Debated starting this thread as I am not sure its in good taste being the one year anniversary of SH today, but fuck it.

The Monday after SH I bought an "M4 carbine" marked 6920, and a Colt Socom 2…both at normal prices. Ended up having to sell a guitar and other music equipment to do so though.

bought an le 6920 the month before.

unloaded a lot of stuff the month after.

I bought my Microtech STG back in January with a bunch of accessories at a great price. I didn't panic buy it because of all the ban talk though. I had been planning on buying it anyway, and January was just the first time I had the money to do it. If I had had the money before everything happened, I still would have made the purchase.

I also picked up a Sig Sauer P226 MK25 a couple months ago. Again, not a panic buy, something else that I would have bought regardless.

All I bought was a few threaded barrels for various guns I owned. I had ordered the suppressors about a week before Sandy Hook, and as soon as I saw the death toll I was on the phone ordering the barrels I needed.

The day after Sandy Hook I bought a Colt 6920 for $1049 at Wal Mart. During the height of the panic, I traded it for a 4 digit serial number SP-1 rifle in 98% condition. The Monday after, I bought 200 30 round Pmags. I still have all of them except for a couple I gave to friends.

Not a damn thing.

Once a good panic buy starts I shut down all purchasing.
I have no desire to buy a panic build from some manufacturer who sped up the assembly line any way they could.

People can call it a panic buy now, but it could well have been a sweeping Federal ban, and that 6920 would be "Gold" to you as a gun owner now, because you'd never be able to buy another.

The next time it might be.

It pretty much was the end for NY and CT.

The above was purchased barely a month before. I admit bought a 10 pack of PMAGS for $100ish post Sandy. I haven't purchased shit since. Only dummies buy high. Unfortunately my money is tied up in other investments at the moment. There are a ton of good deals popping up lately.

Built a few AR's, 16", 18", Pistol, and 7.62x39, and then unloaded a few WASR's for quite a profit.

Two Christmas deal boxes from DSG for 30rd black PMAGs and 5 more of the BDM made Lage M-11/22 conversion mags.

Got them for normal prices and ordered them in December 2012 before it got really crazy.

I sold stuff, didn't buy anything.

Initially a bunch of 30 round magazines.

Springfield Armory M1A, loaded edition.

Bought it 3 months after SH, not as a panic buy, but something I have always wanted. Paid pre-panic level prices too.
Link Posted: 12/14/2013 2:27:58 AM EST
I bought some M&P and CZ75 mags for pre panic prices the day or so after the shooting. I had been thinking about buying them anyway and figured they would become scarce/expensive. I was right.

SIG SP2022 for $359 and two stripped lowers.

Nothing. Not one fucking thing. Let the suckers blown their money, I'll hold on to mine until prices normalize.

one week later I bought a Coast to Coast branded shotgun for $125.00. It's a Mossberg 500, branded for Coast to Coast stores.

Why would you buy anything in those market conditions?

It was a seller's market.

Sent in a form 1 for an SBR about a week prior, so I got it back in six months. Not so much anymore.
Link Posted: 12/14/2013 3:50:10 AM EST
Did not panic buy anything. I was comfortable enough until the craze died down.

Sucks using your "stash" though

It took a day or two for the panic to set in!

When I saw how the ladies in my office were talking on the day it happened, I drove to 3 local Wal Marts and cleaned them out in terms of 22lr and 9mm.

I was the only one there, and the clerk's even asked.... (I told them I was spending Christmas bonus dollars). Yes. I started the ammo panic.

3 lowers and 20 mags that Sunday night for pre panic prices

The panic didn't really set in untill Monday afternoon/ Tuesday.

Someone had posted areo lowers at $99 I was going to order a couple in the am but I refreshed the page and the Invantory had dropped by 300. I knew it was doom then.
Link Posted: 12/14/2013 4:15:20 AM EST
Some ammo, but not much.. I have a good stash and work part time in a gun shop, so I buy what I need for target shooting and such.. but I am loaded up on Defensive ammo.

Didn't need mags, or rifles or such.. Been stocking those for years.. but I did buy an Uzi. Friend of mine brought it into the shop to put on consignment.. We made a deal for some extra junk silver I had, and about 1200 bucks in silver later, it was mine :) I had just picked up the silver a few months ago and have more than enough so this was sort of "extra" that I was saving for a rainy day.

Been really happy with it.. an IMI Mod A in very good shape, shoots anything I run through it too. Needless to say I stocked up pretty heavily on mags for it.

Other then that, not much.

Lol

I didn't vist my LgS untill the next weekend it was 3 deep at the gun counter down to shotguns and 1911s

I had build project underway any how. I was patient & waited for things to simmer down a bit. I did order a nickel boron bolt & carrier from RG & waited about 12 weeks so I could complete a 6x45 build. It was most definitely worth waiting as that rifle is proving to be extremely accurate.

An order I placed with Red X took nearly 6 month but at the price the offer, again worth the wait.

I did more selling in the past year than buying. I turned the quantity of guns & uppers into cash and upgraded to quality. One guy who was particularly unrelenting about an Evolution upper I had that I did not want to sell PAID dearly to get it but at least the phone calls stopped.
