Target Sports USA has Speer Gold Dot Hollow Point 135gr +P Short Barrel 50rds boxes, $19.99, if anyone it interested. I guess the 38SPL isn't in enough demand to rate a price bump or LE restriction enforcement (yet).

Just to clarify:
BFGC has 124gr HST's for $19.99 as long as you're an LE and you must provide your credentials to purchase.

Except apparently you can register using their form and become a "qualified customer" allowing purchase of the product. No definition of what constitutes a "qualified customer". Roll Eyes

Just a bump for LDD's excellent thread...current events and all.

LDD and SIGForum Friends - If the mid-term elections result in the Democrats gaining the required number of seats to gain control of the House do you see any action being introduced that could cause the current situation related to our 2nd Admendment rights being infringed? Thanks. Mark

I'm not worried as long as The Donald is in the WH.

On the other hand, what is being done at the state level is obscene. I expect more state nonsense after the election. So, It all depends on which state you are in.

How would anything the House passes get through a Republican controlled Senate or be signed into law by a Republican President? I'd be more concerned about another artificial panic created by irrational fear.

In the case of CA, once Gavin Newsom is elected, gun owners will face a whole new ballgame that even Moonbeam would not touch. And the state is already such a wasteland when it comes to firearms rights.

Must we gin up panic at every turn. I mean I get it if you are the seller of said wares and hey more power to ya but for the rest of us let me lay it out for you.

If you are a gun owner you need to treat it like the stock market. Buy low, sell high.

THERE IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE A THREAT OR A BAN OR A.....etc. stock up on what you need when it’s quiet. Vote and write and be active when you can.

Point is pick up an AR mag or 3 every paycheck. Or a box or three of ammo or a lower or..... or..... etc. if you do this you will quickly find that during the panics you will wonder what you will do with your 30,000 rounds of .22 or wonder how you will store your 20 AR/AK mags.

Don’t mortgage your house, just but a tiny bit of what you want everytime it’s available and you will rarely ever worry about a panic. Hell if you THINK you will want X gun in the future.....buy a few mags now.

NOW GET OFF YOUR ASS AND VOTE DAMMIT.

FIFY, but I agree completely. Wink

Gun show this coming weekend here. I get the feeling people think that the radical socialist Polis is going to win.

The last few shows have been slow on ARs and the like. I'll be able to observe first hand what the public thinks of the election.

I may not have 200 AR mags but I have a shit ton of .22. Smile

I factor in 8-10 mags minimum for every gun purchase and I ...... frankly.....have too many guns. Frown

My heart goes out to the poor people living in the once great Golden State, but if anything good might come of this, maybe they'll push a few bridges too far and a couple good cases will reach the SCOTUS, with decisions in our favor.

I don't see "panic" level demand following midterms, even if the democrats win. I do think that retailers will see a slight increase in consumer purchases if Democrats should win a congressional majority, but demand will not outstrip supply like it does during true panics.

If there was going to be a big spike after, you'd already see the first signs of panic now, before ballots are counted.

The Trump Presidency creates the perception of a significant obstacle to new Federal-level gun control legislation. I have talked to FFLs in other state (already have the pulse of those here). The general consensus is "we like Trump, but while he's been in office, gun owners feel safe from bad legislation and don't spend as much." It's a logical, if simplistic conclusion.

Edited to say: state-level legislation is much more certain, but less likely to cause panics simply because even if demand in X state spikes because of X-state specific legislation, FFLs in X state can import stock from other states which aren't affected by the same state-specific ban. That's very different from what would happen in the case of a national ban, where there would be no "safe harbors" to procure more supply from (in the case of a national ban, it's each state for themselves).
