AR's are flying off the shelf!!

So I am in Utah for the holidays and decided I would do some shopping at the local sporting good stores, and there was one AR to be found in the seven stores I visited. There were people having a bidding war in the pawn shop for the last DPMS oracle they had. When I left they were up to $1200.

Then I come home to find my favorite gun classifieds KSL.com is no longer allowing the sell of guns.

I think it is safe to say there is something in the air.

Yep picked up a Olympic Arms last night, last one within 80 miles of my house that could be found. Unreal how the panic has set off sales of AR's and ammo

Ethan Parke........roped the deer in 1953. Put tags in his ears turned him loose then shot him in 1955. Always liked this pic
The story was told to me by his wife who owned the little motel we stayed at on a deer hunt in Malta Idaho about 17 years ago...... Youll never see that again. Just a cool pic of Idaho deer huntin history

Re: AR's are flying off the shelf!!

Owner of a local store told me he has sold more in a few days than he ever has in an entire year (they've been in business for over 50yrs). Up to 30 so far, hit up gunbroker & search P-Mags.... damn I wish I had more, 5 mags for like $400.00.

Of course you all heard about Dick's pulling AR's from shelves & refusing to sell them... our "other" local store refuses to order anything high capacity be it pistols or rifles or magazines...

Talk about a knee jerk reaction, when will society learn... never...


We DON'T need more gun control, we DO need more IDIOT control.

Re: AR's are flying off the shelf!!

People here are emailing Dick's saying they are boycotting them because of their decision to take AR's off their shelves. I'm sure that probably true everywhere.
