Palmetto State Armory ain't too insane, but they run out of stock quick. I'd say touch base with your local forums, see if there's a supplier with special offers etc

Just bought two for $150/each. Not great for "pre-crisis" pricing but a good deal right now. Check with Ace Sporting Goods in PA. That's where I got mine and had them shipped to my FFL dealer local to me.

Armslist, http://www.armslist.com/ , is very active in South Carolina. there is a ton of black rifle stuff there - some of it may be reasonably priced.

Very few good deals on armslist right at the moment. The price gouging idiots are out in full swing.

Are they the idiots, or are the people paying their asking prices the idiots?

Supply and demand is at work here, but nobody is forcing anyone to pay.

Yep. Only the buyers are idiots. I've listed stuff flat out saying you're an idiot if you buy it at this price, and still get people who buy.

On Sunday night I put 1000 rounds of shitty steel case Russian. 223 on Arms list for $400 and had a dozen emails before I went to bed. When I told people I already had a buyer they started offering me $500 then $600. Good grief. It's not gouging when morons are panic buying. The guy who got the ammo for $400 acted like I was doing him a favor.

Depends on what you want.....Don't you hate those answers.

I like the P1, it has a little more history going for it, ammo is going to be a little more easy to find....however I will not fire anything more than 115 grain in mine no matter what others may say....so that is a little hard to find these days.

The CZ could be used as a CCW if that need is there, but while it would not be my first choice as there are better guns out there, but in its price bracket I do know that people use it for that.

The ammo for the CZ is going to be a little more crazy, and I know of no american company that makes it....if the world keeps going nutty, who knows if imports will still happen.

If it was me, as I have other guns I would take the P1, If I was on a budget and wanted something to carry I would take the CZ.

At the gun show this past weekend, I saw 2 guys lay out almost $2500 in cash to the little old couple selling reloads. The 2 guys bought every round of .223 they had (3600 rds). The poor folks couldn't even get their table set up. They sold their remaining stock on 9mm and .40 before I was gone, so about 45 min.

Oh, and I saw 3 stripped lowers on sale for $300 ea.

The BCM table had uppers going for between $700-1500, and people couldn't get the cash out of their wallets fast enough.

shout out to Palmetto State Armory in Columbia SC. They got in a couple cases of lowers; ran up to Columbia and bought two. FOR THE NORMAL PRICE. Cost me not even a tank of gas in the KLR. Worth every penny to me. Out of 3 cases, there were 6 lowers left when I got there. Unfortunately, they don't do orders over the phone, and they are kinda slow at updating their website. You have to call the store location to check on inventory for mags, lowers, etc. Just wanted to let y'all know that there are local sellers out there not gouging prices.


They'll be getting my future business...

These guys are just down the street. They've always been higher $$$ than all other local shops, but have a decent inventory. I'll have to swing by and take another look!
