    From a dealer here in Georgia

    "If you haven't already stocked up I'm afraid you might be behind the 8 ball.

    My inventory is much lower than I would care to admit and it's moving out quick.

    I have a few gun incoming but not near as many as I would like to have.

    I'm down to less than 10k of 556 and 7.62x39 ammo."

    The market was also flooded when the '94 AW ban went into effect and it didn't take very long for the prices to spike. It's a finite supply in high demand.

    I look for prices to spike on the wholesale level by open of business tomorrow along with retail prices.

    I am not an old established store with $500,000.00 to a $1,000,000.00 or more inventory so this will not be a windfall profit for me. I stock my store as finances allow and I restock as inventory sells.

    This will not play out well for me!!!!!
