Demand for ammunition, handguns and large-capacity gun magazines remains heavy, local stores say. The buying frenzy continues more than three months after national and state Democrats began calling for more gun controls. Sales still are going "through the roof," says Nancy Johnson, manager of Johnson's Sport & Ski at 315 Court St., one of the city's oldest sporting goods stores.

Bought a 90-year-old pump-action .22 last week at what I consider to be a bargain.

Seems most folks are interested in the AR 15-types and the semi-auto handguns.

Of course, there was no ammunition.

Details? Pictures? I have a Winchester Model 90 octagonal barrel. I have no idea what it is worth. Chumley is too far away.

Had one of those as a kid. Mine was a Model '92 Winchester as I recall.

I thought it was a 90. I may have to double-check. It’s a pump.

This was a Savage Model 25.

Octagonal barrel, brass blade front sight, checkered forend and stock. Had the engraved Indian Chief on the butt plate. 36,000 manufactured in the early 1900's - this one is in the 9,000 serial number range.

No photos. Couldn't even find any online with the checkering.

Gun control is popular.

65.4 Million Guns Bought Since Obama Took Office, 91% More Than Bush's First-Term Total

And in the last two months... (Dec. 2012 and Jan. 2013)

Americans Buy Enough Guns in Last Two Months to Outfit the Entire Chinese and Indian Armies

With gun and ammo dealers.

I think you’re right about it being a Model ‘90.

Ammunition and reloading supplies will probably be more available by fall, when the bipartisan political/regulator class in government and services depend on hunting tourists in CO for extra revenues. As for summer, well, if the drought continues through this year as predicted, recreational firing of firearms will be outlawed again under fire bans.

The Uberdork started this.

And methinks he is not going to like the finish.
