Prepare: Bulk Buying Assault Rifles

I mentioned on a recent post about the new availability of AR15 rifles on several gun sale sites. Since last summer or so, the AR15 and AK platforms have been next to impossible to get online or in person.

The prices are still high, but AR and Ak rifles are slowly coming back in stock. Blame good old greed for the sudden increase in supply. There is money to be made when the shelves have something available to sell. Up until recently, gun stores, both online and in the brick and mortar world have had nothing to offer save paint guns, air soft, holsters and 12 gauge shells.

I generally check Impact and Classic Arms (because I like the owners and their philosophy) for the latest news on what's really available. Both companies feature new and surplus AR and AK rifles on their sites.

The latest twist has come from investors getting in on the American firearm buying rage which is sweeping the land. If you are a collector of anything, coins, comic books, art, Beanie Babies, you know that when an object attracts attention and a potential high rate of financial return, the "speculators" come out of the woodwork to get a piece of the action. The Wall Street Journal put up a story about assault rifles as an investment recently so that means more deep pocket buyers will be checking potential market returns soon.

Then I found how the suppliers are reacting to this development. Check out what Impact is doing.. Those are some fine looking rifles! And why stop at one when you can get a great price on ten. Keep one AR15 for yourself, one for the wife, a couple for the kiddos and sell the rest for a handsome profit.

That's right. A 10 pack of Colt M4 rifles for the discriminating buyer. And specifically marketing to the investor seeking a safe place for his hard earned FRN's in our tumultuous financial times. Perish the thought of investing in beach front condos, fine art or blue chips, the practical and savvy investor is putting his money in the bang bang market. Hey, Colt is one of the best blue chips I can think of.

Some of these AR's might even get shot once in a while, but most likely will sit in their "original packaging" for even better returns.

For the rest of us, this may mean something else down the line to consider. Imagine going to the estate sales of the formerly rich and famous and coming across a rack of Colts finest available to the highest bidder? Strange times indeed.
