Original Ft.Worth gun show
 
I just got back from the Ft.Worth gun show.
Man,That place was nuts! Plain Jane AR15's were priced $2k-3k,and P-mags were $60.
I really can't believe that people would buy these weapons for that kind of money.
223 ammo was just as bad-1k rounds of Lake City was going for $800.
There was a dealer with an old 180 series Mini 14,and he wanted $1800 for it.

The prices are going crazy with any type of semi-auto weapon.I'm glad I have plenty of them setting in the safe,along with plenty of mags,and reloading supplies.

I did find someone to buy my Uberti 1873 rifle.It rarely gets shot anymore,and I want to get a new action so I can get my 6.5 Creedmoor put together.

Panic buyers and opportunists. Even if they introduce a bill on Jan 3rd, it will take at least a couple of months and I think we're still 2 years away from a real chance.

I'm just waiting out the storm at this point, which sucks because I need some new magazines and can't find any.

I'll admit I was waiting to buy an AR, but after all this mess I wanted to go ahead and do it. Couldn't find any locally and Internet prices soared but I did get my hands on a Mini 14 tactical and really couldn't be happier. Some cheap mags would be nice but never the less. Shame a few dumb@sses have set all this mess in motion again.
