I occasionally look at guns to see what they go for and this year I've seen a huge increase in price, especially in defense guns. I looked on gun broker and some people are willing to bid over $600 for Remington 870 defender when you can just buy a hunting model and cut the barrel to defender length for basically half the price. Why are people willing to pay so much for guns all of a sudden? Are gun manufacturing companies not producing the same amount of guns now? I just want to hear other people's opinions, I'm just trying to understand.
