    But are they getting what they're asking? We don't have to buy it.

    But you know someone will. Look back at the prices in '08.

    The price is right if you are willing to pay it. I say don't buy at such high prices.
    The point, if we don't elect conservatives to Congress and to the Presidency (Trump) we will face the strongest push against the Second Amendment and freedom of speech and freedom of religion.
    Apathy, must not be allowed to elect our next leaders. The people must see the anarchy that is happening around the country.

    I'm sure it's an unpopular opinion, but I have no problem at all with anybody asking anything they want for what they have for sale. Don't like the price? Don't buy it.

    How confident are you in a Trump reelection?
    You could unload and then rebuy 3x as much after Trump's election or you can unload and stare at your .22s when Biden wins the mail in ballot fraud.

    Can't tell from the ad, buy my guess - it is from cheaper than dirtbags!

    Looks like it works out to about $14.99/ box of 50.

    I've never bought ammo on line. Do they add a hazard fee and higher cost for shipping because it is ammo?

    I just bought a Federal 335 pack at Walmart for $16.95. I am on the hunt again even though I have a good supply. When I see it at a good price I will pick some up.

    I've never paid anything more than regular shipping for loaded ammo.

    Back when this happened the first time I must admit I bought a couple of those $80 bricks. Figured without ammunition my guns are nothing more than expensive clubs. After that I just kept my eyes peeled for deals.

    Probably is. Just checked dirtbag's price on Armscor 22lr/500 - it's the same.

    You think that price is high? Just wait to see ammo prices if the Dems take over the Senate and White House. There is a bill currently sitting on the side lines for a 50% tax on all ammo. Add that to the PR tax of 11%, and your local state sales tax (or more) and you are looking at somewhere between 61% and 70% tax on ammo. You know that the Dems will push to pass that bill and others.

    A few yrs ago when ammo prices went sky-high & .22's were selling for the price of 9mm, if you could find them, I simply sold all my .22 rifles & all my pistols with the exception of a Ruger .22 convertible in stainless that is in the original box & never been fired, that I bought for my son when he got old & smart enough. He's in his mid 30's now & while he's old enough, he sure ain't smart enough. He still has the mill stone around his neck & she absolutely won't have a gun in the house. I Told him I'd put that quote on her tombstone when the SHTF. I'd just as soon keep practicing with 9mm anyhow!
