Have you noticed it too? During my recent visits to local shops it seemed like guns weren't staying in the display cases as long, and ammo on the shelves seemed a little thinner. Discussions with shop owners and sales people only confirmed what I was already thinking. They say business is booming.
The election is eight months away and there is not any real push for more gun control, but sales of guns and everything related are on the rise. As we get closer to November buying will only increase. Remember the panic that started with the 2008 election? There will be another, as bad or possibly worse. And it was bad. I remember some guns and ammunition selling for outrageous sums. For a while certain calibers, guns or parts weren't available at any price.
Is there some special firearm you're looking for? Or maybe a particular caliber you don't have enough of? Buy it now. Buy it now before prices go up. Buy it now while it's still relatively easy to get.
I certainly don't want to add to this but it is coming whether we talk about it or not. Ignoring it will not stop it from happening.
If there is something you want or need don't wait. At the very least you will assure you're getting it cheaper just by beating inflation. Buy now if you possibly can. It might make the difference between having what you want at a good price, or maybe having it at all.
