This guy has listed a M&P Sport (from the looks of the pictures) for $2300. Two months ago a friend bought one for $550.

I found some standard-capacity S&W 5906 mags. I don't even have a 5906 anymore, haven't had one for years. Maybe it's time to start on Gunbroker myself...
Picked up several new 25 rd M&P 15-22 mags this weekend at $19 a pop. Don't yet own the rifle, but it never hurts to have spare mags.

Back around '04-'06, I made a very conscious decision to change my focus from gun accumulating to gun collecting, and began to divest myself of "flat-black people-poppers".
I kept the custom 1911s, since I carried them, but all the various Glocks and SIGs and HKs and Berettas got turned into more old S&W revolvers. Similarly, I kept a brace or so of AR carbines for practical reasons, but unloaded everything from the old AK underfolder and the custom .223 FAL to the full-pimp HK-91 and the Beretta AR70 in favor of old Mausers, Springfields, Mannlicher-Schoenaurs, and the like.
Now I'm seeing the craziest price bubble I've seen since the Dutch went long on tulip bulbs.
I'm feeling a little sick.
I wonder what that AR70 would fetch on Gunbroker right now?

Are you guys seeing shortages of pistol caliber ammo? I haven't been looking real hard, but was in a Gander Mountain this weekend and they had plenty of everything that wasn't related to AR's or AK's. I'm not sure if that's because it was in a little podunk town, or their prices being not too great, or if there's just not a shortage (yet).
Just waiting on the FAL mag panic.......Come on, baby!
