The glut of arms and ammunition will occur very soon. Take into consideration the "Hidden" stock piles. Many dealers and distributors held back stock from buyers betting on higher prices. That is called Salting the mines. In the old days of the West a hanging offense. Sometime I think old laws were the best.
Didn't think I was shouting NS, and I'd never talk down to anyone here. That's why I framed it with IMHO. You're right about holding back. At the show I mentioned, there were dealers that had the parts I was looking for to finish my AR, but wouldn't sell. Going to another show this weekend. We'll see if this news loosens things up any.

Just hope the demand for lowers and BCGs subsides. Not looking for a complete rifle but I definitely want a few lowers and such for the safe.

Interestingly at the Central Florida Gun Show last weekend, the prices for the guns were not elevated. Shoot Straight, which is about the biggest retailer in Florida as it has stores in about 8 cities, has not raised their prices. Now they used to dicker at the show, and did not Saturday, but the prices are still MSRP or lower. I guess their large size keeps the other guys in line.

Ammo prices were up. Heard today of a store selling 9 mm Winchester White Box for $33 for a box of 100. As my Ruger gags on it, I am not interested, but is one of the better prices I have seen around.
