Not dead just not the same market we had 20 years ago and will never experience again. The last happy time is over, no more crates of $100.00 rifles to dig thru, today a person has to know what they want, find it and probably pay a lot more than it's really worth.

Black Hills Shooters Supply and Brownell's are the 2 vendors I used most that honored a C&R License.

I think it's pretty dead. I let my C&R lapse years ago.

The ammo cost/availability issue is a bigger problem for me than the initial firearm costs though. I used to like buying different types of ammo and seeing the differences as much as anything else.

Last week I ran through some of my old Bulgarian Tokarev ammo. Quality it was not (watch out for split necks!) but it was the cheapest center fire caliber around when I bought it.

Also need to break out my m39 one of these days.
