Nathan, it is sickening, but just be patient and wait it out and i think that the prices will come down as supply goes back up.

i sure hope so,, and honestly the ass hole side of me hopes nothing gets banned just to teach all these morons a lesson for buying firearms that are being sold at such silly prices,,, all there doing is rewarding some prick for selling them that high

imagine the look on there face when they paid $3000+ and in less than 2 weeks that same rifle is only worth $800,, that would be poetic justice for me

i agree! IMO, it's nothing more than panic buying by people who fear there is going to be another AWB like we had in 1994. i saw the same thing happen in the early 1990's, that is happening right now. huge rounds of panic buying and hugely inflated prices. patience is the key IMO. just wait it out.

within about a year or so it pretty much stabilized and calmed down. prices were still higher than before the ban, but they still came down to a reasonable level once the panic wore off.
