Gun Sales

This model was $619 with 2 mags and 20 rounds.
Back when the latest crisis started with gun and ammo sales I predicted that if you were patient things would slow down, the free market would kick in and prices would once again fall. Well I hate to be the one who said "I told you so" but it is happening just that way.
Today I went with my son to a large gun store and they had (and he bought because I told him to be patient) a Smith and Wesson M&P AR-15 with two 30 round magazines and 20 rounds of ammo for $619
 That is a good price and cheaper than you could have built a parts gun a year ago. Ammo is going to follow suit in fact if everyone would stop buying ammo for even a week prices would plummet and even the big box stores would have plenty, of course you can't get the sheeple to go along so we will have to wait a little longer but it will happen. Take 22 ammo for example, the government is not talking restriction on it and the FBI, CIA, DHS etc are not buying it up and the manufacturers want to make the sales so they are producing all they can at the moment and things will reach a saturation point eventually.
If government stays out of the way free enterprise will work and for now they are staying out of the way.

  1. $619 for a S&W AR?? That's downright reasonable. Would you mind naming the store?

    1. Daddy Hawk, below is the link to the store's web site. I don't know if they list that price on line, maybe it's a walk in price but that is the price they had today and yesterday.

  3. Duke,

    In my area, guns (AR's) are building back up on the shelves, but ammo is still a bit thin.
    The local Walmarts have been bone dry for ammo 10 days now????

    You can darn well bet that some "Knucklehead" Senator will re-introduce legislation for gun bans sometime in the future and this will all start up again.
    In the meantime, the big fear is that the Amnesty bill will pass and we will get 55 million new Americans that will forever vote democrat and it will kill the Second Amendment forever.

    The worst part is yet to come...

    1. Anon, I don't disagree with you in fact I have said as much in that people should not get caught in this trap again but for the near future it will get better, I think a lot better but I have also said before, do NOT get caught short again because next time it may be for real.

  5. I bet they had them sitting on a pallet when you went in there. Your right, if people would stop buying for a week, things would start getting back to normal.
