Freaking hell yeah. That is the way it's SUPPOSED to work. Market demand. The demand is through the roof, so are the prices. If the prices get too high, people stop buying. People stop buying, demand drops. Demand drops, so do prices. Prices drop, people buy. People buy, demands increases.... On... And on.... And on.... And on...

These are basic economic principles that were taught to me in the FIFTH GRADE. Also why you don't see be Bitch too awful much about prices of most anything (that and I don't own an AR...)

If free capitalism is a concept that even a Mississippi educated 12 year old can understand, WTF can't grown assed men and women? So many of whom have college degrees these days?

Is this price nightmare just that a nightmare that I can hope to wake up from after Christmas or is this going to continue?

I recently (as of about 5 days ago) finished building my first AR-15. I went to my LGS to get the castle nut tightened down because I didn't have the wrench to do it. A guy in there spotted my shiny new AR and when I was leaving he was out by his truck. The following conversation took place:

Him: Noticed your AR in there. Good lookin' rifle man. How does it shoot?
Me: Thanks man. Not sure yet. I haven't even shot it. I just finished putting it together a couple of days ago.
Him: Interested in selling it?
Me: Nah. I think I'm gonna hang onto it.
Him: How much you got in it?
Me: About $700 or so as-is.
Him: I'll give you $1000 cash for it right here and now.
Me: Thanks man, but no thanks.
Him: These guys know where to find me if you change your mind. The offer stands or come back at me with an offer of what you'd accept. I'm sure we can work it out.

People are desperate I guess...
