Alright.... :wall: Damn you try and do someone a favor and get #### on. Please if you would like to rant about anything regarding this round he is the place. I will engage in the topic here as I am pretty damn knowledgeable in the subject area since I have shot a few thousand rounds of this stuff myself Please don't ask me about any local laws as I am not a lawyer and well the fact that there is 50 states.

Please keep in mind I didnt have to give away any SS190 here. I could have just put it on the other site and raped everyone for 300-500 a box all day long and not one person would have been displeased. I shoot a bunch and just figured I would pass on the good deal.......... Really :ponder: ..... Think about it :ponder:

Your friendly 5.7 member,
Bones :D

Bone I think you did everyone here a good favor, no they didnt have to purchase nor what you did. Sometimes people give out stuff to help to make folks happy and no matter what kind of outcome you want folks are always gonna be there and act unthankful or greatful.

Exactly. Keep up the good work, Bones. While I didn't see any ungrateful people on the previous threads, there really shouldn't be any! :clap:

Thank you sir :thumb: I really debated picking up the last bit and asked a few others and was told "Na" I thought to myself (Well it is more expensive) but if not it will end up on (fill in the blank) for three times as much if not more. This is a great site and a great bunch of people (for the most part :p ) so why not give back? Its kinda like if I was to grow up in the hood and become a famous ball player then come back and build a community center filled with activities and staff to help the youth flourish. :lmao: Nah not really :lmao: but you get what I am sayin? Right? I could have left the hood and became the great ball player who didnt look back at all the people who supported me..................Some people just need a visual aid :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

Disclosure: I am not trying to make any link between all the gangster hood rat ball players that come from my area

And free trade aside, it was not his intention to have people scalp them on GB, he was doing a nice thing but what ev, people can do what they want.

Didn't mean to strike a nerve, auctions not going so well? :skep:

You say "scalping," people that understand economics say "passing the deal on" the same as Bones. Flooding, and I mean FLOODING a market of an overpriced collectable is ALWAYS going to result the price equalizing to the new supply.

What Bones' intent was, and what actually happened are two different things (assuming you actually KNOW what his intent was), he sold it to anybody that wanted it, and as such some people are going to resell some of it (the # of people viewing the sale thread prove it wasn't just standard forum members buying), and insinuating that they are somehow doing something wrong is so ignorant its not even funny.

Strike a nerve? No not really, just annoying to see people that despise/demonize "profit" when it is the precise mechanism that allows you to have the quality of life you currently enjoy.

Oh and BTW, whether it was Bones, or the guy Bones bought it from, or the guy he bought it from, some guy made WAY more money on that ammo than any individual that is currently selling it on GB, and if they hadn't done what they did, however it happened, this "deal" of $100 a box wouldn't have been available. Profit and the desire for profit is what brought this deal to market in the first place.

I don't want no part of this argument man.

Thank you Bones, for helping our fine community. I have no doubt you attracted quite a large new member base. I wish I could have picked up a box myself while it was available at your wonderful price.

Alright gents, carry on :laugh:

Edited cause I thought we were in the Cage. Murphies caught me anyway :facepalm:

We have different views obviously, I just think it is a dick move morally, but as I said it is MY view.

If you really want to hash it out, feel free to make a thread in the cage or PM me but by and large continuing this argument is a waste of time.

Bones, you are the man
