you may have never intended on buying it but now you did lol

think about the interest you'll pay etc - don't get what you can't afford.

IMHO right now's the time to buy. Even if you dont need or want one of these rifles its going to be worth ALOT more in the future.

Look at the NFA items. Before 86 you could buy a sten for $295, BUILD one for $80...... Now there what? $4000+

It wont be long before your basic AR is $2000+

ARs are kewl - super kewl

but that's like me buying a PRS custom with dragon inlay - it's overkill - i just want a good sounding electric guitar with a sweet tone.

Why is it overkill when I have a semi-auto hunting rifle that shoots much more powerful rounds?

You dont understand that the same AR is going to be double the cost in a month or so?

Buy the damn gun, sell it in a month and buy two friggin guitars

In the case of a PRS custom he's talking about, he'd need to invest in a few ARs.

shooting an AR takes very little skill with a sight - i know because i have very little skill hah and i was able to nail distant targets with hits clustered together - it's amazing how little to no kick you get.

im not familiar with a hunting rifle - does that big kick ?

Depends on the gun, the markets funny right now but if you hurry you MAY still find one for about 1k on the low side, they run up to 25k for factory RR guns, alittle less for AR conversions, NFA asside until last week you could get a entry level gun for 1k.

The markets going up and its not going to drop next week. IF you can find somebody to sell for a decent price you wont loose money any time soon. Wait until the panic buying really cranks up when congress is in session, its hard to tell where prices will be then.

On one hand, I could flip all my useless junk in a couple weeks and make bank. I could probably afford that FA RR I've been wanting. Although.... part of me wants to hold on to my future ban stuff just to see where it goes....choices choices.

Dont know or care if your trolling, all I know is this little stunt is going to make me about of $$$. The only things I really care about are some of the harder to find high cap mags.

The term assualt rifle has been loosly used i think , an assualt rifle is what our military soliders use, fully built , fully automatic weapons , Americans who know nothing about guns will call any " scary or intimidating" looking weapon an assualt rifle. You can simply change or add a suppressor, stock , barrel, or hand grip and make any gun a quote un quote "assault rifle". Technically yes we can own fully automatic assualt rifles with a sh** ton of paper work on top of lots of money , taxes and fees as some of us know already. People have rifles for diffrent reasons the ar just so happens to be a well built gun thats easy to shoot and great for target shooting... AR is getting so much attention because of political 'Pitty"...

You're all safe from "tyrannical government", but how are you going to protect your kids from a guy like Lanza?

Do they make baby 9's for your babies?

No just curious.

I'd take advantage of the gun buyers too and make profit.

Panic= $$$

Bro your preaching to the F'ing to normal people like ourselves.

Gun people are going nuts for more guns

Other side is letting passion overtake reason.
