Price - yes that's my greatest concern right now. I have the chance to get one online at around $400 when all is said and done including FFL transfer. Believe it or not, the prices from a FTF sale are typically worse in my town.
I feel like my options are:
1) buy now. Either prices go down later and I kick myself after the scare is over
2) wait and my online source may dry up (I don't like doing auction sites) either prices don't go down or they do and I buy then.
I also have a suspicion that those who bought an SKS when it is expensive won't want to sell it cheap in a FTF deal.
