You don’t need to be a wackadoo to appreciate agorism.
I’m classy though, my tinfoil hat is a fedora
Relating it to guns, its happening to everyone right now. Shared misery.
Build up your treasures in heaven. Seems to me that anonymous good deeds are always noticed by the Guy Who Counts. But it's also good to spread the word that good deeds feel good anyhow.
Just a note, Not all shops charging insane prices have changed their mark up, some of them are paying the insane prices themselves. I have literally seen people walk into a shop and ask for a specific gun and then ask "got any ammo for it" and when told no they leave. It's hard to move guns without ammo.
The difference is having the choice.
I kid I kid.
Yeah do a good thing because it’s the right thing to do. It’s a good way to live.
Personally I find bartering to be excellent practice.
In keeping with that - Always go to other people's funerals , otherwise they won't come to yours.
I AM not referring to anybody here. Just a general statement.
FTF, one on one , no vultures picking your pocket.
Good ol' Yogi!
What's wrong with barter if everybody ends up with what they wanted ? That's how they did it in the Good Old Days in the pre-cash economy.
At the same time I think we need to be careful and not judge a business owner by the same standard as an enthusiast. The business owner is there for one reason and one reason only; to make a profit. This is not a hobby or a sport for them. A good business owner knows how to throw in some extras here and there but he can only be so generous. He has to keep the lights on, the staff paid, and the shelves stocked. I want them to survive so in times of extraordinary demand I would expect their prices to rise, that way when things return to normal I have a gunshop to visit instead of a boarded up vacant building. Remember, this is a time of high demand, not short supply.
At this weekend’s gun show small pistol primers were marked $200-225 per brick (1000). Instead of scalping a couple of spare bricks by selling them at the gun show, I offered to swap them to a buddy cowboy action shooter for some .22 LR. We are both happy with the trade.
