If you buy anything on an auction site, you are why prices are skyrocketing
Manufacturers and distributors have not raised their prices on guns, gun parts or accessories by a penny. All of the sudden price increases are due to profiteering (aka gouging) by those gun store owners and sellers that would scam you for too much money for too little product.
The only way to prevent such gouging is not to partake. Let those who would buy up everything in order to sell them at extreme prices eat those items. It is time for all good Americans to realize that ARs, AR parts, magazines, ammo and accessories will be freely available for a long time to come.
If you buy stuff on the auction sites or classifieds for ridiculous prices, you are the reason the prices are ridiculous. Supply, demand – math.
