$50 PMAGs that's cheap, CTD had them priced at $99.99 LOL . . . I think they are still sitting on a warehouse full of mags that no one bought.

One can only hope that they are. I would say they hurt us more than ever helped.
I watched people try to hock mags at $50+ for months after that, some even trying to get as much as $200. Sadly the LGS who usually had the highest prices actually ended up being the place with the best prices on mags and 5.56 which was the only reason i was able to shoot. I had plenty, though since prices have dropped I've added a number of mags to my inventory. That said, I remember having people trying to buy my ARs and mags at the range when I went shooting, got some crazy offers and some trying to "help me" get rid of those evil rifles before the gov starting kicking in doors and confiscating. Buying what I can when I have the money and sliding deals to those I know who can use the deals the best I can.

I still can't 9mm for the price and quantity that I want, and I'm not being unreasonable here.

You have checked out LAX reloads? I'm loving that stuff.

As long as that ammo can sit at $497 and nobody's buying, the better things will eventually get...
We should have a beer sometime AUG....This is the state of the nation because the idiots grossly outnumber those who take time to actually understand the issues at hand. This is also why we have a nation who voted for the novelty of "having helped elect the first black President" regardless of his qualifications (or complete lack of qualifications) or his various anti American agendas.
I still can't find certain bullets (Barnes 300BLK 110gr black tip and Barnes 130gr TTSX). You can find them loaded for $1.65, but I need to do load development instead of wasting money. So the shortage is still in effect.
Reminds me of an old song- went something like "if I was the president/ I'd be elected on Friday/assassinated on Saturday/buried onSunday".
I like my guns like I like my women- smokin'!

I'm set for the future. Plenty of ammo, magazines, spare parts, food, fuel, and TP. That's right, 5 year supply of TP. This is still The United States of America, and I will NOT be wiping my ass with newspapers, pine cones, leaves, or snowballs, like I'm some third world refugee. My God we're still a civilized nation and don't you guys forget it!
It better be single ply or that's just outright decadence! Now excuse me while I try to find some solar panels for my Phillips Soniccare.

Knock on wood (hits head with knuckles), we should remain pretty normal on everything until the middle of 2015 when the Presidential Election cycle starts. This is assuming that Obama does not use any executive orders for ANYTHING firearms related.
Like always though, we are one good mass shooting away from full on crazy. So if you only have ten 30rd mags or 1,000rds of 5.56 or ONE AR15, you might want to buy now while prices are extremely low. Then, if something bad happens, you wont have that sinking feeling that you are going to have to wait 12 months for things to normalize again.
Right! I bet that guy curses every time he opens his safe. Same goes for the guy who bought my spare BCM BCG for $510.
I think A1fab is on to something.
Although I started stoking up back in 2008 when it looked as if Obama was going to win...by now..you have had PLENTY of warnings. If you are not stocked up or at least filling in a few blanks in your supplies....you deserve to pay 30 dollars a box for 9mm and 3 grand for an AR in the next shortage.
Stocking up SHOULD be an ongoing process if you ask me. Something you are constantly in the process of doing. Looking for holes in your collection and ammo shelves and slowly adding to your stash. It becomes a part of your routine like grocery shopping or buying new clothes now and then.
Hopefully with things like the internet (which we didn't really have before the Clinton Ban of 1994) we might be able to prevent that from happening, but we came damn close in 2004 and if a Republican majority Congress can pass it as an amendment to a pro gun bill then anything can happen.
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.
