Will the current buying frenzy keep going?
Get worse than it is now?
Or slow down and get back to ''normal''?

I fear it keep going for a bit myself. What do you all think?

When Obama got elected my friend went on a buying frenzy that was epic in proportion. I talked to him yesterday and he is doing it again. One would think that if he had enough guns to fight off whatever it was he was going to fight off with Obama he would still be able to do it with Biden. But I guess not. A Democrat administration is the best thing that can happen for gun and ammo manufacturers. They will sell everything they can put out the door. Personally I have more guns than I can carry, so I'm good with guns. I sure wish I could get my hands on primers and powder though. To me shooting is a sport and hoarders are making it tough on my sport. I just want to go to the range.

I feel things have changed for good. Gun control has been inching up on us since 1968, but I feel the Biden Administration will put it on steroids.

BTW: Where was the NRA this election??? It's like they disappeared.
They're fighting for their own survival and it looks very questionable whether it will survive in its current form. There is a good chance that they will lose their current charter and the physical assets may go to the NRA Foundation-specifically the museum and collections.

The President is just one third of the federal government. Even if the worst happens and Biden doesn't serve a full term and Kamala Harris takes over doesn't mean we will lose our gun rights. The Congress I believe is quite red right now. And we've got a mostly red Supreme Court as well.

What concerns me the most is gun and ammo companies being able to recover from and keep up with the demand, particularly ammo companies.

Stocking up (or stocked up) is great, but if you cannot replace what you shoot you will be reluctant to shoot. Especially true if ammo become currency.
What good is a $31,000 bit coin if you cannot access and have the means to "cash it in"? Will your common stores accept "bit coin"?? The internet and the traffic through it can be easily "disturbed". Ammo can be a currency in many transactions. Cash in the future (due to inflation) will be near worthless. Just MHO.

Now that Biden is going to be president. Future gun and ammo supplies??????????
The Second Amendment will be assaulted as never before, in the history of the United States. They will revoke the firearm manufacturers protection act, allowing firearm makers to be sued out of business. Then ammo manufacturers will be targeted and sued out of business. Then powder and boolet makers, accessory suppliers, etc. IMHO, this nation is pretty much done for. It is all downhill from here. We will devolve into a second and possibly third world nation, as socialism and communism take over.

Last time I checked the House and the senate were both under Democrat control along with the white house.
The only thing to slow them down will be any moderate democrats from states and towns were there are a lot of gun owners. But that will just be a speed bump.
Buy wherever you can, as much as you can.

You might note that between the riots and looting of the past couple of years that work place and mass shootings have been down (go figure). Kids have been out of school, yes, but they will go back.
I think the likelihood that some "incidents" start back up this year is good; and with it will be the rhetoric, renewed.
