    Angry i got price gouged today

    I went to Lens ammo shop on Michigan street in South Bend today. Three days ago a brick of 22LR (500 rounds) of blazer was $20. Today I go to Lens after work and said I would like a brick of 22LR, he went and got it, rang me up and said "That will be $35." I said "What? It was $20 three days ago!!!" Len said "That was last weeks prices, everybody else is gouging so I should make a buck doing it to." Well, I still needed it, I'm not stocking up, just want to go shooting with the family tomorrow, so I paid the $35 and now I've just been on the slow burn, and I'm really pissed. I've gone there a few times even though I am really new to guns (First time shooting was 6 months ago, now I own a m&p22 and a m&p9), talked with Len a few times before, but this taking advantage of a customer really surprised me. All this demand and craziness will slow down and come to an end eventually, but Lens made his final sale with this customer today. So if anyone knows of some other ammo suppliers in the area please respond with who. Also if you do reloading and have 9mm or 22LR for sale send me a message with your contact info. Next time I need ammo I will give you a call. What do you think, am I overreacting, or is my rage justified???

    Your rage is not justified.

    He had a product for sale, and you paid his asking price.

    All the whining about prices is getting old.

    That's craziness.
    I was at Bass Pro Shop in Clarksville. They had their same old .... ok prices on ammo but very thing was damn near gone! (as far as handgun ammo, I'm talking). I noticed that there was more .40 left than 9 or 45, which I thought was interesting (and good for me). Lots of empty shelf space there.

    I get the supply and demand thing, but people (consumers) are still going nuts. (Yes, I did pick up some ammo too).

    No its justified. When I call shops today and check price on 9mm ammo and they tell me 20$ a box, I say SERIOUSLY?! and they say yes ammo is going up and I say OK thanks and hang up. Its frustrating. Its the principal that I am frustrated at. Needless to say I have not bought any ammo in about a month.

    As previously stated, no one said you had to pay the rediclous prices. start reloading and doing for yourself and the prices won't make you shed so many tears..

    Your rage is justified, but it's toward the wrong party...

    It wasn't his fault you were in the position of "needing" it for your next outing tomorrow...

    I learned in the late 80's/early 90's not to run myself out of primers.... If I got caught again, I could only blame myself...

    stopped by our LGS and they had boxes of 9mm Blazer for $39...

    Also had mil surp AR-15 mags for $25-$39.

    I'm not complaining though, they sell what people will pay for it.
