I'm a prepper He's a prepper She's a prepper Wouldn't you like To be a prepper, too? For heavens sake, people, distribution channels for every product shipped by truck and warehoused in "hard-lock-down states" are so messed up by the plandemic debacle it will be a year before washing machine parts and integrated circuit boards catch up to smokeless powder. We can't get medical equipment shipped across the country because traditional trucking firms have cancelled routes that go through states that quarantine when the driver crosses the border. Add to that several MILLION new gun owners, several MILLION new ammo purchasers, several MILLION new reloaders... we went from being a small community to nearly half the country over-night. And then there are the things we can't discuss on this board because it's a dot-org and not allowed to permit those discussions without shutting down threads... It's going to get worse before it gets better. I'm sorry if you were the happy, care-free grasshopper instead of the diligent, hard-working ant but that's life. Even I got caught a little short on some supplies and have excess of others because my income ran short and my non-shooting-related bills ran way long in 2019/20. It happens. Don't buy from scalpers but don't complain about the guy who does. Live and let live.
