I can't hardly find any AR15s in stock anywhere. I think the panic is starting again already.

Are you guys dealers? I am not talking about in stores. I am talking about wholesalers. Tell me where you see AR15s in stock and which wholesaler. I found some S&W M&P15ORs at Acusport. That is about it.

Well, talking about it would just exacerbate it.

But, yes.

Yah man, there aint much out there. Sports South has/had a bunch of Bushmasters but I cringe whenever I see one of those lol.
I just scored big on a batch of Colts, but I think they only lasted a day.

My reps are telling me they are already past 08 levels

Oh and I am SOOOO glad I pre-booked a lot of stuff over at SHOT and ACU. I actually have Daniel Defense rifles trickling in, a few M&P sports, and a couple others.

Not a dealer (duh) but I figure I can contribute what I've seen lately from the other side of the counter.

I've been in to ammo bros a few times recently for a transfer, and to look for some things to buy; every time I was in there, a couple people were either picking up lowers, starting the 10 day for a lower, or in the process of figuring out which AR to buy off the shelf.

This is just a small sampling I know, but when you figure that I was in there less than an hour each day, and they were busy when I came in, and still busy when I left, I'd imagine there's a bit more moving than that.

Spike's Tactical is always 2 weeks to 2 months out on orders, and has been for a long time, the last time I heard/ordered from them.

Having put a particular rifle put on layaway at BudsGunShop.com in February, I recently received an email from them stating that their sales in Feb 2012 were 5 times that of Feb 2009.:2guns: They explained that shipments would be delayed more than normal. And it said they would gladly cancel anybody's order if they so choose without any fees since they needed more guns anyway.:eek: So yah, it seems there was some sort of rush.

Why the problem with Bushmasters? Educate me please.

..and yes, it's getting tough to find anything in stock. Virtually every model of XDM was out of stock with every wholesaler I checked a few days ago, but they are trickling back in. Can't find M&P Sports anywhere so I picked up some of the M&P150Rs and more Colts and Bushmasters.

don't think its a panic but sales are crazy.....

Yes there aren't any ARs AKs or much of anything worthwhile just sitting around on the websites to grab.....no glocks....no HKs....

There is some stuff but not much....

Most people outside of Ca are already paying about a 100 ta 200 bux more per rifle in shops....

Saw a S&W sport for 950 bux.....gone the nxt day...:facepalm:

It was funny lot of distros had CA configurered rifles in stock but all the rest were gone....but even the CA ones are gone now;)

An ya bushmasters and a few mps are still hangin around....STAGs are extinct....by my count distros chewed up over 500 M2s in about 2 hours but only 10 per state if ya think about it so they went fast...

Try an find a WASR-10.....

Ammo prices on the rise 223 PMC $247 costa mesa show....315 at glendale...

Gonna be an interesting year for sure.....:oji:

Jerry's may have a few right now, but I have a feeling RSR is going to be getting a lot sometime soon. I only base this on seeing that they are adding Noveske and LWRC, and a bunch of other Black rifle manufacturers. Also, they had gotten a good number of uppers over the past couple days, so I assume the rifles will follow.

Honestly, I didn't check to see which may have been CA compliant. Since I am a Nevadan posting on Calguns, I try to stay mindful of those things but that one slipped by me because we we talking dealer stuff and not consumer.

At the moment, it looks like there are a couple of Bushmaster CA compliant models in stock as well as some 10rd DPMS Oracles that seem to be allocated.

Also, New Frontier Armory (a Calguns site sponsor) is really ratcheting up their rifle production, built on both their forged and polymer lowers, and should be putting out some new stock very soon.

Good luck!!

Everything is getting tough to get...pre-orders I placed at the beginning of the year are the only thing keeping me in-stock on most guns. I wanted to add to my Daniel Defense order the other day and they told me they are sold out of every gun at their current production rate. Good luck

I can't find Glocks (26 or 19) anywhere, anyone know any dist. that has them instock?

I did a search today for Glocks with 8 distributors. All that is available is 17L, 17 Anniversary editions and other odd calibers. I did find Gen 4 G23 and G17 at one vendor but they are now all gone.

Try finding a SA 1911. I talked to them directly and they informed me that they had 0 in stock. Ar's and AK's are back ordered with us everywhere.

I bet the ammo craze will get a bit worse. I think it is already as bad as in 08.

Im very curious to see how it goes...

Yeah, the panic must be here. I just got off the phone with my uncle who's a FFL dealer in Florida and he said he's been selling so many guns it's crazy. All the tactical shotguns are sold and he has 10 on order and 5 of those are already sold. People are really believing this end of the world crap. 10% of me thinks "anything can happen" so I might as well buy a lot of ammo. LOL

You bring up a good point. We're moving more guns now than even during last year's Christmas rush or this time last year when income tax refunds were hitting customers.

I have had a couple of my reps from different distributors tell me that so far they are looking at this year being worse than 2008. Seems like there is literally nothing in stock anywhere.

Well Wes, thanks for the heads up. I called a friend of mine who builds custom uppers and lowers and he looked at his suppliers' inventories, like you did, and while he typed and talked, told me he planned to make a big parts order on Monday. So whether it's real or just a scare, or whether there's any follow through remains to be seen, but it smells like it has apparently begun again. He said he thought it was all these new prepper TV shows driving new gun sales.

It's the 1966 Mellow Yellow banana shortage all over again.

Gaston Glock has a new 30-something year old wife. He needs another billion.

We were told at the SHOT show by Glock that factories were 130K behind in orders. We heard on Friday that the number had risen to 300K.

If you have a Sports South account you can download it. Its called SSIWin.

Really cool program to find items quickly and you can set up markups per category and all. It automatically updates their in stock quantities and all.

OOOHHH... I really NEED one of those!

A friend of mine who works for a company that manufactures parts for a certain rifle has been slammed for orders this year. They are on track to quadruple their output over the prior two years.

This is only anecdotal, but another data-point in the mix.

With the 2012 thing, uncertainty with Iran/ gas prices, AND an election year? IMO the panic started long ago, but we havent seen anything yet. Gun shops are going to have nothing but hooks and wires come October with everything flying off the shelf.
