Totally Didn't See That Coming...

From Aimsurplus.com

"Due to high order/back order volume we are currently experiencing a slight delay in shipping. Please allow for an additional 4-5 working days for us to process your order. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause"

Faced with an Obama/Biden White House and a Pelosi/Reid Congress folks are panicing and stockpiling all they can now. You can't blame them. I'm doing the same, and my credit card and checking account are hemorrhaging like crazy.

I can't say that I expect an onslaught of federal anti-gun measures to come down the pike right away. I guess that'll all depend on how ambitious, power-hungry, and downright stupid Obama, Biden, and the Dems are. I have almost no faith that they remember 1994 or have any capacity to learn from their mistakes. They are politicians after all, and diehard liberals at that.

I seriously doubt Obama or Biden would hesitate to aggressively help push any anti-gun legislation they can. Why? Obama is from an insulated bastion of anti-gun liberal policies. As a Chicago politician there's never been any risk to him supporting all manner of gun-control laws.

The same can be said for Biden. Yes, Delaware is infinitely more pro-gun than Cook County IL, but Biden is basically a shoe-in for re-election in Delaware regardless and being a flaming anti-gunner isn't going to change that. I honestly believe Biden could get re-elected in Delaware if you put an (R) next to his name.

Honestly, I think there's the possibility of a perfect storm headed our way. If I'm wrong then great. Either way it can't hurt to have a few extra goodies stashed away. Plus it gets the anti's panties in a bunch.

UPDATE - AIM's site now says 10-14 working days delay and even Ammoman is delayed roughly a week. That explains why my case of 5.56 hasn't shipped yet.

If you can't find an AR, then look for a lower receiver. You will probably be able to get those for a short while longer.

Ammunition and magazines will be first on the chopping block as far as legislation goes, but demand for ARs and AKs will clearly outstrip supply for the next few years.

Well, I just bought two M1A 20-rounders and a PPS 8-rounder (big as they come) last night... and two DPMS lowers tonight. Now I need to find AR-15 magazines...
