    If it were anything like the one in Fairbanks it was pure comedy. $1,900 no name bare bones AR-15s, $80 dollar bricks of .22LR, $950 1,000rd cases of 5.56 and $800 SKS's.

    I even heard one "seller" that was about to sell said 1900 AR to a kid that looked to be barely 18 "oh you didnt hear Biden say? Obama is doing new executive orders on Monday you wont be able to buy this next weekend."

    That is when I left and went to sportsmans and low and behold they had 3- Colts for $1,199 a $750 Bushmaster and a $900 Wyndham AR and plenty of ammo. Some peoples children.

    Yep crack heads still trying to get those prices look on alaska list, and other forums as well. GNG has had 4-5 AR for a week or two ago no inflated prices same ones everyone that bought one bought one now its the turds trying to turn a last minute profit before the market bottoms out in a month or two. I hope people remember these turds and wont buy from them again.

    I was just at a Cabelas in TX over the weekend and they had racks of bushmaster and other brand AR's at the old prices. Literally piles of them with what I would consider normal levels of interest. Most folks just noted that it was nice to see them on the shelves again as the walked by to buy something else. Now 22lr was no where to be seen...

    I went... Wasn't much of a gun show and didn't see very many deals and yes I did see some creative pricing to say the least. Still fun to get out and donate to a good cause.. I even took the wife and kids and they had fun..
