Can't say for sure in a model-by-model rundown, but every "LGS" that I've visited over the past 2 weeks has been decimated of "EBRs" - including Min-14s.

I did actually find one shop that had a high-end Colt LE-something, a sporty SAIGA in 762x39, a sporty SAIGA in .308, plus a couple Springfield M1As. They were also selling aluminum "GI" AR 30rd mags for $30.00, and 30rd PMAGs or $30.00-$50.00 depending on window or generations.

Speaking of Mini-14s - if you have an old Mini series 181 that you would be willing to do a FTF-only trade for a minty sporty SAIGA 7.62x39 in West PA - please PM me.

Mini's will be on the list.

As much as I'd like to think any new AWB that's being discussed won't have an effect on them, I seriously believe even classic western style firearms like revolvers and lever guns will eventually be on the chopping block if it passes. As soon as gun control groups get a ban on hi-cap rifles and pistols, the next step will be a ban on pumps, levers and revolvers since we all know a good shot - like Jerry Miculek or Lucas McCain from The Rifleman - can accurately shoot a pump or revolver as quickly (or quicker) than 99% of us shoot a semi-auto rifle or pistol.

The ultimate goal of hardcore gun control advocates is to turn the U.S. into another Australia and Great Britain. Essentially, only single shot or double barreled shotguns and possibly bolt action rifles will be allowed for the common citizen. Sadly, in the example of GB it won't stop with firearms. While it's a tired old saying, the sad truth is when we outlaw guns, only the outlaws will have the guns!

Absolutely true. They will take the position that "we wouldn't have robberies if guns were not so concealable".
Your SAA will only be legal with an 8" bbl. And nothing smaller than a 1911.
