I noticed some posts from 12-20-2012, discussing the rush on anything deemed "assault rifle, high capacity" etc. that I posted on... So here we are, a year later. Guns are plentiful, ammo is flush (well, .22LR is still struggling in some places), and you can find PMAGS by the dozen for $11/each. Last year, watching the classifieds, I was shocked and amused. Shocked over the price increase on a Colt AR- people were literally buying them at Walmart for $1,200 Tuesday and posting them here for $2,200 Wednesday... and completing deals Thursday! I was amused because I felt (luckily I was right) that these guns would never be worth the $2,200 paid for them. Today, they sure arent. PMAGS are not worth $50 each either. Overall I think most of the members here were able to avoid the madness by being prepared before the AWB talk- they owned rifles, magazines, and have enough ammo sitting around to stage a strong offensive against a zombie horde. I think one lesson from last years madness is to be prepared; you decide for what and how to do that. If last year you thought pulling $2,500 out of your savings account for a rifle, magazines, and precious ammo, then I hope you prepared for the immediate loss in value. If last year you avoided the rifle classifieds and scored a sweat deal on a non-tactical low-capacity Ruger revolver that no one else was looking at... well, you were prepared! Merry Christmas!
