    Just in the last week:

    3 "LEO Only" Glock 22 mags for my wife's G23

    4 "LEO Only" G21 mags for my G21

    Three Vortex flash suppressors (for AR, FAL, and Savage 10FP) which will serve as an attachment point for a quick-release Fisher Industries .30 cal sound suppressor.

    **Note** the AWBan sunset means that I can now put a sound suppressor (which BATF says is also a flash suppressor) on my former post-ban AR.

    And I haven't purchased the collapsable stock doo-dads or the para-FAL stock.

    This is going to be an expensive autumn.

    I wonder if we'll get a blip in the next Gross Domestic Product numbers :p

    You are incorrect in your description.


    You haven't even purchased a single actual firearm yet!!


    When you do, THEN you can complain! (Or gloat..... :) )

    well, i bought a AR dissipator kit to go on a stripped receiver, and a receiver and US parts to go on my FAL Para build. AND there's a gun show in hampton, va this weekend, and i'll probably be there....spending more money!

    oh, i remember, i also bought mags for my AR and FAL, as well as a Hakko aimpoint clone from an FALFiles group buy. i think that in the past week and a half, i've put over $800 on my credit card.

    this is going to hurt for a while.

    It makes me sick that I can't participate.

    Although not technically part of the ban I am buying an AK tonight, then tomarrow, 10 BIG mags for $10 each and even thinking of a 75rd drum for $50 clams :)

    We do feel for you guys of crapy states though :eek:

    First post AWB sunset gun show for me this weekend ... hopefully, all the vendors will come prepared ...

    Ah, AZRickD -- PC police alert: 24 years in the Navy so far ... we tend to be cheap sonsaguns when we're drinkin' ... (not that I've ever been drunk or witnessed an actual drunken sailor) ...

    Well, let's see. The NRA claims 4.3 million members. Even if only 10% of that membership spends money this month as a result of the ban expiring, that's 430,000 shoppers hitting stores and shows across America. I'd think it was resonable to expect spending to the tune of $100 bucks on average. An extra $43,000,000 would certainly make an impact on the GDP. :)

    I was thinking the same thing.

    Maybe this was part of Bushes plan to stimulate the economy.

    I know I am doing my part.

    I will be over $500.00 in firearm related purchases for this month by the end of the weekend. :D

    I was restrained. ;)

    I only bought two LE-marked AR mags and an LE-marked Glock mag (for a gun I don't even own,) plus some ammo and stuff, because...

    ...there's a gun show coming up next weekend and I want to buy even more AR mags. :D
