There's a good chance that some of the newer and smaller dealers will go under.

The big question is this: how long can you go without cash flow? At the moment, everything (and I mean everything) is allocated. Dealers are looking at a possible two months' worth of drought on product.

Even then, the available product will be snapped up by Bud's, CTD, Cabela's and the like, leaving local dealers to grovel for crumbs. Prices are going to go up. They have to.

Assuming supply is a bit better in March, you'll have another bout of hoarding every time someone opens their mouth about gun control on the news. It's going to be a long year, and some dealers won't make it through.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
