Do we screw ourselves on prices because of this hysteria?
I think that ship has sailed when I saw a dozen or more bidders on a SAR-10, and a price over $1100.00, last week on GB. (and the auction wasn't over)
When the ammo counters fill up again, you will see that the prices have risen. They know we are willing to pay high prices, why wouldn't they charge high prices?
