Armslist . com is a great place to find used guns locally,its like craiglist for guns,but don't expect to find a deal on there at the moment. You'll be overpaying by twice or three times what any AR or other semi auto is worth probably.
how long would you suggest i wait??

It's hard to answer that,how bad do you want one? Do you feel like you need to have one in case they pass the AWB? Or would you just like to have one if they don't get banned?

I would at least wait until the market dies down a little if you must buy before they vote on the AWB. That way you may only have to over pay by hundreds instead of thousands hopefully.

Besides how much are AR's regulated in California anyways? Don't they already force you to buy a model without any of the normal AR fun stuff on it anyways?

Might I suggest a different route? Right now, a decent AR style rifle and a few mags will run you $2000- $2500. The herd smelled rain, and is in a stampede.

For HALF that money, find a good .22 rifle. And get a M-N 91/30 or M44. AND an 8mm Mauser- and maybe an SKS. There is a ton of MILSURP ammo out there CHEEEP for the SKS, M-N, and Mauser.

While everyone is is yelling the sky is falling, and trampling their neighbor to get into the gun show, you will be at the range- shooting. And laughing.

Doesn't California law say that AR's have to be loaded with a stripper clip?

You'll only be loosing 2 rounds but you'll also have a much bigger and meaner cartridge to work with.

Plus m1 garands are just plain sexy.
