I heard the same thing from a local prepper here, but it was something to do with monetary/financial cycles, and having been 7 years since the crash of 2008, and other related things. Who knows? We can only be the best prepped as we can be, but having a proper rifle/ammo/training is top priority and should be considered by lurkers/newbies as a first procurement.
I will say to them that the M1A is My SHTF rifle.

Oh yes! While I like AR15's, nothing penetrates barriers like a 7.62N! Well......nothing semi-auto!

You should have a look at we are facing in Canada come October. Could be real bad on the politics of guns.

Love those art shots with the plow and the rock and the steel !

What breed are those Bullpups ? One looks like an FN

I personally know some of the lurkers and a good many of the lurkers would like to, someday, own an M1A. Your opportunity is coming.

Pick the options you would like to have on a slightly used / safe queen ( NM, loaded, etc) and write the price down as of today. Between January 1, 2016 and March 1, 2016 you will have an opportunity to pick up a weapon of similar condition for 25% less than you see it listed for today. This should be your incentive to save your money.

Just my gut feeling.... What do you have to loose?

I wrote this OP on August 20, 2015. That was 5 months ago to the day.

I just received this email from a well known, respected ammo supplier:

The warehouse crew gave us the nod and we're taking a queue from Wall Street today - time to sell off ammo at freshly discounted prices!


Hopefully some of you have put aside some cash in order to take advantage of the excess inventory at some of the suppliers.

I don't see a quick ending to this economic down turn so you will have a couple of more months to take advantage of some of these deals.

Hard times will bring good people together.

God how I hope you are wrong. I prep but hope to heck to never need it.

Did we ever really recover from this? It seems that our economy is being propped up by QE and BS.

I don't think "Lurkers" can read this thread. I think the Geedunk is of limits to guests.

Just a thought.

I have just returned after a long absence. I dunno what it is. I always wanted an M14 and bought a loaded model...put it in the bloody gun safe - and forgot about it! Oh, I watched the Iraq Vet on Youtube and loaded up about 400 rounds too.

Last weekend I dug the stupid thing out and fell in love with it all over again...

You don't know love until you shoot it. Caution: Shooting an M1A can cause sudden urges to purchase other M1As like a SOCOM
