Human nature to a degree. I hoard some food items like coffee, by buying whenever I can get it at 5 bucks or less. So I don't run out of coffee and have to pay 8.99. I don't clean out the shelves when a good deal comes up, either. I leave some for other people.
I suppose I would have bought a bunch of rimfire if I had known the extent of the stupidity but I have 2 boxes of 525.
It's another leap to the gouging syndrome, which is basically greed at work. Greed is not a good emotion, look at Washington DC.
I bought 3 bags of Starbucks coffee at Costco when they had $5 coupon. But I don't turn around and sell them at regular price.
Yesterday at the gun show (where that picture was taken), I bought tickets for my friend who drives, using my coupons for both.
But he went to ticket booth while I was talking to the NRA guys, now I have an extra ticket in my hand, instead of going to the ticket booth for a questionable refund, I asked a woman walking from parking lot to the ticket booth, offered her my extra ticket at after coupon price. And told her I'll go in the gate with her, give me money after she gets in.
She hand me the money without a second thought. And thank me for the discount price. Everyone's happy, except the gun show made $1 less. LOL
The WalMart just north of where I live has .22 on Tuesday morning when they restock the ammo inventory ... I have plenty so I don't bother going up there to get some but they do get it in every week ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
