Audience Participation Time III Posted on January 19, 2009 by peterJanuary 19, 2009 In the comments, have you bought any new guns due to the Obama election, and do you plan to?I didn’t, but I did move ordering an upper for my AR build up by a little bit, partly due to the election.Share this:FacebookTwitterMorePrintEmailLinkedInTumblrPinterestPocketReddit
I didn’t buy any guns because of Obama, but I did stock up on magazines and ammo.
I purchased a new Kel-tec Sub 2000 and a P3AT…
Luckily I had all my major purchases out of the way well before The One ever got to the primaries – and well before prices went nuts.
Like Alan, I did stock up on mags, ammo and components though. Also got into casting.
Ammo and mags too.
Yes, I bought an AR and a Sig P229R and a bunch of high cap AR & pistol mags.
I’ll buy another AR lower when the prices get somewhat reasonable again. Oh, and I’ve been steadily stocking up on ammo. I’ve now got a few thousand rounds of all the calibers I need.
I ordered a M1 carbine from the CMP right after the election. Wife added a Beretta 92FS to her safe. Both were purchased because they would fall under a possible ban on firearms designed for military use.
While also stocking up on ammo and reloading supplies in general, I’ve also been going a bit heavy on 7.62×25 Tokarev in case that round gets classified as “armor-piercing”.
Yeah I overpaid for an Armalite AR because my younger son didn’t have the bucks and I wanted him to be able to have one when he gets the cash. also picked up a Sig P226 for the bride, since she like my P229 in .40 S&W. Didn’t really buy it as preemptive anti – Obama move, but now that I think about it, the 12 round mags would make it verboten under a new Dem AWB.
