That's why after the last component/ammo scare I canceled my account with them and have not bought anything from them since. There is a difference between supply and demand vs tripling prices of items already on the shelf just to get extra.I don't have an issue with people getting what they can for what they have. The old supply and demand thing. But, some places who are gouging should be remembered when this is over. Cheaper than Dirt is one that comes to mind. Texas AG has fined/sued them a couple of times.
Ctd also had allegedly after sandy hook canceled orders and made folks replace the orders at the hiked prices due to an alleged system issueThat's why after the last component/ammo scare I canceled my account with them and have not bought anything from them since.

+1Easy solution. Just let them sit. Hopefully we all can hold out with our stashes until things get back to the new normal. Like said, it’s a free country, they can ask whatever they want and we can let them sit.
This is true, primarily due to the increased cost of raw materials to the manufacturers. While I doubt we'll see $30/1k again for primers, over time they will probably drop into the $40-50/1k range. Hopefully while I'm still kickin' and in need of them.I did notice that the listed price for powder and primers at reputable dealers, even though they are out of stock, are about double of what they were before the craziness hit( primers that were $30-35/1000 now are $60-65/1000 at Graf’s) I guess this will be the new normal when supplies do become available.
I don't agree with investigating them because that's what the free market is all about, but we don't HAVE to buy from these price gougers either. IF buyers would avoid them they would go out of business & dry up, but the problem is that there is always someone who is willing to pay their super inflated prices & all that does is embolden them to keep doing what they do.These Businesses price gouging their customers, should be investigated. But we all know there will be nothing done about it as it has to do with "Guns". If it were another item then an investigation would be called for.
