Well said Jack, and Troyboy is right on.
A week ago yesterday, I was in Lewiston, Idaho and stopped in at the Black Sheep.
They still had CCI Blazer bulk pack .22 by the case (5250 rounds) for just less then $160. Limit of one case per customer per day. Best price I'd seen since obamanation #1.
Not so now, I just heard yesterday that the limit was down to two bulk packs per customer.
I'm guessing there were at least 30 - 40 cases that I could see just over a week ago, or +/- a quarter of million rounds, and most of it sold in a week or less.
I heard that this ammo was available quite awhile back, so anyones guess how many millions went out the door.
This is ammo, by the way, that is produced within 2 miles of the Black Sheep.
Did I buy a case when I saw it? You bet I did and would likely do so again if the opportunity presented itself.
I have a young hunter that I will continue mentoring this Summer, and we WILL use some ammo in the process. Both .22RF and reduced load 30/06.
I am back ordered on the 165gr Hornady Interlock I plan to load for Nate's hunting this coming Fall, but push comes to shove, I'll load from my 180gr stock that was laid in at the first obamanation, or stock that has been sitting on the shelf for years.
Food, components, fuel, clothes, blankets are all like money in the bank. Buy them when you can.
In fact, money in the bank is only a promise to pay you, and that piece of worthless paper is only good as long as someone is willing to except it in trade for what they have.
How long is that going to work out?
