    Closer to the action than you are.

    Right now, the things that are going to get attacked legislatively are the guns and the magazines. If you want an investment, get the magazines. The value will go up when they make them illegal to produce, but they will be easy to sell.

    What exactly is the difference between an 'assault rifle' and a semi-auto hunting rifle? I shot my brother-in-law's AR-15 at Thanksgiving and didnt feel like it was really any different from a semi auto rifle, other than having a pistol grip, having a shorter barrel and being more menacing looking.....

    Im far from a gun-lover (my wife insists on having one in our house, but I really think its dumb/pointless to have one) but it seems like this big hubbub on ARs seems based on the fact that they just look mean looking.....

    My dad has a 250 acre ranch two hours SW of Kerrville, TX about 60 miles from the Mexican border. "Mules" (illegals with backpacks loaded with cocaine or marijuana) go through his ranch all the time. He carries an AR-15 on a gun rack on his Kabota ATV anytime he cruises around his ranch. They are usually hiding out. Sometimes 10-15 at a time.

    If he had to call any type of law enforcement for help it would take them 45 minutes to an hour to get to him. And people make ignorant statments such as "There is absolutely no reason for anyone to have this type of weapon." Oh, and he is also overrun with Wild hogs. There is no better weapon for that either. They come in packs and hit his deer feeders. They are very destructive with their rooting around for grubs. You need an accurate weapon that fires rapidly and holds a lot of bullets.

    There are two valid arguments right there. Not to mention that they are absolutely a blast to fire.

    Well that sounds like three valid reasons to me...

    A guy at my work talked to 3 different dealers today who said they were sold out. A 4th told him that the dealers he knows are actually pulling their stock off the shelves to hold on to them & see what happens with legislation. He told me that anyone who insists on buying one today pays a min $1k premium. They are all betting that prices are going way up.

    I've always been a shotgun/hand gun owner, but have never owned rifles except for a couple of .22's that I used for target practice. I've been thinking about getting an AR for a while now, so decided to see what was available today. Needless to say, they were literally flying off the shelves today at one of the biggest dealers in Houston. I kind of got caught up in the frenzy and ended up buying a Bushmaster XM15 and two Colt M4A1's. Not sure I need all 3of them, but decided that I'd rather go ahead and buy them now than wish I'd done so later.

    On side note...cant seem to find any 30 rd magazines anywhere. Has anyone ever had any experience with the polymer magazines? Are they any good, or do I need to wait until I find ss?

    At this point, get whatever you can find. The PMAGS from Magpul are hard to beat, imo.

    even if you could, they'd probably be $40-60 for a $14 mag.

    Magpul pmags are as good as the metal with green follower. Good luck finding any of them though.

    I found a store the other day http://www.savagetradingusa.com/ Its in Yukon. I heard they had .223 ammo so I stopped by. They were selling 1000 rounds PMC for $650. Not a terrible price considering whats going on right now. Ive never heard of them, but I guess they've been around for a while. They were pretty nice guys, Id probably go back. They still had a bunch of AR's too

    Ammo isn't the problem. It is the guns and mags that they are going to go after legislatively right now. Unless you need ammo, you should wait until prices come back down.

    Off topic, but if you're into PM's Silver, and Gold are a little bearish right now.
