    I have been watching the price increases in hi cap mags, ammo, and semi auto firearms and wanted to know what kind of increases and item are selling out in other areas?

    Reportedly, a 20% increase in ammo demand at this point. Given our latest election results, demand obviously isn't going to diminish soon either. Reuters reports a 18% increase in handgun sales nationwide. As the economy tightens, supplies may well decrease further and drive prices up. Add to that the crowd we now have running Washington and the picture doesn't get any better.

    I don't think the sky is falling here, but I also don't see any quick recovery on the horizon. Much like past recessions, we will survive, but this may take a while to get over.

    Buy now.
    Buy in bulk.

    At last GShow, hi-cap mags are 25% higher. Ammo is higher overall, but not 25%. Also, noticed that all local shops are out of AR15 inventory. At least 12 weeks backorder on RRA and Bushy. Maybe with the econ in the tank, we'll see some used AR surface...

    We've kept our margins, and many items, like AKs, are the same price, but some wholesellers have been increasing their prices lately.
