I have not been in a shop in a while. How are the prices on hand guns? Have they also gone up at the shops?

Haven't really seemed to, but the pickings are getting slim in the common calibers.

Guns Galore in Fenton jumped the prices of Springfield XD's from $460 to $569 as of January 1st. They said it was a manufacture increase but Williams prices haven't increased yet. The selection is getting slim though. No sub compact 9's at either place.

A month or two ago i went into Huron valley guns and almost shat a chicken when i saw their prices, fast forward to last week i bought a .38 from them because it was a good deal, not saying that all their prices are great but they seem to be catching on, Powder keg in howells prices (which already sucked) have almost doubled on damn near everything however, example= $1400 for a WASR-10, or 35.99 for 50 rds of .38 spcl ball ammo, dude must have said that supplier prices have "doubled"6 times in the ten minutes i was in there.

So far huron valley is the best store I've been in locally. And powder keg is a joke. I bought my glock from him. I went in and looked at it. Told him I'd be back on fri, as I was waiting on a check. When I came back on fri it was marked up 100$ more.. I told him I would go elsewhere and than he said he would honor the original price. I've only been in there once sense then. Seems like a sketchy operation when he lives up stairs and yet there only open 2 hrs a day during the week.
