Is The Ammo Bubble going to Burst

Do you Think ammo prices will ever go back down again? I was at my local gun show this weekend. 89.95 plus sales tax for a brick of 500 22lr. 29.95 100 rounds of mini mags. 500 rounds of .223 430.00.

The last few guns shows it appears the firearms prices have stabilized. I saw a few items with price reductions.

I'm wondering the same thing. Or, is our government still buying it up as fast as its manufactured?

The prices I saw this weekend at our local gun show were down right insulting. I wish the NRA would send a message out that its in everyone's best interest to simply walk away from these prices, and stand your ground. With people paying these prices, can we ever expect the prices to return to 'normal'??
Blaming guns for crimes is the same as blaming forks for obesity.

We've had more than enough threads on this subject over the past few months.

Will the bubble burst?

Of course it will. It burst the last time.

And the time before that.

And the time before that.

And so forth and so on.
