    Good sign...store full of defensive rifles at good prices!

    Went to a shop here in NH, and while their prices for ammo were preposterous, they had ARs, AKs, HD shotguns galore, and though the prices were a smidge high, they weren't ridiculous. It was nice to see a wall of black rifles again :). The store was packed, people were buying, but they still had GOOD firearms and accessories on the shelves. I know NH is out in the hinterlands, but this store is right outside our biggest 'city' so I'm taking this as a good sign.

    Palmetto State Armory has AR's pretty much every morning. Sometimes even 1 or 2 after lunch.

    I've noticed an increase at my LGSs but can't say much for the prices.

    A local shop has flat top M&P 15s for sale at $999.
    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    Id be like a kid in a candystore in there. Stuff is starting to come back slowly in shops round here. Maybe a good sign indeed.

    Well it could be that this store has been pricing high enough to keep the demand at a reasonable level.

    Still that is very high for a bushmaster, But sign of the times I guess.
    Picked up a Complete upper I needed at Fleet farm for with in 10 dollars of what it sold for last year.
    They had what I tough was an over priced AK at 999. It was a better one but still high.
