Went down yesterday to get my first AR. Had sold a pair of single-action revolvers to help pay for it, and the deal had finally closed. Seems that Cheaper than Dirt was out of everything but the high-dollar stuff. Other gun dealers were virtually out of inventory. My local shop had 15 on hand, and had no idea when any more were coming. The dealer said his supplier had shipped 20,000 units the day after the election and an additional 40,000 rounds of ammo. Cabellas had hiked prices the day after the election on AR and related rifles, and the hike had not affected sales. Looks like the gun shows will be the primary source of ARs until their inventory runs out with the price rising for the forseeable future.
