Well, I found some Alliant Unique.
One e-tailer that I’ve found shows stock. I’ve had an 8-lb. keg on order with my local Merchant O’Death since I got back from last year’s Gun Blogger Rendezvous. No word on when I might ever see it. Every other source I’ve checked shows no stock – Midway, Powder Valley, Natchez, Cabela’s, etc. etc. etc.
Except this one. A couple of days ago, they showed that they had one (1) 8-lb. keg left in stock. Today they show they have only three 1-lb. bottles.
The keg was $299. The one-pounders are $42.49 each. That’s right at double what Unique cost a year ago. (Plus, of course, the $28.50 HazMat charge and shipping costs.)
People call this “gouging.” I call it “Economics 101 – supply and demand.” Had this e-tailer offered their stock at “normal” prices, they’d be out of stock just like everyone else. By elevating the price, they still have some – for whoever is willing to pay.
I’m not their guy. More power to you if you are.
This would have made his former paymasters at the Los Angeles Times apoplectic:
But it’s absolutely bang-on-the-money accurate.
Also, “Not One of Us”
Worth fifteen minutes of your time.
Here’s another video, this one from the 2011 GBR VI:
Still working on getting registration set up, but soon!!
I mentioned this gentleman before, but here’s some footage of the man in action:
I LIKE this guy!!
And Fran Porretto on our government’s undeclared war on half its population.
In response to this question over at Quora.com:
How many victims of a mass shooting would there have to be before an actual discussion of gun laws would be an appropriate reaction?
Comes this answer I wish I’d written myself:
When the number of gun deaths approaches the number of deaths by abortion, then gun owners will take anti-gun people as seriously as pro-choice people take pro-life people. Which is to say, not much.
