Wow, tough crowd

Absolutely agree that capitalism/supply/demand/etc make the world go 'round. Wouldn't have it any other way, for the most part.

However, if I was trying to do a good deed and had the same experience as the OP, I'd be pissed too.

Umm... how do you figure? They buy up the stock from the local distributors before we can buy it ourselves and resell at a higher price. That helps us out how?

Or maybe if people only bought what they needed, and flippers didn't buy out all the ammo as soon as it came in, you would've been able to buy it from the local middle-man at a more reasonable price. You think?

Yeah, I know. There'll always be someone trying to take advantage of a situation. Coming back to reality now.
