Was at a local gunshow in North MS this morning. The line at opening was a good 150 yards long. Prices were pretty much as descibed in above post. Lots of ARs for sale. One vender had 1600 on them. These were from a local company I think called SNS.

We looked around found a couple of 50cal ammo boxes for 10 bucks each and called it a day. Crazy !

Visited the Yuma gun show today. Lot's of stuff, elevated prices. Great price at two ammo booths. Got the last lpk in the place tho.
Some people indeed thought that their stuff was gold. $99 for a M16/AR15 30rd mag. but lots more in the $20-$30 range.

But if you wanted a firearm, there was plenty to be found. My friends who stay here, said that this show was pretty poor, We needed to hit Phoenix or Tucson.
Don't think I will.

I called our LGS this week and they raised their prices on Pmags. I bought some the week before Christmas for $20 each and now they are asking $50 each!! WTF!! I'm glad we have a friend that has an abundance of them that will sell us some.

Wet to two LGS's yesterday. No AR's in stock and the shelves are nearly bare. They had one Glock 27 for $700+

Went to a show yesterday, a guy DelTons and Bushmasters for the low price of only $3500....I did buy some .223 for too much but I don't have any. Bought just enough to fill my mags, but at a buck a round, just stupid! The lady I bought from said someone came in Saturday and bought 100,000 rounds of .22.

I went to the San francisco gun show over the weekend, it was a freaking madhouse on Saturday- when I went through the door at 9:15 they had already let in 4500 people. All of the 5.56/.223 was GONE within an hour and .22lr was gone within 2 hours. I sold a bunch of my surplus 12 gauge 00 buckshot at a buck a round with no complaints whatsoever. They said that an estimated 10,000 showed up on Saturday, http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2013/01/14/record-gun-show-crowd-packs-cow-palace/ I was pleased to see on the news that they pointed out that nobody walked out with a newly purchased gun (the so-called "gun show loophole") due to the mandatory 10 day waiting period here in CA and they didn't show any crackpots in their piece either (which surprised me a bit). I went back on Sunday and it was like any normal Sunday at the gun show, albeit with far more empty booths than I have ever seen and little ammo left, although there was quite a bit of 7.62x54 still available though I didn't bother checking the price as I don't have anything that shoots it. I did bring a bunch of my surplus ammo and sold some of it. I was getting $40 for a brick of .22 and a dollar a round for 12 gauge buckshot. I didn't bring any 5.56/.223 but if I had I probably could have gotten anything I was willing to ask for it. Lots of people asking for it, and 9mm as well.

Definitely a sellers market.

Stopped by the ammo case at Walmart last week...they were out of a lot of things. There wasn't a single box of .22 left...not even the crappy stuff or the higher priced CCI.

A coworker offered me a H&K P2000 + 2700 rounds and $500 for my AR today. I told him to make it $1500 and I'd think about it...

You better have a REALLY nice AR.
