Buying Frenzy Insanity Abounds
Sure enough, I went to my local GS and saw consignments for cheap ARs for over $2,000. Yep, even the old S&W MP15 without forward assist and ejection port cover listed for $2,000. I saw a Delton for $2,200 and a Colt listed at $2,800. Sure as shit, while I'm standing there I see the Delton and Colt go out the door.
I also saw 20-round Hungarian mags for sale at $50 each. I noticed that all the Glocks and Springfield XD pistols are gone so I guess now the frenzy has moved onto semi-auto pistols. A lot of empty space under the glass now. I was thinking maybe I would grab a XDS .45 if and when one shows up. So far they haven't raised prices on the handguns (yet).
Yep, think I will simply step aside for a few months and watch from the sidelines. This insanity is amusing but I can well afford to sit this one out. I did buy another cheap Mosin-Nagant for $120 but it had the brass fittings and is in pristine condition so I figured why not. Still have a couple more "fun guns" I would like to get but prices are just nuts so I can wait. Besides, I bought some Silver Eagles at the coin shop.
