The buying craze where you are.
How is the threat to ban AR/AKs, and the approaching end of the world (:rolleyes:) effecting you locally?
Here, it's like nothing has happened. I went to Wally World earlier, and they had a few ARs behind the counter and they didn't really have any .223 left (pretty normal since they never keep much on hand), but they had plenty of Winchester 5.56. We also have a local classifieds thing on Facebook just for guns. Some of the prices an ARs and Mini 14s were high, but not really bad.
So how is all of this effecting you?

Went to my local fleet farm their were about 10 people lined up at the counter looking at firearms i always check prices on bulk ammo only to find no 5.56, 5.45 or 7.62 in 1000 round quantities ammo aisle was bare at best

Well because of the high volume of people applying for permit her in NJ there is about a 4 month wait for one. As for gun sales my local shop said he is up to 500k in orders

Our distributor is sold out of ARs and almost everything semi-auto. They are no longer holding things. It's first come first serve. We sold out of lowers in 2 days and have one AR in stock. There is no bulk ammo to be had. Customers are asking when my next build class will be, I'm not sure we can do another as I can't get anything for lowers or parts kits. We ordered 100 ARs manufacturer direct.

I'm still at that "I need the money to buy more" stage.

I went to the LGS to pickup my new Glock, no waiting period here but they told me to come back in a day or two to see if my background check was processed. Apparently NCIS can't keep up with demand, here it normally takes 15 minutes for the background check...

I don't even own an AR or an AK. I am more into pistols and hunting rifles

Picked up my first AR yesterday. Asked about bulk ammo and my LGS told me the best he could get would be factory reloads at $350/1000. There is no bulk ammo out there according to him. I picked up 3 pmags with the gun. I'm probably going to ramp that up to atleast a dozen more. He had about 7 in stock but from the time I went in he sold atleast one more. Probably won't have any of the lower level on the shelf after this week. He's got a couple that run close to $2000. Probably take awhile to sell those.

What was that old saying??? Oh yes, 'They're selling like hot cakes'.....

I've used Cheaper than dirt and some other places to buy my ammo without much problems. The LGS's around here keep their inventory stocked the best that they can. I haven't run into any snags when purchasing firearms as of yet.
