It takes one shot to bring down most game( if it takes a lot more than that your not sure of your shot & probably shouldn`t have taken it) I guess a fully auto is great for hunting ground meat. Might as well go after fresh roal kill.
As for greed not entering into it, greed is in everything in demand. Umbrellas when it`s raining, gabage patch dolls when you couldn`t get them, gas when a false speculation was created. A shortage or demand for a product doesn`t make it cost more to produce, market or transport, lowers storage & display costs. It`s pure greed that sets the higher price a demand for a product might lessen the supply, it doesn`t raise the price.
Want to read an interesting bit on MSN money monet this morning, it explains a lot about what is happening to 401k funds & the morgage crisis thru wall st. ceo greed. Don`t know yet how accurate it is but sure sounds true.
To convert a M1 A1to a M14 you need 4 Parts still illgal to own them parts unless you go threw the Proper Procedure
Period. The price of ammo & firearms is up because fuel & shipping cost and raw material to make it went threw the
roof.Brass lead copper powder primers all double some tripple in Price so it cost more to make so the price went up .
Also there are two wars going another reason way the ammo is in short supply same thing happend in the early 90's
when desert storm was going on .
