Stopped by my LGS yesterday- needed to pick up some 20 g buckshot to go with a Christmas present. They had every employee they had working (and asked if I could spend some time talking with 2 folks that were in need of information). Place was packed!
They are sold out of every AR/ AK type rifle they have (except one Cali compliant DPMS- which NO ONE wants to buy!
) They have about 40-50 a few days ago. Their prices on rifles, ammo and mags did not change- if it sells, it sells. If we sell out, we sell out. We do not screw our customers.
Meanwhile, gun show 30 miles away, ridiculous prices on everything- and herds of people clutching money trying to get in the door.
And THAT is why my LGS is my LGS.
