What will you buy After the panic really cools?

An AR, due to people trying to sell so many at once, as prices just go lower and lower?
Maybe a nice Czech VZ-58?

As for ammo, even new Prvi .303 'British' has gone up a good bit.

A 1911, because I'll actually have the funds to buy one finally. And they haven't gone up in price

I've been wanting a nice AK and was about to buy one pre-panic. Now I may just keep saving and get an M1A.

I was planning an AR build but wanted to wait till after I had spent the Christmas budget to start acquiring parts. Well, I still plan to build but I refuse to pay nearly $300 for a $100 lower so I just I'll just have to wait a little longer...

Nothing, cause I ran out of money buying everything I wanted before the craziness started.

It is not going to slow down any time soon. BUT, the gun companies will adapt to the rediculious laws because they need to stay in business. Hopefully we will overcome this left wing socialist agenda to destory our 2nd Ammendment and get the government left out of our lives in the next election cycle.

All you Obama lovers who are gun owners were warned this would happen and you voted for this clown anyway. You get what you deserve and the rest of us are screwed by your idiotic decisions.

Colt 6920 or BCM 14.5 or Daniel Defense 14.5 or AK or M1A or something short and sweet like a 10.5" NFA supressed 300 blackout. I need a loan. Oh yeah, mags, ammo and training. Maybe another safe. Replacement parts, stripped lowers, lpkits. I could go all day.

Ammo for a half-way reasonable price finally, and probably a free float rail system.

I was only a couple months away from having saved enough for a Colt 6920. I guess I will keep saving but that will be my first purchase. I also want a Super Redhawk .44 so it will be hard to keep the money for the Colt for so long. I imagine it will be a year at least untill the crazyness quits and prices drop.

A 12ga. shotgun for hunting and a SAA revolver because I want one. Wishing for a Colt, but will settle on a Urberti.

I have a feeling even after this thing cools down.... there won't be a flood of used AR's and AK's and anything else this time. People were caught off guard and now they are seeing the blatant agenda of Obama and his like minded cronies. I have a feeling people are going to get what they can and hold on to them for insurance against future attacks on our constitution.

I have plenty of AR's, before all this started I wanted a nice AK.... a Saiga 12, and was getting ready to build an AR-10 type rifle. Those are still on my list, but who knows.

Something along the lines of a CZ-75 and a 16 gauge pump. My break action leaves a little to be desired when it comes to serious shooting.

Another Colt 1911 pattern pistol. Probably a Series 80, stainless, with box and manual as nice as I can find and as cheap as I can find it. Or a blue one.

A Sig 551-A1. I'm in the mood for something different.

I'd like a good, reasonably priced 1911, as I don't own a .45 right now. Maybe a Springfield Armory GI or Mil Spec. There was an incredibly big gun show here today, and prices on all 'black rifles' and standard capacity magazines reminded me of the Clinton years.

If the funds were there I'd like an M1A, maybe a S&W M&P-10 when they're on the market.
