I just came from Academy doing some last minute clean-up shopping. They were selling AR's hand-over-fist.
There were maybe 20 people lined up at the gun counter. The counter was lined with people filling out paperwork. I've never seen anything like it.

Maybe it's just me but I gotta say something...If you didn't want or need an AR15 before the recent tragedy,or are now just thinking about supporting the NRA when you had ample time and opportunity in the last several years,I don't feel one bit sorry that you can't find a gun or ammo in the mad rush.
Basically all these Johnny and Joan come latelys do is jack up the prices of any guns Ammo and Magazines,I saw a Gun Store trying to get through to Stag Arms to place an order and couldn't get through after numerous attempts.I'm just glad that I had enough foresight to buy reloading equipment,powder, primers, and stockpile brass before any insanity.
ACADEMY PULLED ALL THEIR AR15 RIFLES OFF THE SHELVES IN STORES CLOSE TO MEXICO 2 YEARS AGO,BUT YOU STILL SUPPORT THEM EVEN THO THEY DID THEIR OWN AWB

duka... I agree somewhat, but some people needed a wake up call, again. If the frenzy gets some off the couch and in the game, then that's a good thing, IMO.
Went looking for a Mossberg 715T for my Nephew. All Academy locations were sold out of everyting sport / AR style. Went to my local shop next.
They and one left. Had about 10 different .223, 5.56 models available. Didn't check Cabela's but heard they were out as well.
ARs are wiped out everywhere I've been. Same with 223/556 ammo and most 9mm ammo.
I doubt that academy has stopped selling them, more likely is that they are just out of stock and no idea when they will get more in from the distributor.
Until recently I have had no desire to buy an AR, but I have wanted a Ruger Mini-14 for a really REALLY long time. I haven't had enough disposable income to buy one but I would peruse various seller's website dreaming of the day when I could walk in and pay cash for one of those babies. With the rush on semi-auto rifles and the potential for a ban, it looks like I may never be able to buy one. Guess I had better get practiced up on my 22 mag lever gun.
22mag is a cool round. Can find 10/22s in that caliber as well. Enjoy! I too looked at minis for a long time. You may be able to get one for 800 or so if prices cool off. If laws get real stupid they may go up to several thousand bucks.
