Everyone is stocking up.
Here's the silver lining of the gun control threats: manufacturers here and abroad, being the greedy capitalists that they are, are going to ramp production through the roof. And we will gladly soak it all up!
The result of the left's foolish threats is going to be to absolutely PUMP guns and ammo into every nook and cranny of the US.
And that's a good thing. The more awash we are in guns and ammo, the harder it will be to take them all away.
And the more readily accessible they'll be if we ever need them to, shall we say, defeat domestic tyranny...
What sucks is I’ve heard anecdotal reports of some of our better local gun shops, instead of putting them on the shelves, they are selling what ‘black rifles’ they get in on Gunbroker instead. I can’t blame them for going for max profit right now, but a local shop should cater to their loyal local customers first. They should just mark the things up and put them on the shelves.
Hell, at least Walmart is putting theirs out for folks to (QUICKLY)buy, without a markup. Heck, I was talking to the guy at the sporting goods counter at our local Walmart on Christmas Eve, and that morning they got in 4 Colt M4s(the good ‘LE’ models), put them on the shelf, and all were gone within 45 minutes. At least they are getting them in and not marking them up. The guy said they were ordering them daily, and have stepped it up on the quantity. I was fortunate to buy one back in November before the hammer came down. Still haven’t shot the thing yet. I could probably about double my $$$ if I wanted to sell it, but I’d MUCH rather keep it.
Never imagined Walmart doing better for the customers than the local shops. Dammed crazy times we are in right now......
