    are we buying out of fear for a ban or fear of prices being jacked up?


    dont get me wrong, i've got 1k .223 in a shopping cart right now but i dont know if i'm buying it b/c i'm afraid there will be a ban/shortage or b/c of the price jump

    I scooped up a few hundred rounds of Winchester 9mm at Walmart simply because I think people might hike up prices just because they feel they have a rationale when really it isn't a good rationale at all.

    Well that, and my local range charges $13 for a box of 50 and this was cheaper lol.
     
  3. Buy what you want now as long as prices haven't gone up because of a knee-jerk reaction. If the 1k .223 is the same price now as it was last month, buy it. If it's a lower that was $110 yesterday and is $150 today, hold off.

    Prices will come down pretty fast when people realize that Obama doesn't even take office for 2.5 months.

    The immediate election shock prices aside, there's no reason to believe that ammo or guns will suddenly start getting cheaper. Could there be a reason in the future? Conceivably, yes, but I don't see one right now.

    I'm buying a 6.5 Creedmor lower and 2 more 5.56 lowers, and am still planning on building a reloading setup.

    My S&W M&P15R just jumped $100 today on Budsguns. :wtc:

    I don't want to buy anything to hoard and resell later for a profit. All I want is to secure the stuff I personally want to keep, shoot, and enjoy before it gets too pricey or illegal to do so.

    I have made the decision that as a response, I will do the following things in protest

    A) Lifetime membership in the NRA
    B) C&R
    C) Pressure my GF to finally finish the process for getting her CCW.

    All he has to do is sign the damn thing. Takes all of 3 seconds. Most liberal senator ever, don't forget that.

    Except for the introduction and passing of such legislation through the house and senate which will be a bit harder.

    Some of you guys must have ulcers by now.

    That won't take long either. Never underestimate the irrational.
