I went to a gun show here in New Bern, NC yesterday and left frustrated. Powder and primers went up, but only about $2 (surprisingly) which was reasonable after reading some of the earlier posts. What pissed me off was the prices the dealers were asking for the AR's. One vendor said his AR was on sale for $2100, marked down from $2400! I told him 6 months ago the same AR was on sale for $800. Pretty much said supply & demand....and people were buying them! I usually go to the smaller gun store by my house and pay a couple bucks more for the items because it supports the local guys. However, this is ridiculous! I didn't argue with the guy and didn't make a scene because it's a business and people were still buying at these outrageous prices so that's his right. What get's me pissed was that these same guys were the ones in the gun shop bitching that oil companies were price gouging every time a hurrican comes through here and gas goes up 50 cents! Oh well, I guess I'll stop supporting them and go back to ordering online where it's cheaper anyway.
I'll get off my soap box now
