Let's face it, the AR is really nothing super special. You can hang all kind of cool crap off of it, and it's easy to use and maintain, accepts magazines...

And when people buy them at these exorbitant prices, they're enabling these price gouging ass holes.
Absolutely -----Stoopid annoys me anyways----

i know guys! i like my AR, but if i didn't have one, there is no way i would give that much for one. i want to build another one, andi still ain't giving that much for the parts either. i am going to just sit back and wait things out.

Agree on waiting- thought very hard about buying another one when "it" happened cause i knew what was coming pretty quick - decided to wait it out like last time. Its like ammo now, i got it but always lookin for a "deal" tho

Ammo is starting to come back into my area finally. Keep in mind, the panic hit West Monroe almost a solid month after it hit everywhere else too, so we haven't really had it too awful bad. Just bad enough to piss me off.

Check out the "sold out" threads in general rifle discussions. Someone contacted the remington ammo plant, they said they were two months behind on orders before the Connecticut shooting. Kind of puts the theory of bare ammo shelves into a new light.

Anyone remember that S&W m&p15 I traded a ditch witch for and everyone thought I got ripped ? Yea yea the one with night vision , day/night lasers , bipods and every other lego you could put on it , that one , yea the one I ended up selling for 800.00
'' kicks self in ass followed by epic facepalm ''
I am actually doing nothing with ammo or guns right now , I refuse to get caught up in it , I want to get into reloading but not even going to look right now .

I am such a wonderfull husband , just scrounged up 3 new tires and one nice used one for the wifes car ......... none match LMAO
I did change her oil and blow out the air filter , I HATE THAT STUPID FREAKIN CAR I HATE IT I HATE IT I HATE IT , I have already tried to total it once and came close but no luck , like 1500.00 away from getting there but I am feeling lucky the next time .

If you total it on purpose does that count as insurance fraud?
