Should we all be stocking up on post-bans?

    Look, the AWB is about to go down in a year or two.
    Does that mean that the gun companies will stop making "post-ban" designs and their values will increase? Should we all stock up on post-bans?

    that would be ironic. i find it idiotic that folks pay pre ban prices for things you don't need. i would buy what you want while you can still get it, ultimately they will probably get just about anything but "hunting purpose" arms banned, restricted or something.

    No if anything wouldn't the prices go down? Who wants a post ban design when you can get a brand new weapon that has all of the pre ban features should the ban cease. If your going to to buy anything buy it because the new laws may even get worse.

    Really?

    Look around you. Gun control is less and less popular. The AWB is going down, and so are some gun laws in Russia, Canada, maybe Britain, and the more of them go down, the less credibility the folks will have. If we do a little bit of effort, in 10-15 year gun control will die. Besides, to your question, who will buy them? - Collectors will.

    Wouldn't that be one hell of an investment?

    Myself I couldn't care about the investment aspect. I'd rather have the price on all my guns drop such that we can all go out and buy new guns with evil features (flash suppressor, pistol grip, bayonet lug, big drum magazines or belt fed, etc.).

    The "ban" was about "comestic appearances" and has no real substance with respects to the function of the firearm. More "feelgood" legislation that made us feel bad.

    It's a good idea to buy weapons regardless of Pre/Post ban status.

    The only way I would see the price of Post Ban weapons increase is if we had any additions to the crime bill instead of it sunsetting. It wouldn't be far fetched to think of them enacting a new bill to grandfather current post ban weapons and restricting new purchases to "california" approved weapon types.

    Not only do we have to be concerned with new Federal restrictions coming down the pike someday, we also have to worry about State govts adopting more restrictions. Again, I use California for an example.

    Will post ban designs increase if the bill sunsets? Not very likely.

    Good Shooting

    Only one correction to your eloquent post

    True, the "ban" as we know and love it dies in '04, but the big question is what's coming down the pipe to replace it. I'm not getting my hopes up, but then living in California means that any replacement to the crime bill will pale in comparison to what the socialists here have up their sleeves.

    The PRK is proof that the federal ban doesn't mean didilly when the State bans it. I wouldn't hold my breath that the federal ban is going down. I think it may be political suicide for a politician not to vote re renew it. That's really not what I want but I can hear all the cackling on TV now.

    I would like to see some things change in PRK. With the ruling in S.F. , CA not too long ago I am sure if things are going to change any time soon.

    Want to see crime decrease in CA...limit evil black guns, or put them in the hands of responsible CCW carriers.

    Hard Choice.

    As long as Republicans control both houses, every member of both houses can state that they hate guns and favor every form of gun control, but they can also keep bills locked in committee. The ban could die from lack of action.

    Don't hold your breath; but write your elected representatives!

    I can understand people being pessimistic; but please don't just roll over and expose your belly. Write your reps even if they are Feinstein and Schumer - at least let them know how you feel on it.

    All the politician have to do is keep there mouth shut and the ban sunsets. I think it would be political suicide for a politician try to bring up the ban!

    Yes. Stock up on pre-bans and post bans. You might not be able to get any at some point in the future. Plus you can get a lot of enjoyment out of them no matter what happens politically assuming you buy them before it is too late.

    Most definitely. I'd say, if you have the budget to stock up on pre and post ban rifles, go for it. At the very least, buy at least one or two of each kind and store them in a fireproof safe.

    We should all be stocking up on EVERYTHING.

    O.K. t-f hat off. I can't see the ban sun-setting. So, posts will probably still be posts.

    Re: Can you please help me?


    As an Israeli, you could probably write our elected officials and explain that in the Israeli war on terrorism that access to firearms is imperative for self defense. This could become an issue in the US in the future and that anything that weakens out RKBA weakens the strength of the American public.

    Maybe write up something intelligent and email it to our congressmen.

    As a supporter of the RKBA, I'll accept ANY help from ANYONE and be grateful as hell.

    Thank you for your support.

    Actually, this isn't a totally absurd idea.

    Once the AW ban goes away, the gun companies will revert to manufacturing the pre-ban configurations. However, some states will still have AW bans in effect. It is feasible that there may be a demand at some point for more post-ban configurations in the future. Of course, there is still going to be a large quantity of post-bans available from the newly freed states.

    Personally, I have no interest and doubt you would make any money in the process.
