Been there. The household budget. Car parts or fishing gear? Bullets or "butter"? Submitted for your consideration: car parts will always be available, at fairly stable prices. Firearms, ammo, related parts and accessories, in very near future may not be. If Hillary returns to the White House, and/or the Dems take House and Senate, along with SCOTUS, you can anticipate a repeat of the great ammo famine of 2009. ARs and related parts will vanish. Prices on shotguns, rifles, and handguns will skyrocket, and then they too will vanish. "Invest" in your future.
