I am wondering if they will not grandfather any of the weapons in at all. but if they dont go with the ban.....how long until gun shops get ar-15s back in normal supply and price.

I have noticed some (one) of the biggest online gun shop says they are out of ar-15s when you go to get one but everyday on their auction they have a new one going to double or more of the retail price.

loading up on a good pistol with a crap load of magazines and ammo was an idea.

right now. 2,000 dollars for an ar-15. you can get two good pistols and so many mags and ammo for less. lets say there is a "revolt" running with your ar-15 is a little heavy. someone with a pistol or two can do more.

a pistol with a crap load of mags and a hunting rifle sounds better to me now then an over-priced ar-15.

Never thought I'd see the day when there was a shortage of .22 LR or 9mm Luger. Even .380 is hard to come by.

Seriously considering a .357 Magnum at this point just in case. .30-30 hasn't been as easy but I can still find a box here and there.

The 9mm shortage is the one that stumps me. There is no real threat to that caliber. As for the .357, I have an old Colt Trooper Mark III that I shoot from time to time, usually with .38 rounds. .38 rounds are right behind 9mm in terms of stock, mostly gone.

Stopped in LGS here in Northeast Ohio today, there seemed to be a plentiful stock of handgun ammo- 9mm, .40, .38 ect... last week not so much. I think things are starting to be restocked slowly but surely now that the craze is dying down. Still no 223/556 ammo yet. Ill check next week- who knows?
