After hearing Obama admit to wanting new Assault Weapons legislation, I'm wondering if the run on supplies has begun?

It was already brisk. When I went to my LGS just outside of Greensboro the owner mentioned he was having a great year in sales. He also said he was already having problems getting AKs. This was on 10-10.

I walked out with a new AR and a case of xtac just in case.:whistling:

Has it slowed down in the last 4 years?

Don't expect it, after Romney wins there will be a glut.

Glad I just finished my LR AR. Sure, I'd like to build a couple more, but I'll wait until after the election. Might add a few more PMAGs and some pistol mags, but that's about it.

My local store says business has been pretty strong all year. It has picked up somewhat in the last few weeks, but not like in '08.

I already have three. Another one is on layaway and another planned purchase coming after.

No job so no running out to buy an AR. But I did mention to my wife last night that I really need one if another AWB comes through the pipeline.

No job for me either, so I can't afford an AR, otherwise I'd definitely be getting at least one. My goal is to have four or five ARs at some point in my life.
