To borrow (and adapt) from George Carlin... "Anyone who has more ammo than me is an ***hole. And anyone who has less than me is an idiot."
I had been buying ammo regularly for the last four years, or so (before the frenzy). I figured I was hedging against future price increases and possible shortages. Ammo doesn't spoil / go bad. I'll eventually use it... or pass it on.
I'm fairly well-stocked. So, does that make me a "hoarder?" Or, am I just SMART?
When prices go back down... I'll be buying more. But, for now I'm comfortably SITTING TIGHT. I can't believe people are paying $90+ for a brick of .22LR!! Crazy.
PS... A friend of mine recently bought his first pistol for home defense, a Glock 17. He asked me where he could buy ammo. The answer was, basically, "nowhere." I asked if he was looking for FMJ or HP (for defense). He replied, "anything." I then discovered that he had an empty gun at home with zero ammo. So, I GAVE him a box of Federal HST. I wouldn't want to know that my friend might be left defenseless in a bad situation... and I could have helped. In exchange, he took me to lunch! Works for me! :-)
