Many are not buying as they figure prices are up but honestly if one is looking for something the lowest price maybe right now. Just look at building materials. Things never really return to what they were. In 1980 I can remember buying a 307 new for $300. Today used they are selling between $1100 and $1400. How can they come down when all Winchesters new are closing in on $2000 and they were up before the pandemic.
No money around either. Many are just trying to hold on not buy guns right now
The big drop out west in the oil patch has hurt a lot of people all across canada and then the virus hit to take even more out of their good paying jobs
Terrible down this way the guys home that have not been unemployed for many years some have not had work in over a year or more
Awful to say but not a bad thing right now to be on a small fixed pension
Have a friend that has made baby barns for like 25 years for his mad money. Quite a few a year and normally has a list right now to make .
Had to stop says no one will pay him for what it costs him now to make one until lumber prices prices drop which is figures won't be this year and he was buying full skids of plywood and 2x4's to get the best price possible so cannot do any more to get the price down
