    I wonder why? It's like some anti-gun freak is about to win a presidential election....

    Everyone is out of stock on a lot of stuff. Look at AIM's website, they are out of almost everything.

    Jesus Christ people. It's not going to be banned tomorrow. You've probably got a couple years before anything sees fruition.....if it even ever does.

    Yeah, but try to convince hundreds of thousands of people of that. Everyone is thinking, "Fuck, I better get a head start before the prices go up."

    Prices are going up. It's supply and demand. Those that are waiting are going to get raped.

    It is going to get worse when they push that new AWB through. People are going to buy as much as they can, dealers will not be able to get stock, Everyone will jack up prices because little supply, big demand.

    During the last AWB glock mags were $75 used, $100 new in wrapper if you could get them. I expect Pmags to be about the same.

    So get your beta mags, ak mags, and all the other goodies you can afford. If you don't have a AR or AK at least get the receivers.

    The thing I'm most afraid of is how they will go after firearm and ammo manufacturers by creating laws that will let any joker try to sue them for something entirely not the manufacturers fault. Just the threat of this will lead many manufacturers to close their doors or just do military and law enforcement sales.

    I'm not sure its quite as bad as all that. Demand will be going through the roof tonight and prices are going to go up too because there just isn't the supply chain to fill those orders. However I think those prices are coming back down.

    I don't see another awb happening. The democrats have already been in control of congress and couldn't get support for one. I think the reps remember how badly they got burned last time. The public is pretty pro-gun right now, gun sales are hot, heller changes the rules some. Even here in Illinois that has a reputation of being very anti, they can't get together the support to pass an awb or magazine ban. Gun owners are so much more organized and active now too thanks to the internet. I just don't see it coming and I think by Feb people are going to chill out a little and supply will catch up and prices will go down.

    I'm inclined to agree with this guy. I'm not getting all worked up over it. Like Soy said, we've got the internet this time around and any hint of a new AWB will spread like wildfire, which in turn will lead to some serious lobbying. I just don't see it happening.

    People are just freaking out right now and that's why the prices are shooting through the roof. They'll recover. Remember, the country is pre-occupied with the economy right now and for the forseeable future. Guns aren't a top priority.

    I hope so. To be honest are you really going to take the chance? I lived through the first ban. It was pretty much everything just like how it's happening now. Deja Vu...

    However thing have changed, gun grabbers stay the same. I know better than most, I live in their backyard.

    the other thing is you have to remember is liberals are all talk. As things with the economy gets worse there will be more crime. They will not be able to do anything about the crime so they will do something that they think "looks" like they are trying to do something. That's gun control.

    All it will take is for some idiot to do a north hollywood, virginia tech, or columbine at it is fucking over. Liberal media spins the story, impressionable people get all emotional, gun grabbers are set up for victory.

    And I will temper my previous comment by saying that I hope no one is charging up their credit cards to buy stuff or paying crazy premiums but it can't hurt to buy for your future needs if you can actually afford to do so.

    I plan to buy a g17 down the road but I already have a few mags for it.

    100% agree, I think that's the #1 event that could lead to serious new ban talks in future years.

    Just ordered 10 more 30rd pmags w/ windows from eguns.com.

    I think a total of 25 pmags for 2 rifles is enough.

    'Enough' and 'mags' should not be in the same sentence together unless 'enough' is preceded by 'not.'
