Flintlocks are not "firearms" by law. Have one delivered to your door along with a boolit mold & a few pounds of powder & yer GTG!

As many posters have said/inferred in the past, government restrictions have never been as restrictive as has been feared, never. Take a deep breathe, and this will pass...
In your state maybe but many states are smack into draconian, defacto gun control. Mag limits, ammo & gun buying restrictions, registration, none of which was around much in the early 70s.

Hard to make ammo without primers. I know a coulle small ammo guys, no primers for them either.

I understand that things are a little crazy right now but no crazier than paying over $20 for a tray of a hundred primers. What in the world is going on? Who needs primers so bad that they will pay those prices. It can't be guys trying to save a buck because just buying primers puts you over the top. I can only come up with a couple of crazy scenario's where it might be worth it but when confronted with those scenario's a bag of primers won't make much difference.
I looked at a few auctions and said, 'No thanks.' I didn't see any that were close to reasonable and someone would probably outbid you anyway.

Ladies and gentleman the party is over for cheap ammo. Gun Sales in 2020, OVER 20 MILLION SO FAR. There are over 458 Million firearms in America. You can drive a BMW/RR but if you ain't got gas!!!! Just saying.

Yup, don't need to have much gun control if you can't use it for anything but a paperweight.

I think many new owners just think these "are" the usual prices for ammunition/reloading components. Heck, they've never had to purchase these items before now...

Keep in mind, the government has no trouble getting ammo.

Sort of. If you buy a new gun & ammo is over priced, you buy it because the gun is useless without the ammo. The silver lining is most of the new gun owners will only shoot 1000rds in their lifetime. They bought their guns as insurance, not to actually use.

Most of the new gun owners will sell their gun in a yard sale when this panic/ scare is over. It will be over at some point. I don’t know why people would want thousands of rounds for handguns if they feared social problems. Rifle and shotguns work better in these situations. If you are afraid you won’t get anymore you won’t need it anyway. Most that have a good many guns are loaders, shooters and hunters. You more or less end up stocking up when price is right. We don’t have to buy in panic mode. I was at gun show past weekend. Ammo galore and the hunch back club was in full force. Tables full of the foreign stuff at near 1000% markup on some.
