    In the shadow of the recent attack and Obama's response has anyone seen price gouging as with Cheaper Than Dirt in 2008?

    Not yet. But, we haven't had the 'official' announcement that this was a terrorist attack. They're doing everything they can to avoid that, but honestly, they can't keep it quiet forever - it will get out. And when it does, and the people realize we really are under a threat of domestic terrorism, coupled with more gun control from el Presedente, I do think we may be faced with another run/price gouge.

    Anyone want a 10/22 for $1,200??

    You mean "slightly cheaper than gold" I thought they price gouged every day.

    I figured the UCC shootings would cause issues. Not even a blip on the radar. Hopefully the CA shootings won't either.

    It is us shooters that cause the shortages and positions vendors to raise their prices...everyone panics and clears the shelves. Could be everyone has so much stock piled it won't happen again. I know I'm well stocked.

    The only thing I've seen in the past couple of months is a shortage of firearms for sale on here.

    Yes and no, I will never shop at Northwest Armories again for how they raised the prices of the used AR's to $1999 after Newtown. I lost it a few weeks later with a staff member who said "We sign everyone up for OFF because we care about shooters." so much so that they're willing to sodomize your wallet.

    Imagine trying to make your money back on that purchase, you'll be waiting until the end of days and then some.

    $1999 for a quality build is a leap from the insane price of $2k for a basic rifle. I still see them at silly high prices in pawn shops too.
