    This is why I've tapered way down, to zero in fact, on firearm purchases, and why I've also extremely slimmed down ammo purchases.

    The sheep rush is on now in full swing to buy any and all firearms not nailed down, along with ammo, driving prices way up.

    Those are just the background checks. I wonder what percentage of those are multiple purchases? I know I can account for two purchases this year on one NICS check.

    I account for 3 of those checks on 4 guns in the last 9 weeks with another coming in the next few weeks. My husband is 1 of those on an M400 purchase.

    I'm thinking of getting a Rossi lever action .357, but I've always wanted one since I saw The Rifle Man growing up.

    I've made a few purchases just under the wire......two rifles, magazines and ammo before price increases. A better investment than a CD at this point and fun to use. My M1A has doubled in price since the Bill Clinton years and I love it.
