Bullets and inflation
I just read that there's no inflation to speak of. My $6 steak costs $10 now but that is not an indication of inflation. Food has always been just something I got without much regard to cost. I pay attention to costs in other places but have pretty much just gotten what I wanted when shopping. That is only a bit true now. If I stand still in the store, the prices seem to go up. I'm assured by the learned economists that it is a temporary supply line issue and I believe that to be true. I'd be happy to see them go back down sooner than later, though. Makes Dinnerly seem more and more like a good buy.
The guy in San Jose had 12 guns and 25000 rounds of ammunition. When I first heard that I thought "Where the hell does he get that kind of money? That stuff is expensive! If I had enough cash for that I'd take a trip, to hell with shooting up my work place."
Irreverent, I know, but 50 rounds of 9mm costs between $5 and $10. I'm guessing in LA it is $10. So that is a quarter million dollars of ammunition. Figure the guns at $500 each, that's a paltry $6000 but that does not count all the ancillary gear. This guy is seriously invested in his hobby.
And I'm sitting here worrying about whether I can afford to buy a higher quality of steak for dinner for another $10.
Hardly seems fair.
