Obama and Biden ticket
prices are about to soar and things are going to be hard to get.
and to think I was about to go buy the last 2 33 rnd mags for my G17 at the store up the road. I guess that was an easy decision.
if by Lieberman you mean Biden
yeah that it. i was watching the news and they were talking about the possibility of mccain picking lieberman
Time to revive my 'buy before banned' thread?
either way, we're fucked.
i was hoping it was going to be Kathleen Sebelius... because even though she is anti-gun, she learned that she's a minority in Kansas... and has been letting pro-gun bills go through lately.
We've got at least a year before anything materializes, stay calm.
it may be a year before anything gets put on the book but prices go up on the chance of a potential problem. there doesnt have to be anything in writing for the fear to jack prices.
where do i buy a 9mm ar and which one do I buy? i will buy the first suggestion that's good and people agree on.
Jacking up prices wouldn't help the retailers at this point. A lot of web retailers that have sprung up post-ban would likely be put out of business by a new ban, raising prices and hording inventory in the face of a ban that would close their doors would be a bad choice.
Plus since they can still manu and sell this stuff, competition still works. If one guy jacks up prices before he has to, the other guy will just sell out his stock and buy more.
Wow... an Obama/Biden ticket is bad news for gun owners. They're both very staunch anti-gunners.
and yet they are still doing it. look at the prices of ak's
i am going to blow at least a grand in magazines alone
i think thats a legitimate supply side thing. they just arent making as many anymore since that romanian factory shut down
Also, Bush has even stated that if another AWB came across his desk, he would sign it...this Congress has had the least votes on issues in how long? Some like 25-30 years?
AKs have been going up steadily for quite a while now due to other issues. ARs, which have the exact same risk of being banned, have remained pretty steady.
To be fair, most AK's are significantly cheaper than AR's, which drives demand up, so prices go up. Cost of ammo is also a factor, even with the increased cost of 7.62, it's still much cheaper to shoot than .223 is.
Still hope Obama loses tho.
Yeah - a bit of that going on.
I expect another alarmist email from the likes of CDNN soon.
Not cool at all
Prices will go up far before then.
it is like gunbroker.com and people charing $500 above sticker for some guns
GET A 50BMG BEFORE IT IS BANNED BY CONGRESS
I'm going to get a bunch of magazines for my G19, and a couple of ridiculous 30+ capacity ones just 'cause. And an AR lower that I will hopefully finish before anything happens.
I know a lot of this stuff is new, but there IS a chance that all of our stuff won't be grandfathered in, right? How likely do you guys think that would be?
zilch, the bans are cosmetic
