    CTD, Buds, and a few other online places now "mysteriously" have AR's "in stock" :upeyes: Glocks are "now available" on Cheaper than Uranium:rofl::upeyes:

    I guess online places can now pull those items off auction and sell them.... The prices are still INFLATED right now... But it is good to see stuff available. Now for GOD's Sake Loosen up on AMMO...

    No, I'm not delusional enough to think that Wicked Witch of the West won't still try to BACKDOOR a Capacity Ban of some sorts.

    In the meanwhile, PRAISE THE LORD & PASS THE AMMUNITION!!:supergrin:

    I'll be SHOOTING some more of my ammo tomorrow. I have some cool old guns begging to be taken out and shot. I burned up some ammo yesterday in my Remington 591M 5mm magnum rim fire. Sure glad that ammo has been manufactured again. It was almost impossible to find a few years ago, even at $50 per box. It's $14 for 50 rounds now.

    I think a few of those online retailers have been holding out, and speculating on even higher prices. They would have made a killing, if the AWB had passed the senate.

    ......I can't blame them. I probably would do the same. They are not in the business for any other reason, than to make money. Don't forget that.

    I have no doubt retailers of all shapes and forms have jacked up prices and held back stock. Not only guns but most certainly ammo.

    I have a fair stock of ammo, not huge, and I reload to so it didn't hurt me at all but a few of my friends were so desperate I sold them some ammo at just a bit above what it cost me. Not 100 percent markup but I did make maybe 20 percent more than I paid.

    Didn't sell most of my stock but just a bit so they could have some. Mainly some Federal 'value pack' .223 and Tula .40 S&W as well as a box of 333 rnds of Winchester .22 lr. ammo.

    But this should be a lesson of you of you here. Once this craziness is over get a few hundred rounds or so for each of the cartridges you shoot. If you reload, get maybe 5000 primers for each type you reload and a 8 lb can of powder (one can for pistol and the other 8 lb can for rifle.) I use Unique and Varget!

    Don't get caught short again!!

    I see folks counting chickens that have yet to hatch! The craziness is far from over, and "uhh" as far as the topic of the AWB being defeated, you'd best wake up, Obamacare was far deader then the marxist/leninists sacred AWB is, or likely ever will be, as long as marxists are holding down political power.

    There are two ideological holy grails of marxist/leninism in amerika, health care and gun confiscation. Just four years into their coup, they have one of the two enacted as the law of the land, and a midterm election just 18-months off, in which it strongly appears that the commies get back the supermajorities that brought them the first of their holy grails!

    No, the AWB is far from dead.

    This man speaks from wisdom. They aren't done. They are just regrouping. Take advantage of the lull for it won't last long.

    I noticed bids on GunBroker tonight seemed to be flat for AR-15 barrels, stripped uppers and lowers. However this may just be a lull in the 2A battle until the next mass shooting by a wacko who managed to slip through the system.

    I'm not buying it for a minute. I may be being cynical, but I smell political BS and flim flam. This isn't over yet.

    One gun store in Tucson always has a supply of handguns and AR15 and AK47 type firearms. Prices near or slightly above the norm. No 9mm ammo, of course.

    The fight is not over. We need to stop congratulating ourselves. There is still a magazine limitation bill and a universal background check bill. Not to mention the UN gun treaty, and even with this AWB, it is never truly dead until the session is over. Also, many of our state legislations are in session and considering similar anti-gun legislation.

    Stay vigilant fellas! Keep on your representatives. The fight for freedom is never ending.

    I agree.

    My eyes were really opened after the pool of transferable Class III weapons was frozen and Bush #1 implemented the ban on all sorts of semi-automatic rifles, etc. I was fully prepared and stocked up by the time the first “assault weapons ban” was put into effect. That legislation convinced me that the gun grabbers would never give up. I did take advantage of the lull when the first “assault weapons ban” expired, but that was just excess on my part.

    I was not caught short or wanting when Our Dear Leader was first elected and the craziness started again, but I still took advantage when there was a lull after that hysteria died down, just as I will take advantage of any lull, if things ever calm down again. I can see the handwriting on the wall, and for anyone that values their Second Amendment Rights, the future looks real bad.

    I learned my lesson, but the question is; how many of you are going to be lulled into a false sense of security?

    The fight is never over. The battle might have been "won", but the war will never end.
    It only takes the next mass killing more "shocking" than the last, by some lunatic using guns, and it starts all over again.
    Never become complacent.

    A quick look on Gunbroker shows some high bids on "assault style rifle" auctions ending in the next day or two. I hope to see prices heading back to "normal" next week.

    I have plenty of primers and powder.It's projectiles I wish I had stocked up on. I only have 2,000 bullets for each caliber I shoot. I need to get after market barrels and learn how to load lead so I am more prepared next time.
