RIMFIRE RAFFLE & MORON INVESTMENTS
Never fear, my series “Bio & Biblio” will continue shortly. I’m thinking I’d like to save that writing for this weekend when I don’t have such extreme time pressures just in case I decide to make it seven hundred words each part just like I did with #1, rather than a short four or five hundred word ( as I’ve said before, word count is important to me as a self-discipline mechanism to deliver a consistent product ) article. Today, we cover two short topics I’d be hard pressed to make into complete articles. The continuing shortage of rimfire ammunition and the latest moronic scumbag asshat monkey member molesting investment newsletter offering. First, rimfire. All the time in town here there is a raffle for a gun going on, usually covering a good cause like a medical expense for a family or a home fire destroying everything, etc. They’ve had nice pistols, precision hunting rifles, assault carbines. A short time ago they had a raffle for a bucket of rimfire. $5 a ticket. The gun raffles are usually $10 or $20, so this puts the desirability, cost and demand into perspective. I’ve said it a hundred times. If copper and hence brass is in extreme short supply, NOT primers or powder, rimfire ammo would disappear. Thirty cal would be $1 a round, but shotguns with HIGHER transportation costs BUT with no copper would be a mere two bits. Cheap ammo will never come back with the Peak US Copper in 1998 and the Global Peak Copper 2008.
If you are silly enough to go to:
you will listen to some idiot drone on and on and on about a very interesting subject, the petro-dollar collapse and our inevitable economic collapse. At the end, he wants you to buy his $150 a year newsletter which is fair enough. No free lunch. But he contends that the trigger for all this will be some arcane bill set to become law that will tax expiates, or tax corporations headquartered overseas that do business here. Something to that effect. The reason I don’t agree with this is that outside forces and countries will decide the dollars fate, not a change in government tax laws. It is just another claim that gold will soar. Of course it will, and western civilization will collapse. Duh. But no one can time it. And gold isn’t for a collapse, it is merely a wealth transfer device for when the recovery happens. Which could take quite awhile. Beware any claim on timing.

Jim, I couldnt pin down the price of brass online anywhere, but it seems to beReplyDelete
about 3-4 $ a pound. How many pounds of it are in a brick of 22's? Probably less than 1. There must be other reasons for the 22 shortage. Maybe 22 was allways a low profit item & the mfg's are turning to more profitable centerfire products?
A friend who works at Wmart claims they only get about 3 bricks at a time and are sold as soon as they hit the shelf.
Remember, it isn't just about the official price. Those are manipulated down. Like gold. Or silver. I don't know why, but obviously it benefits the bankster bitches. You can demand gold at $1300 an ounce all day long, but good luck getting it delivered. I think copper might have a similar dynamic going on. I think if rimefire demand was all it took to get the factories churning we would have already seen supplies coming back at a double or triple price.Delete
