I went to dinner last night with a guy who went to the same LGS the very next day. I couldn't believe what he told me. They had raised the price of the RRA to $1800, and he bought one! That was pretty sickening to hear.
that same thing happened in 94 around here with a local gun shop, two years later they went out of business. they had been in business for over thirty years but the locals that supported them before that quit.
