Yep. Looking for a Mini-14 so I went to Gander Mountain yesterday where they always have a few on the wall. They were cleaned out and don't know when they'll be getting new ones. Cleaned out of every high cap magazine as well and the shelves were bare of all but the least common caliber ammo. Lots of empty shelves and wallspace. The only scary, black rifles they had were .22LR.
Went to a smaller gun store in town today and saw a pair of Mini-14s in stock with $1300 price tags --more than double what you could get them for a month ago. Kept my wallet in my pants. Don't need one that bad right now. Just crazy out there!
Oops. fogot to switch my computer back to semi-auto.
Those Mini-14s will be gone by the weekend. Even at double the price, it is only 10 years worth of inflation. I didn’t quit buying gasoline cause I remember buying it for $0.25 A GALLON. I need the gas today and am willing to pay today’s price. You obviously do not need the Mini today, and that is fine.
