    I was out talking to my neighbor saturday and he mentioned wanting to get an AR soon. He said there was some kind of a ban coming up and it was in the very near future. Of course he had no details or any other info :squint:

    Just wanted ot see if there is any truth to this.

    Obama wants a federal ban on CCW too. I don't blame your neighbor, if you want something and have the cash, I'd do it sooner rather than later.

    Oh, I agree. It's just that he said it was something definate. Come to think of it I seem to remember him saying some guy at a gun show told him about it. I am pretty sure it's BS though. Not that it can't happen.

    Even though they'll have a rough ride getting anything passed, if Klinton or Osama win, I have no doubt prices will start going up after November.

    Buy while the buyin's cheap.

    I have noticed prices already creeping up due to demand. Many FFL's I know are reporting record sales so far this year. I know many of the big dealers are having a hard time keeping any stock of Glock/AK/AR mags, they sell so fast. I know some guys at CDNN, even with the mag price increase, they have sold over 5k Glock mags in 2 weeks. Scary eh?

    people learned enough about the last ban, so now they're planning ahead. i just wish manufacturers could ramp up production to keep prices the same.
