The markets way down

Has anyone else noticed that the market is WAY down on practically everything. A large part of my pay check CAN come from sales of weapons that I find personally rather it be at a gun show, arms list, a cheap BIN on gunbroker...... A bonus you may say.... BUT... I cant seem to find any good deals anywhere. Everyone has become wiser on what they have.

When the craziness happened I was able to make a killing flipping firearms, everybody was hawking there family heirlooms to fund there $3000 entry level AR's...Those were the days!

At the same time I cant give guns away, I've got a near mint condition Wilson combat that I NEED gone this week to help pay for that new grenade launcher. (actually I need to flip about 5k more this week) it's not lookin good folks.

I still can't find .22 anywhere. Everything else seems to be back to about normal. It's nice not walking around a gun show seeing places asking $2500 for an M&P15.

The hysteria driven market has subsided back down to normal around here (and from what I've seen online)

I found 5k rounds of .22LR when I cleaned out my laundry room over the weekend. Must have bought it a long time ago and then forgotten about it...

So you're saying I can sell this for ~$1350 an ounce?

Yeah, probably. All the gun shops still have restrictions on .22LR ammo. Cabelas, Gander, etc.

It is awesome that the gun crazies have finally gone back to there holes. Besides 22lr I can finally get ammo from a store again. It is so nice not to have to plan out my ammo purchases and to be able to swing by a store and pick up some rounds to go shoot for the weekend. I was hoping there would be a bigger dip in prices but I'll just count my blessings with the current market.

I can't find .22 on the shelves anywhere local. The 1000 rounds I had on back order since Dec 2012 for $80 was finally canceled last month after getting delayed over and over again.

good god... no wonder they have it in stock. If your paying $8.50 a box your nuts. That's $85 a BRICK.... Even $45 a brick is over priced but it can be had.

That 1863 is cool shit. I don't have anything that goes that far back yet. I'll probably start with a single action army at some point. The percussion revolver stuff is a little too old school for me I think ha

Is that the Wilson combat you bought that has a stupid high amount of rounds through it?

Hell, I'll give you a penny for it right now. No pesky auction wait times needed.

No, I actually sold that one for $2650 months ago. I picked this one up for 2k IIRC right after that, its practically brand new. I could get more for it easily but I am limited in time.

Listing a SVT 40 and a model 37 S&W tonight.

I found .380 Auto in stock at a Walmart friday night. There was probably 2 cases worth on the shelf. I had been drinking, was slightly intoxicated, and didn't even want to try buying... (wife was driving) - went back on Saturday, and it was all gone.
