    Well...you ordered it, when you'll get it remains to be seen. My most LGS told me that they are following orders to close down at 1700 tomorrow until advised otherwise. With that all else is irrelevant. Will UPS or the USPS even be delivering?

    They said on the site they are behind on shipping. Probably be at least a week or so. I just ordered to keep my YouTube channel stocked basically. Kinda hard to do a shooting video, with no ammo to shoot and I may have a T&E gun coming in next week.

I'm sure some stores in your area are in similar situations.

    All we have to do is report price-gougers to the Attorney General. I'm sure he'll set those greedy ammo-dealers straight.

    You're implying gun shops aren't essential.

    I wasn't necessarily talking about price gouging by individual shops. With so many people nationwide running out and buying guns and ammo, the wholesale price that gun shops are paying distributors has increased. The shop is going to have to pass along that cost to consumers.

    The 1000 round case of .223 you could have bought last week for $300 before it sold out will probably cost $40-50 more this week due to increased cost from the wholesaler. That's not unreasonable. Now $400? THAT'S GOUGING.

    I don't get it, the oil companies have been price gouging us and monopolizing the industry for as long as I can remember.

    I understand. I'm not necessarily expecting the Attorney General of PA to care about ammo dealers and price gouging. I think it would be interesting to hear his response to such a thing, though.
