You don't go to the farm to get produce. You pay people to bring it to the store and others to shelve it. In fact they're doing people a favor. Because they keep the ammo supplies moving we can get it.

Let's all praise the gouger, hoarder, flipper, speculator, and most importantly the middleman. Without them we'd be worse off.

In fact because of them I've been able to take my sons shooing.
Walmart is not the manufacturer. They are the middle man. And plenty of people do in fact buy from the farmer.

Currently there is an unusual run on ammo. It's been going on for quite a few years.

If you are thanking a scalper, you are doing it wrong IMO.
