Walmart is still the cheapest for me in Virginia. The shelves were quite bare but I did manage to get a box of 45 ACP today!! On the same note about gouging, I recently traded my Glock 22 for a nice 1911. The fellow only wanted 2 of the mags that I had. He only had two mags for his 1911 so he said it was only fair. Well I decided to place one of the leftover Glock mags on eBay. Needless to say I am SHOCKED at how the bidding is going!! I mean if someone wants to pay me a nice chunk of change for a 15 round Glock mag, then so be it! I won't argue.

And once again Mr Wonderful, Feinstein and company are trying to put people out of work! by attacking our Second Amendment Rights and the Weapon industry~But claiming the opposite.
Can you imagine the impact a ban will have on those working in the weapons industry along with the small shops! Bottom line is if you can find what you want and within reason best be getting it! The prices are not going to go down for some time if they ever do! I remember during the previous ban when pre ban rifles then were bringing $1600.00.

A local shop was moving bushmasters for $1495.00 as fast as they could bring the boxes up. That was a week ago today.

LGS here had NIB "GI issue" aluminum 30rd AR mags for $30.00, 30rd PMAGS for $39.00 and up, single Troy 30rd mag. He had plenty of both, and only one high-end Colt M4rgery.

ETA: Have no issues with what people ask for/buy things for... I see plenty of folks spending stupid money on stupid stuff - so there must be plenty of it to go around.

I am checking ebay at the Ruger BX-25, just got 2 in the other day from midwayUSA. Normally they are $23.99 or slightly higher at the LGS. Ebay has 5 mags for beginning bid of $400 and buy it now $550.

Then seeing some 2 mags for average of $125.

For the sick at heart, do not select on the link below, regarding PMAG's.

Stuck my Plum Crazy lower up on GunBroker.com this morning. The first bid of $100 came immediately. I've already made $1 in profit.
