I bought 50,000 about 10 years ago. Lucky me. And buckets of powder. I didn't have any crystal ball, I just know that 'nothing will ever be as cheap as it is right now.' With guns always being a political hot-button issue, it is nothing but a matter of time... I was called a fool because 'this stuff is so cheap and plentiful, there is no reason to stockpile it, you're silly.'
That time came. And now, I'm still loading for the prices of 10 years ago, and NOT contributing to the supply crunch...
Always buy when a commodity is plentiful, for that is the surest indicator that it will soon no longer be.
