In a distinct and positive albeit minor move against the ammunition hoarding and speculating freaks, a local gun shop has taken a positive stand to put a kink in their tails. The owner of the one-man shop, who I will call Bob as he is not the type to call attention to himself, runs one of the largest ammunition and reloading supply shop in this half of the state. He has always put customers first by not gouging them as practically all gun shops do. When he has a price increase on his latest order, he does not rush to mark up his existing stock to reflect the new price increase, he allows it to be sold at the marked price and the increase is only marked on the new stock. He has been disturbed over the price gouging and hoarding freaks buying up all of the .22 ammunition and leaving legitimate .22 owners with nothing to shoot. He started by limiting buyers to one box at a time and since he knows most of his customers, he can control the hoarding freaks. He makes sure that he has at least one box available for each .22 rifle buyer. As a move to stop those speculating freaks who buy up all of the .22 LR ammunition and then rush to sell it on the internet at elevated prices, he has instituted a policy of allowing the freaks to buy .22 LR ammunition but they receive the ammunition in plastic baggies, not the boxes. The speculating freaks no longer even come into his shop since he instituted this practice.
