    I was talking with a friend (also a gun guy) about the feeding frenzy that is gun sales of late.

    My thought is a bunch of the guns people are buying while caught up in the current "gotta have an AR or high cap pistol" craze ---are going to come up for sale in a few months, softening the market and making for some great deals on very lightly used weapons.

    His thought is the frenzy will continue for some time ---possible for the next 2 to 4 years and/or the dems will in quick fashion make it harder to get guns, ammo, parts and that will keep prices/demand high.


    in the words of Bill O'Reily ----what say you?

    That isn't a bad conjecture, but that's really all we can do right now is conjecture.

    If BHO lets the reins go of the Brady nuts then people aren't going to be selling off all of these ARs and high caps they bought. I would submit to you that it is not a big IF at all, looking at his record in Illinois. That is ALL we have to look at of his voting record, and the things he has said that were anti-gun this very year.

    It isn't fun to conjecture about this stuff. BHO is ALL myth and that is what's so scary about the guy.

    I'd say

    Guns are a good investment right now.

    We may not be able to buy any more guns with the incoming administration.

    Tx might want to think about becoming a Republic once again.

    ST5MF, I second the motion on the Republic. The time may actually have come for it.

    We'd have to set up immigration checkpoints--the place would be flooded with refugees!

    Texas of course
    True...but we might not be able to sell them either. I could see them making all private firearms sales becoming illegal, making all sales go through FFLs. :(
