I recall going to the gun show to buy a couple of extra Glock mags. The dealer had raised the price about $10 each. Wah, I complained. He offered me a deal on a whole bag of new ones. Dr. Genius here turned it down. I could have bought 20 or so and then the price went up to $120 for one. Oops!
A guy at the match Sunday said he was stocking up on high caps for the next ban after the election. Don't think it will go that way again.
I think there was more panic in 2008 than way back for the first AWB.
