    Now that America has officially proved its stupidity again, how bad will the run on guns & ammo be this time around?

    Someone better go through the classifieds and start marking everything 50% higher.

    Hopefully not... my wife still needs to buy me my Xmas presents!

    But seriously, I wonder how long it'll be for online retailers to jack up their prices...

    I'm glad a few months back I purchased enough primers, powder and projectiles to last for a year or two or five. :thumbup:

    I've got some .357SIG practice ammo that I'll let go for only $100 a box of 50!

    Glad I bought my Kimber and about 4-5,000 rds of ammo in the last few months!

    Plus, now we'll never get to the bottom of Fast & Furious!

    So, what's first?
    Executive orders:
    banning Internet ammo sales?
    disallowing concealed carry in any state but your home state?
    removing any requirement to be a citizen to vote?
    removing all officers from the border states?
    removing all "stand your ground" laws? (yah, I know that's a states right, but that hasn't stopped the feds yet)
    helping the cartels overthrow the Mexican gov't (oh wait, they're already doing that)

    Care to add any others?

    There won't be one. However, I'll sell you a nice Savage 110 left hand model for $1500.

    Price gouging only works when dummies fall for it and pay inflated prices. Don't be a dummy, it'll save us all money.... It'll be business as usual, nobody is losing their guns or ammo

    I celebrated voting day by buying 570 rounds of ammo. Okay, 500 were .22LR, but...

    I stocked up on primers, powder, bullets and ammo for calibers I don't reload several weeks before the election. I'm ready.

    In the last 7 months I picked up enough primers, components, powder to last me 2 years or maybe up to 4 years. :laugh:

    I think I will teach myself how to reload as I foresee ammo supply dwindle and demand go sky high... Glad I have the week off, I can get to the stores early tomorrow!

    Regardless of any actual concerns I think we will see a run on certain items. This will cause a temporary inflation on the items that become hard to find. Last time this happened I should have sold every firearm related item I had for double what it was worth, it hit a new low 12-14 months later after everyone realized the sky didn't actually fall. I assume the same will happen again. Oh well, I stand to profit over the next 12 months, let me know what you need. ;)

    Oh do tell. We have a president who lacks senate support. How is anything going to get done? It won't, it will be like the last two years.

    Lot of cringing and doom and gloom, but ultimately, nothing.
