    WHy didn't someone warn me?

    I went to Academy to hold the Ruger American 1 last time before I bought it. They had maybe 20 pistols and no ammo. I was like wow. I told the wife let's go to Cabela's, same thing. I did pick up a few boxes of 308 just cause.

    You do know what this means don't you?????

    After the election all of these weapons will be on the used market cheap!!!!!!

    April of this year, more guns were sold in one month than any other since records began to be kept. I can't remember the number, but it was more than a million.
    May was a little behind.

    Edited to add: I just googled it, there were 1,797,910 sold in April 2020

    That was good. And true.
    As for weapons being for sale cheap. Don't bet on it. Good firearms hold value over the long term. if you jumping into firearms to flip them and make a buck, I hope your lose your tail. If your buying to insure you have what you need. Hang on to it and you lost nothing. Buy when you. Remember how fast some states shut down all FFL for awhile? Nothing stopping them for doing it again. Bubba why aint you got a gun? Ah man I was waiting on a deal you know. Then there was nothing left for me. Some thing you don't play the market with sell high buy low. You keep what you have and add to it as needed over time. Cost averaging.
    The only firearms I would buy used would be ones no longer manufactured new that I truly wanted.

    More than half of my firearms were bought used.
    But, then, they were wood and steel made by respected American manufacturers. Colt, S&W, Remington, Marlin, Ruger.

    As far as used guns being available cheap, those panic buyers probably didn't know a lot about weapons, and even less about selling them.
    They will go to either the local gun store, or pawn shop, and THEY will buy them cheap. And then mark them up to full price and pocket the difference.

    Biden has no chance of winning. He will not get Bernie voters and he alienated a good chunk of blacks. Even with fraud, he has no chance.

    This will be a brokered convention. I suspect the reason they pushed the convention back is to bring in a surprise so the GOP has less time to debate and show them for what they are.
