    BACKWARDS? Obama Drove Gun Sales Over The Top: Now Sales Plummet As Trump Steps Up

    The the most ironic of results, anti-gun President Obama drives gun sales to an all-time high with 19 months of straight increases in background checks, accelerating as the prospect of another President Clinton approached.


    People Have Stopped Buying Guns Since Trump Took Office

    Now, gun supporting President Trump vows to support the Second Amendment and gun sales have been dropping ever since he stepped into the Oval Office.

    It makes sense as freedom loving Americans feared the restricted ability to purchase firearms and the increased possibility of there being a good reason to need one.

    According to the New York Post:
    what was once a booming business is now flooded with product

    Same with ammunition...people were panic buying EVERYTHING and manufacturers were kicking stuff out the door 7 days a week. People bought their "lifetime" supply of guns/ammo in the past couple years...now budgets are blown.

    These ARE the "good ol days"...prices are going down by the day...dollar cost average your magazines/ammo/gun collections. If the past is any indicator of the future, it is going to swing the other way pretty dramatically. Stock up now, boys!

    This is true, but look at the positive side, if Clinton would have got in we would be jumping thru our ass to buy anything we could and probable by
    now our 2nd Amendment would be in jeopardy , let us enjoy while we can.

    Last time I was in this big LGS the Amend2 AR mags were $12.99. They used to sell for $6.99 or $7.99. Closer to the election the prices kept rising. I checked and they didn't go down. I try not to do business with them. I have a bunch of Wolf Gold in .223. The most I ever paid was $319+16 shipped. It's now $279+shipping for 1000. These schmucks had it for $398+ our wonderful 9.25% sales tax. The Wolf is sealed on both ends, and boat tail. Accurate stuff.

    I tend to avoid the big box LGS unless it is something i need immediately. There are a few smaller stores with decent prices, but if i had to pay 9.25% sales tax i would do all my shopping online! I routinely see AR mags online for 7-8 each if bought in bulk - but LGS still asks 15-16 each!

    Wolf gold is great stuff...it is 223 loaded to near 5.56 specs. I may need to buy a few more cases at 280 per thousand!

    I just bought guns because I wanted to buy the guns I bought. No POTUS had anything to do with me buying or not buying.

    For sure right now is "the good old days." Damn! Saw an upper, and a lower from PSA that would be less than $475 with Magpul furniture put together.

    I have a giant stack of PSA waiting for me when i return home next month! Magazines are the biggest shocker to me...when you buy the package deals, the PMAGs work out to like $6-7 each. I plan to save some money for the upcoming memorial day and July 4th sales!

    My problems are.
    1. got married
    2. need to build a house
    3. just got a Champion 52 gun safe. It's jammed beyond capacity in the long guns.
    4. I am waiting for TDOC to call for a home inspection so I can move the wife up from Florida.

    All my guns, and ammo are leaving the premises.
