    Investment always carries some risk. Investors built this country, though, so I wouldn't knock it.

    I don't see ammo prices and /or supply returning to normal for a long time, I would assume the recent events would cause many non-hoarders to rethink how much ammo they should stock.

    I've been proudly hoarding since 1994, as a result I have no shortage of ammo, magazines, or EBR's.

    No more so than shopping at Big Lots.

    I don't understand why anyone feels like they're entitled to someone else's property for less than what it's worth.

    I don't think anyone does. The real issue is.. "what it's worth" is going to likely drop dramatically after this AWB scare blows over.... Thus the people that went out and maxed out a credit card and bought 3-4 AR's, tons of mags, etc..... well, they're gonna have to start paying bills.

    You're such an embarrassement to the State of Texas. We'd be better off if you just fell off the planet.

    No one is saying that, when demand goes down and supply is up, it's worth less. Stuff isn't always worth whatever someone paid for it. I've seen some ads on various gun classifieds before the market went crazy where the seller bought a gun new, decided they didn't like it, then flat out said that that they overpaid and the same gun new from a dealer would cost a couple hundred dollars less. However, they still think they're entitled to get back what they paid, so they want exactly what they paid for it, even though they admit they got ripped off and it's now a used gun. That's just not how it works.

    Maybe the high cap mag ban Colorado is working on? I'm guessing Magpul would not want to give up that portion of its business and would move, which would slow things down for a bit.

    I suppose there are other ways around the ban without moving, so maybe that isn't it.

    it will be a long long long time before I am comfortable with parting with anything I've been able to put my hands on. anything I have today could banned tomorrow if there is another school shooting. I'll bet there are now a ton of people with the same attitude as me.
    Sandy Hook showed us that we could lose our gun rights at any moment.

    i think in the end, the bottom will drop out, and they won't make what they are expecting.

    they'll make a few bucks in the end....they won't be able to retire like they seem to think they will.

    Prices are already starting to drop. I was at the Dulles show this weekend and there were ARs everywhere but no one was buying. It will take a while longer for the sellers to accept the fact that their prices are unrealistic now that the consensus is that there will not be an assault weapons ban.
