Hussein the Magnificent, Lord of the TelePrompter --- best weapons salesman EVER. (Finally: a use for Democrats!)

I wonder if this sales dropoff will result in lowered prices. I'd like to get a second Ma Deuce, for the back 40.....  :wink:

If you lived in Virginia you could check out the next gun show in Roanoke or visit a few of the flea markets opening up in April  :wink:

I've watched mail-order bulk .22 ammo drop from slightly under 8¢/round to just over 6¢/round since November.  Good thing, as I'm down to my last 10K rounds, and not about to spend the 15¢+ they were charging there for a while.

Broke open a 500 round brick from my oldest stock just the other day - had a price sticker on it: $8.00 on special, down from $9.60.  The good ol' days.....

Sorry, too far for me. But if you see a nice 40mm grenade launcher, keep me in mind.  :smile:

For what it is worth: six rubber bullets for $14.99. Everything else? Lethal.
