    Would be nice to have an actual president, not just a politician. All they do is blab. They get paid to blab!

    I agree, but I think we'd have better odds of seeing Hillary address the nation on live television and accept full responsibility for her failures at Benghazi and commit honorable seppuku with an apology to the families of the men she failed to protect.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    The threat of bans is always looming overhead. The gun-control movement never has been nor will it ever be about public safety though that is a guise they run with, rather it is about disarmament.

    I was only 14 when Clinton's AWB went into effect. In '04 when it went away I devoted whole pay checks to OEM standard capacity mags. My philosophy has always been buy cheap and stack deep as money permits.

    Precisely. Guns are one of those unique items that will always have value. If they are banned we will be able to use them as an investment and sell for a profit; or we will be able to use them. Either way you can't go wrong buying low.
    Put the whole wood on it!

    Amen there.
    Was able to make a few mortgage payments emptying out my parts boxes, not kidding.
    Which REALLY tempts me to go ahead and stock upon said parts now while the getting is good again.
    However sound this logic has proven to be - the wife is trying to convince me we can't afford to tie up that kinda money in stripped lowers uppers lpk's etc.
    But what kind of investment tool yields a return of close to 100% in less than 2 years with a zero chance of original investment losing value? Any market player would drool over these numbers.
    Lessons learned in the past...
    Only thing giving me pause is that by now one would think anyone needing anything has gotten theirs - the next one won't be as extreme in inventories going empty.

    Exclamation

    I saw the writing on the wall during the run-up to the Presidential election, and began stockpiling that summer...

    You should start stocking up pretty soon if you have not already done so.

    (...most here are paying attention and are doing that...right?)

    Right now...while things are sane and shelves are full...if you need spare mags or want a second AR...you better plan on grabbing it long before the 2016 election cycle kicks into gear. Chances are pretty good that the media and left will give Hillary a cake walk right into the Oval Office (you REALLY don't think the RNC will "allow" Ted Cruz or Rand Paul to run...do you?).

    So plan for it now. I am planning on buying my second Colt 6920...the old "two is one" mentality but also because prices are sane and the guns are available.

    Do it now and don't be one of the whiners in November 2016 when ARs go to 2500 a pop and there are no P-mags to be found!

    ...you have been warned.

    Could be tomorrow. And no I would guess Im not "ready" as I haven't cleaned out my local stores....and I don't lose sleep at night. Nor do I have any plans to "stock up".
