    Maybe a rant

    Looking in the "Classifieds" see a listing for primers.

    Yes, there is shortage. A shortage created, in part, by a perfect storm. A shortage magnified and extended by the lowest of slimey, pond scum, neckbeard scalpers.

    The pond scum posting in the classifieds, JOINED YESTERDAY and posted the ad.

    I would think / hope, the admins would ban such activity.

    The shortage will get better, it is improving, daily.

    I wish the regular members are prepared and stocked well enough, to not be buying at scalper pricing.

    The moderators' hands are more/less tied on this issue.

    The owner (Okuma) has made it pretty clear that there will be no requirements for posting in the classifieds.

    His site, his rules... :drunk2:

    I was looking at another post and this new seller dragged me in....I , I ....it was as if by magic I was drawn in and couldn't help it. It's not like I could simply not look, and if I looked I could simply not buy.

    Please, please, filter these postings because it causes me such emotional trauma. My God, I don't know how I'll make it through the day now.

    I see it and move on. No a chance in hell that I will pay the amount he/she are asking. If no one buy he will move along, or I least I hopping. If he wanted to sell quick he will be selling in GB.

    Before you judge people too harshly, keep in mind they have to pay inflated prices for whatever they buy with the proceeds. For example, I sold some of my stockpiled M855 for $1 a round, then turned right around and paid $1 a round for plinking ammo. Why? Because I can't shoot steel plates with M855.

    Why didn't I trade? I tried that with some premium 9mm HPs. Wanted to trade them 1 to 3 for plinking ammo. Which is actually a pretty fair deal because they were going for almost $4 a round. Every yahoo on the internet wanted to trade 1 to 1 for PMC or Tulammo. I don't know if people are just that rude or if they're just new and legitimately don't understand the difference. Either way, trading in this market isn't an option, unless you like being frustrated and answering phone calls from people who want to buy three rounds.

    We honestly do understand your frustration, but the classifieds are pretty much wide open. I see a lot of these "1-post guys" post up their overpriced junk too; but it is not against the site owner's rules, and we are not allowed to police the ads for prices anyway. So we have to let it be unless we see enough evidence to the contrary. There is also no way for us to read every post made; it would simply be overwhelming. We pretty much have to rely on the OSA Members reporting suspicious activity or posts. We are able to catch and screen some, but I'm sure many just get a new User Name and come back for another shot at cheating someone.

    When a 1-post guy wants you to send him money by PayPal Friends and Family, and you do...expect to have just tossed that money in the trash.

    Yes, they also joined last week and just out of curiosity I messaged them and ask about the issue of having to ship from TEXAS where they claim they are) and never got a response.
