I have been watching ammo prices as they drop and for me a bellwether was waiting for the price of 5.56 to break the $.50 mark. There has been a lot of resistance to that, I assume mostly psychological but I saw a large retailer finally daring to price below fiddy centz shipped, in this case Rainier Arms.
There It Is
What is more, Mrgunsngear posted this deal yesterday and as of this morning it is still available which means people are not knee jerk buying ammo right now. Hopefully this will lead to a lot of others following their lead.
On the gun side, we simply aren’t selling any. It has been dead and a lot of smaller dealers are saying the same thing. My distributors are emailing non-stop to tell us about the inventory they have on hand and they have more stuff on their websites than ever. A lot of them wouldn’t give us the time of day six months ago and now are my best buddy.
Accessories are in good shape, lots of “high capacity” mags in stock as well.
Getting back to normal which means it probably won’t last.
