Default Wasr 10 at the gun show!

I went to a gun show Sunday morning with my wife looking for primers and their were a couple tables we walked past and they had Wasr 10s for sale. I seen them at 10 differant tables and the cheapest one I found was $1199. Its crazy how much the price of firearms have jumped. They were less than $500 last year for the same firearm. Glock extended mags were going for $100 and a box of federal bulk .22lr 525 count was $50.

There is no way that a WASR 10 is worth that much, but I'm not saying that I didn't believe you.
I saw it too at a local gun show they were asking $1100 for one, the same table had what used to be $69 AR lowers for $400 & 75rd AK drum mags for $600.
After a quick pass through I told my friend that I came with, that this will be my last gun show until the gun market calms down & prices return to normal.

The demand has set the price so high! I took my wasr to my lgs to see what i could get for it. He offered me trade for a used kimber pro raptor II. It was hard to pass up

The Gun Show invasion is very educational. I see where a gun show had 20,000 attendees. I had no idea that there were that many people who were so unprepared.

Im not saying I have enough ammo for WW3 but I have a few thousand rounds for my basic calibers other than 9mm I only have 500 or so. But I cant find stock to be able to buy. I went to a local store today and I always look to see what ammo was avalible and they had 10 boxes of 45Acp so I bought 4 boxes and I dont even have a handgun in that caliber yet. But I know I will have one in a few months so I bought a few boxes. Plus I have some from when me and my wife rented a 1911 at the range. And I bought dies for 44mag because I found them on craigslist for $20 and I dont own 44mag. But finding primers locally is next to impossible, so when I save up a little bit I will buy bulk online.
