  • Gun store madness

    I went by a gun store today with a buddy, he wanted to buy a pistol. The store was packed with people, everybody buying something. Three out of four wanted a AR or AK of some sort. Dealer said there's none available. One guy wanted a new SIG 556, dealer said can't get 'em. Back orders for everything months out....They did have a pretty good supply of ammo, in bulk. Cases of .223, .40, 9mm, 7.62x39, .45, etc. Just watching the people made me nervous. Two guys came in and bought a case of .40, some Glock mags, and a few other items, heard the dealer say $400.00 and some change. At least some businesses aren't going under.

    If you think that is bad, you should have seen the stores on November 5th.

                    I will take a look this weekend I think I know where yours talking about. I try to stick on the west end of town. I try to keep the work truck off of Grand. For not a huge city Grand Ave and 24th St are a nightmare. But I hate traffic anywhere. I have no computer at home and its 5 bells so I'll check in Mon if I find anything good.

                      It is down by the Army Navy store. I seem to recall it is a yellow building with a wheelchair ramp in the front. It's been a while though.

                        They were going for 1.2K at the last gunshow I was at in the Carolinas :mad:

                        It is supply and demand... the panic buyers are demanding the supply;)

                        Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
                        beat you to death with it because it is empty.

                        The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.

                          I was down at Wally-World buying spray-paint ala' Big Saw and stopped by the sporting goods counter to check-out. The poor cashier was answering calls about ammo availability. His pistol ammo stock was sold-out of the popular calibers, down by 50% on the less popular stuff. he told me that he had just gotten an official notice that Wally's ammo stocks were depleted in eastern Oregon, Bi-Mart was sold out too. The store still had lots of 22LR and 12ga so I grabbed a brick of 22, I think I'm at pre Y2K levels of 22LR now.
