    They sure did. I was in the market for a new EDC pistol for me and my wife and luckily got them right as the panic buying started. Then got my new AR at the same time. Unfortunately 223 is hard to come by, but I was able to hit up a few different Academy's the other day and get some.

    I'm the opposite right now. Took a big pay cut so I'm not spending anything, preparing for Great Depression 2: Corona Boogaloo.

    Going to be building projects using all the junk and spare parts I have laying around. Gonna look like something from Red Green's Handyman Corner.

    lol
    This is true. Lots of orders online lately. I just ordered some buzzers to buzz down the "mop" and it'll be here next week. Which is surprising. lol

    Funny story to add to that. I ordered a buzzer set from Walmart and their 3rd party 2 weeks ago. It was "supposed" to be here tomorrow. I wrote to the company about the tracking number. They email me back,...sorry we're refunding your credit card. We are unable to ship those out to you.
    Let's just say that email I wrote back was profanity laced. ;) :D

    I'm also trying to grab some from academy when I get the chance. At least their prices haven't changed compared to the gun stores have went way up and online is doing the same. I almost ordered some 22lr online the other day something like $25 bucks for 500 rounds of the cheap stuff which I was happy with, then at checkout my shipping was $36. Cleared my cart and moved on lol. You can get your hands on almost anything you want ammo wise but you're gonna pay for it.

    On a side note I only recently started shopping at academy, I've been missing out, their prices compared to places like bass pro are way better on ammo and accessories. Even their gun prices are really reasonable.

    Is there a non gov’t crowd petitioning website that a person could use to suggest Jeff Bezos implement a “Made in USA” badge to products on Amazon?

    I want to stop, as much as possible, buying anything from China.

    Nothing so far. I had to cut myself off from buying parts about a month and a half ago. I've kept all the other stuff to just the necessities.

    Y’all have seen what I’ve done I’m sure. My wife had ordered a ton of makeup and crap from amazon. She said she was going to be beautiful, I said “ keep buying.” That didn’t go over well. That said, no delays at all in the shipping. Next day, or the next.
