Some People Are Already Listening

Right after I posted my last entry, Is It Time To Panic Yet?, I saw this in my blog feed:

NSSF: NICS Checks For Gun Sales Jump Nearly 17 Percent

The National Shooting Sports Foundation took a look at the raw NICS numbers from the FBI and made the required adjustments. After all, the NICS checks also include people getting permits and a number of other situations that have little to do with buying a gun.
What did they find?
The February 2020 NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figure of 1,294,123 is an increase of 16.7 percent compared to the February 2019 NSSF-adjusted NICS figure of 1,109,087. For comparison, the unadjusted February 2020 FBI NICS figure 2,776,380 reflects a 36.9 percent increase from the unadjusted FBI NICS figure of 2,028,667 in February 2019.
Anyone who has ever run a business can tell you that a nearly 17 percent increase in sales is a good month.

Well that is good news but we can do better!

As I mentioned in my prior post, the time to stock up is before everyone else does. Things are hunky-dory right now but if Trump loses, you will see a panic take hold of the firearm marketplace like you can't imagine. Guns, ammo, NFA items, accessories, parts kits. All of it. Gone virtually overnight.

If you wait until the day after the election, you are going to be wishing you hadn't.
