Beware of your local guns shops........

I decided to run down to my local gun shop (it's a pawn /gun shop).
I checked to see if he had any AR's in stock or .223 and .308 Ammo for sale and I talked to the attendent as the owner was not there . When I asked if he had any .223's on order the attendent told me that he did "but" when they came in the owner would post them for sale on gunbroaker and other forums because what the price shows that others are listing them for . He then told me that he didnt want too list them on his shelf for what they are listed for on the net , he didnt want to do his "local customers that way" . So I thought I would share this with you all .The next time that you go to your local gun mom and pop shop and you dont see anything to purchase it may be because they are in the back of the store waiting to go on the net !

I have made it clear to just about anyone that i deal with if they try to gouge us or raise the pricing unrealistically I WILL NEVER USE THEM AGAIN... These guys are make a ton of cash on fear.. and that just isn't right...

Its a free market economy. If people are gonna pay the price and make the demand high for them then I don't see anything wrong with it. I'd just wait till the price comes down in a year or so and get one then.

I absolutely agree it is free market economy.... I am free to shop elsewhere... If this were to happen with gas prices there would be federal investigation..

The big difference being gas is a national commodity everyone needs to have and use and a gun is a personal item we choose to buy at the price the market defines. If you want lower prices, you'll have to drop demand which isn't happening.
