I would like to be as optimistic as you. I'm glad some of us still are. However a lot of our home grown "American gun manufacturers", are owned by outside entities. I can't help but wonder if manufacturing can be tweaked a little to further shortages and thus affecting prices. Its always about the bottom line. I hope you are right but I can't help but wonder. A "crisis is a terrible thing to waste". I hope I'm wrong.

Hey I just say a borchardt handgun for sale. It was a pre production prototype with a serial # of 22. If you guys can all get together and put $125,000 in my PayPal account, I will gladly buy it and post some pictures.

In 1973 I bought my Winchester 94 30-30 at the PX at Ft Lewis, WA while I was stationed there. I paid about $79 for it, brand new in the box.

i think firearms are like anything else. some will increase in value and some will decrease. it all depends on the firearm and it's level of quality. if we had a crystal ball and knew which ones were going to worth mega bucks one day in the future, we would definately have bought a few more. kind of similar to the muscle car pricing explosion of the past several years.

supply and demand will generally set many prices. if there is high demand and short supply, then prices tend to be higher. IMO, with the current political scene, and our present administration, people are fearful of what could or might happen come next November. so this reflects into what people want to buy and if they feel that in the short future they may be restricted, then deman goes up and the manufacturers have a harder time with supply, so prices tend to increase on what is available.

Prices will only go down well after there is a deep reduction in the demand and a huge increase in the supply. Period.

Ammo prices still haven't come down, even though supply has greatly increased. But that is because materials costs have gone up and demand is still super high!
