Has the hoarding slowed down?

Post by Janik » Sat Mar 28, 2020 12:06 pm

I haven't really been out to the stores lately, but other than the TP shelves along with certain cleaning supplies being empty, have things eased up where your at? Looking online, still looks like ammo and guns are being snatched up quickly. But there's still plenty to be hand from Glock and other big name brands. Just not much available to feed them right now though.

Where we are at, no known pantry shortages. I haven't been to the LGS in a while. But, some indoor ranges are open for shooting on every other lane.

At my local grocery store, all toiletries are slim pickings. Cleaners are hard to get and the meat department is under high stress. They have been out of ground beef for 2 weeks. All they have is steaks and roasts.

Have not been out. Granddaughter reports slim pickings on TP and wipes. Bread, milk and meat still out there.

Exact same thing here.

On the G&A side, Armslist and Gun Trader, yahoo’s trying to sell 9mm for upwards of $600.00 1k rounds. Taurus PT111 for $350.00 plus. Other low end guns at stupid prices.

Qas at grocery store this morning, tp/paper towels and cleaning goods are in low supply, they had no half and half.. otherwise most other things were coming back, saw ground beef for first time in a couple weeks along with alot of other meat choices. Haven't hit any gun places since my last report on Academy.

Wife hit up Wal Mart yesterday afternoon, got ground beef, taco shells, bread products, Mac and cheese, produce. Altogether, a pretty decent food haul. Still not so much with the TP though.

I was out to Aldi and Costco this week. TP, baby wipes and other cleaners and such were in limited supply if they were available at all. Those weren't on my list, anyway. There were plenty of signs limiting things to purchases of 1 or 2 items, but most things seemed to be in stock. Costco had its standard amount of bottled water, for a change.

Stopped by Sam's as I needed to restock my blue shop towels (heavier duty paper towels). Yep, they were snatched up too. So we left with $100 in booze instead :D

Me either. I've been stocking up over the last couple years as prices were decent. I'm still finding deals online for steel cased 9mm, but not brass. I've been shooting a lot more 22lr lately to conserve 9mm ammo.

I'm trying to hold off restocking that shelf. Costco's liquor store seemed fairly well stocked.

If you don't mind me asking , what did you end up paying for the steel cased ? I was just bidding on a case as well , I backed out after bidding 285 , it ended up selling for 300. I am pretty damn new to gun owning/buying , so I'm always sure about what I'm willing to spend , but I didn't want to go more than that just because it was steel cased , would've paid more if it was brass.

I paid $145, which is pretty typical for steel cased prices before the panic buying. If you don't mind waiting a couple weeks for it to come back into stock, you can order a case and wait for it to ship. I buy a lot of stuff from them, so I pay the yearly membership. https://www.sportsmansguide.com/product ... ?a=2218481

Funny that you posted that link ....... I just got done emailing them because they have some on gunbroker right now. Not everyone will ship to the liberal Commonwealth of Massachusetts, so I always have to ask prior to bidding.

Ahh, good point. I'm lucky here in Iowa, I have a ton of stuff shipped to my house. I forgot about the "not so free" states.

I happened to purchase 1500 rounds of 9mm steel cased a couple Fridays ago before I knew people were panic buying. Sitting home after my surgery and figured I'd add some 9mm since I've been shooting so much. Ordered Friday night, then Saturday morning noticed that they went from 3 paged of 9mm in stock to 1/2 a page. Didn't realize people were going nuts again over ammo. Glad I bought when I did.

If I knew the panic was going to happen would of ordered 2-3 cases instead, I do have plenty of 5.56 but let myself run real low on cheap steel case stuff my stash is all brass cased. If I'm just plinking steel targets i rather use the cheap steel stuff.
