They surged after his first election. Ammo stocking is what is happening now.

I was at the gun store the day after the election.
Place was packed.
Bought a new Smith & Wesson.

The smartest are those who have already filled a closet with firearms and ammo.

I know such a fellow , he started buying cheap guns when Clinton started looking like a strong canadate.

He has been buying styeadily and the appreaciation of his hardware makes stocks and CDs look sick.

I have lost track of him since his retirement , I wonder if he has started cashing in.

Human beings are physically unable to shoot more than two guns at once. Buying more for self defense is obsessive behavior.

They are morons, or obsessed morons. The federal government does not have the job of preventing neighborhood violence, nor does it attack neighborhoods.

Wrong again. I have pistols for concealed carry, and a shotgun for home defense. I also have firearms for hunting and sport shooting that may also be used for home defense.

That's always kind of fascinated me Plane.
Used guns are almost as expensive as the exact same model brand new.
It's like they lose almost no value with time.
Used guns appreciate and stay side by side with the new one's.
Funny how that works...disgraceful politicians devalue our money thru the printing press
but gold, guns, oil,  just keep going up...

Ditto, except for the shotgun

SIRS...
I have a shotgun at the office, but "H" is right
it's hard to beat a shotgun for home defense.

In the wee hours of the morning, in a dark house, with an intruder prowling about, point and shoot works pretty good. And there's just something about the sound of the pump on my Remington 870 jacking a round into the chamber that tends to stop people cold.

I agree, especially as you rack a load into the chamber.  That'll tell anyone inside to get out, ASAP. 

I have a wife who was very anti-gun initially.  Not quite as bad as xo, but pretty out there.  She's done a nearly 180 as she began to educate herself about gun safety, and the facts involved with lives saved using a gun vs those taken.  And that I've always strived to keep safety the most important feature of gun ownership.  That said, she's still not to keen on having a loaded weapon near us, much less a shotgun.  But she's ok with my pistol.  So that stays within a whisker's reach, while I have another pistol I can use for CCW use.  I have a nice pump action 30-30, which could make for a nice shotgun-like sound, and can be used for home defense.  However it's better suited for outdoor sport shooting, with its scope & long range firepower.  I'm having 2nd thoughts now of having sold my sks with scope several years ago now, before Obama

Gun collections are like bass boats. A grotesque expense with little return. I suppose that antique guns would be different from an investment standpoint.

Yeah, now that Obama is president, all your enemies are farther away, or do they just run faster?

A gun with a scope is ideal for a Ruby Ridge type confrontation, on the other hand. You really need a gun to defend your guns from being taken away from you.

XO, do you know of many investments that have appreaciated as well as firearms and ammunition in recent years?

If times improve and the president demonstrates a willingness to respect the 2nd admendment I expect that the pumped up value of firearms and ammo will decline , therefore I have not overindulged.

But I was wrong about the election and we again have a President who has no respect for the common man and his right to self determination and self defense.

So I have reason to regret that I did not buy more ammunition , large magazines, ammunition and bayonettes.

Not because bayonettes are especially usefull, but because they are included in the assault wepons ban (which is probly coming back) they grow a value out of purportion to their usefullness.

If there are hard times coming , guns , gun accessorys and canned food will appreaciate , I think I can still afford the canned food , if I hurry.
