    Personally, I think it's funny.

    All the lay about, just woke up, and WILL go back to sleep current gun buyers "should"'pay a premium for waiting until now.

    I may even take advantage and sell off some surplus to all of these sheeple. :D

    Johney Come Lately has always paid a premium but don't worry, half of these clowns will be looking to sell a year from now and take a 50% to 70% bath ^^THIS^^ stuff in order to fund there next flat screen TV. :D

    Tack

    I got lucky, finally finished my build in November, then headed to the boat. I had shot what little bit of ammo I had the extra money to buy.

    I go to the boat, then pay bills and wait to get paid to buy bulk ammo in .223, yep I got screwed. Lol.

    River Bend Arms, a great guy btw :D had some he was kind enough to sell to me, and ship down my way.

    I went out and about when I got home and found some decently priced, if not normal. Brass cases 5.56 for $9.99 a box. Had about 40 boxes in stock.

    It's like a time warp, KTB! Stock up, then get on that leaky ol' boat. Then have to start over again only to get sucked in again. Better that the catfish get them than the gov't! :D

    I listed a Spikes BCG and a Spikes LPK on EBay yesterday. They were extras I had laying around for a future build (which currently seems pretty ambitious), and I had maybe $180 total into them. They were each started at $0.99, no reserve, 24hr auction.

    BCG brought: $385
    LPK: $197.50

    I wouldn't have dreamed of asking that price, but if folks are determined to overpay....well, okay. These are items that are not regulated anywhere in the U.S. as far as I'm aware, and might not even be directly impacted by a ban!

    I've also seen the following in the last day on EBAY (with actual bids this high):

    (3) used G17 mags: $280
    (1) new G18 mag: $320+
    Various M16 BCGs: $300-450
    Magpul window Pmags: $90ea
    (1) crummy Aluminum Bushmaster AR mag: $100+ (everybody who watches the news knows Bushmaster makes the baddest, most dangerous gear)


    I got in line on multiple online sites and will just hope for the best backordering PMags, BCGs, etc at rational prices....funded by the wallets of the irrational and ill-prepared.

    Wow. Ouch. But wait, this has to be better!

    It's the same as the argument as San Francisco having an $11 minimum wage now -- you see, the average house costs $585,000.00 and so if businesses are forced to pay at least $11/hr. then it's only more fair and the economy will pick up because everyone will make so much money!

    Similarly, the more you spend on guns, parts, ammo and taxes the more you are just helping the economy! Don't you see!?

    Going to try out some EMAGs from Magpul. Supposed to fit 100% AR platforms, but have been modified to fit Export type AR's. Just under 22$ each. At the time of purchase there was no back order, but you never know.
    Below is from US Tactical website: www.ustacticalsupply.com


    The EMAG (Export MAGazine) is a lightweight 30-round 5.56x45 NATO polymer magazine that features a number of aesthetic and functional changes from the original PMAG®. While EMAG remains 100% compatible with the AR15/M16 platform, its unique geometry is optimized for foreign-made weapons such as the HK 416, British SA-80, M27 IAR, and others.

    To enhance compatibility with double and triple magazine pouches as well as aftermarket mag couplers, the EMAG features a slim, rib-less, anti-snag profile. Front-to-back and side-to-side dimensions have been adjusted to ensure compatibility with as many 'STANAG 4179' compliant weapons as possible, including most non Colt-spec AR15 rifles.

    EMAG features the same pop-off Impact/Dust Cover as the PMAG to prevent dirt and debris intrusion and protect the feedlips from impact damage during storage. When not in use, the Impact/Dust Cover can be stored on the magazine's floorplate to prevent possible loss.

    For easy and accurate identification of loaded round count via the large, dual-sided MagLevel windows, the stainless steel magazine spring is coated with mil-spec black oxide and the indicator coil painted with a high visibility orange color. Numerical indicators are added to the body to identify 5, 15, and 25 loaded rounds.

    Features:

    Impact and crush resistant polymer construction
    Constant-curve internal geometry for smooth feeding
    Anti-tilt, self-lubricating follower for increased reliability
    Multi-use Impact/Dust Cover keeps dust and dirt out of the magazine during storage and protects the feedlips from potential hard impact damage during transit
    Black-oxide coated (MIL-DTL-13924D) USGI-spec stainless steel spring
    Transparent MagLevel windows on both sides of the body along with a painted indicator on the spring allows for easy determination of rounds remaining
    Textured gripping surface and flared floorplate for positive magazine handling and easy disassembly

    Made in U.S.A.

    Stock up on .22lr and .177 pellets, before the prices inflate on those too, so you can still do some plinking without paying rediculous prices

    The people do seem to have lost their minds. I had bought a 500 case of Wolf back in early November for $139. I sold it last week for $300. .60 a round for steel case. I almost felt bad about it. Of course, that was almost. Then I remembered I just made $160.:D

    I was at a gun show in Vegas last weekend. I came across a Delton, price 2300. I stopped and asked if it was a total Delton. Yep. I asked if I could do a field strip. He said no, but I will for you. Yessir it was all total Delton. I told the guy I would pass. I came back to the same table about an hour later. Their was a guy wearing 500 dollar shoes, new blue jeans, nice silk shirt, and he had just bought it. He was asking questions of the seller on how it operated. :mad:

    This is not gonna turn out good.
