Guys,

My brother's LGS was crowded with people buying ammo and firearms.

Several online gun sellers ran out of stock while I was just looking at items.

Went to Cabelas today because the inlaws were in town and they like to look at the stuffed animals for some reason.

It was a clusterfuck of biblical proportions.

Lots of retarded hillbillies buying anything and everything.

Whiffed on a cherry Rolling block in 7mm Mauser because I didn't want the deal with the B.O. logjam at the counter.

I'm not going to worry until SG and PSA are out of everything.
Link Posted: 2/14/2016 8:30:48 PM EDT
It took me 25 minutes yesterday at Cabelas just to get help so I could see if they had something in inventory.


I refuse to contribute to this crap, bunch of tards. I do have a build going on currently that I will finish, but I guess it's time to take it easy.

I didn't panic buy, but I finally clicked order on 1000 rds 7.62x39, 1000rds 5.56, and spare parts for ARs.

Hasn't been too bad where I am

No reason to panic yet, unless you're in a anti state or city.  I doubt the Kenyan will do anything meaningful via executive order, fearing it will hurt the D nominee and I don't see anything making it through Congress in an election year.

Maybe some people are spending some tax return monies.

yep tax season is generally quite busy in the gun industry. Even more so than the holidays it seems.
Link Posted: 2/14/2016 8:34:44 PM EDT
good, good..... I've got some things to sell. Lets see if I cant put my 2nd child through college this go around.
Link Posted: 2/14/2016 8:35:30 PM EDT
The local gun shops  and gun shows have been doing an incredible amount of business for months now yet there is plentyof inventory remaining and prices haven't gone up.
Link Posted: 2/14/2016 8:36:36 PM EDT
I work on commission in a gun shop so I'm kinda hoping we do hit another panic
Link Posted: 2/14/2016 8:36:46 PM EDT
I'm not panicked but I need to click buy on some carts apparently before shiznit runs out.
Link Posted: 2/14/2016 8:36:52 PM EDT
What's the panic over this time?

Looks that way.  Of course any excuse to buy a new gun works for me.

Pfft, I owe money EVERY single year.  As I told my wife, I would rather owe money than give an interest free loan to the government!

Lets see, holiday weekend, valentines day, and tax return season.

Link Posted: 2/14/2016 8:39:33 PM EDT
I went to Walmart and they were stocked up on 9mm, 45, 40, 223, 7.62X39, 308 and even 22.



It was more stocked than usual.




The neckbeards in my hood didn't get the email that it's time to panic.

The larger LGS around here has been busy every time I've been in the last year. Doesn't mean there is a panic. They have a great selection, albeit at laughably high prices.

They also had some sort of sale this weekend. I ran in Friday morning 20 minutes after opening to grab something, and the gun section had at least 150 people waiting for their number to be called.

Yes.

However, some folks are thinking about what Scalia's passing will do to the 2nd Amendment.

I understand that, but it will take awhile for any change.  His successor hasn't even been named, much less confirmed.  I'll start panicking when and if Dems retake the House and Senate.
Link Posted: 2/14/2016 8:51:26 PM EDT
Panic buying will continue to, at the very least, January 20, 2017.

THAT is assuming the Hildog or Ol Bern don't win.



Link Posted: 2/14/2016 8:52:49 PM EDT
I'm going to add to the Panic next month. Going to get my 9mm reloading bullets ordered for the coming year.
Link Posted: 2/14/2016 8:54:14 PM EDT
Went to Bass Pro today while Sams club was putting some new tires on the car and the pistol cases were about half full. I did pick up some .22 LR - CCI Mini Mags - bout 9 bucks per 100 rounds.  Glad to add a little bit to the stock pile.
Link Posted: 2/14/2016 8:54:41 PM EDT
Like I said before, I can't keep up with the weekly panics.

What are we freaking out about now?
Link Posted: 2/14/2016 8:55:10 PM EDT
Meh, I'm ok with it. I've got enough, and the more people stocking up on guns and ammo the better
Link Posted: 2/14/2016 8:55:38 PM EDT
It has more to do with tax season than panic buying.

Lots of threads on panic get started on ARFCOM in hopes of neckbearing previous stashes of over price stuff guys bought.
Link Posted: 2/14/2016 8:56:24 PM EDT
There is a spike in purchasing every time there is a scare. It's usually people trying to beat the panic buyers to the punch before prices go up. Once online distributors catch on and raise prices, it stops and it returns to normal.

I know because I always do it.

The SC justice who wrote the majority opinion in DC v Heller died, and there is a credible threat that Obama will try and install an anti-gun justice to overturn it.

If they do I suspect everything will be out (including PVC pipe at Home Depot) and the companies that sell 80% lowers will be cranking them out 24/7.

Nobody has a clue here, just speculating, maybe Scalia passing away, maybe V-day, tax returns, aliens, maybe the hot ass Cabela's chick with the huge mams was working behind the counter again.

Yet PSA still has 13 flavors of rifle kits in stock.....

Well, I bought another 1K rnd. case of ''Wolf Gold'' from SGAmmo for $299 + shipping----- told myself I need to buy NOW.. Stack it on the others......I just love a good panic.

I could take a gun buying panic every month. The more guns out in the general public the safer I feel.

Or if they are like my wife, I got an alert that Justice Scalia had died, I told her and she replied "who?"




Most of the low information voters don't have a clue what the problem is.
