Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

Well, I found some Alliant Unique.

One e-tailer that I've found shows stock.  I've had an 8-lb. keg on order with my local Merchant O'Death since I got back from last year's Gun Blogger Rendezvous.  No word on when I might ever see it.  Every other source I've checked shows no stock - Midway, Powder Valley, Natchez, Cabela's, etc. etc. etc.

Except this one.  A couple of days ago, they showed that they had one (1) 8-lb. keg left in stock.  Today they show they have only three 1-lb. bottles.

The keg was $299.  The one-pounders are $42.49 each. That's right at double what Unique cost a year ago.  (Plus, of course, the $28.50 HazMat charge and shipping costs.) 

People call this "gouging."  I call it "Economics 101 - supply and demand."  Had this e-tailer offered their stock at "normal" prices, they'd be out of stock just like everyone else.  By elevating the price, they still have some - for whoever is willing to pay. 

I'm not their guy. More power to you if you are.
