How confident are you that Trump will win?  The prices will creep up exponentially before the election.  If Trump wins they will go down to rock bottom in about 6 months after the election.  If he loses, they will probably quickly go up 50 percent or more.  My advice, pop on something as soon as you are able.

My opinion, for whatever it's worth, is to get hands on one as soon as possible. Based on what I see going on politically, the future looks increasingly rocky.  Even the Boy Scouts have "Be Prepared" as their motto.  Who gets elected President is only "surface topping".  Our society as a whole is crumbling, due to several factors; not the least of which, is a breakdown in basic civility toward other people.  Even today, people are targets for violence if they wear a red baseball cap with MAGA on... and his will only be aggravated by the results of the election no matter who is elected.  If the Democrats win, they will see it as validation of their tactics, and if the Republicans win, the left will double down on the violence.  Make no mistake: the one-world government types (swamp dwellers, socialists, anarchists and radicals of every stripe) will not stop until our Constitution is scrapped and the UN tells every country what to do and how to behave.

 

Remember this: any weapon you have, is better than one you don't.

It's always a good time to buy in my opinion.  The only bad time to buy is when you can no longer buy.  

 

It depends on your needs too.  If you have a couple AR15's you probably don't need a couple more in the urgent sense of acquiring rifles.  If anything, ammo should be your focus along with spare parts - Palmetto State Armory and other companies that sell kits and parts that we should have stored away just in case are a good source for keeping our currently owned rifles running.  If you only have one rifle, definitely get another one.  After that, get some spare parts.  Maybe an extra upper with a different caliber or barrel length.  Stuff like that.  

Or... if you want something other than an AR15... that's a good reason.  Just make sure it isn't some odd caliber that is impossible to stock pile.

Here's a parallel thought:  pistols.  I'm not a big handgun guy myself, but I've heard lots of people say that your first weapon should be a pistol... then a long gun.  Any thoughts/opinions?  Obviously, in the Militia (as in the military) the primary weapon should be a capable long gun, but for those of us without a parent organization, what do you think?

When you are ready to buy your first gun, it should be a pistol for concealability and ability to carry on you more often, if your age allows you to buy and own a pistol your state.  If not then buy the center fire rifle first and get the pistol next.  If you don't plan to carry at all outside the home or have a pistol as a back up weapon during Militia or shtf use then just get a rifle.

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect.....

In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
