It's so awful people from other countries pay criminals to sneak them in...

Go figure, huh?

You know how cars and sport are soooooo boring.
Guns are that boring and more. :-)

Do you think it might have something to do with those $1200 cheques that Trump was tossing about like party favors?

And the fact that all the gun stores stayed open as "essential businesses" while so many other stores had closed?

Perhaps you are right about first time gun buyers. But most of the gun owners I know have bought something in the past couple months.

It's what disposable income is for.

Of COURSE it's a conclusion favoured by my bias.  I happily admit to a certain bias when it comes to gun ownership.

Quote:I stopped by the gun shop I used to work at - and it was pretty busy for early in the day.

I wanted some .223 brass as I had ppicked up some cheap bullets and thought I might spend a few warm days coming up sitting in the A/C in the garage and reloading some rounds. All they had was Lake City (military surplus - which I have plenty but dislike as the primer pockets are swaged and a pain to re-prime.)

I was talking to the owner who took time to say hi... I noted that business was good. His reply - he told me how much he had taken in - and it was astounding. Pretty near record sales three months in a row. Christmas in July.

But - for the most part the shelves are stocked. The manufacturers are working overtime to keep supply up with demand...

....

So all of you who hate guns and want to see them go away - sorry.... I don't think people are ready to join the flock of the unarmed..

Not just yet.

And for the "that's just anectdotal" crowd -

It seems the FBI is of the same opinion.
I love how he thinks this is some sort of problem for Anti gun people or that this is a positive for gun nuts

It's a wedge issue very effectively used by right wing nutbars to compel gun owners to vote against their own interests. Their version of the left wing nutbars assault rifle scare. The focal point for untold amounts of dark money funneled into candidacies.

People are rioting in the street, the economy is in the toilet, we are in the midst of a health pandemic, and people are stocking up on guns and ammo. Way to go Trump keeping making America great.

Is being an ammosesxual that important to you?

We have a world crippling pandemic

A "leader" who thinks there is an Aids vaccine, can't lift a glass of water and tweets about winning a court battle he lost

Mass protests against racial inequality

Yet we got a post about increased gun sales so you could thumb your nose at a group of people telling you you don't need 5 sets of M-16s to protect your side table drawer with 200 dollars in assorted real and costume jewelry.

So news that you don't like makes you testy and insulting....

Still miffed about Hillary, huh?

Give it time. You'll get over it.

I have some CCI. A few hundred rounds.

I prefer Federal 22 LR. I have had phenominal reliability with it. 

And I have lots.

Preppers are doing a wonderful service to the eventual raiders of a post apocalyptic america. Getting all that ammo in one place would be a pia.
