Just curious.

I've spent a couple of hours a day at a buddy's gunshop the last three days (We're going in on a "Mass Quantity' buy of AR' parts and are trying to figure out what we're gonna get) and in the three days I've been in there I think 1 guy out of the 60 or 70 people I've seen HASN'T been there to buy an AR or to up-grade a post-ban gun.

My buddy's shop is pretty small and in the past (Like LAST week) I could hang out for a couple of hours and maybe nobody'd come in or someone would come and ask about rings for a scope or something non AR'. NOW, it's a steady stream and they're "ALL" wanting AR's.

What's even more encouraging is that over half of these guys don't own AR's and are just now wanting one because of all the publicity of the sunset (Thanks Diane and Chuck). I know it's not gonna last but it's been fun to watch this week and was just wonderin' if the rest of you are seeing the same things in your neck of the woods?

Went to Cheaper than Dirt! monday and man did they get cleaned out. I arrived about 1400 and spoke with one of the guys that worked there, he said they got hit early in the morning and most of the good stuff was gone. I did pick up my high cap glock mags though.

At a gunstore that I go to they had a shitload of LEO Colt AR15A3 Carbines. I was there three times that day and a friend of mine was there when they were about to close. When I was first there the rack was LINED with them plus 9mm AR`s and GB Mini 14`s.

When my friend went the rack was damn near empty!

Good thing I secured mine on my third trip!

Nope, everyone that wanted an AR could always get and AR.

I've seen at least 10 people who never had one talk to me about mine and show intrest in buying one. The people who already did have them (myself included) are getting more. As the saying goes "Buy Both!"

Well iran out and bought the military configuration AR-15 i wanted since the ban took effect!

And a lot more people are saying out loud that they owned one all along, that were hush, hush about it before like they should have been ashamed to admit it!

Stopped by a local shop yesterday to ask about stripped lowers. Response I got was a snooty,

"We don't care that sort of thing and no, we won't order it either".

Response for Dick's Gun Shop: Well, I don't care for peckerheads with attitudes like yours, pal, so we're even.
No, wait a minute... I won't be spending my money in your store because of your arrogance, so you lose, asshole.
