    We had a gun show this weekend down here in GA...I didn't even bother to go..and the local range in walking distance to the Gun show as packed to capacity..they are usually over priced any way but now their ammo and few guns left in stock are outrageous... They had a Saga 12 gauge going for $1600...really? c'mon man..lol 1 AR was over the 2K mark..so I just enjoyed a couple boxes of 9mm that was 15 per box for "Range" ammo..but o well life goes on..

    Gun show this past weekend here in SC... The fire marshall made them open early because there were too many people wrapped around the building waiting to go in! I had friends that waited 3 hours to get in.... Insanity! For me it's a problem of pricing. Our shows around here are at a large convention center, so you have to pay $5.00 to park and then $7.00 at the door. That means that right off top you're down $12.00 and you're not even guaranteed that there will be anything worth buying.

    Just for the heck of it, I took a look at Gunbroker yesterday. AR prices seem to have come down a bit over the past few weeks. A few Olympic and other lower tier brands were down to 12-1300 from their 1800-200 a few weeks ago . But I am also interested in a Ruger 10/22 and found that there were none in stock at the most likely on-line sources and the prices on GunBroker/Armslist mostly started at $400 for this gun that regularly sells for $200. a 10/22 is not on anyone's ban list. This is pure panic buying and will regulate itself if the bans are defeated.

    went to summit co. (akron) show this past sat. i have learned to stay away until about 2:00pm. as to be expected prices were stupid high. i dropped a little over 1000.00. the panic atmosphere must have gotten to me. large ffl dealers were very busy. i lost my HK usp .45 in a fire. i have been wanting to replace it since Sept. naturally HK prices are now somewhere in orbit. i purchased a nib FNX .45 s.s. three 15rd mags 830.00. 500rds of wolf 9mm practice ammo 167.00. two 50rd boxes of wolf .45 19.00 ea. four steyr m95 enblock clips 5.00 ea. accept for the enblock clips, ouch,ouch,ouch.

    I will not step foot in a store or show until the prices come down.
    And when the market crashes, it will crash hard.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    I went to the TD gun show also in Greenville, the only decent deals I found were on some .45 and I picked up a few boxes boxes of Independence .223 for $13/box.

    I geuss I'm just not seeing it around here. I mean ammo is hard to find but prices arent to out of wack for what ammo is around . Most ammo is up a couple of dollars a box around here but not crazy prices. Actually one gun store that I would browse at that use to be outrageous and sometimes would even carry their guns above what the mfg suggested retail has brought heir prices down a bit to a more reasonable price.

    Is that Wolf ammo any good? I remember years ago going to a gun show with my dad and we saw tons on Wolf ammo but it wasn't selling. Vendors started having sales to move it. We have a gun show coming up soon at the Berea. I haven't been to a gun show in about 7 years so I may go just to be going.

    I haven't been to a gun show in more than 13 years. The last thing I bought then was a couple of pounds of Unique powder. The time before was a few loading manuals that have one caliber per manual with info from various powder, bullet, and primer manufacturers all together. Lots cheaper than buying a couple of Hard Back books.

    That's when I'll finally pick up my first firearm. ;)
