    That makes absolutely no sense. With the demand as it is, why are manufacturers only operating at 70%?
    "Force fetch isn't about retrieving as much as it is conditioning a dog to handle pressure, in a very controlled environment. It's about putting a dog in the position of having to figure out how to turn off pressure by finding the correct response. This translates into numerous areas in training." Sharon Potter.

    People are clamoring for more than they would normally buy for a couple of reasons, one of which is the shortage has people hesitant to practice with and shoot up what they have, creating the perception that they need a buffer of ammo between what they generally keep and what they're are willing to blast away. The lack of trust in BHO is the second factor.

    Or you could live in Colorado, where the legislature has no prohibited the transfer or sale of 15+ round magazines. It isn't paranoia, if they really are after you.

    I went to 3 different stores today to find .22 cal Gooser and the one store that had LRHp was priced at 19.95 per 100. It's gonna get worse.

    Would it be better if they just went to the range and shot it all?

    No 22 ,223,9mm to be had in VA been going to all big and small retailers and nothing. If you find it,they have a one box limit. It is hard to hoard at one box every 4 weeks.

    That sounds a lot like opinion and not fact. If you don't like Walmart then don't take the democrat approach and blame them, just don't shop there.
