    Problem is that in a few months when things settle down, prices will drop to *normal* prices again. There will be people that will want to unload thier AR's and will either be asking too much for them as they will not want to lose money on them, or will have to take a big loss on them, or just keep them. God Bless

    Sounds like a bad move. Would have been sold in a split second to buy a better AR lol. Even RRA's are going for less.

    Yep, cost of stuff always goes up for many different reasons.

    It can be a steady modest increase overtime, or normal inflation, or influenced by a sudden scare that something might become extinct, like with firearms. So manufacturers and their retailers take advantage of the consumers whom are willing to pay exorbitant prices for stuff.

    Sometimes it doesn't mater what the cost of production is. If you have something they want bad enough. Someone will pay what-ever your price is IF they have the money.

    How much does it really take to produce say........a pair of shoes, a shirt, or even a pair of designer jeans in China or India? Every year the big oil companies boast about their record braking profits over last year? Things are getting way out of proportion here folks!

    Reminds me of a Hush Puppies commercial: we can make it cheaper....but we can't make it dumber

    And yes....from the looks of this firearms buying pandemic.

    I'd guess that 99.9999999999999% of the citizens of the United States of America, do not trust their Government to leave them alone, and DO expect them to regulate us into obscurity.......very soon

    not if he cant find another one at this point and AWB is passed, then he doesn't have one. If he had a couple, I would have sold one.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    The 'proposed' AWB... won't be passed overnight. Or passed at all in it's current form. Just my .02

    Well I'd say the price is inflated, considering Rugers website has the MSRP at $1995. With that being the MSRP actual retail values is probably $1500.-1700.

    I think we can bet money the anti's will have everything but the 'kitchen sink' in the AWB. They know it doesn't have a chance of being passed that way, but it gives them a lot to bargain with.

    Yup, I'm thinking at this rate, I'll probably never own an AR.

    Never been able to scrape the funds together, and if the restrictions pass, that's it for that...

    Speaking of "out of proportion", did you know that the government 'makes' about 5 times as much on each gallon of gas you buy than the evil big oil company does?

    Supply and demand. I was at the LGS over the holiday and they had 6 AR 15s on the shelf. We looked around the store at different items. After about an hour they were all sold. Guys were purchasing them 2 at a time. They had 1 FN SCAR asking $5,400.00. no takers when I was there.

    Here's my experience so far. I know this isn't the best time to conduct business but, just like everyone else, I'm trying to jump on the band wagon before it's too late.

    I have a Rock River .223 AR-15 with very few rounds shot through it. The RR is naturally for a right-hander, and throughout my military career I'm tired of getting hot brass resting against my neck or down my shirt, it be hot, hot, HOT!

    Went to my local FFL AR dealer and worked out a trade of a Stag Arms model 3L, .556 left hand model. The Stag is / was listed at $920.00 and the dealer offered me $760.00 for my RR trade in. I'm thinking to myself this is too good to be true? But he ordered it! I did this December 26th and then went home and decided to check Stag Arms website to try and find out availability. They're completely shut down Christmas through New Years (Good for them) and according to their website, must be extremely back logged.

    I'm hoping the left-handed models are not flying off the shelves like y'all shooting wrong sided!

    Anyway, I committed to a thirty day waiting period and that's it. If it's not in by then I would not be interested. It's not in my DNA to wait months /years for a gun or custom holster.

    My entire military career was one big, "hurry up and wait"... I will never stand in a line in a restaurant to eat ever again. Because, it hurts my shoulders to stand in line at "parade rest"

    No price gouging in my one and only experience so far.
    I think, therefore I am...
