New shooters, they buy a box or two. When they go to the range they shoot a box or two.

They do this every single time, 100% agree. Yet the bulk of my stock was bought under Barry. The fear mongering increases prices and f's up demand. They will keep yelling all the while it normalizes. It's like people yelling when they have never invested in stock before. Pandemic + political fear mongering = prices and availability today. Meanwhile, when it hits rock bottom pricing (When I buy) people aren't buying anything.

this was mostly caused by covid and all of the civil unrest/riots/protests we had in 2020. the election just bumped it up a little more. comparing it to just another election year is idiotic.
