Renamed the topic

I just received the new Delta Force catalog. These people must be insane with their ammo prices.

This is an example(and I shit you not):

Armor Piercing .223 Ammunition

The optimum choice for defeating reinforced targets. This is SS-109 delivering a 63 grain bullet at 3100 FPS. We have been able to secure a Limited Supply of this scarce ammo. So don't delay! Designed for firearms in good working order only. Perfect for your AR-15/M16,Ruger Mini-14,HK93,Rem 700,etc.

Item #we-scru-u1 10 Pack........$24.95 $19.95

Item #we-scru-u2 100.......$199.95 $139.95

WTF. This is complete bull. This truly saddens me that a firearm based company can take advantage of some shmuck who happens to come along and see this garbage.

Would this be considered price gouging or Capitalism?

Yes, these people are selling 100 rounds of SS-109 for $139.

Oh, but they lowered this from $199.95.

Everything they sell is overpriced, but I think this probably is the worst price inflation I have seen from them.

Just capitalism at work. It's only price gouging if you buy it.

You said it, Norm, a sale is only made because the buyer thinks it's worth it.

is it even worth my time to e-mail them? i say we let them go under, form a coalition of investors, and buy all their inventory at cut-throat prices from the Chapter 11 auction.

Yeah, I just got mine and was reading it on the crapper thinking that who would pay their freakin prices. Did you see their prices on thirty round ar mags? Fifty bucks? On sale? WTF? Seems like they are just newbie gougers. Oh well, they have the right to ask whatever they want.
