Curious, where are you? Same price in Ft. Worth (if you're there at the right time), wondering if they differ in regional price....

Maybe closer to 9 months - depends upon events. In spite of an anti-weapon press, their left-leaning political pundits and mavens, and irresponsible disinformation, the public in the end (thus far) have not bought into their rhetoric and lies.

Prices will stay up while the folks who felt shut out during the current "shortage" catch up with their buying up what they feel they need.

Be safe, be prepared, stay trained, and stand firm...

I noticed a definite drop in prices at a gunshow I attended here last weekend, especially compared to the last show in January. There were loads of AR's for sale as well as self defense caliber ammo. I saw a good number of entry level, NIB AR's for $899-$999 and many more in $1,100-$1,400 range. There was also a lot of revolver, 9mm, .40 & .45 caliber pistol ammo and 5.56/223 and 7.62x39 caliber rifle ammunition available. I have plenty already so I wasn't really looking to buy but I saw several venders selling 5.56 and 7.62x39 Wolf and Tula for $8 a box for 10 boxes or less, 10-25 boxes was $7 a box and over 25 boxes was $6 per. There was less .22 LR for sale than I would have expected and it was more expensive than pre Newtown prices, but it was available. Most of the chain stores are still running low around here but it is getting better and the prices are about what they were before the rush when you do come across it.

OTOH, I haven't seen an AR, AK or "black" rifle of any sort at the local big box retailers in month's aside from a few smaller LGS that are still selling at a fairly good mark-up over the pre holiday prices. That may be the reason there are still some "assault" style rifles in the mom & pop stores... nobody is willing to pay the premium for them anymore.

I'll get my AR and AK once the panic buyers start selling them all off.

Hopefully the ammo prices will be down in a couple more months I really honestly don't wanna pay $20 for a box of .22lr. I mean I have 2,000 rounds of it but I'm conserving what I have and only taking 50 rounds each time I go same with my other guns but less ammo only take enough to fill a mag or clip up besides 7.62x54R still very cheap. $7 for 20 rounds. Anyone know a site to get some cheap .22lr it's just for plinking nothing big.

I hope you're right. But unfortunately there are enough paranoids and conspiracy nutz who have bought into it totally and completely to keep the supply down for a while.
