    Well, I can't speak for everybody else. I can only tell you what happened to me. I was out on that there lake in my 41' Sea Ray Sundancer (that's a pretty roomy bass boat), just minding my own business. I had my guns with me 'cause you don't want to leave them at home lessen they fall into the wrong hands. So, anyway I'm sippin' on a beer and tryin' to figure where in hell I can hook the trollin' motor on the Sea Ray. My cousin Billy Ray Jim Bob (on my wife's side of the family) is out there on one of those jet skis acting a fool (well he is a fool, so there weren't much acting involved). According to him, and I have to take his word for it, a wasper stung him on the butt and he goosed the throttle and lost control. Here he comes full speed right through the center of my bass boat on the starboard side. It sank quicker than you can yell "One of you grab the beer cooler!!"

    All my guns and ammo are at the bottom of the lake. That's my story (the insurance company will verify it).

    Do you feel pressure to buy before ban?

    I'm not buying any firearms that we've had on our wish list. We were planning on getting through Christmas before making any large dollar purchases for ourselves. Hopefully we'll still be able to get what we planned but I'm not going to spend money we had earmarked for the kids out of fear of what "might" happen. I did buy a couple mags I've been meaning to get but hadn't gotten around to before.

    I was very frustrated at the ammo case at Walmart today - it's the lowest I've seen it in a long time. I wasn't look to stock up out if panic... I'm going to the range Thursday with my bestie, we haven't been in ages and I can never seem to build a stock pile, I can never refrain from shooting as much as I get my hands on! (That's the problem with ladies range days, I go to the range much more often than I would if I had to pay for it!)

    yes, there's definitely that feeling to go out and buy now! banning AR 15 platform rifles will just be the start,with many more bans to follow.we are in danger of losing are gun right altogether,if you think it can't happen,think again!

    Why wouldn't I feel the pressure after my country re-elects this kind of Administration.We have a corrupt media who protects a corrupt government.The Ozzies used to be self reliant rugged individualists who valued their freedom from the Mother land England and now look at them. They rolled over with not so much as a wimper.I know I know i'm just a dumb ignorant hick clinging to my God and guns and whose opinion is not considered credible by the majority of Americans now.My opinion is they will slowly erode the 2nd Am until its just a shell of its former self.The media and the drones that follow them will skip merrily down that road.If I had the money i would start buying.Call me what names you will, just don't call me late for dinner.

    I feel like I have what I need. I don't feel pressured to buy anything that may be banned. Most anything I'd like to purchase would likely not be included in an AWB. Truthfully, the next rifle I'd like to buy is an M1-A or Marlin 336. And the next handgun I'd like to purchase may be a revolver. A Glock 20 and Springfield Champ Operator 1911 would be nice. But the S&W 329PD has caught my eye.

    I was considering buying a stripped lower last weekend at a gun show to build a 14.5" dedicated home defense AR, but decided against it, for now anyway. I'm most likely to just use a pistol for HD anyway and have an AR already for any greater threats.

    Another AWB would obviously be seriously bad news. I along with all of you don't want to see that happen. But what I really fear are the currently owned firearms not being grandfather in. Or later down the road how this may impact carry laws and castle doctrine laws, or just general firearms ownership. Will there be any chance for the spread "stand your ground" laws in the future? Will the general idea of concealed or open carry later be seriously frowned upon? Will defense shootings be nearly impossible to defend against in the court of law? Will any defensive shooting be immediately looked at as a murder? Will we even be allowed to carry in a few years? Those are what I TRULY fear.

    These are nothing but "feel good" laws. Making people feel safer. It's like a placebo.

    If prices really go up again I may go into sell mode. Buy low, sell high.

    Yup. Just ordered an AK 47 today. I have wanted one for a while but didn't have the money. All this talk of the ban got me scared, so I bought one with a credit card.

    Nah. I can't stand all this hype, just annoys the heck out me. 6 months from now when it's all a distant memory I'll look to start up my addiction again.

    If I still owned any handguns, I might have picked up a couple of mags each for my Glock 19 and 31. Never a bad idea to stock up on mags.

    Of course, I offloaded those things about two weeks ago. Down to just an old, rusty Remington nylon 66.

    You cannot imagine how much money I save now that I have no guns to buy ammo for.
