On Primers and Panic Buying.

I'm checking the small pistol primer page daily on MidwayUSA, and, like every day since the election, it's a wall of 'out of stock, no backorder.' This is expected. What's not expected is that the 'expected back in stock' dates keep backpedaling, so either the primer companies are completely backlogged and can't make their committments, or people clean out Midway's entire primer stock in about an hour and a half.

These days, I wouldn't be surprised. In unrelated news, everyone I bump into these days seems to be wearing a sinister glint and a goatee. Strangely, the retail customers are more logical than normal.
