I just was browsing Gunbroker and the HBAR AR's aint cheap. Looks like the sellers are reading the news.

In an auction scenario it's the buyers that drive the price...sellers can fan the flames but buyers who don't do their homework set the price. PT Barnum was right.

If nothing else...this is the opportunity for those who bought during the last panic to recover their investments at someone else's expense...just like they did by overpaying several years ago.

Bingo, I know folks that paid damn near 2,000 for a colt H-bar at the height of the panic in 2013, for what should have been a 750 dollar ar-15 at best imo.

Similar. I picked up a non-HBAR in the panic of 2013.

Only firearm I own that is not worth at least what I paid for it.

Maybe I should flog it now.

IMO, any decent AR, but especially Colt's, is an investment that will yield large returns in the not too distant future. I've bought a metric ton of them for just that reason.

I'd be willing to bet there are many folks out there doing the same

the panic of 2013, taught many folks hard lessons, and others how to make money/ a lesson on capitalism
