    Work with a lady whose dad owns scrap metal yards, and the companies who buy the raw materials have shut down all of their purchases until the first of the year. He's running over with metal, and can't move it unless he wants to accept less than he has in it. Not saying that he's the absolute authority, but he owns 3 yards and all are overflowing right now. So I'm thinking that if the metal prices are getting jacked, someone up the line is fabricating reasons for it....

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

    Many gun parts are made with plastic, which is made from oil, and until recently the price of oil was way up...

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

    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.

    $40 for an AK Mag???

    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.

    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.
