When I said marked up, I meant that it's right around the neighborhood of $2K... and that same gun could be purchased for $650-$750 before this whole crisis happened, just to give you an idea.
That kind of mark up is dough to swallow. But people who are freaking out are forking that kind of cash over to anyone who's got one for sale.
Took a note from Nate above and checked Cabela's. They seem to have ARs in stock and don't seem to be gouging yet. Do you have one near you?
