I hear that guns and ammo were just flying out of our local sporting goods store today. I don’t know if its been that way every day, but it sure was today.
I was in my favorite gun store yesterday 20 minutes after it opened. It's a very LARGE store with 20+ lanes for target practice.
I got one of the last two parking spots in the lot when I arrived. There was a LINE to have FOID pictures taken. Every gun shop employee was busy with customers looking at firearms. I waited almost 30 minutes to get help looking at a new compact 9mm for my wife.
The ammo shelves were already half-empty as I replenished my supply of 9mm and .308's. Picked up a bucket of .223, and three high capacity magazines for my HnK USP9.
Since Illinois now *HAS* to pass a conceal/carry law per a Federal Appeals Court last week, I was also looking for a holster for my HnK USP9 and a holster for my wife's 380, figuring it's best to pick those up NOW than after the law finally passes and everyone wants them.
Spent 2 hours total in the store, by the time I walked out cars were circling the lot looking for parking spaces. It was a MAD HOUSE. Every time these stupid Democrats start talking gun control, everyone seemingly heads for the gun shops.
