Once I get this AR project done I'm going to run on some guns.
I might (gasp) get rid of a couple too.

Nobody has Glock mags in stock. If anyone knows of a place that does, let me know, I want to pick up a couple more gen 4 9mm 17 rounders.

I was in Gander Mountain yesterday, and there was a line in the gun section of people looking to make purchases...

I bought the last Glock 19 mag they had in stock.  Yeah, I've got several, but with the likelihood of a cap limit being reimposed, no sense not having one more.

Went to the Waukesha gun show on Saturday. It was the busiest I've ever seen. Even had some protesters out in the rain.

It'll be hard to tell the difference between the Obama II panic and the latest calls for an AWB/Mag Cap/All Guns bans emanating from DC panic.

While I've already had plans to buy ammo, mags, and guns, I think I will up my purchase amount and frequency.

At the Walmart I work at the day of the shooting we sold 2 AR variants.  The day after the shooting 5 AR variants.  and 3 shotguns.  It is no doubt a run related to the shooting.  We have probably 2 or 3 left.  Walmart is finally getting the sales on the ARs.  They sat gathering dust all year until this week.

My LGS was busy when I stopped in today. I overheard one sales guy saying the NICS wait was over one hour. And that was an improvement from this morning.

My distributors were swamped today. I saw on Saturday that they had about 60,000 pMags with and without windows, so I started putting them on my site. By the time I was finished, I got two orders for two each (yippee) before they were sold out.

I was talking to the owner of a custom shop who said he stopped counting after logging 100+ calls, mostly generic gun availability inquiries.

I just ordered some AR10 and M1A mags from Brownells, the AR15 mags were looking a little thin. I didn't check AR lower availability.

I picked up my new hi power today and NICS took about 35min. It was like a gunshow day. My FFL mentioned it had been crazy all weekend.

Perhaps I need to pick up a AR-10 lower for a future project.

While it didn't resemble the bank run scene in It's a Wonderful Life, Academy Sports was doing a brisk business in guns.  Mostly EBR's and autopistols.  No joy finding Glockazines online.

Maybe we can organize a 5K run to support local gun shops.   grin

I have seen a "run" on AR's and AK's ever since the election.  Everyone who hadn't already gotten an AR15 or something similar was out buying them.  The WalMart near me is stocking AR's and selling them.  The last show I went to about 2 weeks ago, there were only 3 vendors selling stripped lowers and all were low on stock.  It looked like they were selling them.  The good news is I haven't seen prices going up like 4 years ago.

I haven't looked around lately so I don't know what is happening since the recent incident in the news.
