Supply and Demand, Illustrated

Firehand at Irons in the Fire files this report from on a local gun show:

$30 bucks for a brick of .22. More at one table. And one guy had a 100-box of Winchester white box .380; he wanted $90.

And from the comments:

Went to a gunshow today in Clarkston MI. Same box of 100 Winchester .380 was $100 and going fast.

Suddenly, the $21 I paid for a box of no-name .45ACP a while back seems "reasonable".

UPDATE: As of 10:10 this morning, the Epping Wal-Mart had five three boxes of WWB .380 Auto.
