The high rate of on credit fear driven purchases is slowing down. There will be a surge of used guns hitting the market due to the slowing economy. The cost of new firearms may remain high. The used guns are going to be a buyers market.

Split it in half. Spend half on ammo for what you have and if possible get a used buy in something you don't have but can get ammo for. My thing now is to make sure both my Wife and I have guns we can still shoot well enough given our physical issues.

Most firearms last a long time. Once the boom is over prices will return to normal or even lower. Manufacturers are buying new equipment while demand is high. They will pass that cost along to the consumer. A year or so from right now baring another sandy hook firearms will be at least as low as last year if not cheaper. Once the current demand drops off people will stop buying guns completely. If it works like I think it will firearms will be cheaper than ever.

Depends. Another mass shooting that gets the AWB pot stirring again. Dealers are still riding the wave of the Sandy Hook tragedy. Black rifle prices are right up there and there are no deals on hand guns, (at least around here). The elephant in the room is next year's election. Should the President win back both houses of Congress, all bets are off.

it depends on too many variables to accurately predict and those variables can change in a very short period of time. supply and demand, economic climate, political climate, price of raw materials, ect.,,,,,,,
Mines busted too axxe
IMHO I think in the time period you mentioned they will remain level-

I've seen shops go over MSRP on certain guns at shops I frequent and those prices are coming back down. MSR prices are coming back to normal. Still going to see inflated prices on the used market due to people being in for more than the guns are worth.

Generally speaking They ARE coming down! The MSRP on My Catamount 12Ga. was $899. If i didn't Get Extra mags and a sling and Shell Holder for the stock I'd have walked out of the store for just oner $800 from a $749 price....My next big purchases will come AFTER I finish Gun Smithing classes and Get My FFL's & NFA. We will get some sort of Light MG and a MAC10 or M-11 with a Can,..and a can for the .22's

Spot on. As soon as the supply chain becomes replenished, the manufacturers & retailers will have to drop prices to keep cash flow going.

I could be bad wrong but I don't think the manufacturers ever raised prices on guns OR ammo-
It was the greedy cash sucking middle man who done the dirty deeds
