Just wait a few months, if that long. Far too many buyers are doing so without thinking. Christmas is coming, Wives and or SOs are not going to be happy. Bills are going to need to be paid every month. I see more lay offs cut backs and harder times before the tide turns. A lot of guns and gun stuff is going to be listed in the various forum's equipment exchanges and on the auction sites at great prices once the bills start showing up and reality sets in.
In regards to stupid<(IMHO) high prices, I say good for the manufactures distributors and re-sellers, many have been going through meager if not outright rough times in years past. It is about time for them to make some hay while the sun shines so to speak. However they won't be getting my hard earned dollars again until the panicked public is through with their hoarding and wasteful spending that is driving the price up. Heck who knows, gun shows may actually have mostly guns for sale and even some good deals once again
Hell I didn't even think Senator Obama was going to win
, but I too clearly remember the last attack(aka AWB) on the 2nd amendment and my civil rights. Having decided long ago to get what I considered important and or vital, I will ride this one out and start buying "pre-owned" from induviduals.
