I'm of the mind that now would be a great time to buy weapons in a "private sale" and ammo of any caliber. Beat the new taxes coming on both and the taxes for pre-owned weapons. Once the IRS gets involved it's going to get very expensive for gun owners. Then throw in the gun insurance and the gun ban will be moot. It seems ammo is coming back slowly and gun prices are edging down a little, but the government is getting desperate for money so be prepared. The ability to tax is the only weapon the government has total control over and it's coming big time, as I said quite awhile ago!
