    My wife picked me up 3 boxes of .380 today. She said that the shelves were packed full.

    I haven't experienced ANY buying lately. Lost my job due to downsizing in December of '08, been struggling ever since. Recently even the part time work I've had has pretty much petered out, and I haven't worked in 3 weeks.

    Wish I could afford to engage in a little panic buying! :)

    Prices dropping? Because Obama was elected?

    Highly doubtful.

    Prices dropping? For any reason, doubtful. Demand wont go down for raw materials or the finished products.

    Some sellers reported record sales today. Already out of certain items. Price increases to follow.

    I'd rather you bought 1,000 Wake-The-Hell-Up pills to start handing out to the left-leaning Independents. Hell, maybe we can start a collection.

    On Topic - I did notice several sites last night start with their "We're Now Swamped and Have Shipping Delays." within about 2 hours after the election results were announced.

    Haven't noticed panic buying or price increases, but I did find out that the majority of American voters are clinically retarded.

    Panic buying??, That was done in 2008-2009. Most have more than they need for a while. Wait till Hillary runs for president in 2016, then the panic buying will go through the roof (LOL).

    The local walmart had more stock than usual today. The only reasons I went in was because i have range trip this weekend and im out of 22 and 762x39. Bought a brick 22 and 120rds of 762. There was PLENTY of stock on AR ammo even the steel case cheap stuff that is always gone.

    Why people where talking about civil war i have no idea. Was the last 4 yrs bad for me because of Obama? No. Locol weapon laws became looser, my salary increased 50% and I have more health care coverage than ever.

    YOU have more power over your well being than anyone else. This is still 'Merica not mid 1900 China and Russia.

    Locally only. No links or actual statistics. Three resellers in WA state are saying this.

    One FFL Dealer just posted, when asked about price increases:
    (did not alter spelling error)

    Only time will tell, but we are always on the short end of the stick when it comes to new handguns.

    Whatever is less than none.

    They might come down a little after they go up dramatically.

    The better question is at what rate they will increase. Unfortunately, the answer is in the wind.

    Um, you haven't got the hit yet
    wait till the senate goes into session
    lame duck or the new "mandate" senate

    who propose gun control then the NRA takes off with their fundraising
    THEN you see the bump

    There's a fundamental difference in the people who exist today. A distinct lack of morals, work ethic, individual responsibility and patriotism will be our demise, not the man in the white house. His getting a second term just shows that people would rather vote themselves money out of other people's pockets than secure a prosperous future for this nation, because the latter requires them to make some effort and have a modicum of accountability.

    I'm 30 years old, and I thought my generation was the worst. I have been proven wrong.

    Yeah I dont think prices will ever go down ,they just seem to do the opposite.I do have luck once in a while at w-mart believe it or not.I have bought 3 rifles there over the years and you can't beat those prices.I think they sell rifles/shotguns so you'll buy the ammo there.Factory ammo is alot cheaper if you can get it there instead of the local gs or ordering with S&H fees.But you all saw what happened to prices the past 4-5 years.:uhoh: I'm hoping for the best though.Have to at least try to be optimistic :p

    He wasn't talking about the younger kids. He was talking about the boomers.

    We're selling a few more tactical rifles, and more ammunition. That's about it.

    I watched their page last night. They had PMC Bronze .223 for $320 + $16 shipping (for most areas), for a total cost of $336/1k (my case arrives Friday). People should have known about this as it went out in the email several days ago.

    After midnight they had 90+ listed in stock. At 4 am it was down to 7. I'm sure those final 7 didn't last long.
