I must have missed the request. What do you need?
I guess I should have included the joking icon. I did not make any request, I was just being a smartass.

But thanks for asking, I appreciate that!


I was just playing along. Not that I wouldn't help you out if you were in dire need.

Absolutely not!

A friend that was a new gun owner, I'd sell a couple hundred round nose and 50 SD rounds @ 50-60¢ a round, still a 'good' price, but less than what I could replace it for. If I knew they were destitute, I'd give it to them.

Luckily most people know not to ask me a stupid question like that.

I did give away a couple hundred rounds on a local FB group with the only stipulation being that they either could not find or afford the ammo.

A friend asked me the other day when we were talking ammo. He was wondering what .50 cal rounds were selling for. I knew you had one.

The only person that gets a deal (free) on ammo is my 22 y/o college aged son. I would help my dad if needed, as he was late to get in the game but able to acquire a good supply in the last year at reasonable prices. I had to tell him to stop buying as prices got really high as I have plenty to spare if he needed it. Anyone else is on their own and wouldn’t know I’m stacked deep.

It's a hell of a thing... you can buy Lake City .50BMG - 4:1 linked in hundred round cans for 2.90/rd. That's less than the cheapest .380 Hornady Critical Defense I've been looking for.

Prices via ammoseek.com just now.

Same issue here. Friends keep asking me to sell them ammo at old prices.

I say nope, what I have is for me, shame on you for not stocking up when it was cheap......

Yep, and I can’t think of another caliber that is at pre-panic prices. I noticed that .50 is on the the list of items targeting for banning. I might have to buy some more just because I can.

Luckily I don’t have these kinds of requests but if I did, the answer would invariably be “sorry, I don’t have enough to sell any”. No matter how much you have it will always be true. I will give up a box of 50 rounds here and there for the truly needy though.

Similar thoughts come to mind when a friend told me he’s down to one week of firewood left. He normally goes to FL for a few months.

Now I like cutting firewood, for myself anyway. I already cut enough for others. My 2+ year wood supply didn’t just happen by accident.

The price of firewood mid-Winter isn’t the same as early Summer.
