Oh geeze... I've got a few hundred rounds of normal .223 with another 100 frangible and 100 bullets (reloading type bullet, not cartridge) of tracer. Perhaps I need to see what the ammo market will bear for a price??

Have you noticed the same holding true in the handgun market, particularly when it comes to revolvers? I'm a glock man myself, but my better half prefers wheelguns. I'm thinking of trading an older semi-auto I have for a revolver...
What Thunderheart says about revolvers being underrated has been true for a very long time.
Attempts to sell massive amounts of revolvers not of the pocket .38 variety have pretty much failed over the years leaving the revolver market mostly specialized.
Because of this prices remain pretty flat. A cheapo piece last month is still a cheapo today and a pricey item last month is still pricey today.
But dont overlook the chance of seeing a desperation sale from time to time. Though storefront prices arent moving much on the private end a lot of folks are desperate for money to pick up something on the ban list.
Just three days ago a never fired Colt Anaconda popped up for $900 locally, at least $600 less than what many would pay, and was sold in a couple of hours.
I wanted it myself but by the time I freed up the funds it was gone.

Considering there aren't any AR's under 3000 to be found I'd say you are giving it away I'd keep it you won't be able to pick up another without spending considerably more the price is up 60% here in Missouri and ammo about the same

DPMS AR 15 I bought for about $675 six years ago along with about 1000 rounds and eight 30rd mags.
$2250, what do y'all think? Close to $1000 profit. I really like the gun but hard not to take advantage of the market.
There are TONS of ARs out there. I was just at Mega Sports here in IL today and the wall was packed full of them. You can buy one brand new starting at $900. Smith & Wesson, Bushmaster, Rock River, all very good rifles. They even had the Colt M4 LE rifles, although civilians cant buy that particular one. I put a down payment on a Rock River LAR Operator 2, sell price inlcuding two 30 round mags was $1250. IL has some of the toughest firearm laws in the country, second only to NY I think. I was able to purchase this rifle TODAY 01/30/13. Im chomping at the bit to get through the next three days so I can go get it.
