    I didn't see a lot of stocking up...or gun buying. Certainly not like the last show. There was plenty of ammunition but prices were high.
    Joe said he saw some primers but I must have missed them.

    The online article doesn't show the caption, which I found quite offensive...

    Ed Buchannan of Mechanicsville said assault-style weapons such as his have been fetching higher prices since Barack Obama became president.
    I'm no rifle expert, so I don't know that kind of gun that is... But it's clearly a bold action. Since when is a bolt action rifle "assault-style"?

    It's a Yugo SKS. It is semi, but it is not anywhere near an assault rifle in my book. It was probably made in the 50's.

    If buying wasn't so wild then maybe prices will stabilize. Wishful thinking?
