Gun sales surged to unprecedented levels following the Newtown massacre of December 2012, driven by concerns about increased federal regulations, particularly against assault rifles.

Back then, Americans were buying AR-15s and AK-47s as fast as retailers could get them, pushing up prices and creating shortages of guns and ammo.

The stores couldn't order them fast enough. But they over ordered and now there are too many guns sitting on their shelves.

    Depends on how the election turns out. If the Republicans do well we may soon see full shelves of .22s. Otherwise the panic may be back in full force.

    I tend to agree, and this might be a good time to buy.

    One nice new club here has a very nice bar and cigar lounge. You wouldnt like it Serf, your club ID is an RFID card,[:0]

    Once you purchase something in the bar, your ID will not open the door back into the range

    Should put something like that on a voter ID card.

    Once you vote Democrat, you can't buy a gun. [:D]

    I have a feeling that wont last long, either run a bar or a gun range the two together wont work. Also leaves a careless idea the anti gunners will have a field day. Just my 2 cents!!

    Back when I was in college I had the idea to open a laundromat and attached bar called Suds (in a college town, of course). I may still do that, perhaps when I retire.
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain

    Mr.Perfect, great idea get sauced when you go do the laundry. Men would be willing to go wash close at least twice a week. I like it "Suds" Laundry".

    Beers would cost such that returned change from a bill paid with a $5, $10, $20, or $50 would yield at least 1 quarter. For example, with a 8% tax rate, beers might cost $3.47/ea.

    There was a place like that at 10th and Hemphill just off the GaTech campus when I was in school. I had a place with laundry by the time it opened so I think I only went in once or twice to meet some friends at the bar side. It lasted for a while, but since there was a good pizza place with full bar on the other side of the street it had some competition.

    My daughter's dorms have laundry on the first floor. Cost is included in the room and board. No quarters.

    still over priced.

    They need to get those prices down so I can unfold this bank roll I have from gouging everyone in the eye the past 2 years so I can restock for the next ride.

    There is one in Eugene Down near the U of O that has a Wine Dealer right next door and a coffee shop inside.
