    So Will We See An Election Panic, or Not??

    I had not had time lately to check my favorite (go-to) websites for what is available. I have been hearing folks speculating on shortages and some
    things were getting in short supply and so on. I took a little time last night and looked around. I found most everything I would need in guns,
    ammo, parts, etc, is still in supply and prices were the same. The only change is the cheaper AR receivers like Anderson seemed to be sold out.
    I suspect even those will reappear as it has happened before.

    I will admit I am not too much worried about shortages, etc, due to the election, etc, as I am well stocked and really don't need anything.
    I suspect many others are in the same boat? Still, if I absolutely needed something I would likely do it now and not chance a repeat of
    what we have seen in the past. I did order a mid length upper from PSA yesterday to finish a AR project.

    What is your thoughts on this? Any shortages in your areas?

    No shortages around here. Lots of guns, ammo, and parts as always. In fact, there might be more stuff than usual.

    I have been watching the vendor ads and even buying a few items.
    It appears that they are selling off enough to pay for the cost of the inventory and at just above cost to make some profit.
    If the panic starts that will be where they will make their money.
    That way they will not lose money.

    I have a few extra items that if the price get high enough, I will sell them.

    I've got my 50rnds. of 22lr stashed well, so I don't foresee the need for anything more.

    There's a whole lot more gun people than there used to be and they'll be looking to stock up if things turn unfavorable

    I think that if Clinton wins, it will be a panic again - probably rightfully. With her almost zero knowledge around gun control and comments around "gunshow loophole", "internet loophole" she did not only make me puke, but also scared of what might happen if she really gets an opportunity to put the left wing wisdom into laws.

    Myself, I got all I need for the next few years including a few lowers, just in case... at the last gunshow and in some local stores, I could buy everything I wanted (except for reasonably priced .22lr).

    Well the anti-gun left have been the greatest gun salesmen (people) ever - setting new sales records every year they are in power. If Hillary gets in - no doubt the trend will continue.

    You are right. The folks that have just gotten into the game within the last few years are the ones that are buying up everything in site around here, regardless of price. It won't be long and it will be the seller's market that we have seen in the past.
