Hey all, Come next summer I am looking at purchasing my first rifle, specifically a hunting rifle though I'm not 100% on the exact model. However, I also hope to eventually own a modern sporting rifle/assualt rifle type gun. Currently, I have no such use for something like that as I'm in college and it'd just sit back home and be a range toy when I come home to visit. I'd much rather get a hunting rifle for now which I feel is more useful given my situation. I only have the money for one. Leaving politics out of it, next year is an election year and only God knows how that'll go. Given that prices tend to be higher during election years and I only have so much money, does it make more sense to buy a rifle that is currently useless to me just in case I can't get one the year after? or get the rifle I actually want and wait until the election takes place for the other, recognizing this'll send prices back to normal or straight through the roof depending on how it goes? Thanks, please keep politics out of it.
