    I bought my converted Saiga from Classic Firearms a couple years ago for just over $400.00. They are now listed for $999.00. That is majorly f-ed up.

    It seems like around 2005 saigas were 300 at any gun you went to and they were stacked deep

    I got all my Saiga's for about $350 each. I didn't get a 12 gauge. Now it will cost three times that price.

    Even worse, I have a 2003 Shotgun News. 1,000 rounds of mil-surp .30-06 for $99.99. 1,000 round cases of 7.62x39 for $80-90.

    You can't buy a real "assault weapon" for yourself, but your money can and will be used to buy one for an "authority" to opress you with.

    300% increase in a lot of things.

    .06 CCI Mini Mags to .18, but getting a little better.

    9mm FMJ .19/round to .70, but getting a little better.

    FN 5.7 pistol $800 to $1,400 (peaked at $2600), but getting better

    Got mine for about 425 last year.... Later i saw them for 900! I held on to mine though. Prices are on the decline, i can now start shooting it knowing that i should be able to find ammo somewhere at decent prices.
