no carbines and likely summer vacation costs

I would guess several things:
Summer has people gone away

Guns of all variety are cheap right now - except CMP prices have gone up instead of down with the market in general

Full racks = low chance of pending unavailability = no panic buying

It will be chaos when/if the pistols hit the shelves

HI Guys,

I would like to see a few 03's or 03-A3's on the racks too.

I don't think the 1911's will sell well for the $1000 or more, that has been rumored about.

I have talked to many shooter's & collectors in this area & a few times at gunshow's in two states. Only one guy thought he would buy one at that price. I'm a older guy & remember how loose & worn out, most of the 1911's were years ago.

Best to all,
broom

Thanks for the updates as always. I have having to restrain myself to keep from going and buying another Winchester. I have been slowly downsizing but I have this beautiful six-digit SA that has a wonderful donor Winchester barrel that is crying for a receiver of it's own. Hopefully I will find a stripped receiver for it one of the days before I break down and make the pilgrimage again.

I plan to make the trip for a Thursday visit. Looking forward to it. Not so much to the 12 hr drive.
