    Lokks like prices are staring to come down. Afriend of mine bought a new Busmaster with a red dot scope and colapsable stock for $799 Just outside Milwaukee at a farm store.

    And I hope all the people who bought bunches of them with intentions of gouging others choke on 'em. A great deal of the gouging was shooters gouging fellow shooters.

    Today in Florida I saw new Sig R516 Patrol rifles for 16-something at a gunshop. I'm not a big black gun person so I don't know if that's a great deal but I know it's down hundreds from what I saw a few months ago.

    At a gun show in Cape Coral I saw .22 bricks (525) marked $120. What a joke.

    In 6 months all of the guys that didnt have the money or overpaid for an AR will be looking to get rid of them. They will realize that that one mag they ran through it was cool but that $1000 would be alot better, even if they paid $1500 for it. Dont worry there will be a flood of AR's very soon.

    Drop the cartons and run like he!!. Remember the CP dolls? Also be careful unlatching the doors and watchout for the stampede. Supply and demand. Saturation levels.

    Our local Walmart has been getting them in stock and selling them for wholesale prices throughout the whole panic.
