On the Black Ammo market, that pail as is would fetch $150, most gun shops would pay you $105 and if you were to wait a few more weeks, it might do more.... for about 5 minutes!
I went by this morning figuring I may get a box of 9mm, because they have not had any 22LR for over a month. I ended up first in line, got there about 7:20 am and they open at 8. To my surprise, I saw four of these stacked up on the countertop ...

But they only had the four buckets, and no other 22LR. I bought the first bucket, the guy behind me bought one and so on.
I am pleased to report that Academy is NOT price gouging. Everything I have bought since the panic started is at normal pricing, including my Nano 9mm.
1400 rounds for $65 = $23.21 for a 500 round box.
However, if you are like me, you will just keep that big grin and the ammo.
