    Why the run on AR stuff but not handguns?

    Now is the time to be patient. Don't get caught up in all the Chicken Little foolishness.

    Probably because the most likely weapons to be banned (if there is a ban enacted in the near future) are "assault weapons" like the AR. Most people are assuming that AR's are at a higher risk of being banned than handguns.

    You'd think that with everyone blowing their money on AR's, there will be less of a demand for handguns and other types of guns so the prices of those should drop a bit.

    I own a LGS and demand is for all guns. Reloading supplies are a little elevated, we can still get components.

    As for firearms, we are buying what we can get, not necessarily what we want.

    We have not changed a single price tag. But we are sourcing through alternate channels and in those channels our costs tend to be higher.

    We have had several teachers buy small guns. The use was not explained to us, but god bless them in their endeavours.

    dang. I should seriously consider selling a box. $1k for regular surplus would nearly quarduple my investment. not bad!

    Then again, I have a "bit" of fear that the ammo supply will dry up - slightly. the round's too popular for them to ban it entirely - but dang - this is looking worth some thought.

    Phatty,

    That's what I've been looking for. Some deals on what I want to open up as people change the focus of their buying. Suppose this is a combination of new gun owners and previous gun owners. Saw a lot of "Hipster" types at a recent gun show.

    All they have to do is enact legislation like a lot of countries where the civilian populace cannot own or use cartridges that the military uses - makes all those ARs obsolete overnight

    Those countries don't have our Constitution. Suppose we need politicians and judges that respect and understand the Constitution as well though.

    Wow, the 5 Magpul pmags sold for $515 plus another 20 in shipping. But if I had the resources I too would sell of stuff at a huge profit to fund other things. But alas what I have I need.

    I'm hoping these 5 mags for $500 type sales are an anomaly even if current prices have more than doubled.

    I'll keep checking evil black rifles and ammo for them daily for a while, posting the results here. See how this trends.

    On Tuesday there was a seller that had Pmags at $16 each.

    His are all gone now and the current auctions are pretty crazy.

    I just bought six PMag Gen 3's a week ago, literally the day before this happened. I really don't want to sell them, but times are tough for me. Must stay strong. :)

    I sold an extremely nice Type-3 AK kit on GB a little over a week ago, barrel was in excellent shape, it lasted just under 6 hours before the buyer hit the Buy-it-Now button.

    Doing another gunshow here in Texas this coming weekend, already got one AK sold in advance to a dealer, bringing 3 more along with it to see what happens.

    The way Feistein's bill is written now you wouldn't be able to sell after the ban (legally) as that would be a transfer and possession after the law takes effect.

    Which means a AR or 30 rd mag would be worth zero on the open market. From $2000 now to $0 then

    Actually the way her bill is written the way I am seeing it you couldn't even give them away or pass them down to your family as that still would be a transfer and possession..

    Old lady Feinstien (sp? who cares! Hate the broad anyway.)...

    ....really can't say much about me handing things down when I pass away.


    "Actually the way her bill is written the way I am seeing it you couldn't even give them away or pass them down to your family as that still would be a transfer and possession.. "


    She'll be dead long before me. I'll be too dead to sign the transfer papers. Anyway, back to checking Saiga prices. It's quite the form of amusement for me these days.

    For that price why wouldn't someone just order the Black Hills 52 or 68 gr. Match HP from Midway? It would cost the same, it's in stock, and you would even have decent ammo to shoot.

    If any future bill only bans specific features but doesn't ban certain types of guns, lots of people will be stuck with overpriced, and in many cases unwanted guns, as happened after the '08 election.

    Lots of people had extra Christmas money tied up in guns which were sold at a loss.

    Nah. The case neck gets lengthened 1mm and we're good to go. Or ARs just get reamed to .222 Rem Mag and bullets are seated a little deep. Plenty of ways around that one.

    Of course, I don't know how you get millions of ARs or BILLIONS of rounds/cases of 5.56mm out of circulation.........
