Gougers really suck. I suspect it's now time for the gouger defenders to lecture us on how it is just the free market. I would like to think that it is just a typo but these (low road descriptor) were at a recent gun show that I went to and they were gouging there too.

They're free to charge whatever they want, but they're now added to my list of companies with which I'll never do business.

This shortage is really showing what sellers care about their customers and which ones will do anything for a buck. I'll just remember after it all blows over, and support the retailers who didn't try to stick it to me. I dont' mind someone raising their prices in a market flush with excess profits, but there's a limit. Past that, you'll never win back my business.

Wow, I guess I've got 10s of thousands of dollars of that ammo sitting in my reloading room right now.

I was hoping it was a typo, but they also have a 20rd box for 24.99, and .223 is $2 or more a round.

That's why it's time to lay off the buying, let the prices come down.
Dry fire exercises, physical fitness, get those accessories you've been meaning to get, brush up on your gunsmithing, etc. until things calm down (which they already are starting to but not fast enough in my opinion).

Gee. I thought this was a serious thread. Maybe they are advertisers. I have no idea. Their price is absolutely ridiculous unless they mean a "case" of 10-bulk packs.

Yeah. You better line up and get some of that.

...it's now time for the gouger defenders to lecture us on how it is just the free market.
How is it not the free market? If it's not the free market, then what is it?

Free market = they are free to price it and you are free to buy or not to. 'Free market' does not mean it is an ideal utopia of affordable deals. Even at ridiculous prices, even with unethical business practices, the market is still operating freely. Nobody's defending gouging by calling a freely operating market, a 'free market'; that's simply what it is. If it isn't a free market, it would be a 'regulated market' or a 'restrained market' or a 'bound or suppressed market' or a 'forced market'. But that's not what we see here. Nobody is regulating that company's price. Nothing is restraining that retailer's price. There is no external pressure that is forcing that business to price that box how they have. The priced it of their own free accord.

So how could you call it anything other than a free market?

It wouldn't be a free market if the government priced their products for them or if we were forced to buy it from them.

It's certainly not a logical way to do business, it's reckless and self destructive actually, but how is this not an example of the market operating freely?

As much as the gouging instinctively irks me, anyone selling 22LR at $30/550 would be sold out immediately. I'd rather have the option of buying at $0.50 a round than the alternative, which would be none available at any price. I won't be buying at that price -- but if the alternative was to cancel a match or hunting trip, it's nice to know the option is there.

Let me ask you this, is anyone out there willing to offer a bunch of 550 round packs for $40 each? $50 each? I'm guessing that unless you are already sitting on 10's of k of rounds (what was that about hoarding?), you're not real eager to part with your stock either. You'd probably think real hard about it if I offered you $250, though. Does that mean you are gouging?

There is a reason that everyone has high prices but ammo in stock, or regular prices and out of stock -- the current market conditions don't allow anything else.

Punishing a seller for gouging by never going back is perfectly reasonable -- you are using your long term business as a negotiating tactic, which makes sense. People that raise their prices 500% are indeed focusing on very short term customer relationships. Just don't fall for the illusion that someone who has ammo in stock at huge prices would also have ammo in stock if they charged lower prices.

Free idea of the day. Start an ammo auction site. AmmoBay.com

February 8, 2013, 03:20 PM
Do people actually buy at those prices? I guess if you just bought your first .22lr or AR you might spend more on ammo, but I wouldn't think they could sell much at those prices

Cricoid
February 8, 2013, 03:52 PM
Can someone start a running list of these gouging businesses? I've just added this one to my list, along with CheaperThanDirt. I'd love to see a running list made into a sticky so I'll know who to NEVER send money to ever again.

I bought a .22 FEG pistol about a month ago, and was asked twice (once by the guy that got it out for me and once by the woman that checked me out) if I needed ammo for it. I responded to both that I had more "in stock" than they did, having already noticed their bare .22 shelf.

That is the craziest pricing I have seen. People should boycott this company for such. I won't buy anything from them, ever. Maybe they will have an "after the panic sale" and offer a 5 for 1 price. I work in south Texas and there are several places that are the same way in pricing their stuff. Should go price some stuff at the gunshows in San Antonio. Unbelievable.

That's what friends are for. Those of us who do have some 22LR available would certainly not miss 500 or 1000 rounds of the common stuff. But that does not mean we are going to put it up for sale either. My ammo cabinet door is open as I type this and I suspect I see at least 30K rounds plus there are more stored elsewhere.

February 9, 2013, 03:57 PM
Im all for capitolism, Price gouging can often times come with that. From what i know, when the supply is low, the demand, even on the retailer's, side gets very high, So... What it comes down to is that the retailers end up paying sufficiently more due to the demand... But 250 for a box of .22lr? Seriously? Thats taking it to a whole new level. This company obviously doesnt know its customer very well, and will likely go out of business unless they start selling stuff at cost ;)

Wallmart yesterday 223 12 dollars for 20 rounds of 556. 60 cents a round winhester white box 55 grain 3 box max, bring the family and pick up a dozen boxes or just go in and out a few times, also had plenty of shotgun shells for about 60cents each, considering the gun show was 1.09 for AR and $2 bucks for 12 gauge buck, this was a bargain, also 45 was 22 a box for federal 230 grain. It gets put out every night at 8 pm in Vero Beach.
How or why anyone regaurdless of how much money they have would pay that much for ammo is beyond me. It's insulting.

bdgackle
February 9, 2013, 06:53 PM
What have we gained by them taking the items down? Satisfaction? The loss of the ability to identify and boycott? If they had a source of stock, it will be on gun broker. For all we know, that is how they got stock in the first place.

I really struggle with this. On an instinctual level, gouging makes me mad. I just can't make that feeling match logic though.

I think the illusion is this: I see items in stock. I want them at a fair price, but fail to recognize that were they at a fair price, they'd be in someone's stockpile and not in stock.

We tend to forget that all transactions are really auctions in disguise. Set prices at stores are a shortcut to that for time efficiency, not a replacement. The supply curve has not changed - if anything, the manufacturers are stepping UP production and shops are working harder to find stock. The demand curve HAS shifted. The "blame" lies with anyone who actually pays these prices.

Is it also immoral to buy ammo at 35 cents a round, when we would be willing to pay 50? When this bubble bursts, will it be immoral to take advantage of the resulting deals? If someone offers 50% of pre-Sandy prices dumping excess ammo, will you insist on paying more? Sellers seek to maximize price, buyers seek to minimize. Do these actions differ ethically? If so, how? My gut tells me they do... but I wonder if this is one of those rare cases where my gut is flat wrong.

I like their quantity discount on the Blazer Brass 9mm.

If you buy a case, 1000 rounds, you get a 0.9% discount. If you buy half a case you get a 0.4% discount.

I don't believe I've ever seen any business advertise a discount of under 1% before.
