So much for that.
Prices are definitely coming back up. Availability is definitely slipping again. I just checked around at a few of my normal places and either stuff is completely out or it is significantly more expensive than it had been recently.
Raw material prices might impact other categories. Aluminum prices are up quite a bit as are steel prices year over year and those are the pricey parts of new firearms. Couple that with the receiver ruling as well as the pistol brace rules probably dropping very soon, we are going to see more pressure on the firearms market in the next couple of months.
If you need to fill some holes, especially in more uncommon calibers, might be time to do just that. I got a few boxes of 6.5 Grendel ordered last week for a "stupid but still lower than it has been" price, so I was mildly pleased about that.
