Last time I was in the LGS (Sportsman's Warehouse) it appears that just getting TO the counter is an issue.
Just after the 2008 election they were down to 1 pistol in the handguns area. Things were that crazy.
But since this is a somewhat more directed craziness, you might find your dream rifle is still available. But getting served will be a LOT more difficult.
Colorado's "instant check" had an 11 day backlog a few days ago.
I saw a 3 hr backlog 6 months ago. Now it's nuts. (Or is it ?)
