Not condescending, I'm just amused. It's not a nightmare for me. I didn't like the situation the first time I ran low ad made sure that I haven't run low since. It's a nightmare for the unaware and those who planned poorly. You aren't psychic ? How about calibers not yet invented? For guns not yet invented? I think you miss the point of being prepared. Think what that means. If you are preparing for hurricane season and lay in a supply of food and water......do you really think it matters one bit that food "I haven't yet become interested in" wasn't what you stocked? Oh heck no. There will be that point where you would love an ice cold Coca Cola.....yet all you have is warm bottled water. Your neighbor has power and canned Cokes. What will you do? You ever think that a case of 9x19 might be trade fodder in the future for something you aren't interested in right now? Of the billions of rounds of .22 rimfire sold each year, "target" grade for small bore competition is a tiny fraction. Most rimfire is used for informal plinking and hunting. Oddly, that same target grade ammo can be used for plinking and hunting if needed. If small bore competition is your hobby, stock up on what you need at every opportunity. But good grief man, why buy what you don't need. Oddly I don't stock up pool chemical, pumps and pool furniture because I might install a pool in ten years. Thats faulty planning if not cray cray. Oh good grief. Maybe you should think about the consequences of switching before actual switching. It's not like theres no way to check availability and pricing of powder and components. Well of course its aggravating if you let it be aggravating. Not sure how old you are, but you don't always get everything you want, when you want it and how you want it. Life ain't Burger King. You have one person responsible for how ammunition and component shortages affect you. So really you're jealous of the fat old guy? Well bucko.........HE ain't running out of primers is he? He's probably posting about the ill prepared millennial that he met at a match. Sorry, I have no sympathy for you and am envious of your fat man.
