Panic buying has made the prices go from $80-$150(depending on manufacturer) to $250-$500 depending on the person you're buying from. A local guys has two RRA's for $275 each, you could get em' for around $125 before all this crap started. It's really sad to see firearms owners taking advantage of each other like this but I guess they're selling at what the market will bare.

I bought a lower for $99 a month before the shooting. I got a second lower for $109 two days before the shooting and the gun shop had 12 left. I scrounged and bought another $109 lower the day after the shooting and the shop had 4 left. I doubt they have any left now.
I have now sold them all for a tidy profit. Yep, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Did you laugh in his face? Tell him to sell it to some jackass with more money than brains.

Here's one from the gun show today. They got an ear full from me when I saw it. Along with the people selling PMags for 75-100 depending on if they're 20 rounds or 30..
