    ammo

    Went on a trip to Ohio last week and stopped in Gander Mountain. The shelves were full of ammo (no 380 of course) but the prices were outrageous.....$39.00 for a box of 38 Special (50 rounds).

    Anyone willing to pay that price is adding to the problem in my opinion.

    there were many stories about gas companies getting in trouble for gouging. How can that same "rule" not apply to firearms and ammunitions dealers?

    The fuel business is a regulated utility. Not so with arms, which like most every other product/service prices based on what the market will bear.

    You're joking, right? The only time I've ever heard about the price of fuel being regulated was during natural disasters and the oil crisis of the early 70's.

    Any other time, it is what the gasoline stations charge (which oddly seems to go up and down almost perfectly in sync).

    I have seen much larger differences in prices of both ammo and guns.
