The demand for firearms right now is just insane! I have witnessed AR15 rifles that were selling a few weeks ago for $700 now selling for $2000+.
Accessories such as PMAG's and Beta C mags have tripled in price and sometimes even more. The thing that just amazes me is that people are willing to
pay these crazy prices.
Places like gunbroker which have bids for rifles and pistols; I agree the prices are insane yet people are still buying. The gun stores around here to
include Academy are sold out of anything close to an AR platform. Have to wonder if all the government shenanigans will turn everyone's personal
defense/hunting weapons into some kind of paper weight or make them criminals because they (by actions or lack there of) decide to disregard
Getting ready to move overseas so after the first of the year everything I own will be sold; I can not import or export weapons to my new residence.
Very restrictive gun laws there yet even they allow pistols and rifles for certain local nationals; just not many places to shoot except at a few
military ranges..... everything is very expensive compared to stateside prices.
Some (the rich) have illegal full auto AKs but like any government they do not want the locals having arms that could be a problem for the government
if there is an insurrection...I love my wife and she plans on us having something at the farm even though we know everyone in our village of approx
100 souls; community watch must have been developed there?..I am to old to go toe to toe with a sword anymore but if I had to I would give it my best
thrust...better to die fighting than going peacefully to a gas chamber or expose your neck to a B.G. expecting mercy IMO. But that is just me...
I absolutely do not want to live in a border state with nothing but a paper weight to defend my family and the hacienda. Disarm the border states and
I give it 5 to 10 years before many places will be like Mexico with drug cartels running the show. They can buy or intimidate just about anything or
anyone they want. Sorry but that is the way it is. Cartel dude says, "you do this me and we will give you money; if you decide not to do what we say
it will get very painful for you and you family..now be a good boy and take the job.....no pain and much gain or we will cut very important pieces of
your...get the picture"?
The Gulf Cartel runs this area of the border and are more into "leave us alone and we will leave you alone". A few years ago the Zetas were in
charge and created anarchy on both sides of the red river with plain old terror, death, and mayhem. Probably not as bad as many believed but the paper
and news constantly reported cross border shootings, hangings and dismemberment's got several people's attention especially the ranchers. This
sounds like some wild west movie to many big city dwellers, but our crime rate is actually very low simple because when a B.G. tries something around
here he/they are usually met with armed resistance form different alphabet agencies (who carry both on and off the job) and the high percentage of CHL
holders who live here. Much more civilized than say Chicago who bans guns yet has broken the "500 people shot this year" for a new all time
Someone will come along now and say see all those people would be alive today if there were no guns..EXCUSE ME...The law says no guns in Chicago
already; law breakers are exactly that, they break laws. So, I can only assume they have made the decision where you can take your law and shove
A friend of mine conducts classes for concealed carry and has done a 'booming' business both for his school, gun range, and rifle/pistol sales. AKs
that were $350 mid year are over $700 now and ARs are sold out. Even 2 months ago NCIS checks were breaking records but this last few weeks they have
basically crashed and are unable to to answer the phone much-less do the back ground checks; conspiracy? A five minute call has taken over 5 hours to
get through if what I have read or heard is true. I hope the prices hold until mine are sold...Greed is not all bad and my stuff is not junk to me.
Yes makes one wonder why all the rush to buy, no?.......I do think 2013 will be an interesting year for many...
