I noticed this past week a lot of the gunbroker auctions have been ending without bids, so perhaps panic has begun to dissipate. or maybe not....
Here locally in the classified ads I am seeing several AR's on a daily basis for $1000 or less. So the price is coming down, at least on the AR's here in Utah. However, there is no .22 ammo to be found anywhere. I am hoping you are correct and it is dissipating, we shall see in the next few months.
