I'm beginning to see the hysteria die down already. Check out Armslist. There are plenty of dirtbags asking $3000 for $800 guns but I'm also starting to see prices come down a little.
I promise that the manufacturers are running 24/7 trying to meet demand. Even after the demand dies down, they'll still be running 24/7 in order to build up massive inventories like last time.
I'm still planning a build in 6.8 SPC for my son. He has an upper limb disability that virtually requires semi-autos with pistol grips. He is 9 y.o. now and I'm trying to make sure he will have a good option (not just a make-do option) for his first deer hunt.
To a much greater extent than most mechanical devices, firearms are terribly unforgiving of any overconfidence, complacency or negligence.
