In the past 6 mo. noticed about a 5% increase, figured it was a fuel cost thing.

I have seen ammo shortages, but not necessarily prices going up.

I guess I'll find out this weekend at the gun show.
i went to the las Vegas cross road show on sunday and the usual
ammo dealer that was there was sold out ,,yes sold out of ammo
and u seen how much they bring ,,i was jaw dropped
stunned and the gun show vendors were all happy so they must have
had a good 2 days ,,i walk out with nothing i just could not believe
that no ammo but they were the only ones there usuly 2 dealers ..
I just bought an XDm 9mm. I ordered it a couple days ago and it had gone up by $10 by the time I picked it up. I got the lower price but everything on the shelf is up by $10.
Went to a gun show Saturday...prices were up on AR type weapons. Most everything else seemed to be about the same as usual.
Not gun prices but ammo prices. A box of 450 Marlin bullets went from 21.99 to 40.00. Holy Cow!
One more step and it's on!
I'm not seeing much in PA in the way of price increases. Walmart still has plenty of ammo. I've been looking at my local gun shop and Bass Pro and thinking about picking up a .22 for plinking and shooting with my son to keep the cost down. Just can't decide among a S&W, Browning or a Ruger. Can anyone help me decide? I know, dumb question.
I am glad I got all my mags well ahead of time. Centerfire Systems, Inc. still has AK 30 rounders at a very good price but some are already sold out.
You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

I don't buy new guns. I've found the used gun market falling. Great time for buyers! In tough economic times, guys tend to give up their goodies, like 1911's and Harleys. When that happens, prices drop tremendously, and vultures like me are standing by, ready to pounce.
