GUN I am absolutely fucking SICK of looking for ammo

    Seriously...sick. I finally signed up for a gunbroker account hoping to find a somewhat reasonable deal considering EVERYONE is out with no light at the end of the tunnel.

    I found a couple of "OK" deals for 300 Blazer brass for $180 with a $20 flat rate shipping. Roughly $.33/round. Not bad I guess but I still can't bring myself to buy it. It's only 300 rounds...barely a semi-fun day at the range. So after my range fee, targets and $180 worth of ammo my day at the range would cost around $220.

    Plus most of those faggots want 3% added for paypal fees and one douche nozzle asked for 5%.

    The fleecing of America at it's best.

    if you use paypal, (if you want to be a dick) report them for charging fees...

    I'm looking for 9mm. Honestly around here it doesn't matter what caliber you need cause it's all in short supply. I'm just thankful I don't own anything in .380.

    The whole situation is just insanely frustrating.

    I use paypal both as a buyer and seller and I take my lumps for using them because it is convenient. If I reported all that I saw charging 3% there wouldn't be half the sellers there are now. Not in me to be that way anyway. I'll just be patient.

    On top of all your problems you can't do simple math either.

    I just stopped shooting until this ammo panic dies. It's looking like it's on the way out, and the panic prices are flat-out NOT sustainable.

    I'm gonna start hoarding brass from the few trips I have left to the range with the ammo I do have, save some cash for a new competition pistol and some reloading equipment and hopefully in the fall things will get better.


    Getting married in September so I don't have a ton of expendable cash but I got enough to hopefully keep the fun factor up.

    This. I haven't shot anything is awhile. Did one small range trip with 100 rnds of 9mm I found once with help from an OTer

    But I am pretty much sitting on what I have till people calm the fuck down.

    I know about 5 people who are just buying what they can to resale. Hell seems someone in this thread is doing that.
