Guilty of supporting one LGS for a $20.00 + tax non-window 30rd PMAG and another LGS for $32.00OTD for a 20rd ProMag SKS mag. And, just dropped $78.00 on 4 Elander 30rd AR mags.

All panic-driven. And didn't even "need" any of them, just wanted to try the extended SKS mag.

The panic buying will end. The guns and parts will find their true market value, much less than today.

As soon as panic buyers realize that not much on the political front is really going to change, there will be people selling to pay the credit card bills. (I am betting by mid-Summer) The buyers will be flush with what they want/need, and the sellers will be needing to move product to pay the light bill and the hired help.
