Default Noticing a trend with used rifles

I'm noticing a trend on used rifles.

I hit allot of older style gun shops that get allot of used rifles in. I'm seeing allot of them sit on the shelf for a long time. If I had an abundance of money I'd have picked up a closet full already.

these aren't high end collector type rifles. But allot of old Winchester's, Remingtons, marlins and savages. Good, useable, hunting rifles. The "classics"
​​​​​
I think allot of the older guys that had these are dying, going into assisted living type situations, or just retiring and thinning down the herd.

Allot of the younger guys aren't too interested in blued steel and wood. So these rifles are sitting on shelves longer than they used to. Although the prices haven't dropped yet locally. I think eventually they may.
