I stopped at my fave stores Fri after work & one had sevral ARs & one had sold out, looked like most of the hunting guns were accounted for but a few, just walked past the ammo & reloading supplies & they seemed about rite.

So far it looks to me its just a rush of panic buy'n for the tactcal stuff & everything else looks to be fine, what are you seeing ??

They are panic buying so they will be prepared to arm up. Soon enough, they will be panic selling when reality sets in and they have to make the house payment, buy groceries and pay all the bills they just skipped this month to panic buy when all this blows over.

i almost dont think people are panic buying, but buying to just turn around and sell for profit.

It's the same down here. They had stacks of guns though. I got there as it opened and was the 50th in the door. 45 minutes later I was walking out with a .380 body guard and a M&P shield .40.

The guy in front of me paid 1799.00 for a S&W AR..... A bit silly if u ask me lol

I have a few 22 lr's. What's a good price? I paid about 3.42 cents each-CCI Blazer-bulk Federal-I figure 12-15 cents each. Relative to what I see 223 ammo being sold, this is quite reasonable. Course, if you voted for obummer, I won't sell you didlly. I only have around 10 to 15,000 and the store won't open for awhile.

Have not stopped at a gun store as the parking lots are all jammed. I really want to order a handi rifle to deer hunt with, but am going to wait for this mess to calm down. Think I am one of the few people in the country that does not want an AR.

As I was walking out of church yesterday, I overheard two young men that are in high school talking about trying to get someone to sell them one.

Dunham's in Columbia had no 5.56/.223 ARs but some of the .22LR variety.

Plenty of handgun ammo, though.
