You guys are mentioning hours. I'm seeing stuff sold out in 10 seconds!

During the day, yes, but not in the middle of the night. I've been buying ammo like crazy lately using Gunbot in the dead of night. I've even figured out when particular websites start posting the next day's (hour's, lol) stock. I'm confined to only a few retailers because of where I live and I'm still doing ok. I have .223 coming this week and have just recently stocked up on 12ga and even .22LR.

If it's sold out in 10 seconds then I'd guess there wasn't very much to be had, or maybe was even some sort of mistake of the system.

No, but a quick look on ar15.com, et al, suggests they're OK.

Well with the Assault Weapons Ban off the table(for now) maybe things will get somewhat back to normal.

Thanks for the link.

I ordered 45 ACP from TargetsportsUSA back in the beginning of January. Still hasn't arrived. Many emails back and forth and even some very unsatisfactory phone calls (to say the least). It was 'in stock' when I purchased it, but has been 'back ordered'. OK.....every discussion is 2-4 more weeks. "Oh? Do you want to cancel the order?" Hell no. They practically beg me to cancel. The prices are rising so much, I'm sure they will have to sell to me for a "loss" in their eyes (if/when the get in stock....which I suspect they do have in stock.) I'll surely never buy from these jokers again. Rude people on the phone for sure. But, I can wait 'em out. I don't quit that easy. Side rant...sorry.

I have dealt with M&A a bit...I'm a repeat customer, for both small parts and accessories as well as upper and lower parts kits. I have good things to say about their parts and service.
