I went to a LGS indoor range yesterday to shoot with a buddy. I was early and looked at the toys for about 45 min. What a crowd! The store usually has 4 or 5 guys working the counters. Yesterday they had 8 and they were all busy. I saw 2 ARs go out the door, leaving them with one in stock, and a couple of handguns. Almost all of the 13 pistol lanes were in use while I was there, which is unusual for a Friday morning, even with more people off work this close to Christmas. There were also shooters on the rifle range.
I had heard the stores were crowded, just had to see it for it to sink in. One good thing was the number of families with kids shooting.
