckuva way to welcome new supporters.
