Relax...last time they "outlawed" ar-15s it meant instead of a flash suppressor, they got a muzzle brake, and the stock couldn't be collapsible. Big deal. But then again, if they quit making them....you'll be lucky to get one for under 10 grand....

Re: Gun owners trying to make a huge profit off other gun buyers!!!
Thanks for the pin. My point is not supply and demand I get that 100%. My problem is the point fluctuation has taken most buyers out of the market. I know that supplies have been limited for sometime. But does charging a premium on weapons that a lot of people bought in multiples expressly to run up the price not piss you off ?
If a gas station was hitting your wallet for 3 times the going rate per gallon say, $15 dollars we would have gas station clerks hanging off every tree in sight. But if its guns , their parts or ammo then it's ok too screw your neighbor ?! These people will be the same ones who will be turning in names to collect " reward" money for people who own illegal weapons. That they sold to them at astronomical prices.

No worries PPUs are pretty good and reliable. the price was good too. Used to cost $500 before CT shooting for the 1000 round pack you bought. $300 was 55 grain FMJ. Yes a higher twist ratio like 1:7 would do better with those heavier rounds.

Re: Gun owners trying to make a huge profit off other gun buyers!!!
Here's the real shit storm of it. The dumb asses have emptied the shelves at a time when the manufacturers are slowing production, waiting to see what the new rules will be. No AR maker is going to keep production at full speed ahead if the guns they make may not be sellable due to new laws. What would they do with 2000 partially manufactured AR's? So they have actually slowed manufacturing so they don't lose their asses if these guns are outlawed again.

what this means is that there is no inventory to re-supply those empty shelves! In other words' now the gun stores are cleaned out and can't get new inventory to re-fill their shelves. Right now they're looking at a wad of cash and no inventory and are being told 30-90 days to get new guns.. Guess how many gun shops will go out of business over the next 30-90 days?

Ruger had already stopped taking new orders because they couldn't keep up with demand, now it will take years for them to catch up. But with the prospect of losing millions in partially assembled and now illegal AR's they are in no hurry to boost production.

the gunnies screwed themselves by 1) buying all inventory in the US and hoarding it, and 2) making themselves look like the lunatics the left claims they are.

my opinion may be biased because I was told in november that I would be receiving a year end bonus and my plan was to buy my first AR with the money.. Now I can't because they're too expensive and there are now no magazines or bullets either. So society screwed me.

and the cashier scans the box bar code
you could get a case for $16

Re: Gun owners trying to make a huge profit off other gun buyers!!!
So OP got panicked and decided he wanted to buy an AR before they get banned. THinking that he's the only one with that thought... And got all surprised when the demand widely outweighs the supply all of a sudden.

If I have a buyer that wants to pay me 2500 bucks for a rifle, I'd have to be as stupid as OP to sell it for 600 to someone else.

We keep talking about how mentally defective people shouldn't have guns. I'd say someone that doesn't understand supply and demand falls into that category.

Get used to it, just the threat alone is enough for people to stock up. Can make some real money if they do institute the ban again.


When the ban kicked in last time I was getting 100 bucks for a 50 round clip for the 10/22, a clip I paid less than 20 bucks for.

It was not people robing each other it was the fact you could no longer buy the clips new anymore, limited supply with high demand.

We used to pay 100 bucks for SKS’s , prices went to over $500+ after the last ban.

Double arm trigger pre-ban AK 47’s went to 1200+ paid less than 300 for them .

Better to over stock then be short what you need when you need it.
