  1. I was lucky and picked up 1000 of these CCI BR4 primers at sportsman warehouse in show low this morning. They had one more thousand brick. FYI if anyone is in the area.

  2. Thanks for the heads up! Although I'm too far away to take advantage of it, cool of you to let people know about it.
    I was at Sportsman's in Yuma yesterday and the only primers they had were for 50 BMG.
    Doesn't do the majority of us much good. Oh well. It is what it is.
     

  3. Whoa whoa. Hell yeah I need some 50 bmg primers on sale LOL. 20-30 bucks for a 100! They're usually 50$ for 100
     
  4. I have enough primers to last me a couple years, The problem I have is My adult kids want to shoot off my stash because they can't find ammo of there own!
    I normally don't mind, They have been very good about replacing what they use..... But when will it be available again?

    Sorry, there is a point where even family is going to have to wait. There is no "replacement" yet and what I heard is that the ammo manufacturers are using up everything available because of the run on ammo. When the idiots that are hoarding get through hoarding, we might get back to normal. Until then no one gets my stash, of which I have little to none.

  7. So just for clarification where does the difference lie between having a stash and hoarding? why are people who had the foresight to have a good long lasting supply considered hoarders. I tend to buy several thousand at a time. Is that hoarding? I buy when they are cheap and plentiful. Is that wrong? I disagree with your use of the word idiot. This situation may never actually get better with the incoming group of socialist gun haters.

    If you normally buy 2 packs of toilet paper when you go to Costco and this time you bought 5 because you were afraid of a shortage, that has no basis other than word of mouth you are hoarding and a selfish idiot with a me,me, me mentality. Foresight in this case is hoarding with no basis in fact.

  9. I clearly do not understand your logic. I do not care what other people buy or do not buy. I have never been to a Costco. I have enough food to last a year or more. I believe in self reliance. Is that hoarding? I do not care if someone hoards whatever they want. Not my business. I guess I am from a different mindset. Not being argumentative just do not understand why you call them hoarders. So one box of ammo at a time? That would be foolhardy in this day and age. I reload all of my own ammo and for my adult sons. So is my supply hoarding? I started this post simply to help my fellow hunters an# shooters out.

    You did not read, or did not understand what I wrote. If someone buys "out of your norm" volumes of what-ever because that someone heard there was going to be a shortage, that is hoarding. It is selfish and my logic is that behavior (all about me) is unfair to those who do not panic buy. It makes for shortages of goods that really are not in short supply (or weren't prior to panic buying) which then cheats others out of those goods.

    Sorry you do not see my logic but I don't see or understand today's lack of concern for others. That logic escapes me. So, there we are. This is not much reason to carry this further but you might look up the meaning of hoarding. It might help understand what I am referring to.

    You might feel differently if you are the one trying to find the items in short supply. If you were not around in the early 70s with the gas shortage, you have no clue.

    That was not hoarding per se but an example of a lack of an item.
