Im glad to live in a Capitalist country And if you are selling 5.56 ammo for outrageous profits you are a piece of shite person.

If you are selling 9mm for 50c per rd or more you are a piece of shite person.

Its certainly not gouging if its not food water or fuel at this point, its just being an assholeshitperson.

Lol. Enjoy your rewards.

They're not gougers, scalpers is a more appropriate term.

Opinions are like a**holes, everyone has one.

So, why get upset over this? I go by what I am willing to pay.
Sure somebody might be asking a certain price...offer then what you are willing to pay. If they get offended, then thats their problem and that comes with selling things privately. They also have the right to say no and hold out for the price they want. Nobody is forcing anyone on here to spend their money and nobody is forcing anyone to purchase items. Not sure what all the fuss is about &#129335;&#8205;&#9794;&#65039;

Well said brother. Some are getting mad because they got caught with their pants down and now can't find any ammo "dirt cheap". I only started selling mine after a coworker "begged" for me to sell him a few being he got tired of driving around looking for them. If they don't like the $$, then just move on and keep looking. I'm still looking for another SP5K-PDW that retailed for $2800, but I'm not getting all bent out of shape because people are selling them for over $5k

You need to teach that common sense.

I probably have more .22 ammo than most people other than hoarders in the country and a reasonable amount of other common but not available calibers and that is a known fact among friends and co-workers; you help one person and the info spreads like wild fires. During good times, I get labels. During bad times, I get requests for ammo. I even had people asking me for hunting ammo and I thought hunters keep 100+ rds on hands all the time. Friends still get free ammo from me but co-workers and acquaintances will be turned down as I donít want to sell to them at my reasonable prices. I want them to hustle or pay the scalpers. I sell my excess in bad times as I tend to stumble upon calibers I must have. I ask reasonable price below market because I donít do this for living and rather not drive all over town to sell a box so my prices are wholesale; e.g $0.09 per round of match .22 while others charg $0.15 for standard ammo.

I am buying tcm.22 with both fiat now. I just need to find a way to convert my G17 to shoot that with only a barrel swap instead of the whole upper receiver. Either that or buy a rifle. If onky I was in a gun business, I have tons of million-dollars ideas.

Sound like someone didnít prepare for the winter.

$0.50 per 9mm is cheap now. Just wait until ubc is required for ammo purchase, everything will double right before people go radio silence.

Sorry guy but supply and demand determine the price of ammo. If I were to sell it to you at last year's fair price you would turn right around and resell it. If I were to sell you ammunition I sure would be paying attention to the replacement cost of getting ammunition.
Sorry but the world is not a nice place.

Just so you know I have no intention of selling anyone ammunition.

For some of you I have cheese and crackers to go with your ďwhineĒ!


Now, I know some of you have 401k/stocks/gold/silver/vintage car and a home.
SO, now letís replace ammo with any of the above. Do you still feel the same?

If so, Iíll sell 9mm/5.56 ammo for $0.25 and $0.50 a rd respectively, however I only accept pre 1964 quarters.


Please send pics and we can arrange a FTF

Not all but many on guntrader are about flipping and gouging someone anyway , but yet are the first ones to try to shoot someone else to pieces on price or trade just so they can flip it for more , but thatís just the way it is , you just ignore them and use your regulars that you know arenít trying to screw someone over , there is good people on here that are enthusiasts and traders and arenít about making a buck , far few and in between but they are here .

So everyone knows Cabelas at Short Pump in Richmond had a ton of ammo today. 9mm was abundant at $.32 cpr. 223 was $.65. 22lr was $.08. When this marketplace is flooded with $.70 9mm herters just know they paid $.32 today.

As of today I dont see any relaxing. Look at Ammoseek for 357 magnum. $4.00 per round. 6.5 Creedmoor about the same. WTF?

On a separate note theres a guy advertising her who Ive contacted 3 times, told him Id pay his price and drive to his location and he hasnt had the curtesy to return my comm's. I reckon he doesnt want to seel it very badly.

Cabela's out in Gainesville has ammo regularly, buut if you don't want to wait in a line of 200-300 people or can't afford to spend several mornings a week just for the possible chance of getting ammo (9mm specifically) it makes perfect sense to save your time (aka your money) by paying a bit more through an FTF private sale. I don't think it's gouging when I've spent 2 and a half hours waiting to see what's left and then recouping some of the cost while giving others ammo cheaper than online sources. It's a matter of convenience imho. Get what you're saying, but have to disagree when anyone can line up if they have time or want to.

To everyone looking for ammo. Iím retired and pretty much head to cabellas when I can with the money I. Have to put on here for below what gun stores sell it for. But not cabellas because I drive an hour. Wait in line. Freeze my **I VOTED FOR BIDEN** off trying to find your orders just to find out you canít afford it when I inflate for gas and time spent. There are good people on here and Iím one. If you need a caliber. Let me know. How much of it you want. And if they have it I will grab it. Text me at 6035718293. I build fix and sell ammo and guns as a hobby. Retired vet. Itís just a side hustle and a hobby to keep me busy. Sorry to say that tomorrow I will not be able to get any ammo as I do not have the funds but I do have some 556 green tip if not sold tomorrow. And will have 1000 rounds of 9 here in a day or two which is gold where I live. Donít get mad at the sellers unless you spend as much time and gas as we do trying to help you guys out. At least I am. Just remember. Time is money and if I spend 4 hours of my day in line fighting people for ammo. Getting there to find out ammo isnít available. Ship it from out of state for you guys. This is at my expense so you guys can shoot. Ease up fellas or get the ammo on your own. Only so many of us are on here to help. Just find the good ones. Iím located in Woodbridge but once again. If you need a caliber. Or looking for guns. Need things fixed or just want me to spice up your piece Iím here to help. Have fun shooting boys and girls and look for when I post ammo cheap. Means Iím getting rid of it and making another run around Virginia to find you guys what you need. Happy shooting

Oh and hereís perspective. It cost me ten in gas to get there. 3 hours in line because I always get there first. And 5 hours of my day driving to people homes to bring them the ammo. Not only am I getting it. I deliver it. If thatís not service you guys want then I donít know how else to help you and no Iím not selling it for what the price is if when I get it for. People are asking 45 dollars for a box of 9i ask 35 for good ammo and 40 for 124 grain when I find it and if your a regular you get discounts. I just sold 300 45 for 220 and shipped it to Texas for a friend because of their shortage. Just be happy you have ammo here. Go to another state. They donít have it. Lastly. If you call me before 7 tomorrow and have money in hand. Tell me what you need. I will make a run because cabellas will have a shipment tomorrow. I leave exactly at 7 am so call me by 6 630. Hopefully your on the way to Gainesville and Iíll grab it. Iím already up so feel free to call at anytime from now till 7. 6035818293. I donít have money to front ammo tomorrow so this is just a friendly favor. If you need it. Call me. Happy shooting everyone. We all love our guns. Letís quit **I VOTED FOR BIDEN** about how much more we like to shoot em.

That's hilarious. You are the good guy. I guess you don't realize that if all of you "good guys" weren't doing that, there would be ammo on the shelf for everyone to buy.
And no, I'm not bitter, because I know how to buy ammo. Which is, buy it after the runs, not during. I have what I need, as well as supplies for loading.

It does appear that some prices are coming down a little for certain ammo. Starting to see closer to .50-.60ct per round on generic 5.56 instead of the .80+. 12ga Buckshot still very high but can be found for closer to $1 per round if you look around.
