    We have all read the numerous stories regarding record gun sales over the past several years. Many attribute this acceleration in sales to Obama and fear of a Clinton victory. Now that Trump has won, do you think sales will slow?

    My prediction. Short term the market will slow down. Prices will drop and some of the smaller manufacturers(AR builders) will go out of business. The demand will slow down. I bought multiple things this year that I would have rather put off buying for a year or so. This doesn't apply to ammo yet. CA new law will have to go into effect before the ammo demand goes down.

    Long term more product development. More ammo manufacturing capability.

    But what do I know? I thought the witch was going to win.

    As long as prices remain stable now is the time to buy what you need. While the environment is friendly. There are still going to be gun control movements on the state level thanks to Bloomberg and his type but I think national level gun control legislation will be marginal at best.
