    Great Buys After the Panic?

    Anyone else thinking about the great buys they are going to be able to get after the AWB doesn't pass, and people realize that they shouldn't have paid $2500 for an AR, $1500 for an AK, and $600 for a 10/22?

    I figure the market will be flooded with people selling them back at the same time that manufacturers are producing tons of them to restock shelves... could mean some low prices on nice guns.

    What do you think?

    Great buys usually abound when we go through a recession, jobs are lost, and people need cash. If you're fortunate enough to not be one of the ones having lost your job and you have cash on hand, you can pick up some things at great prices. I wouldn't expect a big flood of supply on the market until such large scale recession hits.

    I tend to agree. Prices will moderate only if demand doesn't stay high. I know dozens of people who were on the fence about buying pistols or semiautomatic rifles who will be paying whatever, whenever there's a chance. And then there are guys like me who just want more of all of it.

    i kind of wonder how long pricing will take to return to "normal" levels, or if the market being flooded with stuff people over-paid for will keep costs up. i guess time will tell, right?

    that being said, i have seen some good deals over the last few weeks. i picked up a like-new S&W 4006 TSW w/6 mags for less than $400. conversely, i also saw some guy trying desperately to unload a Glock 17 w/2 mags for $800.

    I kind of doubt we see a glut of second hand supply of guns. I'll be keeping an eye out for ammo though.

    Here's to hoping.

    For now, i'd just like to see ammo get back to normal.

    I sincerley hope that there is an "after the panic" buying spree.

    Considering the out of touch idiots that we have running this country, the fact that the major manufactures have years of back logs as well as the ammo companys, states like New York enacting laws that infringe upon your right to bear arms, other states talking about it and just one more whacko going on a killing spree in a target rich environment somewhere...it may be quite a while until the "panic" goes away.

    If a weapons/ammo manufacturer is two years behind on orders, has added to his labor force in an effort to increase production and has ordered the necessary materials to support increased production, as some say they have, and the weapons ban fails, they will be in deep dodo. Many orders will be canceled and the high demand will vanish until prices return to normal.

    Another what if. What if the ban is approved and the weapons in production are on the ban list? Will they be grandfathered? If not, it will be the financial ruin for some companies.

    Doesn't look like the weapon ban has a lot of support from the rural Democrats, and the Republicans are not going to go for it if for no other reason than to spite Obama. I will probably be purchasing guns more for their conceal ability rather than their capacity. I have a number of pistols, now maybe I will go with some revolvers.

    I believe that obama will continue to press for more and more restrictive gun control his entire term. Therefore, while people may build up their personal supply of both guns and ammo to a comfortable level, I don't envision them wanting to sell it. Rather once people get what they consider a decent supply they will want to maintain it and even add more as funds permit.

    Food for thought....

    There have been a lot of LE gun buy-backs going on. People turning guns in for a $10.00 gift card to K-Mart.

    Been thinking...could you show up and offer someone more then $10.00? Might run the risk of a crime used firearm? But if you go to a dealer, and pay for the transfer. You would have a paper trail and if anything ever happens you would have paperwork of from whom, when, and where you got it to cover your fanny.

    Just think of that widower who's turning in her late-husbands 1950 S&W Model 36 in mint condition!

    IF there is a ban then the way it looks is once the stock of banned items runs out.....that's all folks

    People hate to lock in a paper loss. Eventually they succumb. I hate to think what conditions would drive someone to part with a functional live saving tool like a rifle.
