The forums at ar15.com are filled with stories of guns, parts and ammo flying off the shelves nationwide. If the libs are unsuccessful in passing gun control laws, they will at least have prompted the arming and resupply of many thousands of Americans.

Prices on many AR rifles and parts doubled in 48 hours, mags tripled, from what I have seen locally.

“A combination of demand and gouging”

Bias right there. Why do these liberals always call balancing sudden market demand “gouging”? They know if they sell at the same price they will run out of stock, and don’t want that. You up the price to keep yourself in business if possible, and not have to take off a day like this lady because you have no supply.

Panic waves of buying are a trademark of our culture, particularly firearm enthusiasts- not so much the regulars, but the periphery who awake suddenly late for work realizing they slept through the alarm and multiple snoozes.

It gets worse over time with the internet and whatnot.

Eventually the latecomers run out of money or are satiated and things sort of equalize.

Freaking out doesn’t get you real far. Might be a good time to trade an extra “assault weapon” for a few of those collectible niche fillers you’ve been looking for...

Right now, I wish I had several AR-15s, but I don’t.

I’m glad SOMETHING is being manufactured in the US.

CDNN Sports is no longer taking online orders. They can’t keep up with the demand.

Two things are going to come of this:

One, there are going to be a rash of accidental shootings from people dropping the mag and thinking it is unloaded

Two, ARs for sale that were fired once and dropped once.

Gonna be some good deals out there in the near future boys. Keep your eyes and ears open.......

With a threat of regulation/ban, the best place for inventory is in people’s homes rather than in warehouses or shelves, where a ban on sales could suddenly make inventory worthless.

Even if there’s a ban on sales, friends can quietly trade privately among themselves.

And each of those transactions have been noted, flagged, and stored.

They know who to go after now.
