The last time this happened with the ammo, it made me happy I don't own a .380 when I was seeing $50/50 rounds of ball ammo.Yes, the last 6 months I have watched it first hand.
I am not part of the gun grabbing, but the AR I am working on just happened to land right now. My lower has been done forever, and the upper I want is backordered like 3 months.
bpipe is right though, ammo is even worse. I can't stand it, the people buying it don't even shoot it, they just want to squirrel it away, or worse, resell it later in the year.
IMO, if another ban passes, it will be permanent and a California-style all-out ban (register or surrender). There will be no provision for selling/trading/ transferring "preban" items (guns or magazines).If some kind of AWB gets reinstated, I want my AR to be "pre-ban", in that it was made before 2013.
That's why I would never visit or move to California! The whole state blows!IMO, if another ban passes, it will be permanent and a California-style all-out ban (register or surrender). There will be no provision for selling/trading/ transferring "preban" items (guns or magazines).
California has always been a good bellweather for gun control. You guys wonder why pistol grips and flash hiders are illegal to have on the same gun? Ask Roberti & Roos in California. The 1994 Federal AWB, upon which the current NY AWB derives from, was itself modeled on prior California legislation.
The California law got even tougher in 2000. I was in CA in Dec 1999. There were lines out the door for stripped lower receivers ($500 each)
If you think the NY AWB sucks, go see what kind of hoops the CA guys have to jump through.
The politicians will learn from their last mistake (sunset, unenforceable "preban" designations). Any new AWB that's worth the political capital to pass will be much harder on us than the last AWB ten-year-test-drive.
