For crying out loud people! Be glad you live in a somewhat still free economy. It's called supply and demand.

True it is supply and demand but that doesn't stop us from being able to express our opinions on where prices for firearms and firearms related accessories have gone.

Most of the people bitching about the gouging are not in the market or did a piss poor job of planning. IMHO the time to prep is not now, it was 5 years ago. P3 is what I call it (Piss Poor Planning). If you wait for the last minute to prep, you will get gouged. If you think it is bad now, just wait til the AWB-2 takes effect. The already doubled prices will double again. Remember May of '86? Registered full autos doubled over night and have at least doubled again since.

When AWB-2 takes effect, I am going to be rich. I will buy a bunch of replacements marked LE Only and not change a thing except the # of $ in my pocket

'Price Gouging' is used correctly about as much as the word 'Racism'

ie; rarely used properly based on its actual meaning...
