I went to my LGS last Sat and it was by far the MOST crowded I have ever seen it. I couldn't believe it.
It was so crowded that basically the only people getting helped where the ones telling the counter people, "I will take this one!"
They where selling firearms as fast as the counter guys could get the paper work filled out.
The last gunshow I went to was very crowded and I have noticed prices for handguns creeping up 10-20 dollars here and there.
I also saw a post on a local forum from a guy looking for SP primers and willing to drive a LONG way for them (even to another state).
The race is already on.
If Obama gets re-elected the firearms industry is going to implode.
Don't forget to factor in inflation ... the U.S. dollar is dropping.
Gasoline prices have not changed in 20 years (when priced in gold).

Food, junk silver coins, ammo, and guns are nice to have when the "Occupiers" make trouble this summer. I have a hunch we may be in for a long winter ahead, and it won't take much to empty the pipelines for food and primers. Don't pay attention to the hype, but shop around. If you haven't laid in your stash, time is not on your side. The Weimar Republic saw these burned for heating.
