Well i got to chuckle at all this. If you are waiting to buy a firearm now your likely the kind of person that voted for all our BS gun laws.
I purchased some ammo on slae at Bi mart a couple of weeks ago. they had bulk 22lr, 38spl, 9mm, 556 on sale for VERY reasonable prices. Think I paid $35 for 1k 22lr rounds. I learned my lesson and will never be short on ammo again. hopefully all the Noobs will have an epiphany... Perhaps not because they were all surprised their Teslas were taxed heavy...
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

Hey now, I'm waiting on a rifle to get here so I can wait a ridiculous amount of time for it to get released to me. I took me a couple tries to find a shop that would take an inbound transfer right now. :bash:

Now if I can just find a good source for ammo. Do you think Walmart will have any 22x47 Lapua ammo in stock? :chuckle:

I was supposed to get my encore on Wednesday, before the shop closed as nonessential. They ordered the wrong part. Bah!  I did score a pre-panic priced lower that I think I am going to turn into a 9mm PCC.

I feel for a gun nut, but if you look at some of the FB gun groups several of the Gun shops have had to educate those ignorant how thier votes worked.  Wades Gun Shop sold over 170 shotguns in 72 hours.  You cant find buckshot anywhere. WTF are you gonna do with bird shot? I think some level of disdain is appropriate considering how all high and mighty many of these folks have been. Their level of psychological comfort is none of my concern. Lets hope they learn the lesson I did. Keep the guns and stack up the ammo.

You can order a gun from me. When it arrives you can fill out your paperwork and get your transfer started or completed depending on the item.

There is a lot of speculation on different firearm blogs that the used firearm market is going to be pretty robust in the next 6-12 months.  Alot of buyers remorse might be creeping in perhaps?

I hope they take action and introduce a mandatory buyback program...












Just wanted to see Special T’s reaction

I just picked up a new to me rifle yesterday horse trading, 338 rum and 200 rounds. I think if your looking to get guns or ammo now your going to get the short end of the stick.

Nice!

Yeah, I figured as much. Just curious of others’ experiences so far.

I heard that the 1st question after needing a 10 day waiting period for pistols and semi autos was... what can i leave with TODAY!

The only gun I would be looking for in the potential great deals is a SBE 3 in Left hand... Kind of shooting for the moon on that, but you never know!

What's the current situation with background checks?

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

I ran one on Wednesday, and it was about 10 minutes. (I never have gotten a hold or delay.)

Seems like online checks go a LOT faster, especially during off hours
