Guns are seemingly coming down some in price! I saw this week that Kiesler Law Enforcement had a special for officers of Rock River Arms Rifles for $850. So I assume normal market prices are going to go back down some also. That price was unheard of a couple of months ago!
For those who had a few items and made some profit off of it to possibly buy something else or survive the cost of life no problem all for them! But for those who hoarded ammo, guns and other parts to take total advantage of fellow shooters and sportsmen. I do not in the least feel sorry for them if they have to eat their greed!
That was one of the main reasons those who wanted items and ammunition could hardly find anything. Dad's couldn't even find 22s to take their kids shooting! And when the did the prices were astronomical and most could not even afford them. For those who paid the atrocious price to get something. It happened, it is over with, you are enjoying what you purchased so forget about it! But remember we will have to continue to fight the Dem. Liberal Party as a whole over gun control for ever, and it isn't over. They will continue their attempted attack on our Constitution and our Second Amendment. The day may come when you will realize regardless of the price you paid you made a good investment!

I suspect that supplies of "Like New" ARs will improve noticeably about the time the holiday shopping season gets going.

I picture conversations similar to the following occurring all over the country this November:

Mom: "I need some money for the kid's Christmas gifts."
Dad: "Really?"
Mom: "Yeah really! Maybe you need to sell a couple of them rifles you got tucked away in the back of the safe."
Dad: "You saw those?"
Mom: "Yeah...I saw those. Sell a couple. You'll still have near a half dozen remaining. While your at it, sell of a case or two of that ammo you hid under the bed in the guest room."
Dad: "You saw that too? Hell woman, you'd have me defenseless!"
Mom: "No, I just think a small portion of the stockpile can be cut back some. Plus it would be nice if the guest room had room for guests instead of just ammo."

I went to a gun show yesterday, got there at opening time and the parking lot was only half full. The same show in jan was full with a line the length of the building and halfway back waiting to get in. We didn't even get out of the car.

Yesterday .22 ammo was $12-14 per hundred depending what it was.
9mm, .40, .45 seemed to be $ 30-45 per box of 50. Reloads about 2/3s of that. I can't remember off hand what .223/5.56 was selling for.

AR type rifles any where from about $750 to $2000 depending on what they were. I really know nothing about these so I don't know why the price difference.

There was a guy selling mosins complete with bayonet and all accessories for $149, he had a bunch of them. Kicking myself for not bringing one home.

Not surprised to see gun prices returning to normal. Right now they are so hard to feed that they become expensive paper weights.

Gun prices definitely seem better. Ammo, on the other hand.... $30/box of 9mm is still almost 3x what it should be in my opinion.

I noticed on slickguns that they had about 10 different AR's for under $700. It does seem to be returning to normal, except for the ammo shortage.
