The market speaks

And they’re up after the election. Meanwhile, anyone who loaded up on guns before the election may have a sad that they didn’t go up in value.

    I bought a lot of ammo (about a years worth, which for me is… well, a lot) as well as “equipment”.

    I’m not sad. I’d much rather have the excess supplies than be faced with “use them or loose them”. Guns and ammo seldom really go down in value so they can eventually be sold off if needed or my kids don’t want them when I’m done with them.

  2. Lyle Says:

    Yeah, I never bought a gun or ammo thinking I was going to sell it for more than I paid. That’s what dealers do of course, but that’s different.

  3. HL Says:

    Any loss in potential value is dwarfed by the relief I suspect we all feel.

  4. Ron W Says:

    @HL, yes! I agree. It’s likely that gun and ammo sales will go down with a President Trump who consistently espoused a pro gun rights message. But one can never be too well armed and especially have too much ammunition.

    We got Kate Brown here in Oregon. Not sorry at all for that $400 magpul purchase. Or the G20SF purchase.

    Why would they have a sad? They have a gun.

  7. Patrick Says:

    I needed ammo anyway, and it’s not like the stuff goes bad.

  8. O_W Says:

    My ammo goes bad all the time. The powder oxidizes and the bullets keep getting lost downrange.

  9. Jeffersonian Says:

    I like the “Tombstone” reference in the headline. Nice work. And I don’t feel a bit bad about the crate of standard cap magazines due to arrive tomorrow:)

    Well, I needed the gunpowder. and primers. and bullets. and stuff…..

    Gotta remember: “You don’t pay too much for a gun, you just buy it too soon.”

    I beefed up my ammo stocks, particularly on ammo that had to be imported. There was a touch of a premium immediately before the election, but I got fair deals. Depending on how long the protesters keep things up (I-95 in Richmond was blocked tonight, had to detour), things might get squirrelly yet. The panic buying frenzy might not happen, but gun owners mindset has permanently shifted.

    Meanwhile, Ruger is down by almost $10, but it’s recovered before.

    A small price to pay, my friend. Also, I’m buying….😉

  15. Pete Says:

    RGR shit the bed on Wednesday. It lost 1/6th of its value in session.

  16. Sigivald@gmail.com Says:

    On the plus side, they have new guns!

    Buying them as an “investment”, in the economic sense, is a bad call.

  17. JohnG Says:

    You’ll still need them for the endless rioting to come.

  18. Standard Mischief Says:

    If I can soon buy .22LR at Walmart again, it will be worth it.
