what we have is a "flash-panic mob" buying anything at any price--
when they run out of $$$ you see prices head back to semi-normal levels --till the next panic anyways--
i doubt we will ever see lowers for $60 again, though we may start seeing them for $120-$150 once the idiots get their wallets and credit cards bottom out.
personally i don't think AR-15 stuff will ever turn into gold for very long,
they are valuable--though not as valuable as the hype . is is sort of like the stock market--99% hot air, panic and greed--it will pass as soon as people sober up some.
