Who’s going? I’m back and forth on it. Kinda want to, but I’ll bet it’s a clinic on gouging prices.

I want to go but I know the prices will be high.  Not sure if I want to waste my time driving up there or not.

Well, I went and all I got was this box.

Everything I’m reading says the prices are just unholy! One table had 9mm reloads for 899.00. ARs are just outrageous. Ammo is a 1.00-1.25 a round. Wow

$80 per lb powder, $225 per 1k primers.
And it's selling.
I went in the lower level, south door.
The line to get in extended the entire length of the building and turned the corner.
It was like that at 8am and still half that at 1pm.
Parking was very difficult.
I've never been on Saturday before, maybe it's always like that?
There were very few masks in evidence, lots of free hand sterilizer.
Prices are very very high, but they're high all over.
I ALMOST paid $1600 for a used M1a, no box, no magazine, but it had a scope mount in place of the stripper clip guide I was unfamiliar with and it spooked me.
$1600 for a used M1a is retarded but there aren't any.
Plus the seller said he would have to ship it to my FFL , I couldn't 4473 it and walk.
Later I realized he probably wasn't a Oklahoma dealer and could only sell to people from his home state?
Is that how that works?
Anyway don't expect bargains on the staples.



And the "ars" are all railed generic railed kit guns or builds, not what I (emphasis on I) consider a AR.
Not a carry handle in sight, NO fixed FSB handguard carbines (6920/M4 style)
Without exception the few Colt rifles (20 inch h-bars,etc.) were over $2k.
A couple SP-1's for $3-6K.

Now I did get to see a Grail rifle, he had 2.
M1941 Johnsons. (Side note, they were the losers to the Garand and most in existence were en route to the Dutch East Indies when it fell to the Japs. The shipment was diverted  to the Marines cause well, that's how Marines get stuff)
One was documented as "on loan" to the Marines and was last reported on Guadalcanal in 1942, it was $16k
The other was boring by comparison and was $5500.

That's what Wanamachers is good for.

I found some Winchester m80 ball $23 a box. Cheaper than midway is advertising and they are out of stock. I also found some 308 pmag for $18, again cheaper than midway.




Had to edit for auto correct.

Got a great price on a Winchester 52 and an old Hopkins and Allen 922 that needs work.
