After checking out the clothes stuff, we walked over to the guns/ammo and I was going to see if they had any 9mm or .22lr in and wifey started chatting with these girls in line, and they mentioned they just got some AR's in. Wife came over and told me, I walked over there and sure are shit a crowd was starting and they were unboxing the Bushmasters. There was a 1 per limit, but I didnt know that and after I was in line for the ATF background shit, I mentioned I wanted another one, so this other cat went to the back and gave us one, and said just have your wife fill out a background too, and your cool. SO we walked out with 2!
    FAWK......wish I had checked this earlier. I might go by and check tomorrow...but I am sure I am out of luck.

    Was gonna go and be up there at 9 when they open, but called first to see if they had any left. Apparently they opened at 8 for a doorbuster sale. They had 2 left, but they were being looked at....so I am sure they are gone now. They got those, they will get more. We're househunting right now anyway, so I can wait a little longer to get one.

    All guns shoot what they are aiming at, just that some have a hard time aiming at what they want to hit. ;-)

    Unless the sights are off, the barrel is messed up, etc.

    Walking through walmart last night, and saw a group of guys standing around in sporting goods. Thought it might be a good sign. Walked back and asked one of them what had came in, and the response i got was we don't know, we are just waiting to see if anything came in. Talked to the associate that works back there and she said they come in every night at about 7:30pm and wait around until 9pm to see if ammo or AR-15's come in. They buy as much as they can, and come back at 7am and do it again. It kinda pissed me off, because I knew the faces of a few off of a Facebook buy/sell/trade sight, and they were some of the ones charging 5x what they paid for 22lr, and double and triple on AR-15s.

    I've seen a dollar per round and higher here in DFW on the fb pages... People start fb arguments over the price gouging. It's crazy

    Price gouging? People should be happy they can get any ammo at all right now. It's called supply and demand, and right now demand is through the roof. Some people just can't fathom that.

    BTW, I'm not directing this at you, just making the statement.

    This is true . . . . but the price gouging is still aggravating.

    It isn't price gouging. It's low supply, with high demand. Econ 101.

    Talked to LaRue today. They are not going to be filling any new orders in 2013--they're that far backed up. I'm going to go ahead and order tonight or tomorrow anyway.

    FWIW, I don't see a ban passing.

    OK came across a Howa rifle package today in .308. Anyone have experience with these? Checked out YouTube, and it looks exactly like a Remington 700 TAC, but wondering if it shoots like one? Great value for the money but wondering if its a good piece?

    Always heard great things about Howa, never owned one, but the couple I have shot were very accurate.

    Pretty much a 45-70 that can be shot out of an AR type rifle. Slow and Heavy.

    The gun in the top of the picture IS NOT an assault weapon and the gun pictured below IS an assault weapon. [/THREAD]

    I've looked at that one as well as some others like the 450 Bushmaster. If I were to look at building a big caliber AR though, I think it would be the .458 SOCOM. From what I have read there are more hand loading options out there and more versatility out of that round thank the others.

    I would just use the AR-10 platform if I wanted a big caliber. During non panic times, it is only a couple hundred more to build an AR-10.

    because .308 isn't nearly as cool as .458 socom.

    6.5 Creedmore would be though. I have almost bought one in the AR platform a few different times. Wish I would have now.

    .458 can be built on the AR15 platform. And it's way cooler than the .308. Well it spuds cooler anyway. It would be fun to hunt hogs with. And probably Bigfoot.
