Nice Chip! I needed to check that out. I'm headed to a chicago suburb this weekend to pick up some hellrot body panels. Always have to check what crazy law illinois and/or cook county has passed before a trip.

Has anyone been to a LGS today to see prices? I hope Matt can find an XD without too much trouble given its mag capacity is in Feinstein's crosshairs.

all LGS around here are either sold out of everything or are waiting for more to come back in. the ones that arn't sold out of ammo are rationing it like food during a famine

Every Walmart within 50 miles of me is out of everything but 7mm Manner and .17 WMR, it sucks.

Don't know what LGS is, but I tried to get 9mm around here and Bass Pro Shops was out, most gun shops were out, and when I called Walmart and asked for sporting goods the operator said "If you're looking for ammo, we're completely out and so is every store in the Bay Area and Central Valley."

I know from experience that it is not illegal to ship ammo. I bought 10 bandoliers worth of surplus 8mm Mauser ammo for $65 and they shipped it right to my front door. Was about 3 years ago, still haven't shot all of it. Just food for thought.

Local Gun Shop.

And damn, sounds like we're all in the same boat. The only place I can find ammo at is the range and their rationing carefully to support lane rentals. A lesser quality shop has a Sig 556 in stock. Price tag is over $2k. You have to bring your own lube.

I have two reloaders and enough stuff to load 2k rounds, on top of 3.5k rounds of sealed military ammo

I dont think I've bought store ammo in 4 years...

I was going to pick up a Keltec KSG about 6 months ago, but decided to hold off and spend some money on the car. They were going for $850 then, $1,700-$2,000 now.

Good luck even finding one, for that matter.

Looks like it escaped because it doesn't have a detachable magazine like the Izhmash 12 does. I guess the Franchi got tagged because it has a semi-auto mode where you don't have to pump the rounds into the chamber?

I'm in the same situation don, but with a different semi auto.

Another funny twist in the proposed awb: ruger mini-14 tactical is banned, ruger mini-14 ranch is ok.

Matt, the best local shop here has your Springfield in stock. If you can't find it near you look up bradis and get it transferred.

Just bought a set of Trijicon HD novak night sights for the Glock 23, got a pretty good deal on them too. I paid 20 dollars less from an E-dealer than from glockstore.com... not including the free shipping. I'll be reviewing them and posting pictures once they're in.
