Some Texas Retailers are Starting to See Gun Inventories Being Replenished

The AR-15 is one of my top three favorite guns to shoot, but lately it seems that the gun and it's ammunition have gone through the roof. A friend called me from Dallas last Friday, he asked me if I still wanted an AR-15. I told him "yes but I'm not about to pay these absurd prices everyone is asking for AR's now, besides I'm in radio I can't afford it." AR-15's are selling for as low as 1,100 to 3,500 dollars, it's simple low supply and high demand. According to my friend Craig Stephens, there are several stores that are getting in some good shipments and the prices are down. A couple of stores in the DFW area are putting AR's out by the dozens.

The 2013 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits is Coming to Houston May 2-5

I have always dreamed of going to the Consumer Electronics Show and the famed Shot Show but both are held in Las Vegas every year. The cost of airfare, hotel accommodations, meals and tickets to each event make it almost impossible. However, The National Rifle Association (NRA) will be holding it's 142nd Annual NRA Meetings and Exhibits (NRAM) in Houston, and I know that I'll be asking my boss for the time off so that I can attend. The NRA show travels to different cities every year, this year it will be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston, promising over eight acres of guns and gear.
