How is it where you live! A local store normally has an entire rack full of used long guns and a display case of pistols (used and new). I went in last week after cleaning supplies along with a cheapie rifle case and was supprised to see the rack with about half of what it normally is and the case less than half. The place had probably 10-15 people looking at the weapons which is a huge crowd for this place. It took me a while to make my purchase as they (the owner and his two minions) were busy answering questions and helping other customers. Very busy!! I believe scarey is the correct word! The range that I frequent has doubled business from this time last year, lot's of Assault rifles and pistols. I think some of the sheep are waking up finally, I'm filling in the holes in my battery as well, quickly as possible!
