I have a feeling we're getting screwed by the gun/ammo distributors. What do you think?
Don't you think it's rather peculiar when you can walk into a mom and pop gun shop and see no guns, ammo or accessories? But yet walk into another gunshop and see the shelves full? If you've ever sold guns or had access to a distributors website you will see that guns and ammo are "allocated" before they arrive at the distributor. Or they don't list any quantities on hand but say "call your rep". Something fishy is going on. I think manufacturers and/or distributors may be hoarding or holding back products to drive up prices. And I think distributors are selectively putting smaller mom and pop gunshops out of business by catering to those gunshops that have high volume sales. Either way it's not fair or right.
