How do you feel about the current Healthcare and prescription costs?
well, that is not a gouging- it is an inverted socialism, where a subsidised public free care gets compensated by boosting prices on paying customers.

1. I meant that for the sake of ammo costs, and more specifically meeting the demand/price equilibrium.
2. Prescription medication can be expensive. Until there's an alternative and cheaper solution, that's the cost. Perhaps look in to what is causing the high prices in the first place. There's obviously a high demand for it.

How do you feel about Martin Shkreli then?
Very misunderstood. The media doesn’t get their facts right and defame him for nothing.
1. The drug daraprim is not used for treating HIV, it’s not even a widely used critical medicine. It’s for a rare encephalitis from toxoplasmosis that’s not even used in the US anymore.
2.He doesn’t charge patients, he charges the insurance companies. The whole notion that he’s pricing out patients is false. Those that don’t have insurance he gives it for free. And no, high cost daraprim is not driving up healthcare costs.

back on topic, healthcare gouging comes from rules and regulations that interfere with the free market. Hospitals negotiate exorbant rates for treatment that a private practitioner would receive a fraction.

the ammo situation is 100% free market. Demand is far outweighing the supply. Those that invested beforehand are putting their goods for sale and those that agree on a price for not being prepared pay for it. When ammo prices stabilize, that’s our lesson to stock up.

Wife wanted to go to cabelas today. So i went to ammo area and all they had was 2 of these boxes which had just been returned for some reason. I grabbed them before 3 other guys behind me wanted them. Walking to cashier I find a $25 gift card on ground. Used it to get this ammo. Cost me net $8.50😀

Cabelas was always a little pricier for ammo before all this, but I haven't noticed a huge shift in their price now. I also haven't found too much I've wanted so maybe I just didnt notice

I'm willing to bet like $.02 that Cabelas negotiated a price per round with the manufacturers for a period of time and a guaranteed amount of rounds to be delivered to stores across the US. They have their profit margin built in and kept it at that same percentage during this contract.

2.He doesn’t charge patients, he charges the insurance companies.

................................
Ever hear of exclusions on an insurance company formulary? I ran into outright denials, through appeals, with Express Scripts when I needed Neupogen (or a biosimilar) for neutropenia because I did not have cancer. The drug was approved only for use to relieve neutropenia caused by chemo, not due to other causes. No, you will NOT get a drug paid by insurance even if you really need it if they have decided it is not one they will pay for. And, thanks to ERISA the most you could sue for would be the cost of the denied drug or service, not the cost (human or economic) of the adverse outcome from said denial if the insurance was employer provided.

NO.. that's either wrong info, or someone at customer service f***ed up royally..

More likely someone didn't have the cash and wanted them so they hid them in another location but hadn't come back yet. An employee finds them and puts them back where they belong. You were in the right place at the right time.

I assume someone brought them to the register and opted out of buying them so the cashier put them in the gun and ammo bin at service desk to go back into stock

Normally, I'm the Pollyanna in a thread,
but for this thread I'll make an exception...

Ma.
I just got back from there about an hour ago and they had very little of anything. Some .224 Valkyrie, some magnum rounds and the pistol rounds were at the optics counter. They had a sign saying they were at that counter and when I asked the person I spoke with said that too many people were getting in the aisle so they moved them to that counter to help reduce the crowding in the aisle. and all I saw back there was 5 boxes. I don't know of what since I didn't look close enough to see and I didn't ask.

That and they don't charge anymore than they normally would. Most shops will goose the markup when shit gets bad, they have to because they have less shit to sell. On the other hand Cabela's is making their bank on piles of chinesium trash sold in the other 90% of the store at much higher margins than ammo.
