    Do you all think ammo will go up in price or components for your guns will go up first

    Did your buying priorities just change?

    It's not typically wise to make emotional decisions...

    but have your buying priorities changed due to the election result?

    Some of you have been through the scares before. How do you plan on riding out the next 4 years?

    Or should we all just...

    In 2008 I bought reloading supplies and components.

    This time it will be guns, mags, and loaded ammo.

    Do elections have any influence on ammo prices?

    Will ammo get more expensive since the president will be re-elected? I'm not trying to troll, but I just got into firearms and just bought my first one, so I don't know how elections influence ammo prices.

    I bet some smaller shop owners are already re-stickering items waiting to open the doors to the masses in the morning.

    Nope. Keeping the pantry stocked, the fridge full, and a pack of smokes in my pocket until I break this nasty habit. I also hate it when I run out of toilet paper, so will probably keep that a high priority.

    Take a breath. Realize that the sun rise. Let my actions be consistent with my beliefs. Not stress myself out unnecessarily or in a way that will impact my health negatively.

    Nothing changes until it changes... That sounds dumb, I wish I knew another way to put it.

    There is a pretty good chance that firearm & ammunition prices will go crazy for the next six months after this election. A lot of people will be worried about a ban & try to stock up on ammunition as well as certain types of rifles. This is good for the gun & ammunition companies but not so good for us. If no ban comes things should calm down in 6 months or so.

    Tomorrow is no different than yesterday. All of the same people still have the same jobs...I'll carry on. I don't like it...but at least I got to vote about it. It's still the best place around.

    I am waiting for a sane analysis of what to expect relative to the second amendment and the recent election results. I plan to purchase a little more 7.62x54R ammo if it does not become unreasonable. I only plan to buy the ammo I need for practice/training and that does not require tons of ammo. From time to time I might another firearm, but need sell some of what I got. Really there are a lot of other things that I want than a lot more ammo or another gun. If I am worried about security I would go for electronics and dogs for that rather than filling the basement or crawl space with ammo.
    Romney is about to give his concession speech so I will finish to listen to it.

    Bought months ago a lot of wolf, surplus 5.45.

    Wouldn't surprise me if some how Obama finds a way to bypass the legislature to ban imported ammo.

    Really if you were worried, should of bought months ago. The prices will probably be high for a year+.

    Nope. Personal analysis: tommorrow, when I wake up, Whoohoo! I'll still be Texan. Still a good reminder to up that TSRA membership though.

    Most likely, yes, prices will go up. At least for a little bit.

    I would not be surprised to see ammo shelves near empty for a while. I know that Gander Mtn and Academy near me were completely out of stock of 9mm and .223 ammo today...
