On CNBC this morning, mention was made of Sturm, Ruger and Company (RGR) stock hitting new highs. It is up about 60% in the last month during a month when the market has been tanking.
The discussion among the commentators turned to buying guns and buying canned goods e.g SPAM vs. Chef Boy-Ar-Dee. One of the commentators mentioned talking to several neighbors about buying a gun - people who had never purchased a gun before and live within an easy commute to New York City.
I thought that purchasing an AR-type rifle was almost impossible, perhaps due to a reimposition of the Assault Weapons (sic) Ban, but didn't know about the general demand for firearms in general.
Maybe Bushmaster and Remington can keep Cerberus in business long enough to support Chrysler.

Well I went to a gun show last weekend looking for .223 ammo. None to be found!! Saw a couple of AR guns, and I mean just a couple, also one guy had a couple of Mini 14 ranch rifles.

I went looking for .223 ammo and came home with a 45 auto.

221, I suppose Savage 99 is FOS too? Why would I want to argue, and who gives a rat's butt anyway. And by the way, I ordered parts from Ruger this week for a Blackhawk. Deva told me how far behind in sales and service they were. You want her number at the office?

5spd, thanks for the info. I'll pass it on to the guys at the club. The supply problem must be a regional thing. Maybe 221 is from the South West too, but no need on his part to get snippy.

Thanks again.

In the shop on Wed.,,,,Bushmaster Patrolman was $2,200,,,,sure if you want to pay $1,000 more than a gun is worth, you can "find" them,,,,9mm and .223 is ultra scarce here in N. Texas

I went to Gunbroker's site too. About 5 complete Rock River Rifles, the rest are stripped lowers or other accessories. I didn't bother checking the other listings. The point is, if you want a varmint grade, your gonna wait. I bought my RR Varmint off the shelf last August for $788.
