I bought all mine this past year during the slow times with great sales. Figured I might as well stack em deep. Not sure I bought enough, but I guess time will tell.

Sadly, one day we may miss those $8 pmags or under $30 Glock 33rd

not unless the government starts to get really serious in crafting a gun control bill. and it will probably be more an "assault weapons" ban, making it hard to get AR15s, so i might buy a two or three lowers to squirrel away for when i decide to build an AR style rifle.

Understood, but it would already be too late if we waited for that. With all these rinos representing us, you never know man.

How come the right always has to make concessions? Didn’t see Obama do #### for the repubs.

Too bad Trump wastes so much time giving in to the left that will never vote for him, and completely gives up on his backers who actually like him and voted for him.

here is the deal, if an "assault weapons ban" bill does start to be written in earnest, it wont happen overnight, but rather take a few weeks to get written, debated, rewritten, debated again, until one house finally puts a bill up for a vote. and that vote can take another week or two to actually get done. and any AWB bill will originate in the house at this point as that is where it is easier to get something passed there. if the house indeed does pass an AWB bill, then it goes to the senate, where it again has to go through committee, and start the whole process over again. at that point is when it makes sense to buy up the necessary items to secure your purchase of an AR15 or what ever other weapon that might be in the ban list. in the case of the AR15 and its family, you just need to buy the lowers and any magazines you want.

as for the right compromising, they havent yet learned how to lead, but they have learned to make deals.

as for trump, as long as he gets things done, and makes the effort to show he isnt the tyrant the left claims him to be, the better off the republicans as a whole will be. remember trump is a deal maker, and that is how he gets things done. if he can show himself to be open to what others want, and be willing to make concessions to get things done, he makes the democrats look bad when they back out of the deal at the last minute on some trivial matter.

Well written, I guess I forgot to write the main objective of my first post being low or sales prices on standard capacity mags and availability/in stock at most online retailers.

You are correct about the deal making aspect, however, we often lose more than we gain when making deals with the enemy.
The last admin did nothing to work with the other side and with the current R control, I see no reason to compromise when they are all in power to get things done or partially accomplished(a half way is a big win for the do nothing govt).

Thanks for the thought out post.

The chances of some type of “gun control” legislation passing is very high.

What form and how bad it is has yet to be seen.

The stuff I have heard floated about a min age of 21 to buy a gun.... um ok I don’t see that doing much and they sure as hell had better raise the draft/enlistment age to go along with it.

Extended background checks... depends on what can be included and how many cross referenced reporting agencies must be used to ban a purchase. I don’t trust the government in any way to do this in the right way.

Banning assault rifles. That already happened under President Reagan. Banning what is incorrect called “assault rifles” is wholly unacceptable and unconstitutional, just like prior ban mentioned.

With how worthless and eager the current congress is to be all buddy buddy with the socialists and how untrustworthy President Trump is proving to be I can see a very restrictive ban coming.

raising the age to buy guns i like. it wont really do much, like raising the drinking age didnt really do much, but its not a deal breaker.

tougher background checks, ok, but how about we start making sure we have better reporting of things to the FBI. for instance teh guy that shot up that church in texas should never have been allowed to buy a firearm given he was dishonorably discharged from the military, for a variety of issues.

one of the things that has been floated that ould be completely unconstitutional though is putting people on the no fly list, on a no gun buy list. that violates the due process clause of the constitution, and there is little recourse to get off either list. thus you would only need someone to get you on the list, and you are screwed.

If anyone is short on magazines at this point in time, it's their own fault. I have more than I could use as a civilian in my lifetime and enough extras to put a downpayment on a car if a ban passes.

I wouldn’t bet my life on that.
Control of the house, senate and WH with Gorsich on the court. Most major legislation is dead at the federal level. Has been for some time. The Dems are scared of it, see how effective Obama was when in office.

Buwahahahaa

You trust the legislature and Trump?

Ahahahahahahahahahaha

Being in MA, we've been screwed for long since i can remember. AR's are no longer sold in gun shops, and you need a PD-granted license to buy 1 round of ammo.

I can see this sort of legislation being rolled out nationwide at some point. The politicians here love to flaunt it as a success. Basically, your criminal record is up for review at any point in time and if you commit some drug or violent offense at all, they will pull your permit and seize your firearms. When you apply for a license, your record is reviewed. Got caught with a joint 40 years ago? You are now a prohibited person and cannot buy a firearm. Legal bills to challenge it will vary from $10-20K or so. You really need to be a "legal saint" in order to own a gun here.

So, yeah. If you hear talk about expanded background checks, national licensing, etc....you might find yourself on the wrong side if you gave some minor legal issues from your past on your record. I'd worry about that more than a revived AWB.

I'm far from a fan of Trump but the republicans and him aren't going to agree on any major gun legislation that would ban guns. The republicans know they'd be crucified. Obama wasn't able to get it done with control of congress I don't see that changing now.
