supply is starting to catch up a bit. i was out shopping for a lever gun today went to 6 differnet gun shops and outlet type places. all but one had at least 2 AR15 in stock. one shop had a true soviet SVD, 3 ak47, a sks, an ar15 in 9mm, 2 rpk and a rpd and 3 different ar15 with another being raffled off by the waukesha sheriff's association. all of which werent inflated in price

ammo is still non existant. but loading components are easy to get excepting brass in 223/308

btw an ar15 is a pdw or personal defense weapon. just like the coppers use. if its a pdw when they have one its a pdw when i have one.

I like the term Modern Sporting Rifle, but PDW is a pretty darn wonderful name for an excellent weapon.

I have been saving all my brass though I have no idea how to load it, or the the equipment to do so. My thought was to sell it or trade for reloaded rounds.

The gun prices have peaked for now. Those who "had to have" a SUR have already bitten the bullet and went into debt. Ammo will catch up in a few months.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

9mm carbine for the average Joe? Beretta Storm or Hi-Point carbine. Or something amazing like a Calico.
