    Nothing.
    I'll wait until everyone who panicked wants to offload some stuff when the market is flooded and supply is caught up again. :p

    I buy the stuff that nobody else is interested in for the stuff that I've already bought, knowing there is always going to be a future panic buy;

    * Upgraded grips for the old-faithfuls
    * Pistol rack for the safe
    * New barrel & gunsmithing job for an old Colt 1911

    I'll go back to buying guns and ammo when everyone else is ready to stop and start selling theirs.

    I'm selling.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    NEVER point a gun at something you are not prepared to destroy!
    AND for GODS sake, get your finger off the trigger until you are ready to squeeze the trigger!

    Not a panic buy for me, I have been researching reloading stuff for awhile now and finally ordered a press before Christmas. It is still not here yet, but it will be. :)
    I did stock up on reloading supplies so I would be ready when it came in. I also bought a little more ammo, just in case.

    Be safe!

    I picked up a few AR15 lowers, but they were on my list of things to get before the panic started.

    I bought a lot before the election, so no panic. I just wish I had known I would win an AR-15 on Christmas Eve. Now I can't find any ammo for it.

    I was in a large gun store yesterday and they are expecting at least a year before supply levels with demand.

    Everything I've bought was on my list, but the "panic" did speed up my purchase. My collection is small in compared to most here though. Bought 1k more rounds of 9mm, looking to add an 12ga Mossberg500 Persuader HD 7+1 later today.

    Can't find an AR around me with in 200 miles or I'd have one of those..

    Nothing. I have no intention of overpaying right now. During Hurricane times down here in florida they call it price gouging but its illegal during hurricanes.
