    Default Quality AR15 shortages

    Anyone noticed that there is a shortage of quality AR15's on many gun websites. Why is there a shortage? Someone speculated people were buying now because of receiving tax return refunds. Anything going on we don't know about?

    Not sure the reason, but there very definitely is a buying surge. I find it hard to believe that it is due to tax returns, since we get those every year. I feel it is general uneasiness due to a lot of political and economic issues. Seems we are not at the frenzy yet, like we had after the Obamaculation, but it does feel we are building towards it.

    I dunno. When I got my refund, I seriously considered getting my first AR.

    It's the threat of $6.00 gas! You can justify buying guns when the cost of transportation is so low like it is (pun), when it gets to where you have to make a choice of how to get to work, you'll at least have the gun.

    Save for future gas prices or enjoy the money you now have and worry about gas later.

    I too am curious why the shortage of not just guns but everything. I have waited weeks, months, for a YHM LIghweight Hand Guard and no one has any. In fact there are hardly any parts out there. I know there is a threat of the return of the assualt weapons ban of the past but that doesn't mean everything will get banned. BTW, I don't support ANY type of ban.

    The shortage is due to panic buying by folks who think they're going to be banned. the same panic that is making ammo hard to get.

    It'll die out in 9-12 months anmd shelves will be well stocked again. Just like the 1994 panic..
