    I walked in the other day killing some time. Prices were through the roof not sure how they sleep at night charging what they do for ammo. If you need it they got it but you better be ready to sell your first born for a box of ammo.

    I would guess they're having to pay significantly increased prices to get it, not to mention lower stock PLUS higher price means lower movements of stock. In order to maintain the storefront, rent, insurance and utilities, pay previous obligations and keep the same or similar staff, they need to make more per unit than before, since less units are moving.

    I'm not saying they're NOT gouging, but it's very possible they're not gouging as much as people think - not like Dong's does 24/7/365, for instance.

    <edit> For instance, I just checked and sgammo.com is selling 9mm Winchester FMJ "Active Duty" at $0.80/round and LE JHP 9mm at $1.24/round. And no one's ever accused them of being gougers. They're no CTD, for sure.

    Similarly, their .40 S&W JHP is $2/round and there is NO .45ACP. Armscor .22 JHP is $0.60/round and .44 Magnum is $2-2.30/round.

    I walked around the Chickasha military crap/gun show yesterday. Stupid prices. 9mm $1 to $1.25 fir ball, 45 long colt my buddy was looking for $1.50 and up per round. And even more stupid prices on guns. Wasted my $10. Never again, it was my last attendance. I had not been to a gun show in over 20years till 4 years or so ago. 25 years ago they started getting stupid. A guy could find something here and there, but all of them except Wannemachers ain’t worth the price of admission now days.

    Gun world was very proud of their inventory the last time I went in there, and if questioned about how they came to that price you needed to be prepared to not come back, lol. That was almost 13 years ago and I haven’t been back since. Hopefully they got their ventilation system updated, I always liked the gun range there.

    I went to Chickasha yesterday as well, I walked back in my garage with empty hands for the first time in my gun show life. Nice stuff down there but I was surprised at some of the prices.

    Mostly a militaria show but it makes me curious if all gun shows are in the same ballpark, pricing wise?

    Gunworld prices with no pandemic and ample supply is typically double what sgammo is. After Sandy Hook I went in to kill some time and bricks of 22 were $90. Their were literally a half dozen price stickers. I'm guessing everytime they sold one they raised the price to see what the ceiling was.

    Same here. I went twice, years and years ago. Hell, back then they were 40% higher on guns and ammo.
    Never stepped foot in since.

    We made more money selling 9mm at $8-10 per box than we do now at $45. Not even percentage, actual dollars. And we sell extraordinarily more now. Nobody wanted it until they couldn't buy it lol

    These were taken July of last year, I cant even imagine what they're up to now. I think the place is just a front so they can write it off for the taxes. I refuse to give them any business, but every few years I'll walk in for a good laugh and then leave.
