Driven by terror threats and a potential Hillary Rodham Clinton administration, sales of guns in America soared to record levels in 2016, according to the FBI.
Just released FBI background check numbers, which roughly equate gun sales, totalled some 27,538,673, 4 million more than in 2015 and nearly double the number in President Obama's first year.

Interested to see what fascinating guns freepers purchased in 2016.
And where is the corresponding spike in gun crime?
HilLIARy: Gun Salesman of the Year
Not surprising considering that Hillary Clinton was in favor of an Australian-style gun grab.
“Interested to see what fascinating guns freepers purchased in 2016.”
I’d love to brag...but my only purchase last year was the sans 4473 variety...so I don’t have to make up stories about boating accidents anymore.
Five for me this year.
I did my part.
I’m losing mine as fast as I can buy them. I’m afraid to take any of them out on the boat anymore.

I wonder how many homemade guns were built in 2016.
My two sons completed their AR-15 builds two days ago.
You can build AR-15, 1911, Glocks and others yourself.
It was nice to see the boys with gun parts splayed all over the kitchen table as they assembled the trigger groups.
I sneaked in under the wire - bought a new Bushmaster on December 31.
I purchased two rifles in 2016. A large caliber and a small caliber.
Enough to make any Pops rightfully proud! d;^)
Six for me last year with a PS90 still on order.
Am I the only one who likes to have backups of favorite guns?
“Id love to brag...but my only purchase last year was the sans 4473 variety...so I dont have to make up stories about boating accidents anymore.”
What story? I’ve been trying to teach mine to swim, but they just don’t seem to have the knack.
And for the record, every time a “ghost gun” is born, Dianne Feinstein hacks up another hair ball.

See previous comment.
“You can build AR-15, 1911, Glocks and others yourself.”
You also can build the AR-15s, 1911s and Glocks from a self-finished 80% lower that has no serial number ...LEGALLY, because the GCA of 1968 does not pertain to ‘hobbyists’ building firearms for their personal use.
The family that builds guns together stays together
