    I know that is a long time ago. I still bought a lot of it and have it in storage that I have paid a monthly fee on ( it is not much each month).

    So, several months ago the two dealers I know called and wanted to buy some of my ammo. I don't usually sell my ammo to dealers, but they are friends and I said I would sell them some. They wanted 60 cases and I told them OK and the prices was going to be the going rate minus 20% when the pick it up. So my wife and I went to storage and dug out 60 cases and brought it home and stuck it under the stairs. I called them and told them it was ready to pick up. About two months later they showed up to get it and the prices had gone up and I told them the price. They wanted it at the price when I called them. Nope, this was the price today. So they told me they didn't want it. I told them fine, and they left. Yesterday, they called me and wanted the ammo I had gotten several months ago out of storage. I told the that the price had gone up again. So they said they would pass.
    They now have a problem because they already had a buyer for all of it and got the money from him, but don't have any ammo.

    Tomorrow my wife and I are going to load it up and put it back in storage.
    It can sit in storage for a long time.
    No! it is no longer for sale at this time. Maybe next week, Maybe next next year, Maybe never.
    Sometimes, It is fun being an old man.

    Have a nice day!

    Heheh.... they don't sound like friends to me! Acquaintances is all. Their behavior is exactly why you don't usually sell to dealers
