As long as the gun debate leads the evening news night after night, prices will remain or even climb more. Its taken a toll on everything gun related. Ammo is non existent in some cases, prices exorbitantly high in others, components such as powder and primers are climbing in price if you can even find them.
Give it some time, when the mid-term elections come up, no politician will be talking gun control and in turn the media frenzy will shift elsewhere.
I wonder how many politicians own stock in the firearm industries????
