It seems that in almost every thread that has the price of an AR or ammunition in it, comments about, and allegations of price gouging crop up. Here's what I am thinking: NFA classified firearms are incredibly expensive. Any full auto weapon that can be legally purchased, costs exponentially more now than it did to originally manufacture it. Is this price gouging? What do you think? How about the price of ARs right now? Is $1500 for an AR that would have sold for $750 a month ago price gouging? Or is it supply and demand? $12 magazines now selling for $35? And would you rather stand in line for when the latest shipment of magazines come in in the hopes that you will get one for $12 or would you rather be able to buy one for $35 whenever you want?
