    Just on individual items? I'll start, I paid 45. for a used magazine that I could have gotten new for 28. or less, but they were sold out, and no restock in sight. I'm sure this is just small potato's.

    Is there any resentment towards the liberal mentally ill left, for seek group punishments on firearms owners who have committed no crime?

    I bought 3 mags for my Glocks at $39.00 a mag. That price is double. They cost me so far $60.00 No ammo bought so I saved a lot there. I cut down on my range time. I'm going to save money because being I cut down on my range time.
    I'm not going to renew my membership. Its not worth it if I only shoot once a month to be a member. Plus I'm not crazy about the gun shop and how they been ripping new people off with their prices.

    $0 I'll do without before I buy into the frenzy. In fact the Hi-power has only one mag and looks like it will stay that way for awhile. No worries.
    Good luck and stay safe,

  4. i bought a colt le6920 from walmart for 1200 (probably one of the last ones they sold there before they stopped selling them). they guy told me that they just got 14 in stock. i wish i had it to do over again, i would have bought as many of them as they would have sold me since the one i got for myself was #4 out of the 14 in stock. i would have made a fortune at this point.

    Here is the bottom line.... you cost yourself unless you just turned of age and are buying your first firearm. You should have gotten what you needed to get by. You shouldn't be buying anything right now. You should actually be selling things and squirreling the money away until the panic stops. Any semi's you have should have been purchased with 5-10 magazines each in the first place. Then you wouldn't have to run around in a panic because you waited. Anyone that complains now, deserves what they get. Sorry for being blunt about it, but it's the truth.

  7. Not a single dime. I had already bought all that I need (weapons and magazines) when the ban ended and prices had come down to normal. I kind of predicted something like that was going to happen again in the future and I was right. So whatever they do, it does not affect me, cause all my guns were lost on the last fire.:supergrin:

    I bought my Smith & Wesson M&P15 Sport in July for $635. I should have bought 20 of them to sell.
     
  12. $75 so far: $50 to the NRA and $25 to the Va. Citizen's Defense League. Probably another $50 to SAF.

    Nothing. I have everything that I need, so I have not purchased any relevant items during this frenzy. This gun-grabber's push did not come as a surprise. I knew that when Our Dear Leader was first elected, that it did not bode well for the Second Amendment and gun owners. A person had to be a bloody idiot to have not seen Our Dear Leader's anti-Second Amendment agenda.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

  15. I spent a little....it was just my luck that I bought my first AR(I've had a mini14 for several years) the Wednesday before sandy hook....was a great deal on sale at my LGS...I also bought an additional USGI 30 mag for 14.99 and 6 20 USGI mags for 10.99...
    I was waiting for Friday, payday, to go back and buy some cheap brass military rounds for it, as I have about 1000 rounds give or take 100 for the mini, but most are steel case and I wanted brass for the AR....irrational I know as it will fire the steel cases with no problem...it's just me:embarassed: then the panic hit! I went back to My LGS on Saturday, you could not find a parking space....luckily, the still had ammo and they had not raised any prices...so I was able to get several 30 round packs of USGI ammo for 10.99...

    The bad thing is, I want to shoot the AR more, my Wife even likes it, and she's 115 lbs soaking wet, has no trouble shooting it...she just smiles as she burns through a 30 rounder....but I'm not paying the price to replace the ammo....

    Thousands of dollars to the NRA, GOA and other pro second amendment organizations. If polititician weren't constantly working to take our guns aways, I could have spent all that money on more guns.

    You should have been charging THIRTY bucks a mag; the more he has to pay, the greater his respect for your foresight!
