    It will happen if there is no ban passed...who knows when that will be resolved.

    I believe that will be the case. Their main objective right now is the universal background check.

    I got an email about an order I placed right before Christmas about some mags I ordered being shipped . . .

    I had actually forgotten that I'd even placed the order.

    Considering you can get .223/5.56 for cheaper than $1/round, yes, that's a bad price. Hell, I cringed when the wife bought some for .85¢/round.

    I wanted to buy some since I actually saw some on a shelf that were for sale. I knew they weren't even close to the best deal, but I'm not losing any sleep over it at the moment.

    Especially since I had just bought some last month at $6.99/box.

That price is not great, as you could get them for half or a third of that prior to the hysteria. Then again, if you are able to get it for that, and then get the other parts for decent prices later, you really only over paid by a couple of hundred.

    How hard is it to find the uppers, and I suppose that one is stripped so no trigger, hand grip, stock etc.? What about those?

    It's like ammo, right now. They're all hard to come by, but the lowers are the only thing in danger of being made illegal.

    Sorry Bush. Late response.
    Got some from Cabela's. Ammoman has been receiving as well but they dont hold their price like Cabela's will.

    Walmart has some now too. 3 box limit but again no price hike.

    Porter's Army/Navy in Irving, TX (http://www.portersarmynavy.com/ -- they don't sell anything online) has 5.56 ammo available. They are only allowing two boxes per customer, but at $11 per box its some of the cheaper ammo I have seen lately.

    Is that legal out there? OMG it now has TWO pistol grips, so it's TWICE as deadly, according to the anti-assault weapon logic.

    **** me, that is one ****ing scary looking "assault rifle". A collapsible stock, pistol grip, forward grip, hand guard and flash hider which is all designed to allow that evil **** to be shot from the hip according that Saint, Sen. Feinstein. I'm surprised that you were able to take a picture of that evil **** before it picked up a high capacity "clip" and ran out to the nearest school and unleashed it's evilness.

    If and hopefully when whatever proposed legislation gets either voted down, or watered down to the point where nothing is actually banned, then demand will suddenly drop off. That will be the time to buy, as prices should go way down. At least I keep telling myself this will happen, haha.

    I think it's gonna be like gasoline, we got used to paying $3.50 a gallon, so now anything in the $2's seems cheap. I bought .223 6 months ago for about $.34 a round, now it's $.70 if you can find it. When things settle down I wouldn't be surprised if the new cheap is $.50 a round.

    I don't know, oil and gas production has a lot of other factors that go into it. I am just thinking that if demand were suddenly to drop in a big way, which would probably happen as soon as the "panic buyers" didn't feel as worried, then the market would probably get flooded with product, which should drive prices down.

    IMO, I don't think demand will drop for a long, long while. This has been an eye opener for a lot of people and there are going to be people hoarding massive amounts for a while. People that used to just keep a couple hundred rounds on hand, are now going to be keeping a couple thousand instead.

    My guess is, they are only getting the match grade stuff right now, and that is why it "seems" more expensive.

    Let me know when you see that in the store. The monarch brass was about $7.99 a box a few months ago.

    I am counting on the average American attention span to kick in.
