Went by local Wally-World yesterday, normally pick up a box of ammo or two when I go by.
No 9mm, no .44, no 30-30, no 30-06 left on shelves.
Did buy two bricks of .22s and a box of 12 gauge 00 buck, figured better than nothing.

Pretty smart business move. Take your stock off the market, reducing supply, other vendors run out, price goes way up, then reintroduce your stock to the market........

This morning our WM in Wasilla AK had a full display case of guns that are popular right now though it did look like the pistols were all gone, every single one. But then in Alaska we have more rifles than pistols for a very good reason.

Has anyone ‘shopped the Time magazine cover to read “Firearms salesman of the year” yet?

(So why *is* Obama purposely promoting gun sales? The natural result of his demagoguery and not-so-subtle threats - i.e. stampedes to the gun sellers - is too predictable to have been unintended and unforeseen.)

After all, the community organizer is a particularly malevolent, arrogant, and manipulative POS.

Craigslist prices will increase accordingly.

I am a week late and several dollars short. I just started looking for magazines. WOW! Magpul magazines were $12.50 last week (free shipping) are going for $50 this week and they are out of stock. I have mags, but I should have bought a dozen more the day of the shooting and then sold them on the uptick.

On the flip side I got a very nice AR-15 a week and a half ago that has all Vltor parts, except for a Krieger barrel.

About a week ago, before the Newtown atrocity, I visited my local WalMart here in Maine.

I walked past the sporting goods, and then went over to the firearms display. I eyed over a Mossberg shotgun, and then admired an AR-15 in another display cabinet. It had a 30-round magazine, and the price was $747.00.

I’m going there tomorrow (for groceries, prescription drugs), and I’ll check out the guns and ammo. I’m sure the semi-automatic rifles have been purchased by other shoppers since my last visit.

If Obama were smart and really wanted to improve the economy, he’d have a presser tomorrow stating that he’s been going over highway fatality statistics and thinks it’s time to ban American made cars, especially those particularly nasty electric ones.

C/L zots them when they see a firearm listing but people get inventive and title something like "S&W 2nd Amendment Tool 9mm Drill Bit".

Good question, the shelves were starkly bare of all calibers, not just the ones I was interested in.
Will probably go back Saturday with wife to buy some gift cards, will be interesting to see if they have restocked.
Sad thing where I live, it's Wally-World or drive 30 miles to the next town with a few gun shops and Academy Sporting Goods.

Its Dems that are causing this shortage(demand increase) by inducing a panic.
