It will settle down once we see that the 2nd amendment is upheld. Then you will see prices drop because of the flooded market. When people are not buying ARs the prices will drop, and all the ones that panic bought will be upside down.
As of now people are trying to sell their ARs on a Texas forum I am a member, at ridicules prices and they are not selling, some have even dropped their prices. Others are using the inflated prices to triad for equivalent price items. Also, all I am seeing are the crap AR for sale
A funny thing, I just received a Brownells shipment acknowledgment for (6) AR-15, 30 round mags I ordered when all this craziness started, Brownells and every other shop was sold out or selling the mags at $60+. I just waited; did not panic buy, for Brownells to fill the order when it came in from their supplier, and they did at the price of $ 13.99 each!! Maybe I should sell them for $60 each!!! Not!
