You can annoy a liberal, and save money at the same time. Its like some sort of a magical set of circumstances that were created especially for gun enthusiasts on a budget. Gun stores currently have an overstock of merchandise, as sales decline from last years record breaking numbers. To consumers this means sales and discounted merchandise, to the industry it means a slightly less profitable year than last year, and to liberals it means an opportunity to weave an anti-gun narrative.
Brace yourself for a slew of stories about gun sales declining this year. A recent headline on Market Watch pretty much summed up the emerging trend among some pundits: Paranoia has its limits as gun sales slump. In other words: All those crazy, militant tea-partiers have finally stopped buying guns, and now businesses are coping with sales returning to normal.
Gun sales are in a decline from last years numbers But, what did you expect? This isnt a story about the declining interest in firearm ownership, its a story about free-market economics (which probably explains why Liberals dont understand it). Obama, the Democrats in the Senate, and a billionaire-former-mayor of New York City, have all proven to be the best accidental-gun-salesmen in history And thats pretty unlikely to change.

I have enough. Ammo is still high though.
An arsenal can only store so many weapons. Mine is full.
Big Five has been having some excellent sales.
Ammo for many guns is back in stock at Walmart and Big Five.
I don't know. I can always make room for more. May make the trip up to Cheaper Than Dirt in McKinney to see what they've got.
My cousin’s philosophy is, “I’ve got way more than I ever need and not nearly as much as I want.”
He applies this to firearms, bows, ammo, etc.
Never enough. My Father’s Day to me was a Marlin 1895 GS in stainless with a Leupold VX 3 silver scope. 45-70 Govt caliber.
My FIL has so many guns he has to hide them from his wife, who politely looks the other way. They are not antiques, for the most part. Might be as many as a hundred long guns.
Getting him a gun for Father’s Day might not be noticed. He gets a nice recliner instead.
Good selection, mine was an AR15, 20” barrel stainless with 24x scope. Happy Fathers Day to all 2A’s .
Got a few weapons including bows...
You need a “boating accident” soon, to make room for more. Heh.
I do not hold that any ‘special day’ should be reason, alone,
to purchase any firearm.
“Oh, go git ya one ‘cause “the industry” ainta doin’ so good
right now!” BS!
“The industry”is doing fine. It’s getting a whole bunch of
govt money, whether you like it or not! Be it a new/old
1911 pistol, or the govt making the ammo makers
go into overtime, to fill their more-important-than-you-the-consumer
contracts, thereby deleting making ammo loads for
your specific rig, therefore rendering your firearm, useless.
I chose revolvers because they work, and are simpler
than the others. I chose lead ammo loads, because
I do have two revolvers on layaway, though.
I’m thinking about a Ruger 77/44 or a 77/357.
Bolt action carbine for pistol cartridges, with built in scope mounts and rings.
I went to an old mans house one time to pick up a couch his daughter sold us.
We admired the old mans cuckoo clock collection, and she said ‘you should see his guns’
She proceeded to take us around the house showing us closets full of old military guns, a basement full of guns, and then to the garage, which had more guns than I could even imagine in one place.
To say this man had 2,000 guns in his house wouldn’t be any exaggeration, and it’s possible there were far more than that.
I tried yesterday. Been looking for a Winchester Half-Octogon Model 1892 in .357 Magnum. My favorite gun shop doesn’t have one and their distributors don’t have any in the pipeline. I’m guessing they are limited production run guns. I’ll just have to keep looking! :-)
Ruger 77/17 HMR. Just fun as hell.
WE were at Wallyworld last week. Plenty of .40, .45, .223 and even some 5.56. No .22 or .22 mag, 9mm
Ruger guns and Federal ammo. Both made proudly in America.
You have to dress it up. You need the:
The sports car:
Malibu Ken and a friend to play with:
I guess you told us off!
Well wheelguns are good weapons. Basic, simple and easy to use. We have some.
But for multiple assailants I will stick with the semi auto and mine in particular since it has a 30 round magazine. 12 inch muzzle flash and louder than a you know what doesn’t hurt either. :-)
FINALLY. A Gun story without “Sandy Hook” thrown in.
My father is a huge anti-gun pro Obama liberal. Obama is anti-gun, so father is anti-gun. I always thought my father was smarter than that. My parents bought the whole hope and change nonsense. It’s a shame. I’ll buy some ammo in his honor.
Thanks so much. I have it bookmarked now.
Love my .40 XDM. Or I did before the boating accident.....
I do need a 10/22.
Yes, but get an XDM for higher cap mags.
Nice! But night vision scopes are changing so fast I can’t decide when to “pull the trigger”!
My father was the same way. A farmer, so DFL (Democrat Farmer/Labor) was the only way to vote. Plus, those Republicans were so snooty and more wealthy while we struggle on the farm. I get it back then, I was, too. But eventually, I moved away from home and that strict mentality to see the other side, and never looked hack. He and I debated politics for years, even when I could show him the facts, he would not acknowledge his error, but simply sputter and drop that specific subject. Mom voted Rat simply because she was told to. Father smarter than that? No, it has been quoted so many times here, “Liberalism is a mental disease”. He and Mom are both gone now, and in a better place. Miss them, but not their politics.
Dear georgia girl,
Ya missed a point.
Y’all, with your bucket of bullets, are using a
caliber that is govt used, and could be labeled
contraband, by the same.
Y’all with your bucket of bullets, means to me,
that you are depending on a hail of bullets,
instead of maybe as many as three, between
the shirt pockets, or intimidation of brandishing
an ‘evil black rifle’, when a lever-action can do
“Yall, with your bucket of bullets, are using a
caliber that is govt used,’
Which means there will be plenty of it and it will be easy to find. :-)
Good luck killing 4 guys with 6 shots. Superior firepower is never a bad thing.
“Is an XD, from Springfield Arms a
Good deal?...or a Henry Rifle?”
Yes, both, for starters.
A positive attribute of the ammo shortage is seeing what does NOT sell, i.e. like what’s always left in the cabinet at wally world.
Should go buy something that takes what nobody is buying around here. Seems like unfamiliar numbers to me though. (i.e. 7mm?)
No more .22 or 9mm. Been checking since 09.
Dear jor-ja goil,
A revolver has a larger caliber than your 1960’s
McNamara bought squirrel gun.
You forget that placement is king.
You should remember that many a perp was
downed with revolvers.
However, with your comment about ‘being easy to find’
Means to me, you are already purposed to blindly
kill American service members, in order to obtain
Therefore, as a military veteran, I refuse to continue
