My local Wally World got a bunch of Colt 6920's in and has had 1 still sitting there for almost a month now. Panic buying is a bad type of buying too. Things will level out and than buy something if you're that far behind the curve. Hopefully everyone has some kind of firearm here because when things come to it, if you survive long enough, there will be lots of firearms to pick up off the ground.
Well, you do live in one of the worst states in America for freedom of firearms, if not the worst. A 6920 is a complete rifle though, both lower and upper and has a little pony on the side which dictates the price a bit. There going for $1049 here for the standard polymer forearm model here and about $1400 for the aluminum railed forearm versions, which isn't that bad a price when it comes down to it. Especially for those who love the pony on the side.6920s are $1400 out here
3 or 4 months ago my once beloved, but now loathed, Cheaper Than Dirt brick and mortar store was asking $2500 for the little pony on the side, and they were bare bones.
I gotta admit, for a time I the thought of selling, if I had one of course , a pony did enter my mind. Heck, the money from that would have financed a near complete essentails inventory overhaul if you knew where to shop on the private market.
It does look like it may be wise to pick a "best market" marker before the fall and start ramping up before your laws kick in. I totally agree that the sudden demand from the left coast will suck a lot of available product out west in the near term.
