Stripped AR-15 lower receivers have normalized to pre-panic prices.
Romanian AKM pattern rifles remain approximately 150 to 200 dollars above pre-panic prices.
At my closest Wal-Mart tonight, a small amount of 12 gauge shotgun ammunition, a good selection of .30-06 rifle ammunition, and a decent selection of generally slow-selling cartridges seldom encountered in modern defensive weapons. No rimfire ammunition. No handgun ammunition of any kind. They did have several boxes of .30-30 medium power rifle cartridges, but I suspect they will disappear quickly due to the large number of rifles in circulation chambered for this cartridge and the fact that .30-30 lever action rifles are good dual-role guns -- fitting well into light defensive roles and short to medium range deer hunting.
It's a bad time to invest in defensive guns or ammunition for them. Those who own a rifle chambered for a cartridge popular enough to appear at the general retail level yet not popular enough to be sucked into the innumerable little black holes which have opened in the closets of American gun owners nationwide -- you're in luck if you want' to spend some time at the range without emptying your bank account.
