Well I went to the "stocking dealer" I mentioned earlier to hopefully look at a DPMS rifle. That was the most sparsely stocked gun store I have been in in many years. Asking about ordering one seemed to be a problem. He wanted just about the suggested retail if he could find one. It was explained to me that there is an AR shortage. I guess he hasn't been to a gunshow lately and seen the tables full of ARs for sale.
