Thank You, Trump

“President Barack Obama was the greatest gun salesman in America — until Hillary Clinton ran to replace him. Sales soared to records because gun owners feared they would impose tougher gun restrictions.
 
Now that a Republican endorsed by the National Rifle Association is in the White House, those supposed villains have disappeared. Sales of guns and ammo are falling, right along with the stocks of gun makers.”
 
See How President Trump is bad for the gun industry – Feb. 3, 2017
I don’t have much to say that’s good about Trump but anyone who wants to buy firearms or ammunition this year should find demand is lower and supply is great compared to last year when everyone feared Hillary was going to seize firearms etc. Of course, that was nonsense but manufacturers could not keep up with demand and prices rose dramatically. Already I see many more retailers offering components for ammunition that were scarce as hen’s teeth last year, like powder. It was up to $50/lb last year and now you can find it for less than $30. I like that. Keep it up, Trump. Keep on fooling people as long as it benefits me.

    I never saw a high-demand on anything, but then again, I build my own. If I want a case of say .300BLK, I make a phone call to my buddy Eric and the UPS guy drops it off in a few days.

    Reloading is a waste of time, and can be dangerous due to misloading.

    SHRUG.
