Default Springfield xd for what?

The xd essential package on "closeout" for $469.99 was not long ago on sale regularly for $399! What gives? Why should a handgun be getting the same treatment as an AR? I've noticed that Turners has jacked up the prices on everything from a 10/22 to shotguns. Now this? I believe in capitalism but this is just not right!

Simple supply and demand. When demand rises, prices rise as distributors and retailers try to make their monthly margins with the available inventory in the whole marketplace. It happens with produce too.

And, it doesn't. I hope you remember, now that you have related it to stupid Hollywood crapola. That is a good second place to staying awake in school.

Same up here. There is a LGS that is a preferred S&W dealer and sold the M&P40 for $479.97. Now, they sell it for full MSRP at $569.99. This LGS are D-Bags anyway so no loss for me. They are getting shipments of bulk AE .22 and break,king them up in 40 round boxes for sale at $3 per 40 round box. They are also selling .223 at $0.86 to over a $1 a round.

My hope is that once supply catches up, prices will level off again. I was talking to the lady who orders inventory up at a LGS and she said that they've stopped taking special orders because she doesn't know whether distributors are going to raise their prices after this quarter. She's still charging her old prices at the store for what she has left in stock, but she was worried that her margins were going to take a hit if she kept taking orders at those prices. So, for the retail seller, sometimes they're not wanting to raise prices, but the ripple through the supply chain pushes them to. I think price spikes are a good indicator that our economic system works. It helps lower demand and helps move supply to the places that need (want) it most. In the long run, the market will keep trying to normalize itself in this manner.
