Posted on 04/08/2019 1:40:33 PM PDT by marktwain
With more and more states using CPL in lieu of a NICS check, and more people getting their NICS card, the number of NICS checks is becoming a less reliable way to measure total gun sales.
In the last eight years, I’ve purchased 6 guns and had only one NICS check, and that is because Dunham’s Sports has a corporate policy to run a NICS checks even for CPL holders.
There will be fewer nics checks as more states pass constitutional carry (no permits).
Have the good guys reached Maximum Gun?
We have no more room in our safe.
No such thing. I have reached Minimum Money on occasion though.
My safe is full but I can always add to my ammo stash.
This is good news in a way. Gungrabbers think sales are off so they can still go “3% of gun owners own 90% of the guns!! They’re a shrinking minority, we can punish them at will!!”
The war against liberty goes on.
Yu know, after the first couple of hundred guns, you really don’t need many more.
After the Obama years, most sane people who wanted guns had already got them ???
What were the statistics leading upto the 2016 election where that traitor hillary MIGHT have become president ??????
Most right thinking people armed up and stocked up prior to the election in case of a win by Hillary.
I recently had to add a shelf and do some serious re-arranging. I used to keep some gun-related non-firearms in my safe. No more. I've got odds and ends all over the place now.
That’s just a drop in REPORTED gun sales.
All the illegal guns and weapons getting shipped in from China every day don’t count at all.
I used to keep some gun-related non-firearms in my safe.
We managed to wedge in vital documents. Time for a bigger safe.
We added an underground space that’s 10 x 20 - that should be good for a few more years. Then we’ll build another one.
We Will have to get a Bigger Boat!
I’ve done my best, especially in the C&R trade. Somebody help me out. Now, if somebody were to buy me a gun or two...
Tell me about it. My safe has become totally overwhemed. This summer I'm going to pull the safe out and turn that whole closet into an armored gun storage locker.
Could be. Prices have been low. Could be fewer multiple gun purchases. too. 1 gun or 6, only one check is needed.
