If it does I would bet it will be awhile. Shot is $27.50 here, tax included.
Gas is dropping per barrel on crude, yet our pump price just jumped 11 cents a gallon. Shot may be slow on the dropping thing like gas--who knows. If it does hit $20.00 I bet a bunch of us stockup. Colonel
In the late 70's shot was going for about $10.00 per bag. For what ever reason it shot up to over $20.00 per bag. Back then that was high as hell. In time it dropped back down to $11.00 per bag. I just hope it does the samething this time.
Wait for the new administration to stick its new fuel taxes on our fuel. Its "green agenda" will be applied to all, so called, pollutants. Lead???? Califorina's Henry Waxman will be the driving force on green issues.
A fellow shooter in Louisiana offered Star brand shot to me for $20.25 per bag FOB Houston. If they can make it in Peru and ship it for less than $20.00 I will bet Mayco Industries (they own Lawrence Brand and West Coast) is selling it to the wholesalers for considerably under $20.00 per bag.
Keep im mind that the automotive industry takes 85% of the lead production and auto sales have fallen off of a clif! If you believe in supply and demand the price of shot should continue down through all of 2009. Production cost right now is about $13.00 per bag.
I'll buy again at less than $17.50; got enough to wait it out. Hopefully, I'll be able to buy it before these anti-gunners attempt to screw us. Maybe if we lucky, every pellet won't have to be inscribed. Darrell
That was delivered to our club. I don't know exactly what kind of discount we get or even if we do but we got in an order last Thursday of powder, wads, primers, shot and clay birds and that was the price of the shot. Jackie B.
