Not to jinx it - but I can't fathom why this is happening. We are not out of the woods yet by any stretch given that the 2A has been raped in NY, CO, MD, CT, heard maybe MO and WA too.

Good to be an AR buyer these days...

People fear a ban less then they did. And some makers are starting to catch up on orders. Supply goes up and price goes down.

Yea I imagine they pushed production into overdrive. Now the market is slowing down and they have found that they may have a surplus on their hands if they don't drop prices now before people completely stop panicking. I work in the food service business and believe it or not it happens the same way with food. Its about to happen with chicken right now, you better buy because chicken is going to be triple what it was.

About the same as those who have to run out and buy the newest biggest tv and then a year later they are far less than half the price.

I'm glad I didn't give in to the panic. There were a few times I almost jumped on "deals" that I knew we're insane. I'm just lucky that I had enough supply and stumbled on pre-scare ammo prices from time to time.

I thought about unloading my M&P 15 back in Feb but decided to hold. I've accumulated about 10 30rd mags without paying more than $20. My powder, primer and bulet supply has been good. Luckily I've had a great reloading source when others have been dry.

AR and mag prices are definately falling. Almost back to prepanic prices. Now to find some CCI Mini-mags and I'm good. Might put in about 10,000 rounds of bulk .22 once supply is good again.

I was at a LGS earlier that has a ****load of ammo. They were limiting it to people who bought a gun but now are selling one box a day at good prices. Picked up a box of brass .45 for $21.99. Some ******* in front of me was shocked at the price they charged for .22LR which was 18.99 for 325 rds of Federal. I told the guy that was the best price on 22LR he would find. He thinks he's just gonna go to Wally World. Some people are just ignorant.
