Supply and Demand.
After the panic buying, and the current production starts to replace what was sold up, there is a very good chance that Supply Sided Economics will full adjust the costs down.
The only thing that ruins the market forces is Gov Action and Regulation, which makes everything more expensive. And of course, the 'fear' of the Gov Regulations is why people are panic buying right now, no?
We will see what happens. Ammo is still being produced on 'overtime' schedule, as well as the firearms.

I am looking forward to buying some inexpensive good quality firearms in a year or two from these people!

There are 4 Colt LE6920's NIB on Oklahoma City's ArmsList today from different sellers. Each f0r $2200.00. They were $1088.00 at Walmart 2 weeks ago.

That 3 grand for a LE6920 (if that is the model you were looking at) is WAY over priced. they should be around 900-1000 and 1100 for one with Magpul furniture. I was lucky and bought a new LE6920 with Magpul furniture for 1050.

I just got off the phone with a friend who talked to one of his friends who saw an AR-10 platform in the store for $5900+

If you live in Wisconsin or MN head over to Fleet Farm. They have AR's in stock same price they have been all year. Picked an extra one up this morning.
And Mags at the normal price.

What something costs two weeks ago is irrelevant.
What something costs today, that you want, is what matters.
Yes, it might come down when the "craze" dies down. What this trend does show is that the ones buying the guns do not trust the Government to leave them alone. They fully expect them to regulate them into obscurity. When that happens these high dollar prices of today will seem like chicken feed.
I remember the days of buying AK's all day long for 269$.
Colt AR's were 369.
SKS's were 69 bucks...I bought of bunch of them for that.
I remember getting the "Shotgun News" and buying Milsurp Mausers for 69 bucks.
Mosing Nagants could be had for as little as 39 bucks.
Lets talk about ammo...
how many of you would like to buy a 1000 rounds of 7.62x39 for those AK's for 69 bucks?
How about 1000 rounds of .223 for 89$
Then came along the Brady Bill. All of a sudden the AK's were going for 850 each. AR's were 1000...overnight.
One thing that you can bank on, when the hysteria dies down, guns will never be as cheap as they once were. One of the most achievable goals of the gun banners is to price them out of existence. They don't have to pass laws banning them really, all they have to do is make them unaffordable, by taxing them into oblivion or regulating them to death.
Either way, the end result is the same, for whatever reason, you wont have a gun.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

Their worth half that much in actual dollars.
These are what is known as the FsRP. Feinstien suggested retail price.
Bat crap crazy prices on rifles I wouldn't even own considering what was available all day long prior to Newtown, Conn.

I had been thinking about an AR for some time and doing a bit of research. I hadn't really intended to buy one till later in the year, but saw a Gander Mtn sale flyer for the Saturday after "Black Friday". I decided to go ahead an I got a Colt M4 LE6920 with the MAGPUL stock, forend, BUIS, 2 30 Round PMAGs, etc. As things have turned out, I glad I decided to buy when I did! I've got a couple more mags, but had I known, I would have gotten several more when I had the chance. For once, I actually got lucky on buying something at the "right" time!
Back in 1959, I had the chance to buy a Winchester Model 21 double barrel shotgun, new, for $125 (which was a LOT of money back then) and didn't, and have kicked myself in the butt since! I still have the Model 12 pump that I bought instead for $89.

No thanks. For what these semi autos are going for, I could outfit my entire extended family with lever guns.
The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

I sell you 4 of them for that with extra mags. Then drive right over to Fleet Farm and replace them with Adams arms for 999 each.
