Re: Today's prices

The prices here are still the same, but then again we're out at the side of the pond so it takes a while for the ripples (what was waves for every one else to get to here)

It's really the moron effect... Everyone without a clue starts buying blindly when someone like our current pres. opens their trap against something like guns. Then the sensible people get scared they may not get their favorite pills and powder so they finish killing the market. Classic market run.
The only solution is to keep inventory of everything you'll need for the next year or two so a market run won't affect you. I've only bought a few boxes of bullets in the last month; I have 5,000 rounds and 5,000+ bullets in inventory with enough powder and primers to push what I've got.

psychos, crazies, media exploitation, socialist agenda... you control / limit the ammo you effectively control the guns. Can't have a socialist government with an armed population.

Re: Today's prices

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
