    then when nothing comes about this anti0gun legislation , people will be left with trying to dump off all of these pistols they bought...just like the semi-auto mil. style rifles after O got elected....I see another run on handgun ammo, especially 9mm and 45, and mags...good thing I dumped those calibers. They became safe queens after the '08 election.

    If there was a fourth-quarter 2010 surge in Smith & Wesson sales, it might have been partially triggered by the 15% first-quarter 2011 price increase that S&W warned its distributors about in October. I'll admit to buying a few like-new pre-lock S&Ws during that period. When new gun prices rise, used gun prices usually follow suit. Additionally, when the current crop of nice no-lock S&Ws is gone, there probably will never be any more.
