This is getting OLD
I'm sick of everything being out of stock... STILL. I've been biding my time, patiently, waiting for stocks to replenish. Quite frankly I have a very hard time believing that "factories are running at 100% capacity".
That's a line that somebody heard, from someone else, from somebody else, that is completely qualitative. I'm sure that the normal ammo factories are running at their usual pace, or maybe plus 10% or something. But the idea that somewhere, someone "flipped a switch" and the country went into some sort of WW-II style production is a total myth, and there's nothing to back that idea up.
The idiots out there buying up crap at $1/round should have exhausted their supply of idiot money by now, and the idiots out there selling at $1/round should just about have enough cash to move out of their single-wide and into a nice 4-bedroom foreclosure that will house the rest of their blood-kin traveling gun show carnival crew that formerly worked the tea-cup ride.
Its MARCH and I can't find a decent box of plinker 5.56 to save my life, because every mall ninja, Rufio, and old retired bored 1911-toting paranoid guy on the planet is mortgaging their house in order to stash 50,000 rounds in their basement, because they have a Freudian fixation and childhood trauma that never got resolved, and a fantasy that either "zombies", or enough ammo that a dozen front-end loaders couldn't move, is actually going to save them when their two cartons of salteen crackers and a bottle of catsup runs out during the SHTF.
