It appears we may have some panic buying on our hands. I’ve been to several gun stores in the past week and all are packed to the gills. At one they indicated they have sold over 50 of the AR platform in the past week. At many Wallyworlds the ammunition shelves are bare. C’mon folks, there is no reason to panic, large-scale stockpile purchases are just going to drive the prices up. Now I don’t personally feel 1,000 rounds is stockpiling, but when you clear off everything a store has you might be starting to meet that classification.
Now I purchased a complete lower prior to the election results, but since I haven’t purchased anything. I figured if the President was reelected the shelves would go bare so I pulled the trigger on an inexpensive lower. Now they are saying 10 days back order on the same one and probably lower. The great thing about this is the gun stores and manufacturers will make money, I just hope we don’t see people start to price gouge.
So everyone relax, take a deep breath and quit worrying. If some sort of weapons, magazine or ammunition ban is about to take place the media will have us all alerted in a nanosecond.
