Gun Show Observations

At the Tanner gun Show last weekend, here's the score. The guns are back, for the most part although anything "tactical" tends to be overpriced still. At least now they are at 2X normal instead of 3X, which is an improvement.

Ammo is back as well if you don't mind free-market capitalism smacking the hoarders up site the head. $.80/round for .223 and 9mm pistol is ridiculous, but it's down from $.90 at the previous show.

People were asking $80/550 brick for .22. Don't know if they were getting it, but I was happy to point out that I had just bought 3 half-bricks (333) for about $14/ea so there is light at the end of that tunnel at least.

The solution to high prices is to boycott the product. It won't take long.

I agree. Just be patient and keep
your promise that you won't ever pay more than 10 cents per 22 lr round. The flippers live hand to mouth and after spending all the trailer rent money on ammo, they are going to lower the prices when the rent is due.
