    That might change a few opinions on the benefits of rolling your own! We are starting to see $35/bag West Coast shot here in NV. Hope the trend continues.

    Little testy today Sportshot?

    What I was actually wondering was if this is some kind of special deal with a 1 bag limit, or the actual, normal price.

    I still think it a pity, when it is thought of as a "bargain" to see $30.00 / bag shot. It only goes to show how successful American businesses (rapers) have become at mind-manipulation of the consumer.

    Escalate the cost to a level that defies explanation, and then lower that cost by 10 or 15 %. They'll think it is a "great deal", and buy lots more of it.....

    We STILL win over the fools. Perfect strategy.

    I suppose everyone would be singing the praises of ExxonMobil, if gasoline fell to $3.29 / gallon, too !

    Thank you Wolfram. Worth the drive to Fallon for that price. I just paid 39 a bag in California and thought that was a great deal.

    If you wish to see the price drop even lower refuse to buy it at $30 for a $25lb bag and wait until the price drops to $25 for a $30lb bag of shot.

    If you wait they will realize that it is a consumer dictated market instead of a manufacture dictated market.

    I doubt you can justify much road time on the lower priced shot but if you do end up in Fallon, bring a shotgun and check out our range. We are open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoon (1:00-?) and first& third Sundays.

    If the economy, fuel...etc. keeps going the way it is, I think shot will fall lower than I have seen it in 30 years. Shot has the possibility of selling way less than $10.00 a bag!

    Rifle Guy - Let me try that one. Discretionary income is reduced as fuel & food prices increase. Virtually all of the shooting sports are funded with discretionary income. Hence lower demand = lower prices.

    Shot is about as far away from a necessity as you can get. Not that I believe it, but the stock market is talking about $15.00 and more for a gallon of gas. Food may follow in it's tracks. If all this comes true, recreational shooting will only be a memory. The price of lead continues to fall because different alternatives are used to fill the need mainly because of the dangers involved of its long term effects. If nobody is shooting there will be absolutely no demand for shot.

    Mark R,

    I read an article today about $10-$15 gas, like you I don't want to believe it. But your right if that does occur nobody will give a hoot what a bag of shot costs. Perhaps we should stock up on OO buck loads and non perishable food. Generally I'm pretty optimistic but it's getting pretty scarey out there.

    We along with other nations rely heavily on oil for every manufacturing process there is not to mention direct use for transportation. Oil companies and all others that generate income through the sale of oil all and its byproducts are well aware of this and I'm not sure there is a stopping point. One of the worst things I am seeing going on right now is oil companies trying to get involved in alternative fuels. They are robbing us blind now and it will continue with the monopoly of alternative fuels if they get a grip on it.
