I think it's mainly due to the increase in demand, but wouldn't be surprised if some manufacturers have reduced production due to COVID.

I don't doubt there is a higher demand due to things going on. But wow! I'll just keep casually searching and see what comes my way.

Ammo, if you can find it, is at least triple the price it was six months ago.

Gun sales have skyrocketed because of what's going on right now with the riots, politics, etc. Depending on how bad you want a gun, look at www.gunbroker.com It's basically an eBay for guns, ammo, and accessories. You will more than likely pay over retail to get one right now. As Boost Creep mentioned, ammo has tripled in price but sometimes you can find good deals.

I just got the last 50 round box of 9mm my local gun store had for $13.95.


I'm a pretty happy camper.

I'm not "needing" anything, according to the wife. I have a couple AR's, 9mm, and assortment of hunting rifles/shotguns.... but I was thinking "one more, and I'm done"

You can never just have "one" more. Guns are like car parts, you can never have enough.

I'd wait until 2021 if necessary, the market should stabilize somewhat be then, might even be a glut of lightly used items.

When karma is good to you!!!


At then end of last week, I just happen to come across a site that had the handgun I was looking for. But was it really "in stock", and if so, what was the price of it?

It was actually in stock, as they had only had it less than a week, and it was MSRP. So I paid for it right then. I went there on Sunday to check everything out and talk with them. All of their prices were pretty good, not stupid priced and lots of variety of ammo in stock.

I picked up a Sig Sauer P320 X5 Legion. It was out of state, so I am hoping to get it later this week. My wife has a H&K VP9 Sub compact she likes but while she was there, picked up a Sig P356. Great day, and had ammo in stock for the big labor day sales, so I also got 9 boxes of .300 blackout and a whole bunch of 9mm for some fun.

My friend picked up a little Savage Cricket .22 rifle for his little boy. He has been shooting his .22 and was going to be a little birthday gift for him.
