    I was at Elysburg, Pa. yesterday and a components vendor told me that shot prices are going to rise in the near future.

    Of course they will. The price of fuel is on the rise again. See how great "change" is?

    Not to worry guys.. With our new deal.. When we get done with a EPA lead tax.. A government imposed primer tax.. The hazmat fee for moving powder or primer on a Federal highway.. and our dollar being devalued.. a bag of shot will be back up to $40.00 soon.. $50.00 by reelection time.. and if he gets back in..our dollar will be devalued even more.. When the Chineese start dumping dollars.. a bag of shot will be $80 to $100... Stock up now..the worst is ahead of us.. We've only yet begun to see change we can believe in..Or.. as I hold my ankles.. looking at the KY..and moan.. That's ENOUGH change..

    Don't forget to add Cap and Trade Tax, it takes fuel to produce heat to melt lead, this tax alone will put a lot of businessess (of all kinds) out of business.

    Maybe lead will go up, maybe down.

    Say Toolmaker...aren't you the dolt who predicted car batteries would be $450 by now?

    Guess what, I bought a new top-of-the-line battery last week for $79.95

    Yeah that's you, the commodities expert. LMAO!

    charliep, You got the wrong toolmaker. I like your saying "maybe it will go up, and maybe it will go down. Personally, I think you go down.
