Gun shops business booming.
I went to Charleston SC to do a little more spoiling damage to the Grankids, and my Son and his Wife could go out for Valentine's day. Tough assignment but I struggled through. Saturday we went to a large Gun shop and indoor range combo. The place was packed. First timers buying AR platform rifles, handguns, and ammo standing three deep at the counter. We had to hang around for an hour just to get to use the range. My Son knows the happy owner. He told Matt that his sales was already 5 times higher than last Jan-Feb. time period. AR platform Rifles selling for $1400 to ????. 9mm and 5.56 selling by the 500 to 1000 round case faster than he could get it. The fear factor is running high. Stopped at 2 pawn shops we usually check out. There were 2 used Century AR15 A2 rifles at one. Ready for this: $2000.00 each. Springfield XD 45ACP: $800.00 Supply and demand + panic buying.
