I made some significant purchases in preparation for this election. Built a spare AR, bought 2 cases of 5.56 and 20 ish each AR and Glock mags. Yesterday, obviously early I personally urged two people to get some more mags for their handguns and have at least some ammo on hand.
Now it is very unlikely any sort of ban will happen. Do I regret my purchases or actions?
NOT AT ALL!!!
I mean I didn’t do anything crazy like do that stuff on a credit card I couldn’t pay off. I did what I could with the money I had.
I don’t regret it at all. Why? I bought stuff I can use and wanted. Probably front loaded my gun related purchases for at least a few months. The way I look at it now I have more time.
In the short to mid term since I front loaded a lot of gun stuff my next quarter or so’s purchases will likely be non gun stuff. I need to round out some other gear and want one of those new FLIR scouts.
In gun stuff I am going to build an AR pistol. Yeah I did that before but saw a couple game changers. Got to handle a sweet one that probably cost 3 grand. Mine won’t be that fancy but I am taking the core ideas from it.
In the long run I am probably going to get into the AR-10 game. I messed up when I got the FAL. If I keep it or sell it is an open question.
Politically I am neutral about this whole thing. The only real up side is President Trump does not want war with Russia. That means the odds they will drop our power grid and things will go all One Second After are substantially lower. Gives me a few more years to get my stuff together.
