Got an email from my buddy in San Diego last night. He went with someone to a local gun shop to pick up a Saiga.When he got there all AR's, AK's and Saigas were sold out. He told me they were even low on plastic guns for some reason. He saw the last AR costing $1300 walked out the door. He said they were charging MSRP. I'm sure if things continue prices will surpass that. Back in '89 I was ripped off by my local gun shop and never forgave them for it. Don't depend on mom and pop stores to treat you any better than the larger companies, cause money talks.

Amen brother. And again I say AMEN!!

Your "loyalty" to "mom n pop" will be forgotten as soon as they see an opportunity to make a buck.

I ordered 4 AR-15's before the CT shooting, 2 have shown and are in the
safe. Dealer and Wholesaler have both been dead on honest in the past they
say the remaining 2 should be here in the next 2 weeks. They also say that any orders placed after the CT shooting are a crap shoot.

What was interesting is the 2 AR's I go on the same day were over a
hunderd S/N's apart, That tells me they are cranking them out as fast as
they can.
