Yeah, Gun Sales Are Up.

I stopped by my FFL's house to pickup my latest "high capacity assault pistol" and he said he's done more business in the last few weeks than he usually does in a year! I'd say that's a good indicator that gun sales are through the roof.

The one problem he's having is he can't get orders filled because manufacturers are out of stock. He's a Sig Dealer and has a bunch of 556's on backorder. Apparently there was a run on them and they disappeared in all of 2 days.

This was Sig number 4 for me and I haven't bought a single gun from him. I feel bad about that, but on the other hand why pay him more if I'm finding good deals? I'd also forgotten the gun I bought had night sights, so that was a nice surprise.

The problem now is that I injured my stronghand wrist in a game of pickup basketball over a month ago and it's still bothering me. I doubt it's going to get any better than it is right now, so I need to just head to the range and see how things work out.

I ordered that FiveSeven last week along with a Kel-Tec SU16c. Apparently I am no more choosy on gun looks than I used to be at closing time at the local bar.

Hey, if you love how it shoots then looks are secondary. Guns are just tools.
