    Will there be a run on guns and ammo like we saw in 2008 if the election comes out in favor for the current administration?

    I think the run has already started. It's a just in case thing.

    Remember Rodney King anyone ?

    I never have understood this. History tends to repeat its'self and all runs do is creat shortages and higher prices. It's like the buyers are screwing themselves. I have been stocking my private firearms needs & wants for years gradually. When the right gun came up at the right price I was always financally ready to jump and because of that my firearms needs are complete. Also I have been purchasing mags and ammo the same way. Been buying bulk and adding to my inventory sheet so I always know how many round of whatever I have in stock. Ammo I shoot on a regular basis I usually buy over the counter locally but the prices are already so high it's simply ridiculious. A new Gander Mountain has recently opened here and they have a TON of ammo in stock, but their prices are already the highest I have ever seen in my life. I really don't expect them to be open long, we'll see how that goes.
    I strongly suggest if your in need of certain arms or ammo or mags you should already be making those purchases as soon as you can. I have many like minded friends who have also witnessed this befor and when it happens again we will again be sitting around watching people bleed for their supplies because they brought it on themselves.
    If the current administration remains in power after this election, life as a FREE American is going to change like you never thought possible. VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, you still have a chance to stop it. :wavey:

    Well for the last two months I haven't been able to locate the 22s I like to use.

    Found a deal on a AR lower and Uppers are priced crazy , or are all out of stock for the price I am looking to spend.

    Primers seem to be out of stock, or hit or miss.

    I bought all my reloading stuff for the year a little early to avoid the out of stock issues.

    My local shop just got in four boxes of my favorite 22's, bought one box when they were putting them on the shelf, I'm thinking I better get back tomorrow and buy another.

    Been on the cusp of a new gun for weeks, reading and trying to decide among several contenders. So a couple that I am considering are not available locally so have been waiting for a gun show. In two weeks there is one 60 miles away in a slightly larger city, Mobile, and then in three weeks there will be one here in Pensacola. If O is elected I don't think 5 days will be enough time to ruin it by then.

    I have only found one brand that will run in all my 22s ( 10 diffrent guns) I still have about 10-12 525 packs but I like to restock for every pack I use. They told me they get them in but it's always diffrent days and all I could do is keep checking. Hoping that is just the pre election rush and in a couple of weeks they will be back around.

    This is so ridiculous. People say that every election time and it just turns out to not be true. People get so freaked out about Dems, they think the world is going to end and, surprise surprise, it never does. Also, many dont realize how many Dems and liberals are gun owners and users. Dont believe the hype, everything is going to be fine.

    He said "if the current administration remains in power"

    The current administration is Democrat.

    Further, the context of the thread/discussion up to that point revolved around Democrats.

    A reasonable interpretation of his statement thus concludes that he was, in fact, talking about democrats.

    Hope this helps.

    In case you haven't noticed it's already started at least in my neck of the woods.
    Used guns are in short supply,prices are up,ammunition is not in great stock on the selfs and reloading components are starting to disappear along with the ammunition.
    Not as bad as 08 yet but none the less starting again. SJ 40

    If there is run, it will created by those with vested interests in companies selling guns and ammo. Or, those intent on creating a boogy man; like Obama the non-American, or Obama the Socialists, or Obama the Communists, or Obama the whatever. After 4 years of the Obama administration, there has been not one attempt to take guns from anyone.

    People believe what they want to believe. And people believe what are told to believe. In this case, people are being told that Obama wants to take guns from Americans, going to happen. After 4 years of this administration, it has not happened. There is no reason to believe it will happen during the next 4.

    There doesn't have to be any attempt to take guns from anyone to make having what you want a good idea.

    Even when they did pass an AWB in 1994 there was not one attempt to take guns from anyone.

    And I think you are wrong. People aren't talking about "Obama wants to take guns from Americans". People are talking about the possibility of additional restrictions, difficulty, or cost in the future acquisition of firearms, magazines, or ammo.

    I find your position, as quoted, to be a straw man.

    I disagree. Panic buying makes it suck for EVERYONE. I just started to get into shooting in Dec of 08. Boy did I get sticker shock. I think it's minds like this that create more of the panic. Even if O did try he doesn't have the support to pass anything. Even his own party doesn't want to touch that subject. This isn't 1994. More Americans own guns, gun business is big & creates billions of $ & jobs. It's become more of American culture.
